Former White House strategist Steve Bannon has said he's "willing" to testify before the House Jan. 6 committee after he received a letter from former President Donald Trump saying he would waive his claim of executive privilege, according to two letters obtained Sunday by NBC News.

In the letter, Trump said that Bannon had been treated “unfairly” and had been forced to “spend vast amounts of money on legal fees” and that he would therefore waive claims of executive privilege, which have been disputed, if Bannon agrees to a time and a place to testify.

“I will waive Executive Privilege for you, which allows for you to go in and testify truthfully and fairly, as per the request of the Unselect Committee of political Thugs and Hacks, who have allowed no Due Process, no Cross-Examination, and no real Republican members or witnesses to be present or interviewed. It is a partisan Kangaroo Court,” the letter says.

In a separate letter to the committee, Robert Costello, a lawyer for Bannon, wrote that "Trump has decided that it would be in the best interests of the American people to waive executive privilege for Stephen K. Bannon, to allow Mr. Bannon to comply with the subpoena issued by your Committee. Mr. Bannon is willing to, and indeed prefers, to testify at your public hearing."

Curious.

    The curious part of this is that Trump is waiving executive privilege, a privilege not held by former presidents, regarding Steve Bannon who was not in the White House in or around January 6th, 2021 and would therefore not be covered by executive privilege in any event.

    I'm not so sure the January 6th investigation committee even needs or wants to hear from Steve Bannon as a have obtained evidence and testimony from other sources.
