Representative Trey Gowdy went after former White House adviser Steve Bannon on Fox News after the disgraced former chief at Breitbart failed to answer questions.
Bannon, who answered questions for reporters and had quotes posted in an anti-Trump book called Fire and Fury, refused to ask questions of congressional investigators. Gowdy lashed out:
“I am frustrated whenever people assert privileges that do not exist.”

“This is the same person who accused two of the president’s family members of committing treasonous acts,” Gowdy said. That’s a reference to a quote Bannon gave Wolff to describe the June 2016 meeting between first son Donald Trump Jr, White House adviser Jared Kushner, ex-campaign manager Paul Manafort, and a Kremlin-linked lawyer.
“If you are going to accuse somebody of a crime for which you can be put to death, what is your evidence for that?” he continued.
