House Intelligence Committee Summons Bannon And Lewandowski To Testify On Russian Interference

Bloomberg reports:

President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon and his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski have been asked to testify to House lawmakers investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Both men were sent letters this week by the House Intelligence Committee asking them to testify in early January, according to an official familiar with the panel’s schedule.

The committee hasn’t yet received a response from either Bannon or Lewandowski. The invitation, which didn’t come in the form of a subpoena compelling them to testify, was for a “voluntary interview” in the committee’s offices, which means it would be held behind closed doors, the official said.

    Don’t trust a thing either one will say, even under oath.

    • Mike C

      Oh, I’m counting on them lying and I’m counting on them being dumb enough to get caught.

      • Sporkfighter

        They can’t get caught if the Republican house members are unwilling to ask questions they don’t want answered.

      • ted-

        Oooh, that would be great

      is it permissible to be intoxicated while under oath?

      • J Ascher

        Under or over oath, it doesn’t matter as long as Bannon gets to be intoxicated.

      • Nowhereman

        I’d love to see him get slapped with a tui–testifying while intoxicated.

    • Nowhereman

      He does look like a vodka drinker. Puffy, bloated, wet-brained. (My mom drank Salty Dogs from about noon till whenever she passed out.)

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Behind closed doors my ass. Pull them into the burning daylight and let everyone see what these assholes say.

  • Blake J Butler

    But i guess bernbots will ask for his resignation like they asked for Joy Reid’s right ?

    (crickets).

      Maybe if men could get pregnant, they wouldn’t want to have sex with everyone they meet.

  • Yeah, well the House is controlled by Republicans. So how is the real investigation going? You know. Muller’s.

  • Lazycrockett

    Well the should quiet the rumors of house closing it down. for now. Probably also means Mueller is safe for a while longer.

    • Michael White

      Did I hear on MSNBC a couple of weeks ago that the house committee is taking documents away from Mueller? When the house (tRump’s santorum) takes them they don’t give the back?

      • They had a story recently about how a group of Republicans have been meeting secretly to use documents obtained in the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation to try to undermine the credibility of the FBI agents involved. But though they are using the same documents, the documents themselves would not be able to be removed from the SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) where they are currently stored, and doesn’t prevent the Committee from continuing to use them. And it doesn’t involve Mueller’s investigation or his documents at all, just the Committee’s.

        I don’t know if that’s the story you heard or if there’s another story you heard that I missed.

  • Lars Littlefield

    I can only imagine that interrogating Bannon will be like questioning Cartman from SouthPark.

  • Sporkfighter

    Did they send those letters along with a dozen roses, the questions they will be asked, and the answers the Republicans want to hear?

    • Nowhereman

      Of course! And Jeff “I don’t recall” Sessions will be giving them advice on how to filibuster their non-answers when a democrat is asking the questions.

  • Halou

    The Republicans are going to grill him so hard, asking about such relevant things as who he thinks unmaked the cabal of Russian agents, or what punishment he thinks should be given to Hillary Clinton for the crime of sending and receiving emails on the only server not hacked by “not Russians”.
