Fresh from being ambushed at the airport by the FBI and arrested, shackled and frog-marched for questioning, Peter Navarro emerged on the front steps of the E. Barrett Prettyman Courthouse in Washington DC and addressed the media.
“This was a pre-emptive strike by the Justice Department to prevent my civil suit from going forward and shame on them,” he said.
Later that day, the DOJ declined to charge former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and former aide, Dan Scavino for contempt of Congress for their defiance of subpoenas in the January 6 investigation.

The FBI on Friday arrested Trump’s advisor Dr. Peter Navarro at a DC-area airport.
Navarro was on his way to Nashville when the Stasi took him into custody in a surprise ambush.
A federal grand jury on Friday indicted Peter Navarro for contempt of Congress after he refused to cooperate with Liz Cheney’s unconstitutional January 6 Committee.
According to CNN, Navarro faces two contempt counts: one for his failure to produce documents demanded by the committee and the other for failing to show up for subpoenaed testimony before House investigators.
Dr. Navarro spoke to reporters outside of the courthouse on Friday afternoon.
Navarro blasted Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, the two RINOs on Pelosi’s J-6 panel.
“These are unenforceable, unlawful subpoenas and that committee should never have been formed. I … also blame Kevin McCarthy. He knew right at the outset that they were breaking the rules and he didn’t stand up right then..’ Navarro said.
Dr. Navarro said his ambush arrest was a preemptive strike to prevent his civil suit against Nancy Pelosi from moving forward.
The FBI didn’t call Navarro and ask him to turn himself in, rather, they chose to ambush him at a DC-area airport and frog march him to the courthouse.
“They intercepted me gettin’ on the plane and then they put me in handcuffs, they bring me here. They put me in leg irons. They stick me in a cell,” Navarro said.
