Bannon 'asked to testify' in Russia probe

A media report says a probe into Russian meddling into the US election is reportedly asking controversial Donald Trump aide, Steve Bannon, to testify.

Steve Bannon, a former top White House strategist and a former chief campaign aide to Donald Trump, has been asked to testify before the US House of Representatives intelligence panel next month, Bloomberg News reports.

Corey Lewandowski, Trump's former campaign manager, was also asked to testify in early January, Bloomberg reported on Friday, citing an official familiar with the committee's schedule.

Representatives for the committee did not immediately respond to inquiries for comment. The panel is probing alleged Russian meddling into the 2016 US election.
