John Dean is Wondering Why the DOJ Hasn’t Arrested Peter Navarro Yet

John Dean knows a thing or two about politicians and their aides acting badly. Dean, of course, was Richard Nixon’s White House Counsel during the Watergate scandal.

Peter Navarro was one of Donald Trump’s key advisers. And it was recently revealed that the former Assistant to the President tried to delay the electoral count from being conducted on January 6th.

The Washington Post’s Greg Sargeant wrote, “While the violence unfolded, Trump and Rudy pressed at least one GOP senator to try to delay the electoral count. It’s clear the committee is looking at whether the attack became key to securing that delay. Recall Pence refused to be evacuated.”

Replying to Sargeant’s article, law professor Lawrence Tribe wrote, “So this was both (1) seditious conspiracy (18 USC 2384) and (2) conspiracy corruptly to obstruct and impede an official proceeding (18 USC 1512(c)(2)), each a very serious federal felony — but evidently nothing to see here, Mr. Attorney General?”

And Dean responded to Tribe’s question, “In his new book, former Trump aide Peter Navarro appears to be bragging that he got away with seditious conspiracy and conspiracy to obstruct and impede Congress, not to mention several other serious crimes. Apparently, the Department of Justice could care less? I don’t get it!”
