The same day that Steve Bannon testified to a House panel on Russian influences on the election, this news drops:
Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed Steve Bannon, the former chief strategist for President Trump.
According to the New York Times, Bannon was subpoenaed last week to testify before a grand jury as part of Mueller’s broad probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and Russia’s possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
Bannon was on Capitol Hill Tuesday testifying behind closed doors before the House Intelligence Committee, which is also investigating Russia’s meddling and possible collusion.
According to the New York Times, this is the first time Mueller has used a grand jury subpoena to get information from someone in Trump’s inner circle.
