DOJ sues Peter Navarro

The Justice Department is suing Peter Navarro for emails from his time as former President Trump’s trade adviser, alleging that he used at least one nonadministration email account while working in the White House and was “wrongfully retaining” communications.

“While serving in the White House, Mr. Navarro used at least one non-official email account — an account hosted by the non-official service ProtonMail — to send and receive messages constituting Presidential records,” according to court documents filed on Wednesday.

“Mr. Navarro did not copy each email or message constituting Presidential records that was sent or received on his non-official account or accounts to his official government email account,” the court documents added.

The Justice Department said in the filing that nonofficial electronic accounts used to carry out official duties are considered presidential records and therefore must be forwarded to official accounts within 20 days of sending them.
