Steve Bannon to Testify in Congress on Russia Probe, Popularity Tanks

Hope Hicks, the White House communications director, and Corey Lewandowski, Trump's first campaign manager, are also expected to testify to the House committee in the near future, according to the source.

"You'll see that a lot with me", Trump said about his fiery tweets and nuclear missile threats. The closed-door testimony will focus on Bannon's time at the Trump campaign.

Mr. Bannon's departure, which was forced by a onetime financial patron, Rebekah Mercer, comes as Mr. Bannon remained unable to quell the furor over remarks attributed to him in a new book in which he questions President Trump's mental fitness and disparages his elder son, Donald Trump Jr.

Burck, who is a former special counsel and deputy counsel to George W Bush, is also representing Bannon exclusively in the House of Representatives intelligence committee interview relating to his time as campaign chairman for Trump.

President Donald Trump steps off Marine One on the South Lawn as he arrives at the White House in Washington, Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018, after traveling from Camp David, Md. Burck's remit will be limited to just that forum and does not encompass special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russian Federation probe, according to the NBC source. As if we didn't already know that greed trumped security.

The special counsel's team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Trump, but no details have been worked out.

In a separate tweet Wednesday morning, Trump accused Democratic Sen.

A day earlier, Feinstein, who faces a primary challenge in her re-election this year, released the transcript of the Senate Judiciary Committee's closed-door August interview with an official from the political opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which commissioned the dossier.

The Journal reported that Cohen, who was the Trump Organization's top attorney for about a decade, arranged for the payment to Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, in October 2016 after a negotiation between her lawyer and Cohen on a nondisclosure agreement.
