White House: Trump Administration Won’t Cooperate With ‘Illegitimate’ Impeachment Probe

"The White House should be warned that continued efforts to hide the truth of the President's abuse of power from the American people will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction", she said in a statement Tuesday night.

The letter, published on Tuesday evening, condemned the impeachment initiative in the harshest terms yet, arguing it deprived President Trump of "constitutionally mandated due process", and that the inquiry lacked legal legitimacy, as it was never authorized by a House vote.

"The president said Article 2 says, 'I can do whatever I want.' No, it doesn't Mr. President".

In the July phone call, which was flagged as part of a whistleblower complaint, Trump urged Zelensky to look into possible interference by Ukraine in the 2016 election as well as former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter's dealings in the country.

Progressive activists have been credited for keeping the heat on lawmakers to hold Trump accountable for his misconduct, and advocacy groups are continuing to mobilize to ensure House Democrats follow through with their inquiry.

Cipollone says the probe is invalid because the House has not voted to authorize the launch of an impeachment inquiry.

"The House under the Constitution sets its own rules, and the House has sole power over impeachment", Douglas Letter, a lawyer for the House Judiciary Committee, told the court.

The White House has embarked on a newly clear strategy to counter the impeachment threat to Trump: Stall.

Cipollone also accused Congress of threatening executive branch officials with punishment for exercising "fundamental constitutional rights and prerogatives".

"Because participating in this inquiry under the current unconstitutional posture would inflict lasting institutional harm on the executive branch and lasting damage to the separation of powers, you have left the president no choice".

"There is no valid basis to withhold documents from the committees by relying on instructions from Secretary Pompeo, who is a fact witness in this inquiry and who is now defying his own duly issued subpoena for documents - particularly if the Department's goal is to block the committees from gaining access to your documents prior to your testimony". On Monday, House Democrats issued a fresh round of subpoenas to the Pentagon and the White House Office of Management and Budget requesting documents relating to reports that Trump ordered then-acting OMB Chief Mick Mulvaney to freeze aid to Ukraine.

House Democrats are waiting to see if the Trump administration will block the former USA ambassador to Ukraine from speaking to their investigators. He resumed on Wednesday, calling for the person to be "exposed and questioned properly".

You have denied the President the right to cross-examine witnesses, to call witnesses, to receive transcripts of testimony, to have access to evidence, to have counsel present, and many other basic rights guaranteed to all Americans.
