The former chief strategist said the Democrats’ impeachment efforts stem from the Democratic primary process and the Iowa caucuses.

“There's no heat on any of those candidates,” he said. “There's no personalities out there that can beat the president. There's no -- the policies are so radical.”

Bannon’s comments come in the days after the GOP-led Senate voted not to include additional witnesses or documents in the impeachment trial, likely securing President Trump’s acquittal in the coming week.

But the former chief strategist says he says the Democrats will still push forward with their efforts to remove Trump as the year continues.
