Steve Bannon: Donald Trump Could Be Ousted By His Own Cabinet

Former White House senior adviser says President must get serious.
When Robert Mueller handed down indictments to Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, and George Papadopolous, earlier this week, sending President Trump's White House scrambling for a cohesive message, Trump sought advice from his former senior adviser, Steve Bannon - who then told Trump to "get serious," according to an interview in Vanity Fair.
Mueller is reportedly gearing up to interview West Wing aides, and Bannon wants Trump to lawyer up, so that the President had a check on his legal team's "unchecked power." Bannon told Trump as much in a series of phone calls earlier in the week.
The problem, Bannon told Vanity Fair, is that he believes the President isn't acting with enough force, and failing to command respect from those responsible for enacting his agenda. Without some level of cohesiveness among his top aides, advisors, and even employees, Trump, Bannon believes, is vulnerable to attacks from both outside the White House - from so-called "Establishment" Republicans - and from within - including from within his own cabinet.
Two weeks ago, according to a source, Bannon did a spitball analysis of the Cabinet to see which members would remain loyal to Trump in the event the 25th Amendment were invoked, thereby triggering a vote to remove the president from office. Bannon recently told people he’s not sure if Trump would survive such a vote.
