A federal grand jury has indicted former Trump administration adviser Peter Navarro on two counts of contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena issued by the House January 6 committee, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Friday.

“Navarro, 72, is charged with one contempt count involving his refusal to appear for a deposition and another involving his refusal to produce documents, despite a subpoena from the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol,” the DOJ said in a press release. “The indictment was returned yesterday and unsealed today. Navarro is to make his initial appearance this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.”

The DOJ explains that “on Feb. 9, 2022, the Select Committee issued a subpoena to Navarro. The subpoena required him to appear and produce documents to the Select Committee on Feb. 23, 2022, and to appear for a deposition before the Select Committee on March 2, 2022. According to the indictment, Navarro refused to appear to give testimony as required by subpoena and refused to produce documents in compliance with a subpoena.”

“In its subpoena, the Select Committee said it had reason to believe that Navarro had information relevant to its investigation. Navarro, formerly an advisor to the President on various trade and manufacturing policies, has been a private citizen since departing the White House on Jan. 20, 2021,” the DOJ added.

Navarro claims that executive privilege exempts him from appearing before the House January 6 committee because he worked at the Trump White House. He has also said that the committee is illegitimate and is suing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi due to the committee’s activity. According to Fox News, Navarro called any prosecution of him “domestic terrorism.”

    This is just more Democrat harassment of Trump administration officials. Now they’re moving their “monkey trial” hearing to ‘prime time television’ in an attempt to gin up support for the Democrat party in the November election. They’re hoping their shit sticks to the posts of this sham commission investigating the capital building trespassing the FBI warned Nancy Pelosi about on the days prior to January 6th due to FBI ‘plants’ that were also working hard to gin up support for an insurrection to bring down the Trump presidency in its final days.

    that’s DR Navarro & he is correct in his assertion of Executive privilege. My sincerest hope is that he is sucessful in his suit against the Wicked Witch of the West.

    Was it really necessary to shackle him? This is so reprehensible.

    Why don’t close the release of the videos? We have subpoenaed Democrats many at times and they’ve ignored Republican subpoena. Why is it always one-sided. I wouldn’t have released them either no matter what was in them. Americans are sick and tired of the double standard. Also the citizens being held in prison without due process for over a year due to January 6th is against their constitutional rights and against most true Americans. We’re tired of the Democrats dictating what we can and cannot do. Hell they’re not even following our laws. CNN MSNBC propaganda news don’t mention anything about the Democrats not obeying our laws especially our immigration laws. All the Democrats are doing is pushing communism in our country and it’s time America puts a stop to it. God bless Navarro.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
