Trump’s admin blasts bill to formalize impeachment inquiry

WASHINGTON, The White House strongly criticized the bill passed with overwhelming majority at the US House of Representatives earlier Thursday to formalize the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

“The President has done nothing wrong, and the Democrats know it,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

“Illegitimate impeachment proceeding does not hurt President Trump; it hurts the American people,” she protested, adding, “Waste time on a sham impeachment – a blatantly partisan attempt to destroy the President.” The resolution, passed by 232 House Dems against 196 Republicans, sets the procedures for public impeachment hearings and the release of deposition transcripts; it also outlines the Judiciary Committee’s role in considering potential articles of impeachment.
