WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former White House strategist Steve Bannon has struck a deal to be interviewed by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team instead of appearing before a grand jury, CNN reported on Wednesday, citing sources close to Bannon.

The New York Times said on Tuesday Bannon had been subpoenaed by Mueller to testify before a grand jury in an ongoing probe of alleged ties between Russia and President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.
