Steve Bannon subpoenaed in Russian investigation, Fox News reports

Steve Bannon former adviser to President Donald Trump arrives at a House Intelligence Committee closed-door meeting on Jan. 16 2018 Trump did 'exceedingly well' on a cognitive test, top White House doctor says

In an interview with WABC radio host Rita Cosby, Lewandowski firmly denied any wrongdoing and said he would testify either Wednesday or Thursday.

Former Trump campaign manager and ex-White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was served immediate subpoenas during his interview with the House Intelligence Committee to share information about his time during the transition and at the White House.

Bannon's decision to avoid answering questions on the grounds of potentially infringing on executive privilege evoked memories of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' response to congressional questions a year ago. "The reason we did it is plain and simple, because the President asked me to do it".

'If the White House is permitted to maintain that kind of a gag rule on a witness, no Congressional investigation could ever be effective, ' Schiff pointed out.

Bannon later said he was not aiming his barb at Donald Trump Jr., who arranged the meeting because he expected the Russians to provide damaging material on Hillary Clinton. A source close to Bannon subsequently provided a statement saying Bannon expressed regret over the timing of his response to the book and that he thinks Trump Jr.is a "patriot". We're going to continue to be cooperative.

Axios confirmed on Wednesday that Bannon ― who reportedly received a subpoena last week to testify in the special counsel's investigation ― "intends to fully cooperate with Mueller".

One Star Holding Up Sanchez's Move To Man Utd
But if you are losing Sanchez, you need players that will hit the ground running. "At this moment low, but life is dynamic". The proposed deal involves Mhkitaryan going to Arsenal along with £25 million in exchange for Sanchez.

A lawyer who represented Bannon in an appearance before the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee on Tuesday could not be immediately reached.

Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, a Republican from Tulare, was forced to step back from the Russian Federation case during a controversy past year over how he handled classified information. The White House doctor would like to see Trump lose 10-15 pounds.

This comes just weeks after Mr Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort sued Mr Mueller, alleging that his office's wide-ranging investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation was exceeded its legal authority and needed to be reined-in.

Bannon has continued to avow his support for Trump. "It got heated. He was showing his loyalty to Trump". "Which just happened to be a head of one of the Russian Investment Banks, so we'd like to know whether Steve Bannon was involved in establishing any kind of a back channel of with the Russians". Sessions had also refused to answer certain questions related to the Trump-Russia investigation by citing possible executive privilege, according to Politico.

Lewandowski led Trump's campaign for almost a year before being fired before the general election.
