USA: White House calls for trump to end its impeachment trial

US White House calls for the end of impeachment Trump The White House sees the impeachment investigation as unfair. The Democrats would be wasting their time, said Cipollone, head of the legal department. The White House has called on the Judiciary Committee in the House of Representatives to end the “completely unfounded” and unfair investigation into impeachment of US President Donald Trump. The Democrats have already wasted enough time on their investigations, White House legal department head Pat Cipollone said in a letter circulated by the US media on Friday. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler had called on the White House to declare by Friday afternoon (local time) whether Trump’s representatives would attend the hearings. The letter did not answer this question explicitly, but, given the very critical choice of words, clearly indicated that Trump’s lawyers continue to boycott the case. To continue impeachment efforts is a “ruthless abuse of power by Democrats in the House of Representatives,” Cipollone wrote. It was an unfair, party-politically motivated and unconstitutional attempt to depose a president, said Cipollone. The Judiciary Committee is now drafting charges before the House of Representatives decides whether or not to remove Trump from office. If a majority of MPs vote for it, it would come in the Republican-controlled Senate to a kind of trial against Trump. A condemnation there is considered unlikely, since for 20 Republicans would have to vote with their democratic colleagues. Trump has indicated that the White House would participate in the Senate trial. The process was triggered by the Ukraine affair. In a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodimir Selenski in July, Trump had initiated an investigation into his political rival Joe Biden. The Democrats accuse Trump of abuse of office and accuse him of being dependent on the announcement of such investigations a visit Selenski in the White House and the release of military aid. Trump rejects the allegations. Now on wiwo.de You want to know what drives the economy? Click here for the latest articles of WirtschaftsWoche. © Handelsblatt GmbH – All rights reserved.
