Former White House counselor Steve Bannon predicted this year will be ‘the most vitriolic year in American politics since the Civil War’ because of the investigations into President Donald Trump.

Bannon cited the upcoming release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, the investigation of Trump’s businesses from the Southern District of New York attorney’s office, and House Democrats’ plans for probes of the administration as the reason for the forthcoming chaos.

‘I think that 2019 is going to be the most vitriolic year in American politics since before the Civil War,’ Bannon told CBS News in an interview that aired Sunday. ‘And I include Vietnam in that. I think we’re in, I think we’re in for a very nasty 2019.’

Bannon, who served as chief strategist for the Trump White House before then-chief of staff John Kelly forced him out, predicted a tough few months ahead for the president with the pressure of the investigations increasing on him and his administration.

‘I think the next 90 days to four months is going to be a real meat grinder,’ he said. ‘I mean, the pressure on the president is coming from many different angles.’

President Trump indicated the investigations were on his mind Sunday morning when tweeted on the matter – one of his favorite subject to rage about on social media.

‘The only Collusion with the Russians was with Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee…And, where’s the Server that the DNC refused to give to the FBI? Where are the new Texts between Agent Lisa Page and her Agent lover, Peter S? We want them now!,’ he wrote.

It’s unclear what the president meant by new texts between FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. The two agents – who were working on the Russia investigation and having an affair – had texted of their hopes Trump would lose the election.

Trump previously has accused the bureau – without proof – of deleting messages between the two.

However, the Justice Department’s inspector general, in a report released Thursday, found no evidence the FBI intentionally destroyed text messages between Strzok and Page.

The IG could not recover any texts from the phones assigned to the two agents because, by the time investigators requested the devices, they had been reset for others to use them.
