Right-wing conspiracy theorist and convicted contempter of Congress Steve Bannon suggested without evidence on Real America's Voice on Saturday morning that the Central Intelligence Agency is responsible for the death of Kremlin propagandist Darya Dugina, the daughter of one of Russian President Vladimir Putin's top allies, who was killed in a car bomb in Moscow earlier this week.

Dugina was a key adviser to Putin as he finalized his plans to invade Ukraine. Russia has blamed Kyiv for the attack and has opened an investigation into the alleged assassination.

After mispronouncing her name, Bannon also wondered if the CIA, and perhaps the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is plotting to take out Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"The CIA is out of control. I got right now the question: did the CIA have anything to do with Ukrainian intelligence just trying to assassinate Dugin [sic], Putin's geostrategist? Okay? Are we supposed to be involved in that? I want the CIA to come forward and say they have nothing to do with it," Bannon said.

"Zelenskyy better understand they're coming for him. He ought to read The Best and the Brightest about President Diem. When the CIA is finished with you, they toss you out like a piece of trash. So all your running around right now, that assassination attempt shows you the administrative state's outta control. We have no idea what the CIA is doing, no idea what the FBI is doing."

Bannon again failed to provide any proof to back up his claim.
