Some Lawmakers Aren't Happy With Steve Bannon's Testimony

"Mueller will hear everything Bannon has to say", a strikingly similar source told The Daily Beast.

Bannon's refusal to answer the committee's questions Tuesday spurred lawmakers to issue and serve an immediate subpoena on Bannon to compel his appearance and testimony.

Steve Bannon's attorney relayed questions, in real time, to the White House during a House Intelligence Committee interview of the former Trump chief strategist.

"The scope of this assertion of privilege-if that's what it is-is breathtaking", Schiff said.

"There was a great deal of consternation on both sides of the aisle", Himes told Cooper.

"I'm glad to say that members of both parties pushed back hard against this unprecedented claim - what looks a lot like a gag order", said Himes.

Bannon, a champion of Trump's "America First" agenda, was sacked by the White House in August and returned to the right-wing news website Breitbart News.

It is unclear who Mr Burck was communicating with in the White House.

As a result, Love will head back to Palo Alto and should enter 2018 as one of the leading Heisman Trophy contenders. Earlier on Tuesday, Love's father, Chris, told the San Francisco Chronicle of his son's plans for next season.

According to Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), after the subpoena, Bannon's attorney contacted the White House, which he said "doubled down" on its demand that he refuse to answer the committee's questions.

Sanders said Wednesday that the White House is cooperating with the Russian Federation investigation and wasn't concerned that Bannon's testimony could incriminate members of Trump's team. Once redirected, the agents sent the order to Burck, who is also representing two other witnesses in the probe being led by special counsel Robert Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Shortly into that line of questioning, Bannon was cut off by his lawyer, according to the sources. That was the period he had prepared for the committee to ask him about, King added. According to CNN, even GOP lawmakers haven't ruled out that possibility.

Steve Bannon has refused to answer questions on his time as a Trump advisor after his lawyer phoned the White House during a House Intelligence Committee hearing.

"Although I may think that something might have gone on between (the Trump team) and Russian Federation, I don't think it was the deciding factor in the final vote", junior criminal justice major Mike Best said. "At what time does that attach - during the transition or during the actual swearing-in?"

But the pair had a bitter public falling out over comments Bannon made to author Michael Wolff for his recent book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Trump's former strategist Steve Bannon has been grilled by a congressional committee on alleged links between the president's election campaign and Russian Federation.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders insisted "no one" had discouraged Bannon from transparency. Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a similar case when he declined to answer some questions he had received from lawmakers in various ongoing Russian Federation probes.

"I can tell you that this White House is following the same practice that many White Houses before us have, that goes back decades", she said. "We have been fully cooperative with these ongoing investigations, and encourage the committees to work with us to find an appropriate accommodation in order to ensure Congress obtains information necessary to its legitimate interests".
