"It's a separate case from Navarro's indictment for contempt of Congress, which the Justice Department is also handling.

The Jan. 6 select committee subpoenaed him for documents and testimony in February, but he refused to comply with their summons, prompting the panel to ask the Justice Department to pursue charges against him.

Navarro has also acknowledged receiving a federal grand jury subpoena related to Jan. 6."

It all sounds very innocent to me.....

"absent a grant of immunity for the act of returning such documents,"

Innocent people act this way all the time.

One would think a 73-year old guy with a Ph.D from Harvard would be smart enough to keep himself out of jail. Navarro thinks he is so smart that he will beat the DOJ and will somehow be protected by Der Dotard, who has already forgotten his name and lost his phone number. Too clever by half? Nope--not clever enough, by a mile...

More from the cited article...

...Navarro, who worked for the White House during the entirety of Trump's presidency, had used "at least one non-official email account ... to send and receive messages constituting Presidential records," the Justice Department said in a court filing. Attorneys also accused him of "wrongfully retaining them" in violation of federal record-keeping laws, as Navarro did not copy the messages into an official government account, nor did he respond to the National Archivist's initial request for the emails....

@#4 ... One would think a 73-year old guy with a Ph.D from Harvard would be smart enough to keep himself out of jail. ...

That seemed to have been a problem for many in fmr Pres Trump's administration.

If it weren't for fmr Pres Trump's pardon power, many would still be in jail.
