White House Slams “Impeachment” Resolution Vote: Unfair and Un-American

The White House is slamming the impeachment resolution vote taken in the House Thursday morning as the administration continues to argue President Trump has done nothing wrong.

"The President has done nothing wrong, and the Democrats know it. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ unhinged obsession with this illegitimate impeachment proceeding does not hurt President Trump; it hurts the American people. Instead of focusing on pressing issues that impact real families, like reducing gun violence, passing the USMCA, improving healthcare, lowering prescription drug costs, securing our southern border, and modernizing our aging infrastructure, the Democrats are choosing every day to waste time on a sham impeachment—a blatantly partisan attempt to destroy the President," White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham released in a statement. 

 "With today’s vote, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing more than enshrine unacceptable violations of due process into House rules. Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and the Democrats conducted secret, behind-closed-door meetings, blocked the Administration from participating, and have now voted to authorize a second round of hearings that still fails to provide any due process whatsoever to the Administration. The Democrats want to render a verdict without giving the Administration a chance to mount a defense. That is unfair, unconstitutional, and fundamentally un-America," she continued.

President Trump has also responded to the vote, which came down along party lines 232-196. 

The White House has previously said it will not comply with this "impeachment inquiry" until the House takes a vote to offically start impeachment proceedings. The vote today does not do that, it simply lays out the rules for how Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff and others will continue with their current investigation.
