You are describing a trial. Not an investigation. The trial happens in the senate. That is where the Trump could theoretically complain about constitutional rights. Though that is still a stretch. Those rights refer to criminal trials. Not political ones.To comply with the Constitution's demands, appropriate procedures would include-at a minimum-the right to see all evidence, to present evidence, to call witnesses, to have counsel present at all hearings, to cross-examine all witnesses, to make objections relating to the examination of witnesses or the admissibility of testimony and evidence, and to respond to evidence and testimony. Likewise, the Committees must provide for the disclosure of all evidence favorable to the President and all evidence bearing on the credibility of witnesses called to testify in the inquiry. The Committees' current procedures provide none of these basic constitutional rights.
Surely even the most partisan extremist here know this will never fly in a court of law.
The constitution clearly states that the House has the sole power of impeachment. Period. There’s no other requirements. Sorry that is inconvenient for you.
