White House Declines to Participate in Judiciary Committee’s Impeachment Hearing

December 3, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

The White House has announced that the Trump administration will not participate in the upcoming Judiciary Committee hearings on impeachment.

According to The Hill:

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.

The administration in a five-page letter to the committee ripped the process as “highly partisan” and accused the panel’s Democratic chairman of providing little information about Wednesday’s hearing.

“We cannot fairly be expected to participate in a hearing while the witnesses are yet to be named and while it remains unclear whether the Judiciary Committee will afford the President a fair process through additional hearings,” White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold 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.”

The committee will begin the impeachment hearing on Wednesday and from the title of the hearing, “The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment” it will surely be interesting.

    I must concur with The White House assessment, “not to participate”. The White House has more important things to do!

    JD: THE DECISION BY WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL NOT TO PARTICIPATE SEEMS BEFITTING THE DISGRACEFUL CLOWN ACT PREPARING TO DEBUT ON THE CONGRESSIONAL STAGE.
    A JURY OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
    OBSERVING THIS PLANNED SHAM WOULD
    CONCLUDE AT THE CLOSE OF THIS
    CHARADE THAT THERE WERE A NUMBER OF
    CRITICAL ELEMENTS MISSING IN THIS
    SILLY PLAY.
    WHAT DEMRATS HAVE IN STORE FOR THIS EVENT IS A FOUL DISPLAY OF IGNORANCE WHICH EVEN THIS NOVICE GROUP OF OBSERVERS WOULD VIEW AS A HORROR OF AN EMBARRASMENT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
    AND THE LEADERS OF OTHER NATIONS WILL THINK TO THEMSELVES “HOW CAN AMERICANS ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEY HAVE ACHIEVED GREATNESS, WITH THIS GROUP OF IDIOTS IN A MAJORITY IN CONGRESS ?” DEMRATS WILL FALL FLAT ON THEIR FACES
    BECAUSE OF THEIR BEHAVIOR.
    THEY ARE CERTAINLY CONFUSED AND DELUSIONAL IN NOT RECOGNIZING THAT OUR DONALD TRUMP IS THE GREATEST ASSET
    AMERICA HAS AT THIS POINT IN OUR HISTORY.
