Wait, what?

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.”

Do you know how to ensure that the process is fair?

By participating in the process.

This is just pathetic and transparently manipulative. 

Clearly the Trump White House fears that they can no longer play the victim if they agree to participate in this process.

It also indicates that they do not have any fact witnesses who can refute what the Democrats have discovered during the House Intelligence Committee hearings. 

That would include Mike Pompeo, Mick Mulvaney, Rudy Giuliani, John Bolton, or any other witnesses that have so far refused the Democrat’s subpoenas in response to White House directions. 

This is the very definition of running scared.

    “Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel’s back,” she said of Trump. The comment was a reference to Trump’s performance faking an orgasm before thousands of fans at a Minneapolis rally in October. “I had stayed quiet for years, hoping it would fade away, but instead, it got worse. It had been so hard not to defend myself, to let people who hate me control the narrative. I decided to take my power back.”

    “Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro, who will be interviewing the president tomorrow night, says that Trump faking an orgasm at his rally last night is “why he was elected president””
