Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, December 06, 2019

The White House on Friday blasted the House's impeachment inquiry as "completely baseless" and a "reckless abuse of power" ahead of a deadline set by House Democrats for the White House to say whether it would participate in the impeachment proceedings. White House counsel Pat Cipollone sent a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler attacking the Democrats' impeachment inquiry, though the message did not explicitly say that President Donald Trump's counsel would not take part. "As you know, your impeachment inquiry is completely baseless and has violated basic principles of due process and fundamental fairness," Cipollone wrote in a two paragraph letter. "Adopting articles of impeachment would be a reckless abuse of power by House Democrats, and would constitute the most unjust, highly partisan, and unconstitutional attempt at impeachment in our Nation's history."

Hell, Trump is having a nervous breakdown defending himself. If only things like laws and the Constitution weren't in the way. He'd be Superman and able to do anything, anything, anything at all.

43% of Republicans agree with Trump that he shouldn't have to worry about being constrained by Congress or the courts.
