Former Trump White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Wednesday lost a too-clever-by-half attempt to get out of prison early.

Last week, Navarro filed an emergency motion for resentencing with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, requesting an additional 30-day sentence of supervised release on top of the 120-day prison sentence he is currently serving for contempt of Congress.

U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta described the logic behind the “unusual request” in a 3-page order denying the request as off-base.

“He asks the court to add 30 days of supervised release to his original sentence,” the court’s order reads, “so that he can secure early release based on time credits earned under the First Step Act through his participation in prison programming.”
