In the interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 The Answer in New York, Bannon expressed his deep concern for the president and his administration amid the impeachment inquiry, stating that Pelosi will "impeach the president of the United States on two counts: one, abuse of power; the other, obstruction of justice."

He went on to say that many of Trump’s supporters are "in shock" that the president is going through this process and that they need to "wake up" to what he says is a campaign of untruths.

Pelosi "is running the most sophisticated political warfare, the most sophisticated political disinformation campaign," he added. 

The former Trump strategist went on the radio show to promote his new podcast, "War Room: Impeachment," a project he started to fight the current impeachment proceedings. Bannon has returned to Washington to go to bat for the president, as he believes that the White House does not have an adequate defense strategy. Bannon said that he is dedicated to providing the public with facts. 

"They’re winning right now," Bannon said, adding that he "set up a war room, and we’re doing a show every day for one hour just to give people the facts and the details of the witnesses, the testimony, the legal arguments. ... We’re going to go every day, seven days a week, until the day after President Donald J. Trump ... is acquitted."

Bannon was banished from Trump’s inner circle when Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury” divulged that he had been bad-mouthing the president to the journalist. 

Defense of the president by the former staffer follows an impeachment inquiry launched by the Democrats in the House late last month to investigate Trump’s alleged dealings with Ukraine on a July 25 call.

The Trump administration has alleged, without evidence, that while in office, Biden pressured Ukraine to fire a prosecutor presiding over an investigation involving Burisma. Those claims have not been proved to be true.
