Steve Bannon 'will not testify' over Russian Federation collusion

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon is expected to be a no-show before the House Intelligence Committee which is probing Russian interference in the 2016 election

Last time, Bannon declared he would not answer questions about his time in the White House.

"This is unacceptable, and the Committee remains united on this matter - the Committee's subpoena remains in effect and his interview has been rescheduled for next week".

The House Intelligence Committee confirmed Tuesday it was giving Bannon another week to comply with its subpoena.

Bannon was ordered to return to Capitol Hill Tuesday morning after a marathon meeting with the committee behind closed doors last month, where he refused to answer the committee's questions about his time working for Trump during the transition or in the White House.

It says Russian Federation and China are rapidly modernizing their nuclear capabilities. He noted that the U.S. owns the world's largest nuclear arsenal.

Some members of the committee expressed frustration at Bannon's unwillingness to testify.

The house panel wants Mr Bannon to testify as part of its investigation of allegations that Russian Federation sought to influence the 2016 presidential election in the United States, following up on his January 16 appearance that failed to satisfy some members of the committee.

On the same day as his House testimony, news broke that special counsel Robert Mueller had subpoenaed Mr. Bannon in its Russian Federation probe.

Asked how the committee would respond if Bannon did not show up on Tuesday, Conaway demurred on a possible contempt finding.

Her withdrawal brought relief to some of her critics. "Hartnett-White was all three - a trifecta", he said. It cited her "dangerous" views about climate change, saying.

The committee, in light of Bannon's expected absence, could move to hold him in contempt, beginning a process that could end in a full House vote authorizing GOP leaders to seek criminal charges against Bannon.

The Democratic document aims to counter the Republican document, which accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department of abusing their authority in monitoring a onetime Trump campaign associate.

They also expressed hope that special counsel Robert Mueller's work would continue without interference. It now goes to President Donald Trump for a five-day review, and he will decide whether to allow its release — as he did with the Republican document last week.

The House intelligence committee has voted to release a second classified memo about whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department conspired against President Donald Trump.

Maldives police disperse crowds celebrating court's freeing of opposition leaders
Earlier, Nasheed had said the ruling cleared the way for him to return to the Maldives and contest elections due later this year. Yameen's office said Attorney General Mohamed Anil had raised the administration's concerns with the chief justice.

Mr. Mueller is investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election and allegations of collusion involving the Trump campaign. On Monday, Schiff plans to try to win public release of a Democratic answer to a Republican memo released Friday that attempted to undermine one aspect of the investigation.
