Despite being subpoenaed to testify in front of Congress, Steve Bannon, former adviser to President Trump, refused to answer any questions.
Bannon’s refusal to speak has infuriated members of the House Intelligence Committee, who vow they will get answers from him.
One has to wonder, isn’t the Mueller led Russia “investigation” more than enough? Doesn’t Congress have better things to do?
According to Politico:
“Lawmakers investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election vowed Tuesday to force answers from Steve Bannon after the former senior strategist to President Donald Trump stonewalled their inquiries — even after the committee issued a subpoena with bipartisan support.
Lawmakers in both parties attributed Bannon’s silence to the White House, which they said told him to refuse to discuss his time in the West Wing or on Trump’s transition team. Bannon’s refusal to speak clearly angered lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee, who vowed to make him speak.
“We’re going to get answers from Mr. Bannon,” said Rep. Mike Conaway of Texas, the top Republican on the committee’s probe of Russian interference in the presidential election.
Tensions flared early in the proceedings after Bannon informed the committee that he was refusing to answer any questions about his time in the White House or on the post-election transition, infuriating Democrats and Republicans on the panel, who subpoenaed him on the spot, according to a source familiar with the interview.”
