Trump Advisor Will Spend 4 Months In Prison For Doing Exactly What Hunter Biden Did

A key advisor to former President Donald Trump was sentenced Thursday to serve four months in prison for doing exactly what President Joe Biden’s son Hunter did just a few weeks ago.

Peter Navarro, who advised Trump on matters of trade and manufacturing, was subpoenaed to appear before the January 6th Committee for a deposition in March of 2022 and was ordered to provide documents to the committee one month prior — neither of which he did.

The Justice Department charged Navarro as a private citizen several months later, on June 2, 2022.

In addition to his four-month sentence, Navarro was ordered to pay a fine of $9,500 — reduced by U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta from the six months and $200,000 the Justice Department had requested. As the DOJ noted in the request, every individual count of contempt of Congress can carry 30 days to one year in jail, and a fine of up to $100,000.

A similar situation — absent the Justice Department taking action — has played out with President Biden’s embattled son in recent weeks.

Hunter Biden defied a subpoena to appear before the House Oversight Committee for a closed-door deposition. Instead, the younger Biden claimed repeatedly that he would testify publicly and even staged a press conference on the opposite side of the Capitol from where he had been ordered to appear.

Kimberly Guilfoyle summed up the comparison in a post on X, saying, “What an absolute disgrace. Peter Navarro sentenced to prison for refusing to play along with the Democrats’ illegitimate sham J6 circus While Hunter Biden defies a subpoena, mocks the entire process, and gets to stroll through Capitol Hill. Justice is dead.”

Hunter Biden sentenced to 4 months for defying subpoena? … Oh wait, that’s Peter Navarro‘s sentence,” another added.

Republicans moved to hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress, but he crashed the hearing, once again declaring that he would only volunteer to testify in public. The president’s son has since reportedly agreed to sit for a private deposition at the end of February.
