DISTURBING! Former Trump Adviser Warns the FBI is Coming After Him to Stop Trump from Winning in 2024
Former Trump administration official Peter Navarro revealed a massive conspiracy by the FBI to prevent a second term from President Donald Trump.
Navarro, who was the White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy under Trump, was arrested late last week after refusing to comply with a subpoena issued to him by the House select committee ostensibly investigating the supposed Capitol “riot” on January 6.
“This committee is really a kangaroo court,” Navarro said during an interview with Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
“It’s set to hold primetime hearings tonight for the sole purpose of trying to build some kind of criminal case against Donald Trump to prevent him from running for president in 2024, an election he would certainly win based on the Biden regime’s performance.”
Navarro contended that some of the information being requested by the Democrat-led committee is protected by executive privilege given his former role as a presidential advisor in the Trump administration.
He said President Joe Biden directed him to comply with the subpoena and testify before the select committee via letter.
“The committee came at me with their full force,” Navarro stated. “I’m in an untenable situation. I don’t have the power to waive the [executive] privilege. So, what did they do? This is the tragedy here in this country. … They colluded passively or explicitly with Joe Biden and the White House, who writes me a letter saying, ‘You don’t have immunity, and you’re not covered by privilege,’ meaning that Biden was effectively attempting to strip me of testimonial immunity and President Trump of his right to executive privilege.”
He added, “You can’t do that. If we get into a situation where an incumbent can come in and strip his predecessor willy-nilly of his executive privilege anytime he wants — under the false flag of some national security issue — then the privilege won’t exist.”
The “key legal point” regarding his refusal to comply with the subpoena is that executive privilege “is not my privilege to waive.” He continued, “I have a duty to abide by the privilege.”
The arrest of Navarro was made more questionable by the fact that it came just one day after he appeared on left-wing MSNBC to promise that he would lead efforts to impeach President Joe Biden if Republicans retake the majority in Congress in the midterm elections.
Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz warned that Navarro’s arrest could have a serious impact on American democracy.
Dershowitz told Newsmax TV’s “The Count” Navarro’s indictment was a “real scandal” given no judicial order was given for Navarro to testify that resolved his claim of executive privilege.
If it stands, Dershowitz said Republicans could use it in the same way their Democrat counterparts have used it against Biden administration officials.
“He has invoked a privilege,” Dershowitz explained. “It’s as if somebody was called to testify about what he told his priest or his doctor or his lawyer, and he invokes the privilege and immediately gets indicted, instead of the government going before a court and the judge rules whether or not the privilege applies. If you rule the privilege doesn’t apply and order him to testify, then he can be held in contempt.”
“But you cannot constitutionally be held in contempt of Congress without a judicial order,” he continued.
“And if the shoe was on the other foot, and it will be on the other foot if the Republicans gain control of Congress or the Senate, they will use this precedent and go after Biden administration officials and indict them if they refused to disclose information. This is dangerous to democracy, dangerous through the rule of law, and dangerous to the concept of privilege, whether it be a priest privilege or a doctor, privileged lawyer privilege or executive privilege — an extremely dangerous case. And I’m shocked that the Justice Department brought it without there being a judicial determination that he was compelled to testify.”
