Ex-Trump White House official Peter Navarro to go on trial in September in Jan. 6 contempt caseSource: Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Trump White House official Peter Navarro will stand trial in September on contempt of Congress charges filed after he refused to cooperate with a congressional investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta set a Sept. 5 trial date during a court appearance on Tuesday in Washington.
Navarro was charged last year with one contempt count for failing to appear for a deposition before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack and a second charge for failing to produce documents the committee requested. He has pleaded not guilty.
His attorneys declined to comment after Tuesday’s hearing.

Oath Keeper convicted of sedition in US Capitol attack sentenced to 4.5 years
WASHINGTON, June 1 (Reuters) - Far-right Oath Keepers militant group member Roberto Minuta was sentenced to four and a half years in prison on Thursday after he was convicted of seditious conspiracy and other crimes arising from the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol by then-President Donald Trump's supporters.
"You can feel a way about a government and about the way it's treating its citizens without resorting to violence," U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta said. "That is why you find yourself where you are today." Minuta's sentencing comes just one week after Mehta sentenced Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes to 18 years in prison following his November conviction for seditious conspiracy and other charges.
Rhodes received the longest prison term handed down to any of the 1,000-plus people charged in the attack that was intended to block Congress from certifying Democrat Joe Biden's election victory over Republican Trump. Mehta is due to sentence Minuta's co-defendant Edward Vallejo at 1:30 p.m. ET on Thursday.
Minuta, who provided a security detail to Trump ally Roger Stone during political rallies on the day of the attack, entered the Capitol with other Oath Keepers and, according to prosecutors, pushed past police officers while screaming obscene language.

That was for people who find ALL CAPS not annoying enough.
That's odd. I never ignore BL. Prolly my fault. I've been blasting paper at chucklefucks since 5 a.m. and everything is a bit hazy when I pull away from it for a break....Not this time and I ignore more chucklefucks than you do. It was just that BadLat had a bad quote with a bunch of HTML garbage since fixed.
