To talk about the charges and Bannon’s career, I called Joshua Green, a national correspondent at Bloomberg Businessweek, a CNN political analyst, and the author of “Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Nationalist Uprising.” During our conversation, which has been edited for length and clarity, we discussed the extent to which Bannon’s populism is sincere, how his tempestuous relationship with Trump might affect the possibility of a pardon, and whether Bannon might have any role in the future of Republican politics.

The post office arrested Steve Bannon. Yes, the post office can arrest people.
