Bannon Given More Time to Sort Out with White House

During his testimony, frustrated members of the House Intelligence Committee formally served Bannon with a subpoena after it became apparent that he was not giving specific answers to questions.

He added if Bannon was refusing to answer certain questions, then it's reasonable for his lawyer to have coordinated with the White House on the "scope" of executive privilege. "Mr. Mueller is likely to allow Mr. Bannon to forgo the grand jury appearance if he agrees to instead be questioned by investigators in the less formal setting of the special counsel's offices in Washington, according to the person, who would not be named discussing the case".

The White House said Thursday that President Donald Trump supported congressional Republicans' continuing resolution temporarily funding the federal government for 30 days.

Bannon clammed up about the presidential transition, his seven months in the White House and his conversations with Trump after he was sacked in August - frustrating Democrats and Republicans.

"If the White House is permitted to maintain that kind of a gag rule on the witness, no congressional investigation would ever be effective", Schiff said. "Russian collusion is a farce", he said.

Speaking with author Michael Wolff, Bannon criticized the handling of Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting in Trump Tower in the summer of 2016.

He spearheaded Trump to victory after taking over as his campaign's chief executive. Since the meeting took place in July and Bannon wasn't brought onto the campaign until mid-August, "Bannon doesn't really advance the story either", Kovalik noted.

At the very least, this latest bit of news is a sign that, surely to the dismay of the president, the Russian Federation investigation is far from winding down.

During his interview, he said the meeting was "unpatriotic, ' but said the 'treasonous" comment quoted in the book was an exaggerated statement, ABC News reported.

Dershowitz, a Harvard Law School professor emeritus, said he believes President Trump will eventually appear with his lawyers for an interview as well.

Mr Trump's campaign and transition teams have been accused of colluding with Russian agents to influence the United States election in the Republican candidate's favour.

In addition, House investigators will undoubtedly ask Bannon why he pushed the Trump campaign to hire the data mining and analysis firm Cambridge Analytica in June 2016.

He admitted to talking to former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, and Mark Corallo, the former spokesman for Trump's legal team who left his post.
