Fox News reports:
The White House said Friday it will not participate in House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings, blasting the inquiry as “completely baseless” in response to a deadline from Democrats.
“House Democrats have wasted enough of America’s time with this charade,” White House counsel Pat Cipollone said in a scathing letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., obtained by Fox News. “You should end this inquiry now and not waste even more time with additional hearings.”
“Adopting articles of impeachment would be a reckless abuse of power by House Democrats, and would constitute the most injust, highly partisan and unconstitutional attempt at impeachment in our Nation’s history,” he sad.
