The Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt continues to implode before their very eyes.
Each day brings more bad news about the disastrous course of action House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has charted.
And now Nancy Pelosi is reeling after suffering this humiliating impeachment setback.
Democrats know impeachment has landed with a thud with the American people.
All polls show stalled or declining support for impeachment.
And in a desperate move, the House Judiciary scheduled a public hearing for Wednesday to try and make the legal case for impeachment.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler invited White House lawyers to participate, but in a scathing five-page letter, White House counsel Pat Cipollone blasted the proceeding as partisan and nonsensical.
The White House informed House Democrats on Sunday that it will not participate in the Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment hearing, excoriating Democrats’ impeachment inquiry as a “baseless” and “partisan” exercise in scathing five-page letter to the panel’s chairman.
The decision indicates that President Donald Trump has listened to his allies and some congressional Republicans who argued that a White House presence at the hearing would validate a process they have harangued as illegitimate and partisan.
It also means Trump will lean heavily on his closest GOP allies on the panel — including Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, John Ratcliffe of Texas and Matt Gaetz of Florida — to mount an impeachment defense during the Judiciary panel’s first hearing on Wednesday featuring legal scholars.
“Under the current circumstances, we do not intend to participate in your Wednesday hearing,” White House Counsel Pat Cipollone wrote in a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), adding that “an invitation to an academic discussion with law professors does not begin to provide the president with any semblance of a fair process.”
The main reason that the Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt has collapsed is because there is no bipartisan support from Republicans for a sham proceeding that provides the President no due process over a manufactured scandal.
President Trump and his lawyers’ refusal to participate in the Democrats’ kangaroo court will allow Republicans to rightly point out impeachment is nothing more than a partisan power grab by the Democrats.
