Stephen Bannon was just called to testify in the Trump-Russia investigation

And now, good people of America, the moment we’ve all been waiting for.

Stephen K. Bannon, the visibly decaying morass of colon polyps who was the former Chief Strategist to President Donald Trump and then re-emerged from the foetid abyss to reclaim his position as fascist hate rag Breitbart’s chairman, has finally been called to testify before the House Intelligence Committee in regards to the investigation into the Donald Trump for President campaign’s alleged collusion with agents of the Russian Federation.

Former Trump campaign manager turned pundit Corey Lewandowski has also been issued an invitation to testify before Congress about exactly what happened behind the scenes of the Trump campaign – and to determine who knew what when.

However, their presence before the House Intelligence Committee is voluntary at this point.

The House Intelligence Committee’s Trump-Russia investigation has been derailed from the start by the clumsy machinations of Republicans, who have been doing everything in their power to sabotage their own inquiry and to distract the American people by crying “Hillary!” at every possible turn.

The former chairman of the House intelligence committee, Devin Nunes (R-CA) openly served at the beck and call of the White House for several weeks, dutifully helping the White House assemble the pieces needed to somehow spin the allegations against Trump into a distracting conspiracy theory that blamed President Obama and his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice.

Nunes was forced to recuse himself after his late-night trips to the White House were unearthed by the Daily Beast.

Whether or not the hard-working Democrats, led by Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-CA), will be allowed to get a word in edgewise and actually do their jobs remains to be seen – or even if the notorious propagandist will show up at all.

But the House’s call for Bannon and Lewandowski is likely to be followed by a similar appeal from the Senate Intelligence Committee – and what they have to say will definitely be of great interest to Special Counsel Mueller.
