The Mercer Family, Steve Bannon, And Financing The GOP Revolution
Robert Mercer is the billionaire investor who has financed Steve Bannon's Brietbart News which has led the battle against the Republican establishment. Mercer was forced to step down from his position as CEO of an investment fund because of backlash from his politics. He was a big supporter of Ted Cruz, but he switched over to Trump after he won the GOP nomination. Ted Cruz is the only Senate Republican who is not on Bannon's attack list against the GOP establishment. There has been some speculation about Mercer's support for Bannon and Brietbart News. Apparently, Mercer has transferred his ownership of Brietbart News to his daughter who has also been active in supporting Bannon's war against the GOP establishment. The Mercer family along, with the Koch family, have been the most prominent billionaires using their money to determine the direction of Republican political policies.
