The White House Counsel has sent Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi a letter declaring President Donald Trump and his administration will not cooperate with the impeachment inquiry.

Pat Cipollone, the White House Counsel and not President Trump’s personal attorney, in the 8-page letter (read in full, below), claims the impeachment inquiry is an attempt to overturn the 2016 election.

“President Trump cannot permit his Administration to participate in this partisan” inquiry. The letter uses the word “partisan” nine times.

Cipollone claims the impeachment inquiry “violates fundamental fairness and constitutionally-mandated due process.”

Noted conservative attorney George Conway, who has successfully argued a unanimous case before the Supreme Court, calls the letter “garbage.”
