Trump Adviser Reports to Prison (Video)

( – In what might as well be described as an evil triumph of leftist persecution against Trump loyalists, former White House adviser Peter Navarro has reported to prison after he snubbed a congressional subpoena over the January 6, 2021, events at the US Capitol.

Navarro began serving a four-month prison sentence in Miami on Tuesday, The Hill reports.

“I’m pissed. That’s what I’m feeling right now. But I’m also afraid of only one thing. I’m afraid for this country, because this, what they’re doing, should have a chilling effect regardless of their party. They come for me, they can come for you,” Navarro stated.

The former adviser of President Donald Trump spoke at a  press conference in a parking lot shortly before surrendering to the authorities.

“Make no mistake about that, and make no mistake about this: They are coming after Donald Trump with the same tactics, tools and strategies they used to put me over there today,” he emphasized.

His effort to delay imprisonment while appealing his conviction for contempt of Congress was denied on Monday by U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts.

Roberts, in an uncommon “in-chambers” opinion, explained that Navarro lost any right to contest the district court’s decision regarding executive privilege, referencing an appellate court’s conclusion.

“I see no basis to disagree with the determination that Navarro forfeited those arguments in the release proceeding, which is distinct from his pending appeal on the merits,” said the chief justice, who received Navarro’s plea to avoid jail because he oversees urgent issues from the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals.

Navarro, aged 74, was found guilty last year on two counts of contempt of Congress: one for not providing documents for the inquiry and another for not attending his deposition with the House committee investigating the January 6 events.

During the trial, the presiding judge prevented him from claiming executive privilege as a defense, stating Navarro failed to demonstrate that such privilege was formally declared by former President Trump.

Navarro and his legal team argued this restriction severely limited their defense capabilities, with Navarro telling the court he genuinely believed executive privilege had been asserted.

“This is the partisan weaponization of our judicial system,” Navarro declared, criticizing the judges involved in his case as biased.

Steve Bannon, another former White House advisor, was similarly convicted of contempt of Congress last year and received a four-month sentence.

Unlike Navarro, Bannon was allowed to remain free while his appeal is pending, having argued his case before a federal appeals court without having served any time yet.

When inquired if he had communicated with Trump before his incarceration, Navarro humorously claimed “executive privilege” on the question but acknowledged significant support from Trump and his team.
