Mueller Subpoenas Bannon To Testify Before A Grand Jury On Trump-Russia Probe





Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon to testify in front of a grand jury as part of the federal probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

The subpoena marks the first time Mueller has used a grand jury subpoena to get a top member of Trump’s inner circle to talk.

Bannon was hired as the Trump campaign chairman in August of 2016 and then served as the Trump White House’s top strategist for one year.



A source told the Times that it’s possible Mueller’s subpoena is a strategic move designed to convince Bannon to speak with Mueller’s team privately instead of testifying in front of a grand jury.
