White House won't participate in first Judiciary impeachment hearing
The Hill ^ | 12 01 2019 | Brett Samuels

Posted on 12/01/2019 4:35:39 PM PST by yesthatjallen

The White House on Sunday informed the House Judiciary Committee it will not participate in Wednesday's impeachment inquiry hearing but did not rule out taking part in future hearings.

"[W]e cannot fairly be expected to participate in a hearing while the witnesses are yet to be named and while it remains unclear whether theJudiciary Committee will afford the President a fair process through additional hearings," White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.).

"More importantly, an invitation to an academic discussion with law professors does not begin to provide the President with any semblance of a fair process," Cipollone wrote. "Accordingly, under the current circumstances, we do not intend to participate in your Wednesday hearing."

Good. Those flag-burning, gun-grabbing babykillers don’t deserve ANY help.

The WH is right...NEVER cooperate with a Kangaroo Court as it goes through its travesty .. you can only add a perceived degree of false legitimacy to it.

What are the Las Vegas odds-makers saying about the chances of this getting to the Senate? Anybody know?

The Executive Branck is CO-Equal i power with Congress.

And our president , by not participating is fundamentally denying that they have jurisdiction to impeach him.

Thats true, given that the outcome was pre-determined even before any process began.

Kudos to President Trump.He is not going to give them any boost in their viewer ratings by being represented there.

In the Senate, it will be an entirely different matter..

It’s like I’m talking to my 21 year old son. The literalness of the interpretation is amazing. Come on keep up. All of us here have a President Trump’s back 63 million people in this country have his back probably more.

Submit articles and vote on them and maybe, just maybe...... Otherwise it’s a fact finding fiasco.

He's a snot nosed kid, and anything he has to say about President Trump is worthless as far as I am concerned.

So the circle jerk is still in need of a pivot man. Not sorry that we’re not giving them one.

The enemy is digging a big, deep hole, don't tell them to stop. Nothing there, moving on. Bu participating in this kangaroo court, President Trump would make an illegal witch hunt, legal. No way, it. By not participating he send the message it is phony. No one will watch it let alone say it is legal.

Perfectly worded post on this subject. Cannot possibly be improved on.
