Supreme Court denies Peter Navarro’s request for release from jail

The Supreme Court has denied former Trump adviser Peter Navarro’s request to avoid further prison time for contempt of Congress. Navarro tried an emergency request to stay free while challenging his conviction but Chief Justice John Roberts denied it. Navarro then resubmitted the request to Justice Neil Gorsuch, who referred it to the full court. The court denied the request without comment. Navarro’s attorneys argued he wasn’t a flight risk and raised significant legal questions. Two lower courts rejected similar appeals. Navarro was sentenced to four months in prison for failing to respond to congressional subpoenas related to the Capitol attack.
