Trump Demands Vote As White House Rejects Democrats’ “Constitutionally Invalid” Impeachment ‘Inquiry’, by Tyler Durden

President Trump wants the same rights in the House of Representatives’ impeachment proceedings as those guaranteed to every criminal defendant in the land. The full text of White House Counsel Pat Cipollone’s letter to the House of Representatives’ leadership is worth the read. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

The White House has implicitly moved to force Speaker Pelosi’s hand to a formal vote by confirming in a letter that President Donald Trump and his administration won’t participate in the House impeachment inquiry, calling it unconstitutional and invalid, and framing it as an effort to “overturn the results of the 2016 election.”

White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote in the letter (full letter below) that:

“You have designed and implemented your inquiry in a manner that violates fundamental fairness and constitutionally mandated due process.”

While Pelosi claims that House committees have full authority to investigate, The White House disagrees, refusing to participate in any hearings or respond to subpoenas:

“President Trump and his Administration reject your baseless, unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process. Your unprecedented actions have left the President with no choice. In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the Executive Branch, and all future occupants of the Office of the Presidency, President Trump and his Administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.”

Because, simply put, no vote has been taken:

“Your inquiry is constitutionally invalid and a violation of due process.

In the history of our Nation, the House of Representatives has never attempted to launch an impeachment inquiry against the President without a majority of the House taking political accountability for that decision by voting to authorize such a dramatic constitutional step.”
