One of the crazier Trump-MAGA sycophants has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury

It’s good news he’s been summoned to testify under oath (assuming he’s not lying — again) but even better news that he plans to represent himself in his bid to quash the subpoena. Which, as any good trial attorney can tell you, is a sign that he’s stupid, crazy or both:

Peter Navarro, who as a White House adviser to President Donald J. Trump worked to keep Mr. Trump in office after his defeat in the 2020 election, disclosed on Monday that he has been summoned to testify on Thursday to a federal grand jury and to provide prosecutors with any records he has related to the attack on the Capitol last year, including “any communications” with Mr. Trump.

The subpoena to Mr. Navarro — which he said the F.B.I. served at his house last week — seeks his testimony about materials related to the buildup to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, and signals that the Justice Department investigation may be progressing to include activities of people in the White House.

Mr. Navarro revealed the existence of the subpoena in a draft of a lawsuit he said he is preparing to file against the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Matthew M. Graves, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.

Mr. Navarro, who plans to represent himself in the suit, is hoping to persuade a federal judge to block the subpoena, which he calls the “fruit of the poisonous tree.”

Navarro is going to say/do something stupid because he just can’t help himself due to his astronomically high self-regard.
