White House tells Democrats it won't cooperate in impeachment hearings

White House letter at link.

The White House on Friday signaled it will not participate in future impeachment proceedings in the House and called on House Democrats to end their impeachment inquiry.

White House counsel Pat Cipollone, responding to a 5 p.m. deadline set by Democrats, wrote in a letter to the Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee that it would be a “reckless abuse of power” for House Democrats to adopt articles of impeachment and “would constitute the most unjust, highly partisan, and unconstitutional attempt at impeachment in our Nation's history.”

“House Democrats have wasted enough of America's time with this charade,” Cipollone wrote in a one-page letter to Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.).

Can Mr. Nadler stay awake long enough to read all of the letter?

Good.

Now it's time for the DOJ to PROSECUTE Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler and their ilk for ABUSE OF POWER.

I thought the legislative branch, namely the House of REPRESENTATIVES is supposed to work WITH the President not AGAINST the President. Hell, charge them all with TREASON and stop this soft Civil War!

The Dems need to bring a resolution forward to continue to fund the government. TRUMP should say; 1) Defence appropriations first 2) CMA second 3) DACA third 4) Wall funding fourth 5) Impeachment in March. Or the government will be shut down, I sign nothing.

“unconstitutional attempt at impeachment”

Sounds like a synonym for treason.

Is there any doubt Donald Trump is a genius at this sort of thing? Clearly this impeachment circus is revealing to the American public what a bunch of ass-clowns the Democrats are, and is no longer working in their favor.

Leave it to DJT to figure out the one way to make sure the Democrats won’t drop it no matter what! It reminds me of Kirk taunting Kahn in Star Trek 2. “I’m laughing at the superior intellect!”

This shi! could stop immediately if President Trump and the Republicans want to. The President could jack Horowitz and Durhams butts and stop the delay. Release now and indict those criminal Democrats now. He won’t!!! And I believe he never will while America is being destroyed. As far as the cry babies Republicans both in the Senate and the House are as useless as crap. The Democrats know how to fight, our side just talks, talks, talks, whine, whine, whine, and are cowards to legally act.

Analogous to an old-time crooked judge adding a charge of not bringing a rope to an innocent man already sentenced to die by hanging.

Yep, Schiffty Schiftt has no clue about what’s good for the country but President Trump certainly does.
