"Steve Bannon told lawmakers investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election that the White House instructed him not to answer questions related to his tenure as a top White House adviser, prompting a rare subpoena to compel testimony, multiple congressional sources tell NBC News.

The former Breitbart executive and now-spurned Trump confidante spent more than eight hours before the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday, the first of three high-profile witnesses expected before the panel this week....

We now have *at least* three men who are *extremely* close to Trump who've asserted fake privileges to avoid answering questions or have improperly asserted recognized privileges (by way of being the wrong person to assert them): Steve Bannon, Donald Trump Jr., and Jeff Sessions.

:rolleyes:

It appears that Bannon was taking instructions from the WH when he refused to answer any questions during his appearance before the House investigation Committee yesterday.  I guess there really aren't any checks and balances for this Trump government.

Steve Bannon will reportedly speak freely to special counsel Robert Mueller because the executive privilege that prevented him from speaking to House Intel does not apply to a Mueller grand jury:

From the WP ...

Sessions interviewed by special counsel probing possible Trump campaign ties with Russia
Interview last week with attorney general could shed new light on firing of FBI Director James B. Comey.
By Ellen Nakashima, Devlin Barrett  •   Read more »
 

During his confirmation hearing in early 2017, Sessions was asked what he would do if he learned there had been contacts between Russians and the Trump campaign, and he answered: “I did not have communications with the Russians.’’

After The Washington Post reported that he met at least twice with Kislyak in 2016, Sessions announced he was recusing himself from investigations involving the election, based on the advice of Justice Department ethics lawyers.

He has since maintained that he misunderstood the scope of the question at his confirmation hearing, and that his meetings with Kislyak were fleeting or strictly in his capacity as a U.S. senator. In announcing his recusal, Sessions said: “I never had meetings with Russian operatives or Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign.”

That assertion is contradicted by the accounts Kislyak provided to his superiors in Moscow, according to current and former U.S. officials.

 

Kislyak reported to his bosses that he discussed campaign-related matters, including policy issues important to Moscow, with Sessions during the 2016 presidential race.

At the time, Sessions was a top foreign policy adviser to Trump the candidate. Kislyak’s account of the conversations were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies, who regularly monitor the communications of senior Russian officials in the U.S. and Russia.

One U.S. official said that Sessions has provided “misleading” statements that are “contradicted by other evidence.” A former official said that the intelligence indicates that Sessions and Kislyak had “substantive” discussions on matters including Trump’s positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration.

This shows you that deep down Fox knows that Trump is lying and he is guilty as hell but they are willing to cover it all up.  From the WP ...

Isn't there some law about not taking advantage of the feeble minded?

Gee I wonder why Trump is being so kind to the Russians and wanting to shut down the investigation into their tampering with the election?  Will he even testify or will he have Mueller fired?  If he testifies and tells the truth he will be ****ed and if he lies, well ...
