From a Capitol Hill Basement, Steve Bannon Stokes a Republican Party Meltdown

From a New York Times story by Annie Karni headlined “From a Capitol Hill Basement, Bannon Stokes the Republican Party Meltdown”:

On Wednesday morning, two Republicans who hours earlier had toppled Kevin McCarthy as speaker of the House made a well-worn trek to a 19th-century brick townhouse a few blocks away from the Capitol and entered the cluttered sanctuary of Stephen K. Bannon’s recording studio.

Representatives Matt Gaetz of Florida, the instigator of the rebellion, and Nancy Mace of South Carolina, one of seven other Republican defectors, huddled with Mr. Bannon for a morning meeting ahead of a joint appearance on his “War Room” podcast.
