It wasn’t too long ago when then Obama’s AG Eric Holder was held in contempt of congress back in 2012 for the “Fast and the Furious” gun running scandal to which he refused to hand over documents that most certainly would have implicated him and many others on having knowledge of the operation of gun running to the Mexican cartels that saw some border agents armed with bean bag guns get killed. Who can forget? Apparently most Americans who are currently embroiled with the myriad of distractions orchestrated from this illegitimate administration.
The reason why this is being mentioned, is because the double standards being displayed by the current DOJ and AG Merritt Garland, a political partisan hack is off the charts and he has decided to go after former Trump cabinet member Peter Navarro for contempt of congress when he ignored a subpoena to appear before the Jan 6th committee to which he is on record as stating its a farce. Moreover, however his current civil lawsuit against the DOJ and this admin for various constitutional violations is what really is in the crosshairs for some, especially the Marxist Democrats who have nothing but contempt for any Trump ally. Navarro’s recent commitment to stating he would impeach Biden when given the chance certainly set off issuance of a served indictment by the already corrupt stazi FBI. In either way not only the gross double standard being displayed by the DOJ by arresting Navarro is something to detest, but the blatant abuse of power that such institutions deemed to be politically weaponized in order to go after its enemies is going into uncharted waters not seen before in this nations history. This is what happens in such dark times, but Navarro could be the proverbial canary in the coal mine on whether or not he can beat this legal over reach by a system already reaching in tatters status, as most Americans view the current justice system broken and corrupt. Stay tuned, things are about to get really interesting.
Trump White House adviser Peter Navarro has been indicted on contempt of Congress charges, according to court documents unsealed Friday. Navarro, 72, was indicted by a federal grand jury for contempt after snubbing a subpoena from the House committee investigating Jan. 6 seeking testimony and documents.
Court documents indicate that the government requested that Navarro’s indictment be sealed until his “arrest operation is executed.” Navarro “is in custody pending the court appearance” later Friday.
“The events leading to the charges in the Indictment have been the subject of public scrutiny and concern,” federal prosecutors wrote in the motion to keep the case sealed until Navarro’s arrest. Public disclosure of the indictment, they wrote, “would give the Defendant the opportunity to flee, tamper with witnesses or evidence, or take other steps to interfere with the criminal case.”
Navarro was indicted on two counts of contempt of Congress, one for failing to provide papers, and another for failing to provide testimony. The House voted to refer Navarro to the Justice Department for contempt in April. The committee has said Navarro, a trade adviser during the Trump administration, played a key role “in the president’s effort to overturn the 2020 election.”
