Former Trump administration adviser Peter Navarro filed a request asking the Supreme Court to review his plea to get out of prison.

On Tuesday, Navarro’s lawyers asked Justice Neil Gorsuch to look over the request initially denied by Roberts. The Supreme Court allows parties to resubmit requests to individual justices if their emergency appeals are denied by a separate single justice.

“We respectfully request that our application for an order staying the execution of the district court’s order requiring Dr. Navarro submit to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons be renewed with the Honorable Associate Justice Gorsuch,” Navarro’s attorneys, Stan M. Brand and Stanley E. Woodward, Jr., said.

It’s the second time Navarro’s asked the nation’s highest court to set him free while he challenges his conviction. Chief Justice John Roberts shut down the first request last month, a day before Navarro went to prison on March 19. 

Navarro, 74, was convicted last year on two counts of contempt of Congress.
