Trump Adviser Peter Navarro Has to Report to Prison, Federal Appeals Court Rules

NBC News

Peter Navarro, a Donald Trump adviser sentenced to four months in federal prison this year following his conviction for defying the Jan. 6 committee, must report to federal prison in Miami next week after a panel of federal appeals court judges rejected his bid to put his sentence on hold.

Three federal appeals court judges ruled that Navarro had “not shown that his appeal presents substantial questions of law or fact likely to result in reversal, a new trial, a sentence that does not include a term of imprisonment or a reduced sentence of imprisonment that is less than the amount of time already served plus the expected duration of the appeal process.”

Navarro’s lawyers previously indicated they would seek to take their case to the Supreme Court.
