Bannon has been told to give evidence in an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.
Donald Trump’s former key advisor Steve Bannon has been ordered to testify in a probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election, it’s been reported.
The New York Times said Bannon’s subpoenaing was the first time Special Counsel Robert Mueller had used such a move against a former member of Trump’s inner circle.
A spokesman for the special counsel declined to comment on NYT’s report.
Bannon, who recently had a public falling out with Trump over comments he made to an author of a controversial book, was meeting on Tuesday with the US House of Representatives' intelligence committee as part of its own Russia investigation.
