Navarro won't testify on vaccine whistleblower complaint

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro (pictured) declined to testify in front of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee in relation to whistleblower complaint authored by the former head of the Department of Health's Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority.

"The White House is declining the invitation for Peter Navarro to testify based on the longstanding precedent, followed by administrations of both political parties, rooted in clearly established constitutional doctrines, and supported by the Department of Justice, that senior advisors to the President generally do not testify before Congress," the statement read.

Rick Bright, who was the director of the agency responsible for the procurement and development of vaccines and other treatments, claimed in his complaint contracts have gone to "companies with political connections to the administration."
