He faces two contempt charges: one for failing to file documents requested by the panel and the second for failing to appear before House investigators.
Navarro said he could not co-operate because former President Donald Trump insisted on executive power in the matter. The panel opposed those arguments, for example, as he had already written in great detail in his book several topics he would like to discuss with him.
