Former White House adviser Steve Bannon's interview with the House Intelligence Committee has been postponed even after the panel issued a subpoena to the former Breitbart News head, The Washington Post reports.

Reps. K. Michael Conaway, R-Texas, and Adam Schiff, D-Calif., wrote to Bannon's attorney on Wednesday to request a second meeting with the committee on Thursday at 2 p.m. to answer additional questions, telling Bannon to "clarify . . . the precise scope of any executive privilege claims the president may wish to invoke" with the White House beforehand.

The panel moved the meeting after Bannon's lawyer, William Burck, told the panel that they had given his client "plainly insufficient time" to coordinate with President Donald Trump's administration about what he's able to discuss, saying there was "no conceivable way" they could have done so by that time.

The committee has suggested meeting instead on Jan. 29, but Bannon has not agreed to the new date yet.
