“Incredulous” was Lawrence Tribe’s description of the judge’s comment on how DoJ is arguing that Watergate is a bad precedent. Then again this is an administration of alternative facts and revisionist history.
Similarly WH counsel sent an actually stupid letter today, because this kind of stonewalling is all they seem to have in this impeachment inquiry.

Pelosi responds to WH letter: “The White House should be warned that continued efforts to hide the truth of the President’s abuse of power from the American people will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction.”

A President cannot decide not to be impeached.
That’s a king and we don’t have those in the United States.

Have you read the Constitution? The House is effectively acting as a grand jury, and articles of impeachment are basically an indictment. No defendant gets to “call witnesses” in this phase of an investigation. That happens at trial, which here would take place in the Senate. https://t.co/KzlBJPjJeV
