Former White House Advisor Peter Navarro Convicted for Contempt of Congress for Failing to Appear Before J6 Committee
Ignore the prior precedent of Attorney General Eric Holder refusing the appear before Congress and give testimony; the rules are different for Trump Republicans.
Peter Navarro refused to testify to the J6 committee. The committee held Navarro in contempt of Congress; they forwarded the case to the corrupt Merrick Garland Dept of Justice.
The DOJ pursued the case against Navarro, and he was convicted today of two counts of contempt of Congress by a DC jury.
WASHINGTON – Peter Navarro, a former White House adviser to Donald Trump, has been found guilty on two contempt-of-Congress charges for defying a subpoena from the House Jan. 6 select committee.
A jury returned the unanimous conviction Thursday after a four-hour deliberation, which followed a two-day trial featuring testimony from three former Jan. 6 committee staffers. Each count carries a one-year maximum sentence, and Navarro intends to appeal the verdict.
[…] After Navarro refused the panel’s demands, the House held him in contempt of Congress, forwarding the case to the Justice Department, which charged Navarro in June 2022.

Bannon was convicted in July 2022 and is fighting the matter on appeal. (read more)
