Rep. Adam Schiff Says White House Imposed ‘Gag Order’ on Bannon (Mediaite)

After the House Intelligence Committee concluded a hearing with Steve Bannon in which the former chief strategist was set to be questioned about Russian election tampering, Congressman Adam Schiff claimed a “gag order” by the Trump administration was put in place to keep the ex-official quiet.

Schiff, who is a ranking Democrat on the committee, said Bannon would not answer questions regarding his tenure in the Trump administration or during the transition — which obviously left little to be discussed in the hearing.
