Peter Navarro, that of President Trump former trade adviser, was subpoenaed Thursday by the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus crisis.

Rep. Jim Clyburn, DS.C., who chairs the subcommittee, claimed in a memo that Navarro was not cooperating with lawmakers’ requests and that he was more concerned about politics and challenging the 2020 presidential election than the COVID-19 pandemic , according to De Heuvel.

“Given his pivotal role in the pandemic response, the importance of the Select Subcommittee’s investigation and his continued refusal to voluntarily cooperate, this subpoena is necessary,” Clyburn wrote.

The subpoena demands that Navarro submit documents to the panel by December 8 and appear before the subcommittee before December 15 for impeachment.

Navarro is the second person to be subpoenaed by the subcommittee since its inception in April 2020. The first was Steven Hatfill, a virologist and former adviser to Navarro.

Navarro denounced the subcommittee’s investigation and their subpoena as a “witch hunt,” told The Washington Post, “I will be delivering a case of my new book ‘In Trump Time’ to committee members, which explains why this is indeed a witch hunt. . .”
