Will George Stephanopopulos ask Steve Bannon about Trump and money laundering?

Steve Bannon is beginning his comeback tour having already turned up on Fareed Zakaria's show to flog his immigrant scapegoat strategy (with Zakaria calling it "clever.") Tomorrow he's going to be on Stephanopoulos. It would be very interesting if George asked him about what he told Michael Wolff, but I'll be pleasantly surprised if he does:

You realize where this is going. This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f***ing Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr., and Jared Kushner. . . . It's as plain as a hair on your face. It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit. The Kushner shit is greasy. They're going to go right through that. They're going to roll those . . . guys up and say play me or trade me.

Considering that Manafort is now in jail for witness tampering, I would think this would be newly relevant.
