The ex-wife of Steve Bannon claims he made anti-Semitic comments when the couple fought over which private school to send their daughters to nearly a decade ago, NBC News reported.
The allegations were made in a sworn declaration by the ex-wife in a 2007 court filing. They were brought to light amid scrutiny over Bannon’s appointment as Donald Trump’s campaign CEO.
Three separate anti-Semitic remarks were allegedly made by Bannon while the couple toured Westland School, Willows Community School and The Archer School for Girls.
NBC News reached out to Bannon's personal spokeswoman for comment, but was unable to reach her.
The revelation followed news of a police report obtained by Politico late Thursday and confirmed by NBC News, in which the ex-wife claimed Bannon attacked her 20 years ago. Bannon was charged with three misdemeanor domestic violence-related charges and pleaded not guilty. The charges were dismissed six months later after prosecutors said they could not find his wife.
