The Democratic-led House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol has subpoenaed former Trump White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, after he documented his own attempts to delay the certification of the 2020 election results in a memoir about this time in the Trump administration.
“Mr. Navarro appears to have information directly relevant to the Select Committee’s investigation into the causes of the January 6th attack on the Capitol,” select panel Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said in a statement. “He hasn’t been shy about his role in efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election and has even discussed the former President’s support for those plans.”
Like Trump allies subpoenaed before him, Navarro in a statement called the panel’s investigation a “witch hunt.” Navarro also attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, several Republicans, including former Vice President Mike Pence, and the committee, calling them “terrorists.”
