Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on Tuesday refused to answer a broad array of queries from the House Intelligence Committee about his time working for President Donald Trump, provoking a subpoena from the panel's Republican chairman.The congressional subpoena came the same day The New York Times reported that Bannon -- a former far-right media executive and recently scorned political adversary of the president's -- has been subpoenaed by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify before a federal grand jury.With the issuance of Mueller's subpoena, Bannon became the highest-ranking person who served in the Trump White House to be called before a grand jury as part of the special counsel's investigation.Congressional officials declined to say whether Bannon disclosed Mueller's subpoena during an all-day, closed-door interview with members of the House Intelligence Committee.Schiff said the committee plans to call Bannon back for a second interview.More recently, Bannon has said he was not referring to Trump Jr. but rather to Manafort.
