[Ed. – Bannon has to be much happier out where you can lob forth stuff like this and not hit any vital organs.  Who knows, he may be right — I’m not convinced the op-ed was written by a real official in the administration at all — but is it good leadership to voice such speculation when there’s no way of knowing?  The answer is no. For messaging purposes, don’t muck around expounding on the topic at length. It’s a dead end anyway. Concentrate on other things.]

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said Monday he does not believe the anonymous New York Times op-ed is the work of one individual, but was a collective work by up to a dozen officials.

“I don’t think there’s any one author,” he told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle.” “There are many voices in there … I think that’s a much broader conspiracy than people think. I think it’s probably six to a dozen people.”

Bannon called the piece “absolutely outrageous” and encouraged the Trump administration to figure out the people responsible for it.
