The FBI arrested Trump’s advisor, Dr. Peter Navarro, at a DC-area airport. He went to Nashville when the Stasi took him into custody in a surprise ambush.
Reports say that Navarro told the judge that he didn’t need a lawyer because he wanted to represent himself.

A federal grand jury has indicted former Trump White House adviser Peter Navarro for contempt of Congress after he refused to cooperate in the House January 6 committee’s investigation.
During a court appearance in Washington, DC, on Friday, Navarro said that he still wants to represent himself without a lawyer and accused prosecutors of using “hardball” tactics by arresting him at an airport and not allowing him to make a phone call.
Navarro said he was arrested at a DC-area airport Friday on his way to Nashville.
At Friday’s court appearance, Judge Zia Faruqui expressed concern about allowing Navarro to represent himself. “I think it’s important that you have counsel,” the judge told him.
Navarro said he was OK with the judge appointing counsel “for today” and that he sent prosecutors an email with an attorney contact as they work this out. Navarro, who has a Ph.D in economics, is not an attorney.
“The arraignment should be postponed for a number of reasons,” Navarro added, requesting that his civil lawsuit against the House January 6 committee go forward before any criminal proceedings.
He talked to the reporters outside the courthouse this Friday.

One grand jury indicted Navaro for contempt of Congress once he stated he didn’t want to cooperate with Liz Cheney’s unconstitutional January 6 committee:
At the beginning of this year, the abusive January 6 panel voted to advance contempt charges against Trump’s helpers, Dan Scavino and Peter Navaro.
They didn’t provide documents to the house panel and refused to show up for their depositions.
The House of Representatives voted to refer Navarro to the Justice Department for not complying with the J-6 panel’s subpoena.
CNN stated Navaro faced two contempt counts: one for the failure to produce documents asked by the committee and for failing to show up for subpoenaed testimony before House investigators.
