Facing Two Subpoenas, Bannon Tries to Get Back on Trump's Good Side

Trump has ended an Obama-era program providing those protections and given Congress until March to restore them, and he and Republicans want any immigration deal to include money for the president's promised wall along the Mexican border and other security measures.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, at the time unaware that Bannon had retained Burck the same day, arrived at his house in Washington, D.C., to serve him with the subpoena, reported. Grand jury investigations allow for witnesses to be compelled via subpoena to provide sworn evidence to help the grand jury gather evidence in the form of testimony. A representative for the Justice Department declined to comment.

Meanwhile, special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed Bannon for an interview, but not before a grand jury. After he voluntarily appeared before the House panel for 10 hours, the committee slapped him with a subpoena because he reportedly began to shut down in certain areas of questioning.

'He quickly informed, through his counsel, the committee he was not going to answer questions that pertained to meetings, conversations, events, etc., that took place wither during the transition or while he was part of the administration, ' said Rep. Adam Schiff, the committee's top Democrat.

Bannon enraged both Democrats and Republicans when he refused to answer questions from the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday.

The defining case was US v. Nixon in 1974, when President Richard Nixon refused to give crucial White House recordings to the special prosecutor investigating the Watergate scandal.

However, executive privilege does not apply to a presidential campaign, but what happens in the Oval Office, he said. In the Russian interference matter under investigation by Mueller and three congressional committees, whether Bannon and other former and current Trump employees can make such claims is not a settled issue, according to Peter M. Shane, a law professor at Ohio State University who has written extensively on separation of powers issues within the Constitution.

The White House replied that Bannon should say nothing.

He resigned from the right-wing news site last week, after returning to its helm in August after his eight-month White House stint.

But Bannon's relationship with Trump went south after the publication of a bombshell book this month in which the ex-strategist was quoted as having questioned Trump's mental fitness and blasted Donald Trump Jr.as "unpatriotic" and "treasonous". The network said Bannon is expected to talk openly to Mueller's team.
