 Ex-Trump adviser Peter Navarro sentenced for contempt of Congress in Capitol riot probe

Former Trump White House official Peter Navarro was sentenced Thursday to four months behind bars for contempt of Congress for flouting a subpoena from the House select committee that investigated the 2021 Capitol riot.

Navarro, 74, argued that he couldn’t comply with the subpoena for his testimony and relevant documents because of executive privilege, but that claim was rejected in court and a DC jury convicted him in September of two counts of contempt of Congress.

“I haven’t heard a word of contrition from Dr. Navarro since this case began,” US District Judge Amit Mehta said before imposing the penalty.

The former presidential trade adviser made an unsuccessful plea for mercy, but Mehta still exceeded the mandatory minimum of two months of incarceration.

Navarro insisted to journalists as he arrived that he was the subject of “a very important landmark constitutional case that is going to resolve important issues about the Constitution’s separation of powers as well as the integrity and efficiency of presidential decision-making.”

Contempt for Congress charges seem to be situational and dependent on who is doing the contempting

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.
