Steve Bannon on Capitol Hill for House Intel hearing

Steve Bannon on Capitol Hill for House Intel hearing

Bannon allowed Wolff, who painted a picture of an erratic and poorly informed president, substantial access to the White House during Trump's first year.

Rep. Adam B. Schiff of California, the panel's top Democrat, told reporters that the White House's stance was "completely unsustainable". His mornings are typically reserved for staffers and lawmakers, who he sometimes calls immediately after they've appeared on cable news.

His attorney reportedly told the committee that he wouldn't answer questions about his time with the Trump administration after the 2016 election.

The experts also said it could be a signal to Mr. Bannon, who has tried to publicly patch up his falling-out with the president, that despite Mr. Trump's legal threats, Mr. Bannon must be completely forthcoming with investigators...

When asked earlier Tuesday if the White House instructed Bannon not to answer certain questions, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded, "As with all congressional inquiries touching upon the White House, Congress must consult with the White House prior to obtaining confidential material". "This is part of a judicially recognized process".

But Tuesday brought a rare spirit of bipartisanship, and members of both parties were displeased. "We are going to get the answers from Mr. Bannon".

The path to a deal seems even more complicated after last week's coarse Oval Office conversation, and Mr Trump has accused Mr Durbin of undermining the trust necessary to reach an agreement.

However, Bannon speculated that due to the make-up of Mueller's staff, the probe will ultimately focus on charging Trump with money laundering.

The Democrat added that Bannon also would not discuss how the White House responded to reports past year of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians and Trump officials - and whether there were any steps taken by the White House "to hinder" the Russia inquiry.

Beyond Robert Mueller's probe, the House Intelligence Committee is one of multiple congressional panels investigating Russian meddling and potential links to the Trump team.

Whatever route he chooses, Mr. Trump has the ability to install whatever equipment he wants in the White House.

Schiff said he expects Bannon to make another appearance before the committee. She said "others in the room were also using tough language".

But Bannon played a critical role in the campaign, the presidential transition and the White House - all during times now under scrutiny from congressional investigators looking for possible evidence of a connection between Trump's operations and Russian Federation.

"I'm not concerned at all because I have nothing to hide", Lewandowski said, according to excerpts of the interview provided by WABC.

His interview follows his spectacular fall from power after being quoted in a book that he sees the president's son and others as engaging in "treasonous" behavior for taking a meeting with the Russians during the 2016 campaign. Manafort and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and adviser, also attended.

Tuesday's interview came after Bannon resigned as executive chairman of Breitbart News following the release of Michael Wolff's tell-all book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House". He said he expected Bannon to return to the committee soon, without any restrictions demanded by the White House.

If you were, for whatever reason, excited about the "Most Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards Of The Year" that President Trump promised for January 8, then postponed until Wednesday, well, don't get your hopes too high.
