Later in the interview Miller called Bannon's involvement in the book "a betrayal to the president", and said the extent of Bannon's role in the Trump White House has been "greatly exaggerated". Tapper said that Miller was dodging his questions and performing for "an audience of one" - Trump.
At the end of an extremely tense and heated interview with White House senior policy advisor Stephen Miller, CNN anchor Jake Tapper seemingly had enough and chose to end the segment. 'And I also will say that the author is a garbage author of a garbage book'.
Bannon's statement continued: "Everything I have to say about the ridiculous nature of the Russian "collusion" investigation I said on my 60 Minutes interview".
Miller, in turn, scolded Tapper for making "condescending" and "snide" remarks and bashed CNN for airing "24 hours of negative, anti-Trump, hysterical coverage".
"The President's tweets absolutely reaffirm the plainspoken truth: A self-made billionaire revolutionized reality TV and tapped into something magical that's happening in the hearts of this country", Miller said.
(Miller, who was working for the campaign at the time, said he did not know anything about that meeting).
Despite having "no knowledge" of the meeting, Miller said he was certain all of the allegations in Wolff's book are "a pure work of fiction" and "nothing but a pile of trash through and through".
Wolff told NBC News' "Meet the Press" that he did not violate off-the-record agreements with the Trump aides.
In his book, Wolff relied heavily on on-the-record interviews with Bannon, who was critical of other White House aides and Trump's children. Many in the president's circle had been urging Trump for weeks to publicly distance himself from Bannon and used the fallout from the book to persuade the president to server ties with him. Tapper responded that that "wasn't true", and he had a lot of questions about immigration, and accused Miller of "filibustering".
"It's tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive and the whole White House staff is deeply disappointed in his comments", Miller said on Sunday. 'Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!'
Miller also argued that the president's Saturday tweets, in which he boasted about his "mental stability" and IQ, were helpful in arguing the point that he had the fortitude to do the job.
"Well, and I'm getting to the issue of your fitness", Mr. Miller shot back.
White House officials said their records showed that Mr. Wolff had last talked to the president in February, but Mr. Wolff said he had talked to the president several times after that.
