The House voted Wednesday to hold Peter Navarro and Dan Scavino, aides to former President Donald Trump, in contempt for defying subpoenas in the investigation of the Capitol attack and urged the Justice Department to charge them criminally.

“Dan Scavino and Peter Navarro must be held accountable for the abuse of the public trust and defiance of the law,” said the committee chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss. “They are in contempt of Congress, which is a crime.”

Rep.
