On the weekend before act two of the Democrats’ impeachment circus kicks off, the White House has told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler to go pound sand.
The porcine New Yorker who is a longtime enemy of President Trump and who clearly sees impeachment as a way to settle scores sought to have Trump himself show up at their nationally televised lynching, a rigged scam in which he has no way of defending himself.
But the offer to Trump was purely a ruse that would allow Democrats to falsely claim that there was fairness to their farce which is nothing less than a lynching where the president’s “guilt” was predetermined in the early hours after the 2016 election.
On Sunday, the White House sent a letter to Nadler declining the invitation to participate in their Soviet-style show trial which it blasted as the scam that it is.
The letter also pointed out that Nadler and his cronies would be conducting their hearings while the leader of the free world is overseas at the NATO summit.

The White House informed House Democrats on Sunday that it will not participate in the Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment hearing, excoriating Democrats’ impeachment inquiry as a “baseless” and “partisan” exercise in scathing five-page letter to the panel’s chairman.
The decision indicates that President Donald Trump has listened to his allies and some congressional Republicans who argued that a White House presence at the hearing would validate a process they have harangued as illegitimate and partisan.
It also means Trump will lean heavily on his closest GOP allies on the panel — including Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, John Ratcliffe of Texas and Matt Gaetz of Florida — to mount an impeachment defense during the Judiciary panel’s first hearing on Wednesday featuring legal scholars.

“Under the current circumstances, we do not intend to participate in your Wednesday hearing,” White House Counsel Pat Cipollone wrote in a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), adding that “an invitation to an academic discussion with law professors does not begin to provide the president with any semblance of a fair process.”
Nadler had asked Trump to indicate by Sunday whether the president himself or a White House attorney would attend Wednesday’s hearing, an offer that Democrats said was an attempt to afford due process to Trump as he faces a likely impeachment vote before the end of the month.

As the White House pointed out, Nadler’s charade is a “baseless and partisan inquiry” in which there will be no real witnesses called but rather a parade of hand-picked impeachment pimps who will pontificate about impeachment itself and not about any “evidence” of high crimes and misdemeanors which is the standard set by the U.S. Constitution.
It also calls out Nadler’s committee as nothing but a “rubber stamp” on the secretive machinations of Adam Schiff and points out that as Judiciary Committee chairman, Nadler had a responsibility to ensure a fair hearing that affords the president due process. It also states that when Bill Clinton was impeached, that he was allowed to call over a dozen witnesses of his own.
Rather than abandon ship on this stinking garbage barge after the failure of the Schiff inquisition, Democrats are going to dump it on the nation right before Christmas.
