Bannon gets week extension from House panel

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House intelligence committee is giving former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon another week to negotiate the terms of a closed-door interview.

Amanda Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, says the committee extended the deadline on Bannon’s subpoena until next Tuesday.

The extension is the third time Bannon’s interview has been postponed. The committee wants to interview him as part of its investigation into Russia election meddling and any coordination with Trump associates.

Bannon’s lawyer has been negotiating with the committee and the White House about the interview’s terms. At issue is whether the White House will allow Bannon to answer questions about his time in the Trump administration.

Bannon is also scheduled to be interview by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team next week.
