by Ben Whedon


A jury on Thursday convicted former Trump advisor Peter Navarro of contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena from the Jan. 6 committee to testify and provide documents.

Navarro faced two misdemeanor counts, each of which carry a maximum of one year in prison, the Associated Press reported.

Navarro is the second Trump aide to be convicted of such charges after former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was convicted on two counts. Bannon has thus far stayed out of prison and is appealing his conviction.
