The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol advanced a measure Monday to refer former Trump aides Peter Navarro and Dan Scavino to the Justice Department for criminal contempt of Congress charges.
The committee voted 9-0 to send the recommendation to the House. The panel consists of seven Democrats and two Republicans, who are participating without the approval of GOP leadership.
The panel’s vote paves the way for the House to vote on whether the pair should be referred to the Justice Department for a misdemeanor that carries up to a year in prison and fines up to $100,000.
Navarro, a trade adviser during the Trump administration, and Scavino, who served as White House deputy chief of staff, have defied subpoenas from the committee demanding they testify and turn over documents relevant to last year’s attack that disrupted the 2020 electoral vote count during a joint session of Congress.
