White House plans to spurn Democrats' request for documents in impeachment inquiry

Source: NBC

WASHINGTON — The White House is planning to spurn Democrats' request for documents sought as part of their impeachment inquiry as administration aides scramble to calibrate a legal response strategy.

White House lawyers plan to argue that until there is a formal vote by the House to begin impeachment proceedings, Congress doesn’t have the right to the information, said people familiar with the discussions.

“Well, we’ll be issuing a letter," President Donald Trump told reporters as he departed the White House Friday. Asked whether he was going to cooperate with any House subpoenas, Trump was noncommittal.

"I don't know, that's up to the lawyers," he said. "I know the lawyers think they've never seen anything so unfair, never seen anything so unjust."

It's the strategy Trump's used all his life. Drag his feet and hope his opponents get tired and give up.

5. Developers and regulations

tie 'em up in court

No surprise. Get on with the impeachment, do not delay, it won't change.

This is no longer about fact finding, it's about impeaching him and either getting him out of office or tar and feathering GOP for 2020.

6. Beyond the pale, flaunting his guilt is not suppose to be a thing?



Citizen's arrest by phone, feels like it should be an option?

We have a felony comedy troop paid for by taxes?

7. "I just keep whining and whining till I get what I want."

That's the closest I can remember to Spanky's exact words, heard on tv quite a while ago - it was a recording of him on a radio program. So yeah, his strategy is to keep doing shit till he wears people out. Just like a liddle' child.

12. Corruption and obstruction and any lawyers that engage in it should

have face ethics complaints that potentially could see them lose their license to practice law.

13. Sometimes I wish we lived in some medival age

Where if enough people just grabbed their torches and pitchforks everything is over in a couple of days.

All of the litigation, and counter-litigaion, appeals, suits. The Republicans, and especially Trump, use the courts, as you say to, "Drag his feet and hope his opponents get tired and give up"

Not only that, but it makes peoples eyes gloss over. Especially after years of the same case. Everyone is all energized when one is first announced, and then a year or two later there may be some update on that particular case, and its "whatever, there are so many new cases to talk about".
