Yesterday, Harvard-educated Economist and former Sr. Trump Advisor Dr. Peter Navarro went toe-to-toe with the snarky MSNBC activist Ari Melber over his decision to thumb his nose at the “kangaroo” Jan 6 Committee’s request to appear before them.
In the interview, Navarro explained to the sniveling MSNBC host that even though he didn’t believe in these make-believe congressional gangs who are acting as “judge, jury, and prosecutor,” he would use the same tactics against Democrats on the “kangaroo” committee when Republicans take back Congress and the White House. “You can bet your ass that I will lead the charge” to subpoena Democrats if Republicans return to power in Washington,” he said. “We’ll start with the impeachment of Biden for Ukraine, the southern border, all manner of things he is guilty of, and we’ll subpoena his senior staff,” Navarro told Melber.
Watch a short clip of the interview here:
Today, Dr. Navarro was arrested by the FBI for contempt of court and refusing to appear before the J6 Witch Hunt Committee while walking through the airport on his way to Nashville. Navarro accused the FBI of refusing to allow him to make a phone call.
The former top Trump official has refused to comply with the J6 “kangaroo” court.
During his court appearance in Washington, DC, today, Navarro said that he still wants to represent himself without a lawyer and accused prosecutors of using “hardball” tactics by arresting him at an airport and not allowing him to make a phone call.
NY Mag– Navarro is now the second of Donald Trump’s advisers to be indicted for criminal contempt of Congress for ignoring a Capitol Riot Committee subpoena, following the indictment of co-conspirator Steve Bannon, whose trial is set to begin on July 18. The House has also voted to hold in contempt former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and Trump aide Dan Scavino, though they have not been indicted.
In communication with the House panel, he has said that he could not cooperate because Trump had asserted executive privilege over such matters.
