Steve Bannon Subpoenaed in Russia Investigation

President Donald Trump poses for a portrait in the Oval Office in Washington after an interview with The Associated Press. Trump has proven himself an unconventional leader time and time again in his first year

Special counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon to appear before a grand jury as part of the Russia investigation.

Steve Bannon, who was most extreme strategist of Donald Trump, has been called to testify before grand jury of investigation of so-called Russian plot, which addresses possible collusion between circle of President of United States and Russia to interfere in Elections of 2016.

However the summons could be a negotiating tactic by Mr Mueller to persuade Mr Bannon to agree to be questioned by investigators in the less formal setting of the special counsel's offices in Washington, the paper's source added.

While bragging about his work with Trump, Murray's Bannon also talks about who he can potentially get into the White House in 2020.

He also speculated that then-candidate Trump was possibly involved in the meeting as well, and asserted that Jared Kushner was involved in some "greasy" business that could expose him to money laundering charges.

Bannon recently retained the same lawyer being used by former Trump chief of staff Reince Priebus and current White House general counsel Don McGahn. The book quotes Bannon as saying, among other things, that Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, was "treasonous" in taking a meeting with Russians purporting to have dirt on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign. I do have the belief that the writing Moses brought down from the mountain was indeed the truth; I only wish that the publications of today were as reliable as those of the past. In addition, The Atlantic reported that Bannon was among the senior officials Trump Jr. e-mailed in September 2016, informing them that WikiLeaks had made contact with him over Twitter.

"That investigation is running on its own timeline that is completely opaque to the public".

Bannon is reportedly subpoenaed to testify...

Despite also denying these comments, protests and criticisms aimed at Trump have come in all forms.

Trump's lawyers have served Bannon with a cease and desist letter claiming his statements in Fire and Fury constitute "defamation by libel and slander", and violate a non-disclosure agreement Bannon signed as a campaign employee. Instead, he's merely shifted the blame away from Trump Jr. and onto Manafort.

Mr Bannon and his representatives are yet to comment.

The White House doctor has declared that President Donald Trump is in good mental health.
