They have subpoenaed Steven K. Bannon who was not a member of the White House team at the time of January 6, 2020, regarding his knowledge of the fiasco. Mark Meadows, who was chief of staff at the time, not only is not cooperating and providing documents to the Jan 6 Committee, he is suing them himself. Trump’s former lawyer is not complying, and now, neither is Peter Navarro, an advisor to the Trump White House.
He is refusing to cooperate.
In a Saturday letter released by the panel, Chairman James Clyburn (D-SC) called Navarro’s refusal “indefensible” given the recent publication of the former aide’s book “In Trump Time: A Journal of America’s Plague Year,” which details conversations between Navarro and the 45th president about the outbreak.
“Your blanket refusal to comply with the subpoena in its entirety is improper. Courts have clearly held that White House advisers, such as yourself, cannot avoid compelled congressional process,” said Clyburn, who called the records and information Navarro has “critical” to the House investigation.
Navarro informed the subcommittee on Dec. 7 that he would not comply with the subpoena “based on former President Trump’s invocation of executive privilege with respect to the very topic covered by the Subpoena.”
Navarro cited a “direct order” from Trump on Nov. 20, in which he urged Navarro to “protect executive privilege and not let these unhinged Democrats discredit our great accomplishments.”
The bigger question is why do they want to know it, and why are they not subpoenaing other members of the task force who were not exactly in Trump’s inner circle.
