For Russia probe, US Congress will interview Bannon next week

  • Print


Reuters, Washington :
President Donald Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon will be interviewed next week by a U.S. House of Representatives committee investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday.
The interview on Tuesday will focus on Mr Bannon's time on the campaign, not the transition or his time in the White House, the source said.
An aide to Republican Representative Devin Nunes, the committee's chairman, declined comment. The committee's practice is not to comment on specific witnesses or the schedule for testimony at non-public hearings.
Separately, Representative Adam Schiff, the panel's top Democrat, told reporters on Thursday he would like "dozens" more witnesses, including Mr Bannon, to appear before the committee, making clear he does not view its investigation of Russia and the election as near its end.
