U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday dismissed the Democrats’ sham impeachment inquiry and refused to hand over requested documents related to Ukraine.
House Democrats recently sent a letter to Vice President Mike Pence demanding all documents related to Ukraine.
The Dems demand came after it was revealed Pence’s national security advisor was on the July 25 phone call with Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The Trump-Zelensky phone call, which was above board, prompted a sham impeachment inquiry because the Democrats are desperate to stop Trump from winning in 2020.
Pence’s counsel Matthew E. Morgan on Tuesday sent a letter to Dem chairs on three key committees, Schiff, Cummings and Engel and told them he will not be participating in their “self-proclaimed impeachment inquiry.”
“As detailed in the White House Counsel Letter, the House of Representatives has not authorized any “impeachment inquiry.” Specifically, the operative House rules do not delegate to any committee the authority to conduct under the impeachment power of Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution,” Mr. Morgan wrote.
“Never before in history has the Speaker of the House attempted to launch an “impeachment inquiry” against a President without a majority of the House of Representatives voting to authorize a constitutionally acceptable process,” he added.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) confirmed to her Democrat Caucus on Tuesday that there will be no formal floor vote to officially launch an impeachment probe against President Trump.
It’s a total scam.
Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani also told the Democrats to pound sand on Tuesday and refused to comply with a congressional ‘subpoena.’
“Mr. Giuliani will not participate because this appears to be an unconstitutional, baseless and illegitimate ‘impeachment inquiry,” Giuliani’s counsel wrote to Schiff.
