A federal judge rejected former Trump White House aide Peter Navarro’s push to obtain records that he claims might show he’s being unfairly prosecuted for failing to respond to House Jan. 6 committee subpoenas.

Navarro failed to provide any evidence that would help back up his claim of selective prosecution, US District Judge Amit Mehta said Monday in denying his request for documents.
