Jan. 6 panel subpoenas former Trump White House trade adviser Peter Navarro

After he wrote a memoir detailing his attempts to delay certification of 2020 election results, the Democratic-led House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack at the Capitol has subpoenaed Peter Navarro, former Trump White House Trade Advisor.

Navarro is the 80th subpoena issued by the committee. The committee has interviewed more than 500 witnesses to determine the subplots behind the siege.

"Mr. Navarro seems to have information directly relevant the Select Committee's inquiry into the causes of January 6th attack at the Capitol," Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), said in a statement. He has not been shy about his role and discussed with the ex-President the support for these plans.

Navarro, like Trump's allies who were subpoenaed to him before him, called the investigation by the panel a "witch hunt" in a statement. Navarro also called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and several Republicans, including former Vice-President Mike Pence, "terrorists" and made a statement calling the investigation a "witch hunt." "Navarro leaned heavily on the executive privilege claims of former President Trump, signaling his inability to cooperate. He stated that President Trump had invoked Executive Privilege and it was not his privilege to waive. Trump was unsuccessful in a related case before the Supreme Court.

According to the committee, public reports and Navarro’s book detail how he tried to delay Congress's approval of President Biden's win as well as overturning the results.

The panel stated that Navarro worked with Steve Bannon, a former Trump advisor, to create efforts to delay the certification process. Navarro described the Green Bay Sweep as his "last and best chance" to seize an election stolen from the Democrats.

Thompson quoted Navarro's In Trump Time, My Journal of America’s Plague Year in his letter to Navarro. He also mentioned that Navarro, together with "more than 100" members Congress, said that Trump was "on board".

The committee stated that Navarro also published a three-part report titled the "Navarro Report" online. It contained misinformation and ties to false allegations of election fraud.

Thompson stated, "And, since you discussed these issues and others in your recently published work, in interviews with journalists, and, amongst other places, on a podcast,"

The panel asks Navarro to submit documents within two weeks (by February 23rd) and testify by March 2nd.
