    Steve Bannonformer White House adviser to donald trumpwas subpoenaed to provide documents and testimony to a federal grand jury investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 storming of the Capitol, a person familiar with the matter told NBC News.

    Bannon was subpoenaed about a month ago. Neither Bannon nor his attorney responded to requests for comment from various US outlets. The subpoena was first reported by NBC News.

    Bannon is among Trump allies who helped spread information about alleged voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election and the manipulation of Trump supporters and his Republican supporters.

    “All hell will break loose tomorrow,” Bannon predicted to his podcast listeners on January 5, 2021, the day before the attack on the United States Capitol.

    Bannon also urged Trump in December 2020 to focus his attention on January 6, the date of the Electoral College certification vote in Congress, according to the book “Peril,” by authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

    Those authors also reported that Trump called Bannon after a contentious January 5 meeting with then-Vice President Mike Pence, where Pence told Trump he did not have the authority to block the certification of the 2020 election results.
