Steve Bannon to surrender to Capitol Hill

Hear the full audio from Mr. Bannon’s appearance on Tuesday.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is expected to surrender to Capitol Hill on Thursday in the case of charges filed against him by two former business partners.

Bannon, who spoke with the House Intelligence Committee in June, was charged in July by the House Oversight Committee with contempt of Congress after he failed to comply with a subpoena from that panel and its Republican chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina.

The filing in the US District Court for the District of Columbia alleges that Bannon has refused to provide documents requested by the panel related to Bannon’s consulting for entities connected to European Business Investments Ltd.

Bannon is set to appear at the US District Court in Washington for a hearing Thursday, according to the House Oversight Committee’s website.

Bannon met with the panel in June as part of its work on “illegal foreign money payments and foreign political funding on behalf of foreign candidates,” according to a statement from the committee’s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland.

Bannon was indicted on charges of obstruction, conspiracy and making false statements in July.
