    Washington Week President Trump Breaks With Steve Bannon Over Tell-All Book, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch's Retires President Donald Trump is threatening to sue his former chief strategist Steve Bannon after he slammed the president and his family in a soon-to-be-published book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." In a series of on-the-record interviews, Bannon questions Mr. Trump's fitness for office and calls Donald Jr.'s Trump Tower meeting with a Russian attorney during the campaign "treasonous." He also predicts that special counsel Robert Muellers subpoena of documents relating to Kushner family dealings with Deutsche Bank will lead to charges of money-laundering. And after serving for 42 years, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch announced Tuesday that he wouldn't seek re-election. His retirement clears the way for Mitt Romney, a harsh Trump critic, to return to the national stage by running for his seat. And two Democratic Senators were sworn in this week -- Tina Smith of Minnesota and Doug Jones of Alabama.
