House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy downplayed Steve Bannon defying a congressional subpoena, telling reporters Thursday it was “invalid” anyway.

The House is set to vote on holding Steve Bannon in criminal contempt for defying the subpoena issued by the January 6 select committee. Bannon is one of many Trump allies they want to hear from.

“Issuing an invalid subpoena weakens our power, not if somebody votes against it,” McCarthy said.

“He has the right to go to the court to see if he has executive privilege or not. I don’t know if he does or not, but neither does the committee. So they’re weakening the power of Congress itself by issuing invalid subpoenas,” he continued.

Pressed on what exactly makes it invalid, McCarthy said, “It was a select committee, for the first time in the history of Congress, that the minority was not able to participate in.”

McCarthy proposed five Republicans for the committee back in July. Speaker Nancy Pelosi approved three of them, but rejected Jim Jordan and Jim Banks. So McCarthy pulled all of his picks in retaliation.

Pelosi later named Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger to the committee.

McCarthy criticized Donald Trump in the wake of January 6th, but has firmly remained on Trump’s side. Given that McCarthy spoke with Trump on January 6, he could potentially face a subpoena — a move both Cheney and Kinzinger are open to.

Brooke Shields slams Barbara Walters as ‘practically criminal’ for ‘sexualizing’ her in interview when she was just 15

BROOKE Shields has slammed Barbara Walters for "sexualizing" her in an interview when she was just 15.

The Blue Lagoon actress, 56, blasted Barbara for asking "practically criminal" questions about her measurements and sexual history in 1981.

Brooke took part in the interview as part of her provocative campaign for Calvin Klein.

She reflected on the chat during an appearance on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast.

"It's practically criminal. It is not journalism," the former model said.

Dax agreed: "That Barbara Walters interview is maddening."

During the chat, Barbara grilled Brooke about her measurements, to which the teen replied: "I'm 5ft10 and 120lbs."

The broadcaster, now 92, then made Brooke stand up and stood next to the young actress to compare their figures.

"I think when people see you they don't realize how tall and slim you are. We haven't really seen you standing next to someone," the host said.

Barbara then claimed Brooke's "childhood was being stolen" because of her work in the showbiz industry - something Brooke and her mom Teri denied.

The interview was filmed as part of Calvin Klein's 1980 campaign, in which Brooke caused shockwaves after saying to the camera: "You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing."

OVERSEXUALIZED

The A Castle for Christmas star revealed she was "naive" at the time to the double entendre - the implication that she wasn't wearing any underwear in the shoot.

"I was naive, I didn't think anything of it. I didn't think it had to do with underwear. I didn't think it was sexual in nature," Brooke told Vogue in October.

"I'd say that about my sister, nobody could come between me and my sister.

"If they had intended on the double entendre, they didn't explain it to me. It didn't faze me. It didn't sort of come into my psyche as it being anything overtly sexual, sexualized in any way."

HEALTH ISSUES

Meanwhile, earlier this year Brooke broke her femur and had to learn to walk again using crutches.

Back in February, the model shared a video of herself walking in hospital and explained she's only allowed to put about 20 percent of her full body weight on her fractured thighbone. 

A fractured femur or thighbone is usually treated with surgery and intensive therapy and it can take months for the bone to heal.

The Suddenly Susan star married to screenwriter Chris Henchy in 2001 and they have two daughters - Rowan, 18, and Grier, 15.
