The US Justice Department sued former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, claiming he’s refused to provide the National Archives with emails retained on a private account he used while working for President Donald Trump.

“Mr. Navarro is wrongfully retaining presidential records that are the property of the United States, and which constitute part of the permanent historical record of the prior administration,” the Justice Department said in a complaint filed Wednesday in federal court in Washington, DC.

The US said Navarro, a former UC Irvine economics professor, used an account on the non-official service called “ProtonMail” to send and receive messages that it says constitute “Presidential records.”

Navarro didn’t copy each email that he sent or received on this non-official account to his official government email account and later failed to respond to official inquiries from the National Archives, according to the US.
