White House doctor says Trump in 'excellent' overall health

Stephen Bannon, U.S. President Donald Trump's former chief strategist, was subpoenaed last week by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify before a grand jury as part of the investigation into possible links between Trump's associates and Russian Federation, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

It is the first time special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed someone from within the United States leader's inner circle.

The New York Times said Mr Mueller had summoned Mr Bannon last week, citing a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

In the book, Bannon is quoted as describing a June 2016 meeting between Trump associates, including the president's son Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and a Russian lawyer, as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

Committee members could also ask Bannon about his interactions with Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty past year to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russians and is now cooperating with Mueller's investigation.

Mr Bannon was present for several controversial moments in the Trump administration, including the firing of former national security adviser Michael Flynn after he misled the Vice President about his dealings with Russian Federation.

The move to issue a subpoena during the middle of an interview is an unusual one - and is a departure from how committee lawmakers have handled other witnesses who have declined to answer certain questions.

"We expect to have Mr. Bannon back in, we hope very soon, with a different position by the White House", Schiff said.

Sixty-four trade groups, foreign governments, Republican candidates and others stayed at or held events at properties linked to U.S. President Donald Trump during Trump's first year in office, a political watchdog group said in a report released on Tuesday. Jackson said he was increasing Trump's dosage of the cholesterol medication to "further decrease his cardiac risk". "This was effectively a gag order by the White House preventing this witness from answering nearly any question".

That's according to Jack Langer, a spokesman for Rep. Devin Nunes of California, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Bannon apologized a few days later, but was stripped of his job leading the pro-Trump news site Breitbart News.

Critics began openly questioning Trump's mental heath this month following a tweet in which he said he has a bigger nuclear button than North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, and the publication of Fire and Fury, a book about the White House, in which anonymous Trump acquaintances questioned the president's mental stability.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents went to Mr Bannon's home in Washington DC last week to serve him with the grand jury subpoena, according to NBC News.

Hicks is not the only high-level Trump staffer to appear before the committee.

According to one source, Bannon did not immediately comply with the subpoenas, which were for both testimony and documents.
