Steve Bannon reportedly told members of the House Intelligence Committee this week their investigation is solely designed to make President Donald Trump look bad.

Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., is a member of the committee and told Politico that Bannon said the panel's probe aims "to decertify the last election."

Bannon faced questioning for several hours behind closed doors Tuesday as the committee investigates whether Russia colluded with the Trump campaign.

The Associated Press reported Bannon's lawyer was communicating with the White House counsel's office to determine which questions he should not answer. White House chief of staff John Kelly said Wednesday the White House did not speak with Bannon about invoking executive privilege to avoid responding to certain questions.
