The White House on Tuesday afternoon blasted Schiff and Pelosi in response to the Democrat impeachment resolution scam.
“The resolution put forward by Speaker Pelosi confirms that House Democrats’ impeachment has been an illegitimate sham from the start as it lacked any proper authorization by a House vote,” Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.
“The White House is barred from participating at all, until after Chairman Schiff conducts two rounds of one-sided hearings to generate a biased report the Judiciary Committee. Even then, the White House’s rights remain undefined, unclear, and uncertain – because those rules still haven’t been written.”
Full statement from Grisham:
The text of the Democrat impeachment resolution was released Tuesday afternoon and it further confirmed the Democrats are attempting to remove Trump via a coup under the guise of impeachment.
According to the impeachment resolution, ranking member of the House Intel Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) can only issue subpoenas, call in witnesses and introduce evidence with Democrat Chairman Adam Schiff’s permission.
Under normal impeachment proceedings, Minority members of the committees would have equal subpoena power and they would be able to call in witnesses.
This sham impeachment process is denying the President due process and denying the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes the right to call in his own witnesses.
Republican lawmakers on Tuesday defended President Trump and said the impeachment resolution is a scam and the Democrats’ latest attempt to legitimize their Soviet-style impeachment inquiry.
