Dems Hold Impeachment Hearing While Trump Is Away At NATO, POTUS Rips Them A New One!
Trump called Dems out for intentionally scheduling the impeachment hearing while he was scheduled to be away for the 70th annual NATO meeting. While Trump isn’t a fan of NATO, as President he is obligated to attend these meetings. A fact that Democrats are more than aware of.
The president made the remarks as he left Washington for London on the scheduled trip — one that created an obvious scheduling conflict when House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., invited Trump to participate in his committee’s first impeachment hearing on Wednesday. The president has declined the offer, and suggested Monday that Democrats were well aware of the timing, according to Fox News
“So the Democrats, the radical left Democrats, the do-nothing Democrats decided when I’m going to NATO, which was set up a year ago, that when I’m going to NATO that was the exact time,” Trump said, noting that his NATO trip is “one of the most important journeys” of his.
Trump said that the impeachment efforts are “a hoax to start off with,” and pointed to a new interview with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that he claims supports his case. Trump is accused of pressuring Zelensky into investigating Democratic activities during the 2016 election as well as former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter, allegedly withholding military aid to Ukraine as leverage.
In a letter Sunday, White House counsel Pat Cipollone also accused Nadler of strategically timing Wednesday’s hearing for when Trump is away.
“You scheduled this hearing—no doubt purposely—during the time that you know the President will be out of the country attending the NATO Leaders Meeting in London,” Cipollone wrote.
“As for the hearing scheduled for December 4, we cannot fairly be expected to participate in a hearing while the witnesses are yet to be named and while it remains unclear whether the Judiciary Committee will afford the president a fair process through additional hearings,” Cipollone continued. “More importantly, an invitation to an academic discussion with law professors does not begin to provide the President with any semblance of a fair process. Accordingly, under the current circumstances, we do not intend to participate in your Wednesday hearing.”
Nadler on Monday called the response “unfortunate.”
