Bannon’s Made Millions in Shaping Right-Wing Thought

THE NEW YORK TIMES: The personal wealth and holdings of President Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, were detailed for the first time on Friday in a filing that showed a large chunk of his income coming from right-leaning political news, film and consulting companies.

The filing was included in a huge release of financial disclosures made late Friday evening by the White House, which is obligated to make public the financial assets and income of scores of officials now serving in the Trump administration.

A conservative media impresario and producer of documentary films before joining the Trump campaign, Mr. Bannon has assets worth $11.8 million to $53.8 million, his filing showed. » |Matthew Goldstein, Steve Eder, Kate Kelly, Alexandra Stevenson and Ben Protessmarch | Friday, March 31, 2017
