Bannon testifies in House Russia probe after relationship with Trump unravels

Shhhh! Trump is thinking

President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Tuesday he is looking forward to taking questions from the House Intelligence Committee later this week, as he wants to provide them with information proving there was no collusion between the president's campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election. He continued to speak with Trump and tried to promote the president's agenda.

Though the Trump Tower meeting took place before Bannon joined the Trump campaign, Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House panel, told CNN last week that he plans to question Bannon about "why this meeting at Trump Tower represented his treason and certainly unpatriotic at a minimum".

"Michael Wolff, that is the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me", Bannon replied.

He was reportedly subpoenaed by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Robert Mueller, who is leading an inquiry into alleged collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 election campaign.

Bannon's testimony, which he is delivering behind closed doors, has been hotly anticipated since this month's publication of "Fire and Fury", a book by Michael Wolff about Trump's first year in the White House.

On Thursday, Trump took to Twitter to claim that the decision to cancel the visit to the United Kingdom - one that had already reportedly been postponed after Trump retweeted a far-right British group - was in fact due to his dismay at the new American embassy in London.

She concluded the story by writing to Streep, "You can take my seat any time!" Ah, to be a fly on that wall. When she shouts in surprise, Seacrest asks what's wrong as she exclaims, "Oh my God , that's Meryl! ".

Trump blasted Bannon for his comments about his son and other family members, including daughter Ivanka, calling him "Sloppy Steve" on Twitter.

"I'm going to answer every question truthfully, honestly to the best of my ability and the best of my recollection", Lewandowski said.

Whatever one thinks of Bannon's politics, he is a voracious consumer of information and is very wired into Trump circles.

A spokesman for Mueller's office declined comment. Trump's son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner, and his campaign manager, Paul Manafort, also attended. He left Breitbart News last week because of fallout from the Wolff book.

The House Intelligence Committee is speeding toward a conclusion of its interviews in its Russian Federation investigation.

One such candidate, Arizona Republican Kelli Ward, who had been the recipient of Bannon's endorsement, immediately distanced herself from the fallen former Trump ally. Earlier in 2017, the Federal Bureau of Investigation briefed Hicks that Russian operatives had tried to reach her during the presidential transition, the Times reported, citing people familiar with events.
