Bannon Lawyer Caught Colluding With Trump WH To ‘Obstruct Justice’ During House Intel Hearing

The case for obstruction of justice against President Donald Trump got a boost when Bill Burk, the attorney for former White House political strategist Steve Bannon, was caught relaying the questions his client was being asked during Tuesday’s closed-door testimony before the House Intelligence Committee back to officials at the Trump White House.

Burk “relayed questions, in real time” to the Trump White House, who in turn instructed Bannon to not answer any questions about things that happened both during the presidential transition in late 2016, or about his time within the White House, the Associated Press reports.

“It’s unclear who Burck communicated with or whether it was top White House lawyer Don McGahn,” the AP writes. “Burck is also representing McGahn in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claimed Tuesday that Bannon’s attorney contacted the White House after the committee subpoenaed him.

“This was effectively a gag order by the White House,” Schiff said.
