The White House said it would not cooperate with Democratic congressmen on the president’s impeachment proceedings.
The White House refuses to participate in the process of impeachment of the American head of Donald Trump. This was stated by the spokeswoman of the Us President Stephanie Grisham.
On behalf of the president, her legal adviser, Pat Cipollone, sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as well as to the heads of congressional committees, Engel, Schiff, and Cummings.
The letter says the Democrats’ investigation against Trump has no constitutional basis.
“They violate civil liberties and the principle of separation of powers, threaten the executive branch with punishment for defending their constitutional rights and prerogatives,” Grisham said.
She added that this violates the constitution, so the White House will not take part in this “political theater.”
Recall, in late September, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the beginning of impeachment proceedings against Trump. The reason was a complaint by a U.S. intelligence official against the president, in which he accused him of trying to involve a foreign state in meddling in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
The White House released a transcript of Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Vladimir Selensky in July. During the conversation, Trump complained to Zelinsky about the unjustified dismissal in 2016 of Attorney General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating corruption at Burisma. Biden’s son was on her board.
