The House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday gave former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon an extra week to appear and face questions from lawmakers, after Bannon failed to show up for his second meeting at the committee this morning at 10 a.m.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., told reporters Tuesday that the deadline for Bannon to comply with a subpoena had been extended a week, which was the third extension offered to Bannon. Bannon has already testified before the committee once, and he could face a subpoena if he fails to show up by next week.
Gowdy’s office confirmed the delay to the Washington Examiner as the House Intelligence Committee and the White House work to negotiate the scope of the questions Bannon will answer.
Last month, during his first closed-door appearance before the panel, Bannon refused to answer questions about anything following his time with the Trump campaign.
Bannon is also reportedly expected to interview with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators next week, and he will likely be questioned about President Trump’s firings of former FBI Director James Comey and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
