Bannons in front of the intel committee today, not televised unfortunately
Now he has been subpoenaed by Mueller...
Former Trump Campaign CEO Steve Bannon has received a subpoena from Robert Mueller, and it seems the ex-Breitbart chief will face questions from the special counsel investigating Russian election interference.
The New York Times reports that Bannon received his subpoena last week, meaning he is required to testify before the grand jury. This is the first time Mueller has invoked a subpoena for a member of President Donald Trump‘s team, and this development comes after the special investigation clamped down on former allies like Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, and Michael Flynn.
Earlier today, Bannon appeared before on Capitol Hill for a closed-door interview with the House Intel Committee about his time with the Trump campaign. There’s a solid possibility that Bannon was asked about his statements in Michael Wolff‘s book, particularly the part where he said the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-affiliated lawyer was “treasonous.”
Trump has not responded to this development yet, though he and the White House have thoroughly denounced Bannon in the last few weeks, and here’s his latest tweet on the Russia investigations:
Mueller subpoenaed him, because he totally stonewalled the House Intel committee. Trey Gowdy said he claimed Executive privilege for his time during the transition, during the campaign AND after he left the org.
