White House Rejects Nadler Impeachment Hearing Request

President Trump will not participate in the first impeachment inquiry before the House Judiciary Committee scheduled for Wednesday.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) sent a letter to President Trump specifying a December 6 deadline, saying, “Please provide the committee with notice of whether your counsel intends to participate, specifying which of the privileges your counsel seeks to exercise.”

White House counsel Pat Cipollone informed the Committee Sunday night in a five-page letter explaining the president’s decision because the hearing “does not begin to provide the President with any semblance of a fair process.”

The Judiciary Committee will decide if the information gathered at the recent Intelligence Committee hearings warrant impeachment. The Judiciary Committee will focus on the legal justification for impeachment by interviewing experts on the Constitution.

Democrats urged the president to participate in the hearings.

Representative Val Demings (D-FL) discussed President Trump and the impeachment hearings over the weekend, saying, “If he has not done anything wrong, we’re certainly anxious to hear his explanation.”

Demings also commented on Twitter.

President Trump blasted Democrats for holding more hearings while he will be in London at a NATO summit.

Representative Doug Collins (R-GA) commented over the weekend.

According to Fox News, “Fifty percent of independents questioned in an NPR/PBS/Marist poll conducted Nov. 11-15 did not support impeaching and removing Trump from office, with just 42 percent backing such a move.”

A Pennsylvania Democrat voter said to CNN about impeachment, “I am tired, I really am, I am tired of it all.”

Given the partisan process by Democrats, President Trump made the right call not to participate in the Judiciary Committee hearings.
