Trump won't participate in hearings

The White House will not participate in future House Judiciary Committee hearings that are designed to outline evidence in support of President Donald Trump’s removal from office.

In a one page letter sent to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), White House Counsel Pat Cipollone criticized the ongoing impeachment inquiry as “completely baseless” and that it violates “basic principles of due process and fundamental fairness.”

“As the President has recently stated: ‘if you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast, so we can have a fair trial in the Senate,’” he wrote.

The White House does not plan to cooperate, according to a senior administration official who responded to a follow-up question.
