The controversy surrounding President-elect Donald Trump's top advisor Steve Bannon is merely a "witch hunt," conservative writer David Horowitz told Newsmax Tv.
The claims Bannon is an anti-Semite are rubbish, Horowitz told the "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Wednesday.
"I tell you, what we are witnessing here is the biggest witch hunt in American history -- this witch hunt of Steve Bannon and anybody really who supports Trump," Horowitz told Malzberg.
"The New York Times uses my quote, my headline against Bannon. They couldn't find a single thing he said that was anti-Semitic," Horowitz said, according to Newsmax.
"This Bannon thing is completely invented, totally out of whole cloth," Horowitz continued. "It's just a bunch of sore losers who want to tar and feather, stigmatize the Trump administration and will fight it every step of the way -- never look at its actual programs or what it's actually doing as in this case, supporting Israel and the Jews."
