The 4th Reich’s China Trade expert, Peter Navarro, hand-selected by Fratsputin after an Amazon review of his book, has turned down a plea offer for his Contempt of Congress charges:
(CNN)Former Trump White House trade adviser Peter Navarro rejected a plea offer from the Justice Department, prosecutors said in court on Friday.
The deal would have allowed Navarro to plead guilty to one of two contempt of Congress charges for not cooperating with the House’s ongoing January 6 investigation. Navarro would also be required comply with the House select committee’s subpoena “to the satisfaction of the Justice Department,” prosecutors said, and would cap Navarro’s potential jail sentence at 30 days.
FYI, each count of contempt of Congress is punishable by a maximum of one year in jail, as well as a fine of up to $100,000, according to the DOJ, so it was a pretty good plea deal. We still think his lawyers must be looking for the escape hatch.
Navarro’s Contempt of Congress trial starts Nov. 17.
