Federal Bureau Of Prisons Denies Rep. Gaetz’s Request To Interview Peter Navarro

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has accused the Federal Bureau of Prisons of denying his request to interview former Trump adviser Peter Navarro who is currently serving a four-month prison sentence for contempt of Congress.

Gaetz said that after five weeks of trying he was directly informed by Colette S. Peters Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons that his request to interview Navarro would be denied because the prisoner is “too notorious” to be interviewed by a member of Congress.

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last September Peters was harangued by both Republican and Democrat Senators over her lack of transparency and inability to answer even the most basic questions about operations.

The agency’s alleged lack of transparency appears to have continued unabated since last fall.

“I think there’s something else afoot here” Gaetz said. “Mr. Navarro I’m being told is not allowed to access his attorney.”

Gaetz said the actions of the Federal Bureau of Prisons vindicates Navarro’s claim that he is being held as a political prisoner.

“It is shameful what is being done to Peter Navarro based on a sham January 6 Committee and a sham indictment and a sham conviction that we ought to work to remediate immediately upon President Trump’s rightful and righteous return to office” Gaetz declared.
