The White House has been lobbying aggressively to maintain the authority, against a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers - conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats - who say the act compromises civil liberties.

"It certainly wasn't something I expected, and it's certainly not something I feel good about", Wolff said on ABC's "The View" when asked if Bannon's leaving was a direct result of the book's publication.

To the editor: The only forces that can control President Donald Trump are the Cabinet and the Republicans in Congress.

Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon stepped down from Breitbart News on Tuesday, capping a stunning rise and fall from the political fringe to the West Wing to whatever is fringe-ier than the fringe.

Last July I wrote a letter to The Press criticizing Trump, Jeff Sessions and, most especially, Steve Bannon.

Since excerpts of the book were published, President Trump and his advisers have all but excommunicated the erstwhile adviser, who helped make Breitbart News a right-wing powerhouse before the 2016 election, then steered Trump to the presidency as head of his campaign.

Mr Bannon appeared to enjoy the support of Mr Trump up until last week, when excerpts from a new book detailing the inner workings of the first year of the Trump White House began to be reported. In response to Bannon's having called a June 2016 meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russians "treasonous" and "unpatriotic", Trump said in a statement that his former colleague had "lost his mind".

"Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", Trump said. Bannon and Wolff cease-and-desist letters, citing an alleged breach of a nondisclosure agreement Mr. Bannon has supposedly signed.

Bannon's departure from Breitbart came as a shock to some of his allies.

Burck confirmed to Law360 on Thursday that he is representing Bannon.
