Trump Adviser Peter Navarro Complains His Legal Fees Will Bankrupt Him

Peter Navarro, Trump’s former trade adviser, who was recently indicted on contempt of Congress charges, is now complaining about his legal fees and lack of legal representation.

Navarro was recently arrested by the FBI at the airport attempting to board a flight.

“Leg irons/handcuffs, strip search, no food/water. Solitary confinement. Illegally denied access to my attorney. All for standing up for Trump/Constitution,” Navarro wrote on Twitter.

In an interview on Fox News, Navaro lamented that hiring a lawyer would be beyond his means, costing half a million dollars, or about ten percent of his estimated wealth.

Currently, Navarro plans to represent himself in court though the details are yet to be clear.

Navarro, worth an estimated $5-6 million, wrote in a letter to the judge that there was a conspiracy meant to break his will by the Jan. 6 Committee.

“Clearly, the prosecution’s strategy is to take advantage of an individual without adequate representation,” Navarro wrote. “My very freedom here is at stake and I ask for the court’s understanding that it will take time both to find the appropriate representation and time to develop an appropriate legal strategy.”

Navarro has been recently indicted with contempt of court charges after refusing to reveal information regarding Trump and the Capitol Riot.

In the past, Navarro has claimed executive privilege and refused to appear at court hearings and give any information regarding any information on January 6 or the days prior.

While Navarro claimed that the information requested was protected from investigators, Navarro has extensively written about the topics in his latest book.
