Donald Trump Jr. Visits Ex-Trump Adviser Peter Navarro In Miami Federal Prison

Sources familiar with the situation have revealed that Donald Trump Jr. paid a visit to Peter Navarro a former Trump White House adviser currently serving a sentence at the Federal Prison Camp in Miami Florida.

Navarro was found guilty of two counts of contempt of Congress for ignoring a subpoena issued by the House Jan. 6 Committee and sentenced to four months in prison in January.

Confirming the visit to ABC News Trump Jr. said “It’s important to show support” and that Navarro is in “good spirits” despite believing he’s been wrongly convicted. Navarro had argued in court that his refusal to testify to Congress was protected by executive privilege but the Supreme Court declined to take his case.

Navarro reported to prison in March after the Supreme Court denied a stay of his sentence. He had previously mentioned the case of fellow Trump campaign adviser Steve Bannon who was also convicted of contempt for ignoring a Jan. 6 Committee subpoena but allowed to remain free pending appeal.

Bannon’s conviction was recently upheld by a federal appeals court and he is set to serve his four-month sentence at an unspecified date. The cases highlight the legal consequences faced by former Trump associates in relation to the congressional investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.
