(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- In his testimony before the House Committee on January 6, former Trump campaign attorney Alex Cannon claimed that Trump advisor Peter Navarro accused him of working for the “deep state” after he voiced skepticism on conspiracies involving the Dominion voting machines.
The second of six public sessions on the committee’s inquiry included Cannon’s evidence, which was broadcast on Monday.
Cannon claimed in his deposition that he discussed potential voter fraud with Navarro in mid-November, following the 2020 presidential election.
According to Cannon, he spoke to Navarro about how Dominion voting machines were alleged to switch votes from Trump to Biden. Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell—all supporters of Donald Trump—have consistently promoted this. In a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit, Dominion named all three.
Cannon says he remembers Navarro asking him about the Dominion machines and various other types of claims of voter fraud. Cannon recalls telling Navarro that he didn’t buy the Dominion charges because he believed the hand recount in Georgia would settle any problems with a technology issue and Dominion switching ballots.
The director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, Chris Krebs, had published a report claiming that the election was secure, and Cannon claimed to have relayed this to Navarro. After the election, Trump dismissed Krebs for refuting the allegations of electoral fraud.
Cannon said Navarro accused him of conspiring with Chris Krebs to sabotage the President and that he was a deep state agent. He didn’t accept another call from Mr. Navarro.
Cannon claimed that during a brief encounter with former Vice President Mike Pence, he expressed his “doubt” that the Trump campaign was “finding anything significant to influence the results of the election.” He said that Pence thanked him.
After consistently refusing to cooperate with the House investigation into the violence on January 6, Navarro was indicted for contempt of Congress in June. He says that the FBI treated him like an Al Qaeda terrorist during the brief time he was in jail.
