White House Says It Won't Participate In House Judiciary Committee Impeachment Hearing
The White House said Sunday night that it will not be participating in the House Judiciary Committee's upcoming impeachment inquiry hearing, White House counsel Pat Cipollone said in a letter. The will begin Wednesday.
Committee chairman Jerry Nadler told the White House on November 26 that they had until December 1 to decide if they would participate in Wednesday's hearing. The White House was not expected to participate in the hearings. The White House was offered the president the option of sending someone to represent him.
The letter accused Nadler of intentionally scheduling the hearing to interfere with President Trump's trip to the NATO summit in London later this week.
