House panel gives Bannon another week to comply with subpoena

House panel gives Bannon another week to comply with subpoena

"But again, I expect him to be here to answer the questions and go from there".

Monday evening, Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, the Republican leading the panel's Russian Federation probe, told reporters he expected Bannon to appear.

Bannon was present in the White House during periods Mueller may be investigating for a possible obstruction of justice charge, and he also shopped opposition research showing Trump's links to the mafia before joining his Republican presidential campaign in 2016.

Schiff said Bannon's attorney informed the panel that the White House would not let him testify beyond 14 pre-approved yes-or-no questions.

"It will therefore be necessary for our Committee to enforce the subpoena on Bannon, and now move to compel Lewandowski's testimony, among other outstanding steps needed to advance the investigation", Schiff said.

Bannon's lawyer has been negotiating with the committee and the White House about the interview's terms.

Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the Committee, said in a statement on Wednesday that Lewandowski told the Committee that he was refusing to appear before them.

Bannon last month spent 10 hours before the committee, but largely refused to answer questions about the weeks he spent helping Trump organize his administration before Trump took office in January 2017, and then about the time he served as the president's chief strategist until he was ousted in August.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., strides to a GOP conference joined at right by Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., also a member of the Intelligence Committee, at the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018. The House Intelligence Committee requested Bannon to testify as part of its investigation into an alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Executive privilege is a concept that originated with former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and argues that the president must be able to protect internal discussions in order to ensure that he or she will be able to receive honest advice from staff members.

One of the people says Bannon plans to tell Mueller "everything" he knows.

Gerhardt added that the degree to which the White House can exert control over his testimony before investigators depends on Bannon and his team. Conaway said. "There are questions that need to be answered".

"Executive privilege relates to material generated for or on behalf of the President, not anyone else working in the White House". "It has as much control as Bannon and his lawyer allow them".
