White House rejects impeachment inquiry with precious 8-page letter, hilarity ensues - 2019-10-08
Attorney Scott Pilutik wrestles with the news of the day, from a lawyerly perspective…
The White House today dropped an eight-page letter from White House counsel Pat Cipollone, announcing the White House's refusal to cooperate with the House's impeachment inquiry because of a series of not-at-all relevant reasons. Most lawyers will recognize the letter as the type of letter you're embarrassed to write because it's all horseshit but the client insists is essential. Typically those letters don't run eight pages, and typically there aren't dire constitutional ramifications in play, but that's where we are.
In rebuttal, I present 45 seconds of Lindsey Graham from 21 years ago summarizing the constitutional parameters of impeachment.
