Trump Jr. says Navarro in ‘good spirits’ after prison visit

Donald Trump, Jr. said Peter Navarro is in “good spirits” after visiting him at a Miami federal prison, ABC News reported on Monday.

Navarro was sentenced to four months in prison in January after being found guilty of two counts of contempt of Congress. The former Trump campaign advisor ignored a subpoena issued by the House Jan. 6 Committee.

Trump, Jr. told ABC News that it’s “important to show support” for Navarro, confirming his visit, adding that he believes Navarro is wrongly convicted.

Navarro repeatedly argued against his conviction in court, claiming that his refusal to testify to Congress was protected by executive privilege. The Supreme Court declined to take his case late last month. He reported to prison in March. 

Fellow Trump campaign advisor Steve Bannon, who also ignored a subpoena from the committee, was similarly convicted of contempt. His conviction was upheld by a federal appeals court on Friday.

Bannon was also sentenced to four months in prison, but has not yet served the sentence, pending appeal.
