A public policy analyst is cheering on Steve Bannon, the now-former White House chief strategist, after he called out Republicans in Washington.
After being ousted from the White House, Bannon told "60 Minutes" that the Republican establishment is attempting to "nullify" last year's election in which Donald Trump surprised the nation with an upset victory over Hillary Clinton.
Pressed by interviewer Charlie Rose to name names, Bannon went on to do just that, calling out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
"They do not want Donald Trump's populist, nationalist agenda to be implemented. It's very obvious," Bannon went on to warn.
Bannon was "spot on" in claiming the GOP leaders are attempting to block Trump's agenda, says attorney Abe Hamilton, a public policy analyst for the American Family Association.
Citing one example, Hamilton points to the Republican Party claiming that it wanted to repeal ObamaCare, passing legislation that amounted to showboating and campaigning when it didn't count during the Obama administration.
"When you now have a legitimate opportunity," says Hamilton, "to actually come through on the promise to trash the behemoth that is ObamaCare, you come up lame."
That action, he says, proves that the "establishment" doesn't really want to repeal it, which proves Bannon's claim since Trump promised a repeal.
