This was one of the best moments from the 60 Minutes interview with Steve Bannon. Charlie Rose got a little snippy over the Russia investigation and Bannon fired back, hard.

Bannon: The Russia Investigation Is ‘A Waste Of Time’ [VIDEO]
The investigation into possible collusion between the Russian government and Trump campaign is “a waste of time” and “a farce,” former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said in an interview that aired on “60 Minutes” Sunday night.
“There’s nothing to the Russia investigation. It’s a waste of time,” Bannon told Charlie Rose during the interview, his first since being fired from the White House last month…
“What do you believe? You know what the national security institution believes. What do you believe?” Rose asked Bannon.
“I was there, it’s a total and complete farce. Russian collusion is a farce,” Bannon asserted.
Rose responded by reframing the question. He asked Bannon if he believes that the Russians tried to influence the election.
“If you consider maybe something they did that at the DNC,” Bannon began.
“Maybe something they did?” Rose interjected, noting that the CIA and FBI believe that the Russian government was behind the hack of the DNC.
The interview grew tense, with Bannon telling Rose that he has seen intelligence reports that show that “it’s far from conclusive that the Russians had any impact on this election.”
