Trump Refuses to Cooperate with Nancy Pelosi Impeachment Inquiry

The White House on Tuesday sent Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi a letter declaring Donald Trump and his staff will not cooperate with the impeachment inquiry.

Trump claims that the actions of Nancy Pelosi amounts to an illegal attempt to overturn the 2016 presidential election.

‘The President cannot allow your constitutionally illegitimate proceedings to distract him and those in the Executive Branch from their work on behalf of the American people.

The President has a country to lead,’ White House counsel Pat Cipollon wrote to the speaker and to House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings and Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engle, who are ovesreeing the impeachment probe. ‘Put simply, you seek to overturn the results of the 2016 election and deprive the American people of the President they have freely chosen,’ he wrote.

UPDATE: A Louisiana Republican congressman introduced a resolution Tuesday to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., from the House of Representatives, the latest sign that frustration in the GOP is building as Democrats continue their impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

Rep. Ralph Abraham’s resolution stands no realistic chance of passing in the Democratic-controlled House. Likewise, Republicans have argued that Democrats’ potential articles of impeachment are all but certain to stall if they ever reach the Senate.

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”

Nancy Pelosi is an American Democratic Party politician serving as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives since January 2019, the only woman to have done so. First elected to Congress in 1987, she is the highest-ranking elected woman in United States history. As Speaker of the House, she is second in the presidential line of succession, immediately after the vice president.
