Somewhere they can't find me.
Neither President Donald Trump nor his attorneys will participate in Wednesday's House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, they said late Sunday.

In a letter to Chairman Jerrold Nadler, White House counsel to the President Pat Cipollone said, "We cannot fairly be expected to participate in a hearing while the witnesses are yet to be named and while it remains unclear whether the Judiciary Committee will afford the President a fair process through additional hearings. More importantly, an invitation to an academic discussion with law professors does not begin to provide the President with an semblance of a fair process. Accordingly, under the current circumstances, we do not intend to participate in your Wednesday hearing."




I bet Cipollone thought he was being witty in his contempt, but it merely reaffirms his client's guilt.

Nope. Just shows he doesn't want to play their stupid games. When it goes to the SENATE ,that is when he can crucify the Lyin' Dems and PROVE they are traitors.

Good, Trump can't say he wasn't offered a chance to defend himself. Of course there is no defense of Trump's actions. This assures impeachment and it couldn't have happened to a worse piece of shit than the Don!

They know they will be impeached in the House and are playing to the base to make sure Senators acquit him. He will be impeached. Then, all we will hear from here on out is how unfair it was. Non-stop whining and pissing and moaning, that is all he does.

That was no chance. The private hearings by Schiff show this is more of the witch hunt and is not about being fair or about justice
