Editor’s note: After three years and millions of dollars expended, former AG Barr’s special prosecutor expanded a mysterious review into origin of Russia investigation, and has been dealt the first courtroom blow. But John Durham’s three-year-long probe has not uncovered explosive evidence of wrongdoing by the FBI. Instead, in this case, “the FBI was cast as a victim.”
“Former Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro said he has been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury later this week and turn over documents related to the Jan. 6 riot, including “any communications with formal President Trump and/or his counsel or representative.”
“Navarro made the claim in a draft copy of a lawsuit he’s planning to file this week against the House committee investigating the attack on the U.S. Capitol. The suit, which Navarro shared with NBC News, says the committee’s own subpoena to him is “unlawful and unenforceable” and should be thrown out by a judge.
“The House voted to refer Navarro to the Department of Justice on a criminal contempt of Congress charge last month after he snubbed the House committee’s subpoena for testimony and documents.
“In his 88-page draft lawsuit, first reported by The New York Times, Navarro said that last week “two FBI special agents banged loudly on my door in the early morning hours to present me with a fruit of the poisonous tree grand jury subpoena” commanding that he testify before and hand documents over to a grand jury on Thursday.”
– This Memorial Day story has been posted annually since May 28, 2007: This weekend is our Memorial Day holiday when America pauses to honor those that have given their lives in service to their country. The Yelm Community Blog host appreciates and honors all of those who have served to defend, protect, and preserve our country from outside invaders.
“Memorial Day was first called Decoration Day to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it expanded to include those who died in any war or military action,” quoting Wikipedia.
The wars have left their mark on this area, as we are reminded of one of the first from this area to give the ultimate sacrifice in the Iraq War, Rainier’s Justin Norton, who was killed in June 2006:
