Nancy Pelosi and her gang are using everything they possibly can from the Jan. 6 investigation to go after Trump, even though the committee already lost its credibility long ago due to its change in course from investigation to political persecution.
Well thankfully, someone has had enough of this nonsense: former Trump advisor Dr. Peter Navarro has chosen to take legal action again House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the January 6 committee on the grounds that they have no right to hold Trump in contempt of Congress for refusing to provide evidence.
The filing came after Navarro had recently released a draft of the lawsuit, which also indicated that he too had been a subject of the grand jury subpoena by Matthew Graves, the U.S. attorney for D.C.
Yahoo News provided more details on the story:
Peter Navarro, a former trade adviser to then-President Donald Trump, announced he would file a federal lawsuit Tuesday challenging a subpoena from the House committee investigating the Capitol attack Jan. 6, 2021.
The panel subpoenaed him for testimony about a plan called the “Green Bay Sweep” to delay certification of President Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election. Navarro described the plan in his book “In Trump Time” as the “last, best chance to snatch a stolen
But Navarro, who is representing himself in the lawsuit, called the Green Bay Sweep strategy legal and constitutional under the 1887 Electoral Count Act. He is fighting the subpoena by arguing the committee is illegitimate and partisan.
And Navarro invoked executive privilege to keep communications with the president confidential. He joined a handful of Republican members lawmakers defying the committee and more than a dozen Trump aides and advisers who have filed lawsuits challenging committee subpoenas in court.
Furthermore, some of these key details were also shared on Dr. Navarro’s website:
On February 9, 2022, I received a subpoena in which I was “commanded to be and appear before a Kangaroo Court established by Nancy Pelosi, AKA the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol.”
Upon receipt of this subpoena, as a former senior White House adviser to President Donald J. Trump clearly covered by testimonial immunity, I was faced with several choices, including: (1) respect President Trump’s invoking of executive privilege in the Committee’s investigation and fail to comply with the subpoena; or (2) unilaterally waive President Trump’s Executive Privilege and my own testimonial immunity by providing all of the requested documents and testifying before the Committee as commanded.
I chose Option #1; and Pelosi’s Kangaroo Court responded with a criminal contempt of Congress, with the intent to imprison me and fine me. In this suit, I argue that the January 6th Committee is unconstitutional and unlawful and its subpoenas are thereby unenforceable.
The fact of the matter here is that if this Kangaroo Court of a Committee is allowed to continue in its present form, it will continue to make a mockery of due process, the separation of powers, any legitimacy behind the power of Congress to investigate, and thereby do great damage to our Republic.
Please read this case carefully and you will see that it is time for the U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in on this whole issue.
They are not coming for me. They are coming for Donald Trump. I’m just in their way.
