Bannon Will Be a No-Present for Home Intel Interview

Bannon Will Be a No-Present for Home Intel Interview

The "interview with Stephen Bannon has been postponed at the Committee's initiative until next week", Mike Conway, Texas Republican and panel member, said in a statement.

If Bannon refuses to appear before the House committee, its members could vote to hold him in contempt.

The White House and the president's legal team have not responded to requests for comment.

Rooney recalled that Bannon, during his appearance in the House last month, suggested that executive privilege might cover his time on the transition before Trump formally took office.

Two sources close to Bannon tell ABC News that the committee has still not determined the proper scope of questioning with the White House, and that the White House has said its position "has not changed on declining to authorize Bannon to answer questions" about his time working for Trump, according to one of the sources.

MLK speech used in truck ad railed against consumerism and ads
Martin Luther King Jr . certainly had a dream, and it's safe to say that it didn't have anything to do with selling pickup trucks. The ad shows people doing community service projects and urges people to be "great" by serving the greater good.


Some members of the committee expressed frustration at Bannon's unwillingness to testify.

The Democratic document aims to counter the Republican document, which accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department of abusing their authority in monitoring a onetime Trump campaign associate. On Monday, Schiff plans to try to win public release of a Democratic answer to a Republican memo released Friday that attempted to undermine one aspect of the investigation.

Rep. Adam Schiff says a Twitter attack from President Donald Trump amounts to "false smears".

Conway's office said the committee itself - which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election - had made a decision to delay the interview with Bannon.

Mueller and Congressional investigators are probing Russia's interference in the 2016 election and whether Trump campaign aides worked with Russian officials to support those efforts.

Trump has said the GOP memo "vindicates" him. This is the third time the committee has had to delay Bannon's testimony after his initial appearance last month.

President Donald Trump is lashing out at the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, saying he "must be stopped". Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. According to the four-page document, the FBI had abused its power in its investigation of the presidential campaign and applied for a wiretap with insufficient context for surveillance.

The battle of classified memos has further deepened the partisan divide on the House committee investigating Russian election meddling and possible connections between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign.
