Larry Solov, Co-CEO of Breitbart, had sent the committee an official letter (see below) attempting to explain Bannon’s current relationship with Breitbart. The letter, however, fell short of the Committee’s needs, maybe laughably short.
The committee discussed a request letter sent to them by Breitbart’s Larry Solov late Thursday that was said to show White House chief strategist Steve Bannon had severed ties from Breitbart as of November. Beyond the letter (embedded below), which presented a “Word.doc” masthead of Breitbart, a committee member pointed out that beyond “us trusting Larry” there was no other evidence that Bannon had in fact completely cut himself off from the site he previously ran.
The fact that Stephen Bannon is not on Breitbart’s masthead means nothing as to whether he is still connected to the publication.
In the meantime, Breitbart must answer the questions presented to them sufficiently or face a permanent denial of Capital Hill press credentials
