Former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, who served under Donald Trump, has asked Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch to perform an end-run around Chief Justice John Roberts over an unsuccessful late March bid to stay out of federal prison.

As of Tuesday, Navarro is two weeks and a day into a four-month prison sentence for two counts of contempt of Congress. He was found guilty following a daylong trial in September 2023.

In January, U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta sentenced the 74-year-old economist to prison time and a fine of $9,500 for repeatedly stonewalling congressional investigators working for the House Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

A series of lower court and appellate court appeals followed throughout February and March. Results were consistent and clear: Navarro could, of course, appeal his conviction and sentence — but he had to start serving that sentence when the courts instructed.
