On Trump's desk: Democratic memo on Russian Federation probe

On Trump's desk: Democratic memo on Russian Federation probe

Nevertheless, senior Republican committee member Mike Conaway told reporters on Monday that he expected Bannon to comply with the subpoena. Testifying before the Special Counsel does not obviate Mr. Bannon's obligations under the subpoena issued by the Committee.

Trump last week declassified a document written by the committee's Republican majority that criticized methods the Federal Bureau of Investigation used to obtain a surveillance warrant on a onetime Trump campaign associate.

The confirmation of Bannon's meeting with Mueller comes as Bannon's closed-door interview set for Tuesday with the House intelligence committee was postponed.

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon listens at right as President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting on cyber security in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017. The committee wants to interview him as part of its investigation into Russian Federation election meddling and any coordination with Trump associates.

A source familiar with the situation said Bannon was expected to appear before Special Counsel Robert Mueller next week and would answer all of Mueller's questions.

Bannon, in a January 16 appearance before the panel, refused to answer questions about his time in the Trump administration and during the transition because the White House may want claim executive privilege.

The White House says it has a classified memo prepared by Democrats on the House intelligence committee in the panel's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump last week declassified a document written by the committee's Republican majority that criticized methods the Federal Bureau of Investigation used to obtain a surveillance warrant on a onetime Trump campaign associate. According to one of the sources speaking with Reuters, Bannon would answer Mueller's questions when he appears to testify before him.

Schiff said he would compare any deletions the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department might request with any White House edits to try to identify any attempts to withhold information for political purposes.

The committee voted unanimously Monday to release the memo. It now goes to President Donald Trump for a five-day review, and he will decide whether to allow its release - as he did with the Republican document last week.

Democrats on the panel wrote the memo in an effort to counter some of the arguments and evidence put forward by Republicans in a document of their own, declassified by Trump last week.

She said the Trump administration "will follow the same process and procedure" it did with the Republican document, meaning Trump has five days to decide whether to allow the Democratic memo's publication.

Democrats could seek a vote on publicly releasing their rebuttal memo when the GOP-led House Intelligence Committee meets late Monday afternoon.

President Trump accused Rep. Adam Schiff without evidence of illegally leaking "confidential information".

The Republican memo released last Friday alleges misconduct by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department in obtaining a warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to monitor former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page.
