We just had this whole big thing about how Trump is supposedly insane, but Bannon clearly is insane and yet no one is questioning that as he is called in to testify before the hoax commission.
Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s office has subpoenaed former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon to appear before a grand jury, a move that indicates his broad investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 campaign is far from wrapping up.
The subpoena was issued last week, according to a person familiar with the situation, who said that Bannon expects to be able to persuade the special counsel’s office to accept a voluntary interview of Bannon by prosecutors in place of a grand jury appearance.
The news of Mueller’s action, which was first reported by the New York Times, came on the same day that the House Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena to Bannon for refusing to answer a range of questions from investigators during a combative closed-door interview, frustrating members of both parties who are probing the Trump campaign’s alleged Russia ties.
“Only Steve Bannon could unite this committee,” said Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.).
The twin developments intensify the pressure on the former Breitbart News executive after his public falling-out with President Trump, who reacted angrily to comments Bannon made in the new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
Bannon appears to want revenge. That is the underlying thing here.
I don’t think his testimony should be considered valid.
