Report: Bannon Relayed Questions to White House During House Intel Interview
GAME OF TELEPHONE
Former White House top strategist Steve Bannon allegedly relayed questions from an interview with the House Intelligence Committee to the West Wing in real time on Tuesday via his attorney Bill Burck. According to the Associated Press, the White House then instructed Bannon—over the course of the day-long interview—to remain silent about his work on President Trump’s transition and his work for the administration. The report, based on anonymous sources, does not say whether Burck was specifically in communication with White House lawyer Don McGahn or someone else in the administration.
