Peter Navarro Indicted for Refusing to Cooperate With Illegal Congressional Inquiry

Oh wait -- process crimes are crimes again?

I'm so surprised!

A federal grand jury has indicted former Trump White House adviser Peter Navarro for contempt of Congress after he refused to cooperate in the House January 6 committee's investigation.

According to the Justice Department, Navarro will make an appearance in court Friday at 2:30 p.m. ET in Washington.

He faces two contempt counts: one for his failure to produce documents demanded by the committee and the second for failing to show up for subpoenaed testimony before House investigators.

The House had voted in April to refer Navarro to the Justice Department for not complying with the select committee's February subpoena.

Navarro had claimed that he was unable to cooperate because former President Donald Trump had asserted executive privilege in the matter. The committee had countered those arguments by citing for example that many of the topics it wanted to discuss with him he had already written about in great detail in his book.

The indictment comes after Navarro revealed Monday that he had been subpoenaed by federal prosecutors who were seeking documents related to his decision. Navarro said in an interview with MSNBC Thursday night that he "responded" to the Justice Department, but he declined to say he would be willing to turn over the documents requested by prosecutors.

The documents that Liz Cheney and her Democrat pals are seeking are probably part of a fishing expedition, hoping to find Trump telling Navarro not to cooperate, so that they can attempt to charge Trump with obstruction of a congressional inquiry or some bullshit.

Again, we just had the jury forewoman in the Sussman case announce after she let Sussman walk, but critically, not in voir dire, before she was empaneled as a juror, that she didn't think that lying to the FBI should be a crime, considering all that was going on in the world.

But not cooperating with Eric Swalwell, Adam Schiff, and Liz Cheney is a super-important matter.

Republicans insist the committee is illegitimately composed, because the rules say that the minority party must be permitted to select its own members, and the GOP's selections were rejected by Pelosi and Schiff. Instead, Pelosi and Schiff picked their own "Republicans" -- Cheney and Kinzinger, of course.


There is a common thread from prominent House Republicans and former Trump administration officials who refuse to cooperate with the committee investigating last year's Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

"My position has not changed on this committee. It's not valid because Republicans were not allowed to appoint anybody. This is purely (House Speaker Nancy) Pelosi appointed," said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Fox. "This is what the Democrats have planned. Just to go after their political adversaries."

The 1/6 committee took the extraordinary step last month of issuing subpoenas to McCarthy and four other sitting House members for interviews about the riot. Lawmakers themselves may have a beef with that since such a maneuver was unprecedented. But one of the lawmakers subpoenaed questioned the very existence of the panel.

"I think this is an illegitimate committee and they don't really have the authority to issue subpoenas," Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said on Fox News.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, even threatened Democrats should Republicans capture the House in this fall's midterms.

"Is this the way they want to go forward? Do you want one party being able to subpoena the other party, the majority party, being able to subpoena the minority party and play the politics that they're playing here? We'll see," warned Jordan on Fox.

Hopefully they'll challenge the committee's legitimacy in court.

But Kevin McCarthy will not, of course, allow actual conservatives to use Democrat Rules to go after his Democrat Friends and Allies.

Meanwhile:

I'm sure no one wants to even hear about this now, but "Primary Sub-Source" Igor Danchenko -- the employee of the leftwing Brookings Institution (where crooked FBI lawyer and friend of Michael Sussman James Baker later took a job) who made up all of the "Russian Intelligence" about Trump featured in the "Steele Dossier" -- will be facing his own trial in a few months, this one not in DC but in northern Virginia (a little bit less monolithically leftwing, but not by much) and for multiple false statements.

Jonathan Turley talks about that, as well as the judge and jury letting Sussman walk in defiance of the law and evidence.

William Barr notes that there's a double standard in justice, especially for the Clintons. He doesn't really dispute the fact that the FBI leadership framed Trump -- he just says that Durham could not build a case against Sussman by walking into court and saying "The FBI were the bad guys here."

He also points out that, who knows, maybe Danchenko could possibly, conceivably be convicted by a Democrat jury, under the direction of a Democrat judge.



Meanwhile: Here's how Hillary Clinton takes care of her potential subpeonable witnesses.

Here's the thing: this isn't their opinion, its not just something the GOP insists on. Its objective absolute fact. It is an illegitimate committee, but it doesn't matter, because the committees don't accomplish anything but fund raising letters anyway.

When was the last congressional hearing or committee that actually mattered and changed anything? The Church committee in the 70s?

The RNC was subpoenaed by the J6 committee and fought it in the D.C. Circuit. A Trump appointed judge ruled that while the RNC would be irreversibly harmed by complying with the subpoena, it still needed to comply.

That ruling is on appeal to the D.C. Circuit, IIRC.

There will be no relief from J6 committee subpoenas unless SCOTUS gets involved.

