Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Legalinsurrection.com: “Trump won't participate in Monday impeachment hearing: "Pelosi has already announced the predetermined result"”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
This response is unsurprising given that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced yesterday that the House was going to proceed with impeachment. The implication is that this true regardless of the outcome of Nadler’s hearings, rendering them moot.
The White House said Friday it will not participate in House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings, blasting the inquiry as “completely baseless” in response to a deadline from Democrats.
“House Democrats have wasted enough of America’s time with this charade,” White House counsel Pat Cipollone said in a scathing letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., obtained by Fox News. “You should end this inquiry now and not waste even more time with additional hearings.”
. . . . “As you know, your impeachment inquiry is completely baseless and has violated basic principles of due process and fundamental fairness,” he wrote. “Nevertheless, the Speaker of the House yesterday ordered House Democrats to proceed with articles of impeachment before your Committee has heard a single shred of evidence.”
A senior administration official told Fox News: “We don’t see any reason to participate because the process is unfair. Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi has already announced the predetermined result. They will not give us the ability to call any witnesses.”
