Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 08, 2019

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 President Trump. In a letter to House Democratic leaders, the White House said the inquiry violates precedent and Mr. Trump's due process rights in such an egregious way that neither the president 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."