91 William Barr notes that there's a double standard in justice, especially for the Clintons. He doesn't really dispute the fact that the FBI leadership framed Trump -- he just says that Durham could not build a case against Sussman by walking into court and saying "The FBI were the bad guys here."

He also points out that, who knows, maybe Danchenko could possibly, conceivably be convicted by a Democrat jury, under the direction of a Democrat judge.

Danchenko was indicted on 5 counts of lying to the FBI not just one and in his case there is lots of documented evidence not just a he said she said.

And the EDVA is different from DC. DC votes over 90% for Democrats year in and year out. EDVA is not exactly a Republican stronghold but compared to DC it is much more likely to not be a corrupt dump of a jury.

I know the meme is that the poor FBI was tricked but that's not really what the evidence in Sussmann's trial showed. There were even FBI agents who testified that they knew immediately when seeing the "evidence" Sussmann provided that it was complete bullshit and that "7th Floor" at FBI HQ overturned their findings and opened the investigation. That would be Comey, McCabe, Strzok and the usual cast of characters.

Except you have to get elected first, and Desantis can't win a national election, especially after the media starts focusing on him 24/7 like they did with Trump (and Romney and McCain before that). Desantis almost lost to the crackhead Gillum for FL governor. Trump carried him over the finish line. The only reason he will get re-elected there is because he has done a good job, especially cleaning up the voting system in the state, and the media has still been focused 99.9% of the time on Trump, not him.

Trump, otoh, got 74 million+ legit votes with the most diverse coalition of any GOP candidate ever. He only "lost" the election due to less than 47k votes in 3 swing states *after* the Dems flooded them with mail in ballots and flagrantly violated election laws.

Anyone saying they prefer Desantis or that Desantis, who again, will NEVER win the mid-West, is working for the establishment/Mitch McConnell, whether they realize it or not.

Haha - I pictured Navarro having a little device that after each question from Schiff, he pushes a button that plays a recording one of many different responses in that vein that Hillary Clinton made in her Bengazi testimony to congress. Versions of "I don't recall" with a "What difference at this point, does it make" thrown in. If your going to be charged for contempt of congress, show your contempt like a master.

154 I know the meme is that the poor FBI was tricked but that's not really what the evidence in Sussmann's trial showed. There were even FBI agents who testified that they knew immediately when seeing the "evidence" Sussmann provided that it was complete bullshit and that "7th Floor" at FBI HQ overturned their findings and opened the investigation. That would be Comey, McCabe, Strzok and the usual cast of characters.

Posted by: JackStraw at June 03, 2022 01:29 PM (ZLI7S)


Yes but the point is the materiality of the lie. If Sussmann's case proved that the FBI was motivated by animus to Trump, then Danchenkos false statements are immaterial.

No, not really. The case was decided by the jury before it even started.

The evidence of Sussmann's guilt was overwhelming. You won't find a serious legal analyst who will argue that. Not even Turley believes it and he is a flaming liberal.

There was ample evidence that Sussmann's lie was material. It was straight up jury nullification just like OJ. And Danchenko's case is built on different evidence.

The Senate after 2024 is going to be way different than the 2016 Senate. A lot of the old dinosaurs who were Deep State have passed on.

I hope he would nominate a roomful of people no one has ever heard of, And if you forgot, even Trump started to get good at nominating "Operating executives" who could run the agencies while the Senate was dithering about confirmation. In short, there are ways around the confirmation issue that an aggressive and unapologetic executive can take.

The FBI analyst who was assigned to look at the crap Sussmann gave him which was made up by Rodney Joffe basically said you would have to be mentally deficient to think it was real. And yet FBI HQ went ahead with a full blown investigation anyway and leaked to the media they were investigating Trump for being a Russian stooge.

After the case was decided the Epoch Times published tons of exhibits that Durham collected. What they show is that the leadership of the FBI was full of lying dirtbags, they lied to others at the FBI, to the DOJ and to the public.

I don't think everyone at the FBI is corrupt but the leadership under both Mueller and Comey was.

That same government openly supports drug addiction, infanticide and sexual grooming of the youngest and most vulnerable. That same government insists that law abiding citizens who resist them are terrorists, and if they happen to be of European descent, White Supremacists as well. That same government unleashed a man-made pandemic and is in a globally concerted effort to return us all to a condition little if at all better than serfdom.

225 Personally I think it will be amusing when the GOP floats neither DeSantis or Trump regardless how well either does should they decide to run. DeSantis is marginally more pliable, but that independent streak is a non-starter with the rank and file GOP.

And forget Trump. He won't even make it onto the Republican ballot. Too much bad blood there. The GOP will see to it.

I watch lots of predator stings on YT. The predators are confronted with the challenge: "Talk to us, or we call the cops." The predators always talk, giving the pred catcher all the evidence needed, and then the cops are inevitably called.

I watch police interrogation vids. Even after being advised of rights, perps talk. People think that talking helps them. Talking can never help; it can only hurt. Cops are there to close cases, not to protect the innocent.

