WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. government on Friday called one-time White house adviser Steve Bannon to the stand in its trial of President Donald Trump’s former aide, Roger Stone.

Bannon appeared, wearing all black, to answer questions about Stone – a self-described “dirty trickster” and “agent provocateur” – who has pleaded not guilty to charges of obstructing justice, witness tampering and lying to the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee.
