Peter Navarro asks Gorsuch to be released from prison pending appeal of conviction

Former Trump administration adviser Peter Navarro asked the Supreme Court on Tuesday to release him from prison pending appeal of his contempt of Congress conviction, asking for Justice Neil Gorsuch to weigh the request.

Navarro recently began his four-month prison sentence after being convicted of contempt of Congress charges last September for failing to comply with a Jan. 6 committee subpoena. Chief Justice John Roberts denied Navarro’s bid to remain out of prison pending appeal on March 18, and Navarro’s lawyer sent a letter to the high court asking for Gorsuch, a Trump appointee, to consider the latest request.
