Peter Navarro sentenced to 4 months in prison


WASHINGTON — Former Trump White House adviser Peter Navarro was sentenced to four months in prison Thursday for criminal contempt of Congress, with a federal judge telling him he was "not a victim" or a target of political persecution, as much as he may have proclaimed otherwise.

Navarro was convicted in September on two counts for refusing to testify and provide documents to the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, which issued its report and dissolved in late 2022 after Republicans won control of the House.

The charge carried a mandatory minimum sentence of a month in prison. Federal prosecutors had sought six months for Navarro, saying he, “like the rioters at the Capitol, put politics, not country, first, and stonewalled Congress’s investigation.”

Darn it, after 4 years of outwitting it, Covid caught up with me.

Monday my sister came over to watch college football with us. Around 3 pm she started getting chills and went home. She has a walker and I always help her by taking it out and putting it bank in her car. It took me a few minutes to realize I needed to wash my hands and wipe down the end table she used. 26 hours later, I had the same symptoms. At first I thought it was the flu. We (dear husband, sister and I) are all vaxed and boosted. The minute something becomes available I make an appointment for all of us. This morning I took a Covid test, it was positive. Thankfully, husband who has serious health issues tested negative and has no symptoms. My sister and I have chills, runny nose, fever, and stuffed nose. I called my primary care Dr’s office he and the nurse practitioner are out until Monday. I made an online appointment with CVS Minute Clinic for late this afternoon. Meanwhile I was feeling so crappy I signed up for a telescope call. One time typically call you 2 hours after the credit card clears. 3.5 hours later it was time for my Clinic live appointment. Amazingly I was seen on time and efficiently. After reviewing my symptoms and meds, looking in my ears, nose and throat, and taking my BP and listening to my heart he gave me the prescription and told be to pick it up in the drive through. In about 1.25 hours all told, I was home and took my first dose. Oddly, it seemed to make me feel better to move around. Symptoms been going in waves all day from medium severity to medium low severity. Just the stopped up nose driving me crazier. 😉

All tips are welcome!
