Peter Navarro says Mike Pence is ‘guilty of treason’… against Donald Trump

Former Trump White House official Peter Navarro, who helped devise a plan to overthrow the 2020 presidential election, declared Monday that former Vice President Mike Pence is “guilty of treason, at least to President Trump and perhaps to this country.” “.

Navarro, who has been criminally charged for ignoring a Jan. 6 subpoena from Congress to testify about his involvement, tried unsuccessfully to delay his trial last month, claiming his book tour will take up too much time. The Trump administration’s trade adviser, a frequent, talkative guest on news channels, nonetheless managed to do some promotional work for him on Monday on the friendly airwaves the balanceEric Bolling’s Newsmax show.

Recalling the days leading up to Jan. 6, Navarro told Bolling he remembered an aide telling him Pence wanted to speak to him on the phone.

“I pick up the line and it’s crickets. And what happened, I believe, was that his Koch Brother chief of staff, Marc Short, intercepted the call [and] Pence resigned,” Navarro said.

“And the reason I believe Pence is guilty of treason, at least to President Trump and perhaps to this country,” he claimed, “is that he acted on the basis of a flawed legal opinion fabricated by his own general counsel.” what he didn’t share, Eric, with either the President or the President’s Legal Counsel at the White House.”

Bolling did not defend himself against this serious accusation, which carries the death penalty, but only asked his guest for clarification. “So, lack of exercise – lack of action – is what you call treacherous activity by Pence?” asked Bolling. “Not necessarily what he did, but that he had the opportunity to do something but he didn’t?”

Navarro then reiterated that Pence had a “duty” to inform the president and his legal team of what Navarro called a “flawed” legal opinion: that Pence had no authority to prevent Biden from being certified as the election winner. Navarro argued that Pence did so – a claim legal experts have dismissed.

Pence, Navarro complained, had effectively “stabbed a knife in the back” of Trump by not sticking to his scheme. Peter Navarro says Mike Pence is ‘guilty of treason’… against Donald Trump
