Donald Trump Jr. Visits Trump’s Former Aide Peter Navarro In Prison

Donald Trump Jr. recently visited former Trump aide Peter Navarro in federal prison.

In January Navarro was sentenced to four months in a federal prison after being found guilty of two counts of contempt of Congress.

Navarro was found guilty of contempt of Congress after refusing to testify before the House Jan. 6 Committee after receiving a subpoena.

In a statement to ABC News, Don Jr. shared Navarro is in “good spirits.”

Here’s what The Hill reported:

Donald Trump Jr. said Peter Navarro is in “good spirits” after visiting him at a federal prison in Miami, ABC News reported Monday.

Navarro was sentenced to four months in prison in January after being found guilty of two counts of contempt of Congress. The former Trump campaign adviser ignored a subpoena issued by the House Jan. 6 Committee.
Trump Jr. told ABC News it’s “important to show support” for Navarro, confirming his visit, adding that he believes Navarro is wrongly convicted.

Navarro repeatedly argued against his conviction in court, claiming that his refusal to testify to Congress was protected by executive privilege. The Supreme Court declined to take his case late last month. He reported to prison in March.

Fellow Trump campaign adviser Steve Bannon, who also ignored a subpoena from the committee, was similarly convicted of contempt. His conviction was upheld by a federal appeals court Friday.

Per ABC News:

Donald Trump Jr. visited Peter Navarro in a Miami federal prison, according to sources familiar with the situation.

Navarro, the former Trump White House adviser, was convicted in September of two counts of contempt of Congress for refusing to provide testimony and documents to the House Select Committee that investigated the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. He is currently being housed at Federal Prison Camp in Miami, Florida.
