Former White House strategist Steve Bannon appeared on Capitol Hill Tuesday to testify before the House Intelligence Committee as part of the ongoing Russian Federation probe.

The special counsel's office has used subpoenas before to seek information on Mr. Trump's associates and their possible ties to Russian Federation or other foreign governments.

He didn't specify the committee he'll appear before, but sources have told CNN he is expected to testify before the House Intelligence Committee.

News of the subpoena came on the same day that Bannon testified before the House Intelligence Committee about what he witnessed when he worked on the Trump campaign between August 2016 and November 2016.

But the pair had a bitter public falling out over comments Mr Bannon made to author Michael Wolff for his recent book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

President Donald Trump publicly criticized Bannon for his comments, saying the former strategist had "lost his mind".

But sitting White House officials rarely appear before the congressional panels investigating Russian Federation meddling, making Hicks' appearance even more significant - especially given her ties to the President. Six days later, Bannon stepped down from his post as executive chairman at Breitbart News.

Bannon is said to have expressed "regret" over the remarks.

Called White House Rasputin, he was sacked last August after eight months of controversy with or members of Trump's team, but things were twisteded completely two weeks ago, when, with publication of book Fire and Fury, y went out to Light some incendiary statements of Bannon, in which it crossed eldest son, Donald Trump Junior, of "traitor".

A hard-line nationalist who sought to shake up USA domestic and foreign policy, Bannon, 64, was forced out as Trump's chief strategist in August.

When Trump Jr. met with the House panel previous year, he testified that he texted initially with Hicks - not his father - when first confronted about the reports about the Trump Tower meeting. Instead, he's merely shifted the blame away from Trump Jr. and onto Manafort.
