Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “The White House called the Democrats' impeachment case against Trump a 'dangerous attack' in its first formal response”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
President Donald Trump's legal team issued its first formal response to the House Democrats' articles of impeachment on Saturday, calling the case a "dangerous attack on the right of the American people to freely choose their President."
Trump faces two impeachment charges: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The charges are based on allegations that Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine after urging its president to investigate Trump's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.
The White House's six-page formal response called the charges "an affront to the Constitution of the United States, our democratic institutions, and the American people," lambasting the House impeachment proceedings as a "rigged process" conducted by vengeful Democrats.
"This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election — now just months away," the letter said. "The highly partisan and reckless obsession with impeaching the President began the day he was inaugurated and continues to this day."
