Bannon subpoenaed in Mueller's Russian Federation inquiry

Committee aides were not immediately available to comment.

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

The attorney was told by the White House counsel's office, according to the AP, that Bannon should not discuss any work he did during Trump's transition or while he worked in the West Wing.

The decision comes after Bannon was subpoenaed last week by Mueller. This is in contrast to Dearborn, who answered all the committee's questions. "It's not Mr. Bannon's right to waive it".

Democrats on the House Intelligence panel are concerned that other witnesses appearing this week will also claim executive privilege and decline to speak about the transition or their time in the White House.

Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly told Fox News on Wednesday the White House did not tell Bannon to invoke executive privilege in closed testimony before Congress.

"Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s--, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately", Bannon said. Friction ensued over executive privilege and a subpoena was issued to compel testimony.

He said the committee expects to have Bannon return for more questioning.

Mrs. Sanders said the was cooperating with the Russian Federation probes, but told reporters, "As with all congressional inquiries touching upon the, Congress must consult with the prior to obtaining confidential material".

Lawmakers questioned Bannon as part of their investigation into Russian election inference and sought answers about Trump's thinking when he fired FBI Director James Comey.

But the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Mueller offered Bannon the option of being interviewed instead and Bannon accepted.

Trump Jr. later said she had nothing to give to them on Clinton and there was no follow-up, and Veselnitskaya has said she requested the meeting to lobby against the Magnitsky Act. "This is part of a judicially recognized process that goes back decades". He left the White House and has certainly never returned to the White House. "This time it was something that was relayed via phone, and again, was following standard procedure for an instance like this and something that will likely happen again on any other number of occasions, not just within this administration, but future administrations".

"Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was", the president added.

Steve Bannon will cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe, according to reports that surfaced on Wednesday morning.

It is unlikely the committee will face the same White House objections with Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who is also being interviewed Wednesday.

Most of the 10.5-hour interview focused on periods after the campaign, the sources said. For that, found himself slapped with his second subpoena - this one by the committee.

"We're going to get answers from Mr. Bannon", said Rep. Mike Conaway of Texas, the committee's top Republican.

"You'd have to ask the White House [why]", he said.

The news confirms reports on Tuesday which said Bannon, citing executive privilege, refused to answer questions related to those topics.

"There was a great deal of consternation on both sides of the aisle", Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) said, according to CNN. "So, yeah, people are upset".
