“Do You Realize You Are Describing a Coup?” Ex-Trump Official Defends Plan to Overturn Election

HeadlineJan 05, 2022

Former Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro was interviewed on MSNBC Tuesday by Ari Melber. Navarro outlined his support last year for what he called the “Green Bay Sweep” — a plan to overturn the election results in six states.

Peter Navarro: “We had over a hundred congressmen and senators on Capitol Hill ready to implement the sweep. The sweep was simply that. We were going to challenge the results of the election in the six battleground states. They were Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, Nevada.”

Ari Melber: “Do you realize you are describing a coup?”

Peter Navarro: “No. I totally reject many of your premises there.”
