House Democrats on Friday ramped up their impeachment (coup) efforts and subpoenaed the White House for documents related to President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Associated Press reported:
The impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump widened on Friday into a constitutional battle between the executive branch and Congress, as Democrats subpoenaed White House officials and the president signaled his administration would not cooperate.
Three Democratic chairmen — Reps. Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff and Eliot Engel — warned Trump in a letter accompanying their subpoena, stating, “Speaker Pelosi has confirmed that an impeachment inquiry is underway, and it is not for the White House to say otherwise.”
President Trump is preparing to hit back at Pelosi and suggested the White House will not cooperate until House holds a vote on impeachment
The White House is expected on Monday to send Pelosi a letter telling the Speaker the White House will not cooperate with Democrats’ demands until the House of Representatives votes on impeachment.
Speaker Pelosi launched an impeachment inquiry into President Trump based on hearsay and gossip from a Deep State CIA snitch about President Trump’s phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — she still has not held a full impeachment vote in the House.
Even worse, House Democrats haven’t even named a specific crime committed by President Trump.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Thursday sent a letter to Pelosi calling on the Speaker to suspend the impeachment investigation into President Trump until she can establish “transparent and equitable rules and procedures.”
A full House vote will expose all vulnerable red-state Democrats who are up for a tough reelection in 2020 and force them to put their necks on the line in voting in favor of impeachment.
Furthermore, an official impeachment vote will give the GOP Minority more influence and subpoena power, something Pelosi is fiercely working to stop.
House Democrats also sent Vice President Mike Pence a letter demanding he turn over all documents related to Ukraine or face a subpoena.
The Democrats know that they do not have a viable candidate to beat Donald Trump in 2020 so they’re going for broke and moving full steam ahead with impeachment.
