White House rejects House Judiciary's invitation to participate in impeachment hearings

House Democrats have released a report laying out their case for impeachment, which is countered by Republicans insisting the investigation has been unfair.

"I think the case we have, if presented to a jury, would be a guilty verdict in about three minutes flat", he said.

Representative Jerrold Nadler told CNN's "State of the Union" his committee will not decide on the charges against the Republican president until after a hearing on Monday to consider evidence gathered by the House Intelligence Committee that led the investigation.

"The framers worst nightmare is what we are facing in this very moment", Nadler said in a statement releasing the report. "It's communicating to your constituents why you voted one way or another for a principled reason".

Democratic officials familiar with the investigation said Saturday no articles of impeachment have yet been written.

But Republicans demanded that Joe Biden's son Hunter, the lawmaker leading the impeachment probe Adam Schiff, and the whistleblower at the origin of the inquiry all testify next week before the House Judiciary Committee.

The report outlines the goal of impeachment and what could be deemed an impeachable offense.

The White House on Friday sent a letter to the committee declining to participate in the proceedings, including any requests to present evidence or defense witnesses.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Thursday that she had asked committee chairmen to craft articles of impeachment against the president. "Democrats have wasted all of their time, and all of America's time on this ridiculous impeachment sham", said Sanders. Senate Republicans have given little indication they would support Trump's removal.

"Under Speaker Pelosi's leadership, House Democrats have eroded the integrity of our chamber and sacrificed the confidence of Americans who trust Congress to balance power, not abuse it".

Democrats also have accused Trump of abusing his power by withholding $391 million USA in congressionally approved security aid to Ukraine - a vulnerable USA ally facing Russian aggression - and holding back a coveted White House meeting with Zelensky as leverage to pressure Kyiv into investigating the Bidens.

The probe is focusing on a July 25 telephone call in which Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation into Biden and his son Hunter, and into a discredited theory promoted by Trump and his allies that Ukraine, not Russian Federation, meddled in the 2016 USA election.

Impeachment - all you need to know What is Mr Trump accused of? They have denied wrongdoing and the allegations have not been substantiated.

The panel is considering articles of impeachment that would accuse Trump of abuse of power in his dealings with Ukraine and obstruction of Congress for refusing to cooperate with Congress.

Nadler also said the White House has turned down an invitation for Trump to testify and for his lawyers cross-examine witnesses at House hearings. "I hear he's found plenty". Last weekend, Zelensky again reiterated there was no pressure campaign in exchange for military aid. Nadler, however, is considered unlikely to call them.

Like numerous 31 Democrats from districts President Donald Trump won in 2016, freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., is feeling the squeeze of impeachment.
