A federal grand jury on Friday indicted Trump’s economic advisor Peter Navarro for contempt of Congress after he refused to cooperate with Liz Cheney’s unconstitutional January 6 Committee.
Earlier this year the abusive January 6 panel voted to advance contempt charges against Trump’s aides Dan Scavino and Peter Navarro.
Peter Navarro and Dan Scavino didn’t provide any documents to the House panel and refused to show up for their depositions.
The full House of Representatives voted in April to refer Navarro to the Justice Department for not complying with the J-6 panel’s subpoena.
Navarro was indicted and faces two contempt counts.
A federal grand jury has indicted former Trump White House adviser Peter Navarro for contempt of Congress after he refused to cooperate in the House January 6 committee’s investigation.
According to the Justice Department, Navarro will make an appearance in court Friday at 2:30 p.m. ET in Washington.
He faces two contempt counts: one for his failure to produce documents demanded by the committee and the second for failing to show up for subpoenaed testimony before House investigators.
The indictment comes after Navarro revealed Monday that he had been subpoenaed by federal prosecutors who were seeking documents related to his decision. Navarro said in an interview with MSNBC Thursday night that he “responded” to the Justice Department, but he declined to say he would be willing to turn over the documents requested by prosecutors.
