DOJ Sues Trump Ally Peter Navarro Over Alleged Unofficial Email Account


NEW YORK (TBEN) — The Justice Department on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against Peter Navarro, alleging that the former adviser to Donald Trump used an unofficial email account while he worked at the White House and falsely stored presidential records.

In the civil cases, it is alleged that by using the unofficial email account, Navarro failed to turn over the presidential records to the National Archives and Records Administration.

The Justice Department is asking a federal judge for an injunction “authorizing the recovery of all presidential records in Mr. Navarro’s possession, custody and/or control.” The suit also seeks unspecified damages.

“Mr. Navarro falsely preserves presidential records owned by the United States and part of the permanent historical records of the previous administration,” the indictment said.

A lawyer representing Navarro in the criminal case did not immediately respond to a message asking for comment on the civil case.
