Peter Navarro, former Presidential Advisor to Donald J. Trump, will be sentenced tomorrow in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. He was found guilty by the jury of two misdemeanor counts alleging violation of Title 2, U.S. Code, Section 192, which criminalizes the refusal of a witness to testify or produce documents to either House of Congress when summoned to do so. Navarro refused to appear or testify in front of the January 6 Committee, and refused to produce documents. He asserted Executive Privilege. Defendant Navarro has asked for two concurrent 6-month probationary sentences, a $100 fine on each count, and to remain free on bond during the pendency of his appeal. The government seeks a sentence of six months on each count, the Guidelines maximum, and a fine of $200,000. Here are the respective sentencing memos.
