    Oh he could still know pleanty. Those people weren’t exactly criminal masterminds.

    He may not have been directly involved when it happened, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t find out.

But then, Mueller steps in and subpoenas Bannon too. Life is very fair. But, fair is so uncool. Why can't those interviews be live , lord? WHYYYYYYY?

    I know, that was so weird. Apparently the WH didn't want him talking. So he invoked EP - but I have not idea how he could do that while he was on the campaign trail and the transition team.

    Apparently they are scared he knows too much.

    They are nationalists. Most trump supporters are white.

    Yes, lots of people call trump racist, anti gay, etc... But never really more than the claims.

    Looks as though he has avoided a grand jury testimony at this time

    Washington (CNN)Steve Bannon has struck a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller's team and will be interviewed by prosecutors instead of testifying before the grand jury, two people familiar with the process told CNN. He is expected to cooperate with the special counsel, the sources said.

    The sources did not say when the interview will take place or if the subpoena would be withdrawn.
    Bannon, the former White House chief strategist for President Donald Trump, is expected to talk openly to Mueller's team. Bannon's attorney told the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday that Bannon would answer questions when he goes to the special counsel because executive privilege would not apply, according to one of the sources
    Bannon will do interview with special counsel, avoiding grand jury for now - CNNPolitics

    With the threat of a grand jury over his head and no executive privilege, he won’t be able to stonewall Mueller like he did congress

    he seems to have better lawyers than Trump. Gotta love how they implicated the WH in his refusal to answer questions asked by congress. Since no one seems to recognize Trump's creative use of executive privilege it's technically obstruction on Trump's part. It's a brilliant strategy. Now, he goes before the FBI where he can't assert Trump's fake executive privilege claims. He'll have to answer. Having already set the stage to throw who ever he wants to in WH under the bus. I fully expect him to wave to the cameras after testifying to Jared with a smirk on his face.
