Peter Navarro, a former Trump White House adviser, has been ordered to report to prison by March 19th after receiving a four-month sentence for contempt of Congress.

Navarro defied a subpoena from the January 6th committee investigating the Capitol riot.

“Dr. Navarro has now been ordered to report to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons, FCI Miami, on or before 2:00PM EDT on March 19, 2024,” documents read.

“Accordingly, Dr. Navarro respectfully reiterates his request for an administratively stay… Should this Court deny Dr. Navarro’s motion, he respectfully requests an administrative stay so as to permit the Supreme Court review of this Court’s denial.”

He could become the first former Trump official imprisoned for crimes related to overturning the 2020 election.

His attorneys have requested a stay while appealing, but the judge who sentenced Navarro rejected claims of executive privilege and said Navarro made the committee’s job harder by refusing to comply with the subpoena.

“They had a job to do and you made it harder,” U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta said. “It’s really that simple.”

Navarro faces becoming the first imprisoned like Steve Bannon, who also received four months for ignoring a January 6th committee subpoena.
