Steve Bannon subpoenaed in Russian investigation, Fox News reports

President Donald Trump waves after speaking at the Conversations with the Women of America at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House complex in Washington Tuesday Jan. 16 2018

FORMER White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has reportedly been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon is expected to meet behind closed doors with the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday, a congressional source and two sources close to Bannon tell ABC News.

Ex-Donald Trump aide Steve Bannon has been summoned to testify before a grand jury in the US - Russia inquiry, the BBC quotes US media as reporting.

President Donald Trump publicly criticized Bannon for his comments, saying the former strategist had "lost his mind".

Icy conditions possible Friday as cold front replaces mild weather in Toronto
Environment Canada is predicting as much as 20 millimetres of rain to fall between now and Friday afternoon. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots could become "icy and slippery".

Mr Bannon was not present at the meeting, nor during the drafting of the President's misleading statement on this issue - both of which are reportedly of interest to Mr Mueller.

The meeting came after Donald Trump Jr. was told in an email that the Russian government had compromising information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to which he replied: "I love it". Bannon was soon ousted as the executive chairman of the hard-right website Breitbart News.

More recently, Bannon has said he was not referring to Trump Jr. but rather to Manafort.

Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election and Trump has denied there was any collusion between his campaign and Moscow. And Bannon was directly involved in a number of other major moments, including the decision-making around the firing of Michael Flynn, the president's first national security adviser, who was dismissed after he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about phone calls with the Russian ambassador during the presidential transition.

Don't Risk War with North Korea, Experts Warn
The WSJ released the transcript of the interview along with the disputed audio, in a bid to clarify the matter. The White House released a portion of the audio from the interview that it said showed Trump said "I'd".

After the book's release, Trump quickly disavowed "Sloppy Steve Bannon" and argued extensively there was no evidence of collusion between his presidential campaign and operatives tied to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Committee subpoenas him during the meeting to comply while in the hearing.

"Specifically what's the basis for his assertion that the president met with the participants in the Trump Tower meeting", Schiff said in an interview with ABC News' Pierre Thomas.

He and Trump's son-in-law have never seen eye to eye; their White House feuds were a poorly kept secret, and following his ouster, Bannon has given numerous interviews knocking Kushner, including one to my colleague Gabriel Sherman in which he questioned Kushner's maturity level.
