White House bows out of first House Judiciary impeachment hearing, whining about being 'partisan'

2 min read

While the WH left open the possibility of participating in other House Judiciary committee hearings, their continued whinging about POTUS* being denied due process continue to ring hollow. Meanwhile the GOP committee membership is expected to continue to clown the proceedings. New attempts to delay the proceedings include trying to call Adam Schiff as a witness without calling Devin Nunes.

The White House informed House Democrats on Sunday that it will not participate in the Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment hearing, excoriating Democrats’ impeachment inquiry as a “baseless” and “partisan” exercise in scathing five-page letter to the panel’s chairman.

[…]

Jerry Nadler had asked Trump to indicate by Sunday whether the president himself or a White House attorney would attend Wednesday’s hearing, an offer that Democrats said was an attempt to afford due process to Trump as he faces a likely impeachment vote before the end of the month.

Nadler has also asked Trump to reveal by the end of the week whether he intends to participate in any aspect of the Judiciary Committee’s impeachment proceedings, which are expected to continue into the following week. Notably, Cipollone left open the possibility that the White House would participate in future hearings.

[…]

The House Intelligence Committee is expected to vote Tuesday evening to formally approve its report recommending that Trump be removed from office over allegations that he abused the power of his presidency to pressure a foreign leader to investigate his political rivals. The allegation is expected to form the core of any impeachment articles ultimately considered by the House.

Darn that whistle blower identifying all those impeachable offenses that were supported by credible, more closely associated fact-witnesses. And even the GOP witnesses supported the allegations, darn it.
