The FBI arrested Trump adviser Peter Navarro only one day after he said he would lead the push to impeach Joe Biden if Republicans win the November elections.
Former Hillary Clinton lawyer Michael Sussman was acquitted by a jury of Hillary Clinton donors last week, but Navarro was arrested by the FBI.

This is stuff from a third-world country or a banana republic.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) arrested former White House economic adviser Peter Navarro on Friday, acting on a referral from the Democrat-run House that held him in contempt for refusing to testify at the partisan January 6 Committee.
The arrest came one day after Navarro appeared on left-wing MSNBC to promise that he would lead efforts to promote the impeachment of President Joe Biden if Republicans take Congress in the midterm elections, which they are expected to do.
Navarro was held in contempt by Congress in March, along with former White House communications aide Dan Scavino, who was accused of refusing to testify based on false claims by the committee that he had not tried to cooperate…
Navarro is among several witnesses who have sued the committee in federal court, claiming that it is violating the separation of powers by performing a law enforcement function, and that it has violated the terms of its own enabling resolution.

When a Republican-led Congress found then-Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for refusing to hand over documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious, which led to the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry indirectly, and when Congress found former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner in contempt for refusing to testify about her agency's effort to target conservative groups, the DOJ ignored the referrals. Yet, they jump at the chance to get Peter Navarro.
After leading the attempt to replace NAFTA with the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement and pressing for tariffs on China as a geopolitical opponent, Navarro was regarded one of President Trump's most successful advisers.
