Speculation over Bannon’s compliance mounted Monday as his scheduled appearance before the committee loomed.

“We have a subpoena for him in the morning and we expect it to be complied with,” House intel member Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) told reporters. “We have questions that are unanswered that we want answered on both sides.”

But having worked for Donald Trump haunts Hicks, Graydon Carter's newsletter Airmail revealed in an article titled, "Hix Pix Fox Flix: Ex–Trump whisperer Hope Hicks spins the Hollywood liberal establishment."

"If you’re young, beautiful, have a power job, money to play with, and a Brentwood Zip Code, Los Angeles can be a lot of fun. Unless you’ve got Donald Trump’s name on your résumé. The scarlet T burns bright in Hollywood," Shawn McCreesh reported.
