Mueller Subpoenas Bannon in Russia Investigation

Special Counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon last week in his quest to uncover the truth behind Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to a report from Michael Schmidt in The New York Times.

Mueller has interviewed various members of President Trump’s inner circle, including former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and the investigation has led to charges for former campaign manager Paul Manafort and former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

The Bannon testimony comes after a falling out between the president and his former chief strategist over Bannon’s comments to journalist Michael Wolff. In Wolff’s book, “Fire and Fury,” he quotes Bannon as saying that Donald Trump, Jr.’s June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer was “treasonous.”

Trump went nuclear on his former adviser, slamming the former Breitbart executive in a series of tweets and statements.

Bannon testified to the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday in a closed session.

UPDATE: Bannon reportedly refused to answer questions before the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday, and he is now facing a subpoena from the committee.
