At a glance

  • A judge postponed the contempt of Congress trial of former Trump adviser Peter Navarro on Thursday due to a Jan. 6 seditious conspiracy trial taking precedence over the smaller-scale Navarro case.
  • Navarro, who was set for trial next week, will now come before U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta on Jan. 11, 2023.
  • The former Trump aide was indicted this summer on two counts of ignoring a subpoena from the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, one of which was for testimony and the other for his documents.
