President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon faced angry lawmakers from both parties during a contentious interview that stretched more than 10 hours yesterday, as he was hit with subpoenas on multiple fronts and was accused by a top Democrat of agreeing to a White House “gag order.”
Bannon confirmed to the House Intelligence Committee that he was issued a subpoena from special counseling Robert Mueller to testify before a grand jury, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. He was also slapped with a new subpoena on Tuesday from the committee itself. Rep. Adam Schiff, the committee’s top Democrat, said after the hearing that Bannon was instructed by the White House in advance of the hearing not to respond to certain topics.
