Former Donald Trump White House adviser Peter Navarro pleaded not guilty to two counts of criminal contempt of Congress charges after he refused to comply with a subpoena issued by the House Jan. 6 committee, claiming executive privilege.

Navarro entered the plea at a hearing Friday. The Department of Justice unsealed an indictment against him June 3.

The committee, which is investigating the January 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters seeking to stop congressional certification of the 2020 election, issued the subpoena in February 2022.

The subpoena sought a deposition and documents from Navarro, but Navarro refused, according to the indictment. He faces two counts, each of which could mean between 30 days and a year of jail time and a fine of up to $100,000 if he is convicted, according to the DOJ.

A trial of Navarro will begin Nov. 17, U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta decided Friday. Government prosecutors asked for the earliest trial date possible, while Navarro’s defense attorneys said they would be fine with pushing the trial well into 2023.

The department has previously indicted former Trump adviser Stephen K. Bannon for contempt of Congress, though it has not done the same for former Trump aide Dan Scavino or former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, despite referrals from the House of Representatives.
