Navarro claims he was deprived of ‘appropriate legal counsel’ upon his arrest

Peter Navarro, a former top adviser to former President Donald Trump, was arrested last week on a contempt of Congress charge for not complying with a congressional subpoena with regard to the Jan. 6 House select committee.

According to the Washington Examiner, Navarro isn’t happy with how everything went down, and he’s especially upset at federal prosecutors for apparently telling a wildly different story than what actually happened. Navarro released a statement with his account of the arrest.

Navarro, in a court filing, said that he was deprived of “appropriate legal counsel.” He went on to explain how his arrest was botched by federal agents.

“As soon as the defendant asked to call for legal advice, the agents should have read from a written card the defendant his Miranda rights and done everything within their power to allow him a phone call to seek legal advice as he requested well prior to his court appearance,” Navarro’s court filing read.

It added: “They did not do so and thereby deprived the defendant of appropriate legal counsel.”

He also claims that during his arrest, as he described being put in “leg irons” and handcuffs, he wasn’t read his Miranda Rights.

Navarro also claimed that he was deprived of water and added that “no food was available” to him while he was detained.

Prosecutors in the case vehemently denied Navarro’s claims, telling a wildly different story of how the situation played out. Navarro has requested video footage, transcripts, and signed affidavits by some of the federal agents involved in the arrest in order to prove he’s being truthful.
