Thursday proved to be an unfavorable day for former Donald Trump adviser Peter Navarro.
Navarro was initially found guilty of contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with a congressional investigation into the assault on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Subsequently, his post-conviction press conference was disrupted by the same woman who had confronted him with a sign reading “Trump Lost (And you know it!)” and whom he had unsuccessfully attempted to dismantle while she engaged in provocative behavior.
“Here we are with one of the most important separation of powers issues, and people will not let me speak,” Navarro began as the woman held up what appeared to be a new “Peter 4 Prison” sign behind him and said, “This is my First Amendment right.”
Navarro attempted to continue, but the woman interrupted to accuse a man positioned behind her of assault.
“That man just assaulted me. He stuck a flag pole up in between my legs! … I want to press charges,” she said, as can be seen in the video captured of the altercation.
America in crisis, freedom at risk. They won't even allow Former Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro (@RealPNavarro) to speak after he was convicted of contempt of Congress in DC moments ago. SAD. WATCH pic.twitter.com/3uvpSPEsf9

The responses on X, formerly known as Twitter, indicate that this scenario has the potential to become widely popular and widely distributed.
Sentencing set for January. Each charge carries a minimum of 30 days and a max of 12 months in prison. Can run concurrently.
Similar to Bannon, I expect he will get around 4 months.
He will appeal. It will buy him some more time before he has to serve his sentence, but…

@SatireAP depriving convicted Peter Navarro of his 1st A right?!?!? Didn't know she had governmental powers! Cool.
And no, Peter, you lost the opportunity to have a truthful conversation by being a prolific liar. Go directly to jail; Do not pass go #godirectlytojail #donotpassgo https://t.co/FNe8f05EpE
