Former Trump White House aide Peter Navarro was ordered to report to prison on March 19 to start his four-month sentence after he was convicted on two counts of congressional contempt. 

Navarro's conviction came after he defied a subpoena from the now-dissolved House select committee that investigated the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riot.

The former Trump advisor has been attempting to persuade a federal appeals court to stay, or pause, his sentence as he appeals his conviction.

"Dr. Navarro has now been ordered to report to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons, FCI Miami, on or before 2:00PM EDT on March 19, 2024," Navarro's attorney stated in a legal filing late Sunday, according to Politico.

"Accordingly, Dr. Navarro respectfully reiterates his request for an administrative stay," the attorney wrote. "Should this Court deny Dr. Navarro’s motion, he respectfully requests an administrative stay so as to permit the Supreme Court review of this Court’s denial."
