Trump Adviser Sentenced To Four Months In Prison

On Thursday, former Trump adviser Peter Navarro was sentenced to four months in prison for refusing to comply with a congressional investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Last year, Navarro was convicted of two counts of contempt of Congress: one for failing to produce documents related to the probe and another for skipping his deposition. 

The Hill has more:

Prosecutors argued Thursday that Navarro showed “utter disregard” for the House committee’s probe and “utter contempt for the rule of law.” They asked the judge to impose a six-month prison term.

“The committee was investigating an attack on the very foundation of our democracy,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney John Crabb. “There could be no more serious investigation undertaken by Congress.”

The Justice Department (DOJ) has pushed back against claims Navarro’s sentence was politically motivated.

“It’s unfortunate that the statements mislead. They mislead,” Mehta said. “Nancy Pelosi is not responsible for this prosecution; Joe Biden isn’t responsible for the prosecution. It’s those kinds of statements from someone who knows better… that contributes to why our politics are so divisive.”

“Punishing Dr. Navarro won’t fix or change that,” Navarro attorney Stanley Woodward later said of the political climate.

  1. UNPHUXXINGBELIEVABLE! CONGRESS CLEARED TRUMP OF INSURRECTION AND TRUMP HAS NEVER BEEN CHARGED WITH INSURRECTION. J6 COMMITTEE VIOLATED CONSTITUTIONAL LAW BY DESTROYING EVIDENCE AND SUBJECTING INNOCENT CITIZENS TO PRISON FOR DOING NOTHING BUT VISITING THE CAPITOL AFTER BEING INVITED INTO THE CAPITOL BY CAPITOL POLICE. THIS INSURRECTION WAS PELODI’S, FBI, DEMOKRAZIES, CIA, CAPITOL POLICE CHIEF AND A HOST OF OTHERS AS THEY KNEW TRUMP WOULD WIN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTE – SO THEY MADE SURE IT WAS DISRUPTED. HOWEVER, NO ONE MENTIONS THE FACT THERE WERE 500 THOUSAND TRUMP SUPPORTERS AT THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT LISTENING TO HIS SPEECH. “IF” HIS SPEECH WAS SO INCITEFUL WHY DIDN’T 500K PEOPLE MARCH UP THE AVENUES WRECKING HAVOC, DESTROYING PROPERTY AND INTIMIDATING OR INJURING INNOCENT PEOPLE? BECAUSE HIS SPEECH WAS NOT INCITEFUL. J6 IS A LIBERAL DEMOCRAP INSURRECTION !

  2. Of course, Hunter Biden will receive a similar or worse sentence since he is guilty as sin, as is the Commander in “Cheat,” Joe Boden! (sarc)

  3. So when is Biden’s grown man child going to be trialed for his actions and put in jail. There is actual evidence to do that not just the witch hunt of Old Nanc!

  4. So when are the chicken-s**t republicans going to charge Hunter with contempt of congress? Or does he choose his punishment like he chooses when he wants to show up to testify?
