Donald Trump’s onetime adviser Steve Bannon has agreed to testify to the House Committee investigating last year’s storming of the US Capitol, after the former president waived an assertion of executive privilege.   

Representative Zoe Lofgren, a California Democrat, said the committee received a letter from Bannon’s lawyer reversing the former aide’s previous refusal to testify.
