A former Trump White House official was indicted on contempt charges on Friday for defying a Jan. 6 subpoena.

He was charged with two counts of contempt of Congress.

One count was for failing to appear for a House deposition, and the other was for failing to produce committee requested documents.

Here is your daily reminder that Michael Sussmann just got off without incident.

Here’s another reminder that Hillary Clinton, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, James Comey, and so many others on the DOJ side of the aisle are still walking free.

If you are a democrat, you are allowed to get away with murder.

AP News has the breaking development:

Former Trump White House official Peter Navarro was indicted Friday on contempt charges after defying a subpoena from the House panel investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Navarro is former President Donald Trump’s second aide to be charged with contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with the Jan. 6, 2021, investigation. His arrest comes months after the indictment of former White House adviser Steve Bannon.

Navarro, 72, was charged with one contempt count for failing to appear for a deposition before the House committee and a second charge for failing to produce documents the committee requested.

During an initial court appearance on Friday, Navarro alleged that the Justice Department had committed “prosecutorial misconduct” and said that he was told he could not contact anyone after was approached by an FBI agent at the airport on Friday and put in handcuffs. He said he was arrested while trying to board a flight to Nashville, Tennessee, for a television appearance.

Navarro blasted the FBI for the treatment he received:

Navarro: “They’re not coming for me and Trump. They’re coming for you.”

CNN with more:

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.

During a court appearance in Washington, DC, on Friday, 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.

Navarro said he was arrested at a DC-area airport Friday on his way to Nashville.

He faces two contempt counts: one for his failure to produce documents demanded by the committee and the other 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.
