Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon won't appear before the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday, escalating a tense standoff with the panel.
Bannon was not planning on showing up ahead of a Tuesday deadline because the White House and committee haven't reached an agreement over the scope of the questioning, a source said Monday.
The House Intelligence Committee confirmed Tuesday it was giving Bannon another week to comply with its subpoena.
"The House Intelligence Committee's interview with Stephen Bannon has been postponed at the Committee's initiative until next week," Emily Hytha, spokeswoman for Rep. Mike Conaway, the Republican running the committee's Russia probe, said in a statement. "We look forward to having him before the Committee once we can assure that he will be able to thoroughly answer all our questions without concerns regarding the scope of executive privilege."
This is the third extension on this subpoena that this committee has provided to Bannon, which kind of makes them appear completely toothless right now.
It could simply be that Bannon, like most of America, simply has no respect for Devin Nunes, the chairman of that committee, because he has another date to testify that he is supposedly taking much more seriously.

Steve Bannon, the former chief strategist to President Donald Trump, is scheduled to speak with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators next week as they probe possible obstruction of justice by the president.
That’s according to two people familiar with Bannon’s interview. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record about details of the interview.
One of the people says Bannon plans to tell Mueller “everything” he knows.
I actually get the feeling that Bannon is eager to share what he knows with Mueller.
And we know from Michael Wolff's book that he certainly loves to talk.