As an aside, while in hindsight I'm glad he didn't do it, the Rittenhouse judge should have declared a mistrial the moment the prosecutor argued that the defendant's silence showed guilt.

At to your point, yes. No one should speak to the FBI, period, nor should an attorney allow them to do so. There is a reason they don't record statements and "memorialize" them after the fact. But be certain to curtly invoke the Fifth.

And that dickhead judge? Antonin Scalia and the majority of the Supremes he persuade to follow him.

James Duane, in his book You Have The Right To Remain Innocent, recommends declining to talk without a lawyer present ("I want a lawyer") rather than invoking the Fifth precisely because the case law on the Fifth has become unfavorable to an extent that is complicated and uncertain.

three boxes that a Republican needs to check to avoid being considered a RINO today:

Personal loyalty to Donald Trump.

Tolerance of corruption by favored groups and persons.

Tolerance for the actions of Vladimir Putin.


That’s it. That’s the Republican program now. And if you’re not onboard with those three positions, then all the ACU scores in the world won’t save you.

While the dealer did the halfheartedly "I want my lawyer" business, the cops interrogating him got him to write an apology letter to the family of the slain witness before his lawyer did arrive. The lawyer got him out and then chided him about writing the letter. Didn't amount to anything IIRC.

Desantis almost lost to the crackhead Gillum for FL governor. Trump carried him over the finish line. The only reason he will get re-elected there is because he has done a good job, especially cleaning up the voting system in the state, and the media has still been focused 99.9% of the time on Trump, not him.

Trump, otoh, got 74 million+ legit votes with the most diverse coalition of any GOP candidate ever. He only "lost" the election due to less than 47k votes in 3 swing states *after* the Dems flooded them with mail in ballots and flagrantly violated election laws.

Anyone saying they prefer Desantis or that Desantis, who again, will NEVER win the mid-West, is working for the establishment/Mitch McConnell, whether they realize it or not.

Trump won, twice.

He didn't fail, his election was stolen. And he's running in 2024 and DeSantis isn't. Trump has been basically saying he's running at his rallies for months including the other night to a sold out hall in Wyoming and DeSantis has said that if Trump runs he isn't.

Trump was a neophyte in 2016. He didn't know many people in politics which was the biggest part of his appeal, he was an outsider. And not many would even work for him because he was a Russian spy.

They need some pencil-necked geeks with MS project slapping them around like right now.

Yes, but the GOPukes never formerly referred it to the DOJ, it was all Kabuki.

And I'm sure had they, Holder and then Loretta Lynch would have moved swiftly to indict Holder.

Posted by: It's me donna at June 03, 2022 01:58 PM (bs+z0)


No Federal Court will interfere. The tribunal is not illegal. It is, per McCarthy, in contravention of the House Rules in effect at the time. The Constitution says the the House and Senate establish their own rules. I say that by definition this means each house establishes its own rules for rule disputes. Point, set, match to Pelosi, as long as she has the votes to do what she wants to do.

There are plenty of people out in the world that are capable of carrying out a plan according to schedule to get good work done. I'm only noting that the left's opposition doesn't seem to do that. They always seem to be behind twiddling their thumbs, "how did this happen!"

320 WT actual F.

My post was deleted because I stated the obvious that Desantis is Bobby Jindal 2.0? Zero charisma.

And it was only his charisma and that he was a cultural icon long before 2016 that allowed Trump to beat the media and win 2016. And it was that status that got him 75 million+ votes in 2020 with most diverse coalition of any GOP candidate ever.

People knew Trump wasn't a r*cist, which is why only hard core lefties bought the media saying he was. Desantis doesn't have that advantage, as an example.

People here don't have to like it and my posts pointing it out can keep being deleted, but it's a fact. Desantis in a national election will be lucky to have Romney's numbers and the establishment is happy to have him lose to the Democrat.

321 Personal loyalty to Donald Trump. - No, my loyalty is to my principals and the constitution. It just so happens that Trump's actions mostly aligned with both, in huge contrast to the performance of most so called Republican leaders.

Tolerance of corruption by favored groups and persons. - No I have no tolerance for any corruption (a unfortunate weak spot for my own personal corruption, that's between me and God mostly), but since it is rampant, my focus is more towards the corruption that endangers our nation and way of life

Tolerance for the actions of Vladimir Putin. - If Vladimir's actions endanger our nation, our citizens, way of life and to a bit lesser extent, our allies, then No. Otherwise, case by case basis response to his actions.

I guess this last answer makes me a RINO.

So, I need to find a new party I guess.

323 I know the meme is that the poor FBI was tricked but that's not really what the evidence in Sussmann's trial showed. There were even FBI agents who testified that they knew immediately when seeing the "evidence" Sussmann provided that it was complete bullshit and that "7th Floor" at FBI HQ overturned their findings and opened the investigation. That would be Comey, McCabe, Strzok and the usual cast of characters.
