This story is breaking.

On Friday, a federal grand just indicted former Trump aide Peter Navarro with two counts of criminal contempt of Congress for defying subpoenas from the House Jan. 6 Select Committee.

The Daily Mail reports:

Navarro has been charged with two counts of contempt, one for failing to appear for a deposition before the committee and one for failing to produce documents.  The former Trump trade adviser is due to appear in court Friday afternoon for the charges.

Late last month Navarro launched legal action against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the committee, claiming that they have no legal right to hold him in contempt of Congress for refusing to give evidence.

The Justice Department noted that each charge has a minimum of 30 days and maximum of one year jail time, as well as a fine of up to $100,000.

The House voted to forward the case to the Justice Department last month.

But in an 88-page legal filing shared with DailyMail.com, Navarro argues that President Joe Biden had no authority to waive former President Donald Trump‘s executive privilege or his former adviser’s ‘testimonial immunity.’

If he was a Democrat they would be saying ‘Nothing to see here folks’! Democrats are never prosecuted and get away with lying, cheating, stealing and even murder (think Clintons on that point)! These idiots and the entire Biden administration are fools who are destroying America with stupid policies every day! None of them have any real solutions and only try to destroy anyone on the right who disagree with them by calling them Racists and a number of other nasty names rather than actually working on any real solution to the problems they have created!

That is a first class joke as the so called committee is illegal! And Nancy Pelosi should be sued for hand picking her committee! What is the point of even having rules if people like pelosi ignore them? Now we need a judge that is not corrupt enough to swallow the big pelosi lie! And tells pelosi she can not make up her own little Trump haters committee !

And the witch hunt continues. Democrats are going to be both shocked and enraged when they lose power in November and their house of cards falls. Elections do have consequences. Republicans will get their just due in November.
