White House Statement Terms Democrats’ Impeachment as an ‘Illegitimate Sham”
Oct. 30, 2019 (EIRNS)—Yesterday, the office of the White House Press Secretary issued the following statement, posted on the White House website, on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment resolution:
“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.
“It continues this scam by allowing Chairman Schiff, who repeatedly lies to the American people, to hold a new round of hearings, still without any due process for the President.
“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 for the Judiciary Committee. Even then, the White House’s rights remain undefined, unclear, and uncertain—because those rules still haven’t been written.
“This resolution does nothing to change the fundamental fact that House Democrats refuse to provide basic due process rights to the Administration.”
