WHITE HOUSE REJECTS DEMOCRATS’ ‘ILLEGITIMATE’ IMPEACHMENT CRUSADE IN SCATHING LETTER
‘President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances’
The White House issued a brutal rebuke to the Democrats’ impeachment circus on Tuesday, declaring the Trump administration would not cooperate with their “illegitimate” impeachment inquiry.
In an eight-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and three Democratic committee leaders, the White House accused them of embarking on a “highly partisan and unconstitutional effort” that threatens “grave and lasting damage to our democratic institutions, to our system of free elections, and to the American people.”

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