Jan. 6 riot panel subpoenas Trump aide Peter Navarro over alleged plot to delay certification of Biden’s win

The select House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot issued a subpoena seeking testimony and records from Peter Navarro, who had served as trade advisor to former President Donald Trump.

The committee said Wednesday that it wants to question Navarro because of his own published statements and independent reporting that indicated he was involved in efforts to delay Congress’ certification of the results of the 2020 election, which was won by President Joe Biden.

Those efforts to undo Biden’s win reportedly involved former top Trump White House aide Steve Bannon and others.

“In his book [“In Trump Time”], Mr. Navarro described this plan as the ‘Green Bay Sweep,’” the panel noted in a statement.

“In an interview, Mr. Navarro reportedly added that former President Trump was ‘on board with the strategy,’ as were ‘more than 100’ members of Congress. Mr. Navarro also released on his website a three-part report, dubbed the ‘Navarro Report,’ repeating many claims of purported fraud in the election that have been discredited in public reporting, by state officials, and courts,” the committee said.
