Riding an Untamed Horse: Priebus Opens Up on Serving Trump

Thursday 21:53 GMT

Mr. Priebus described a roller-coaster experience trying to impose discipline on one of the most undisciplined figures in American politics, a period that led to his unhappy departure last summer when Mr. Trump unceremoniously announced his resignation on Twitter just before Mr. Priebus disembarked Air Force One in the rain.

Bannon, House intelligence panel head for subpoena showdown

The House Intelligence Committee is preparing for a showdown with former White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon that members call a moment of truth for Congress if it wants to maintain any authority to scrutinize the Trump administration.

Panel lawmakers are urging leaders to issue a contempt citation for Bannon if he refuses to answer their questions during an interview expected Thursday — their second attempt to compel Bannon’s testimony in recent weeks.

Bannon returns to House Intelligence Committee under subpoena

Friday 19:07 GMT

The House Intelligence Committee is at an impasse as it tries to extract testimony from former top White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who returned to Capitol Hill under subpoena Thursday morning to meet with House investigators probing Russian meddling in the 2016 election but continued to refuse to answer certain questions behind closed doors.

Bannon and the House Intelligence Committee have been in a weeks-long standoff over his refusal to discuss anything from the presidential transition period or his tenure advising President Trump in the White House.
