And now we have the next great attempt by the Democrats in the House to pretend to placate the Republicans on the impeachment hearings. The repeated trope from the White House and the president’s major defenders in the House and Senate has been first the secrecy, then lack of Trump witnesses, and last the fact the president couldn’t be represented in the hearings.

Once again, be careful what you ask for as you just might get it. The White House was offered a chance to participate in the next round of hearings…and I don’t imagine any of us are surprised that they passed on the opportunity. huh??

The Democratic majority on the House Intelligence Committee says its report will speak for itself in laying out possible charges of bribery or “high crimes and misdemeanors,” the constitutional standard for impeachment. After receiving the report, the Judiciary Committee would prepare actual charges.

That committee’s first hearing was already set for Wednesday and was expected to feature four legal experts who will examine questions of constitutional grounds as the committee decides whether to write articles of impeachment against Trump, and if so, what those articles would be.

The White House was invited to attend the Wednesday hearing, but its counsel declined in a fiery letter released Sunday evening.

Ain’t nothing gonna make ’em happy!

but back to my headline…no the president can’t defend himself!
