New York Times: White House Declares War on Impeachment Inquiry, Claiming Effort to Undo Trump’s Election

WASHINGTON — The White House declared war on the House impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, announcing that it would not cooperate with what it called an illegitimate effort “to overturn the results of the 2016 election” and setting the stage for a constitutional clash with far-reaching consequences.

In a letter to House Democratic leaders, the White House said the inquiry had violated precedent and denied President Trump’s due process rights in such an egregious way that neither he nor the executive branch would willingly provide testimony or documents.

“Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice,” said the letter signed by Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel. “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.”

WNU Editor: The headline for this New York times article is ridiculous. It is the Democrat Congress that is targeting President Trump and violating precedent and due process, and President Trump is responding. As to where will all of this end up? I expect all of this will be resolved in the courts by next year. As for Congress drawing up the articles of impeachment, I do not expect any delay in that.

Everything the Democrats do is shady.


For example

In his book Farrow alleges that former NBC anchor Matt Lauer raped a female colleague in her hotel room in 2014.

Farrow also accuses Hillary Clinton of putting pressure on him to spike his Harvey Weinstein story.

That makes sense.
She did the same thing with Bill Clinton for decades.

She is a walking and talking contradiction.

Matt Lauer like the rest of the Mainstream or legacy media are important team players for Team Democrat, Team Plantation!

Hillary is looking out for the team!

So there is that.
