    White House Declares War on Impeachment Inquiry, Alleging Effort to Undo Trump’s Election

    White House Declares War on Impeachment Inquiry, Alleging 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 and partisan effort “to overturn the results of the 2016 election” of Donald J. Trump.


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


    “Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice,” said the eight-page 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.”

    So Trump is now openly obstructing a congressional investigation.

    Trump is completely out of control, he has declared himself above the law, openly committing crimes and defying congress.

    How can any true American condone this action???

    Best explanation I've found thus far. twump hasn't a single credible legal leg to stand on.

    Neal Katyal on Twitter: "How inane. You don't get to block impeachment just b/c you don't like it. To review the bidding, Trump says he

    *Can't be indicted when he commits crimes
    *Can't even be investigated for his commission of crimes, AND
    *Can't be impeached either

    So he's saying in effect he's a King… https://t.co/hEYp7HE1ge"
    Well, he see this one particularly hot chick and not does she bag he slackjawed, but he lets a "Whoa" slip out

    And daring Republicans to do their jobs.

    I'm pretty sure the Republicans had to turn their testicles in to the White House when Trump took office.

    twump sycophants and conservatives in general feel more comfy be ruled over by a strong father/king figure rather than being free citizens.
