Vice President Mike Pence will be the latest to feel the sting of the Democrats this week, but a showdown over privilege continues to loom over The Beltway.
The President has insisted that he will not be cooperating with the Democrats until such a time as they vote on this current impeachment “inquiry”. Otherwise, the Commander in Chief feels as though the left is operating in a carte blanche method from which he will have little recourse. This attempt to force the House’s hand may come at any minute, as Vice President Pence is facing a number of document requests from the left side of the aisle.
House Democrats on Friday asked Vice President Mike Penceto turn over a host of documents by Oct. 15 as part of their impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
The Democrats said in their letter to Pence that failure to comply will be evidence of obstruction of the House’s impeachment inquiry and “may be used as an adverse inference against you and the president.”
The chairmen of the House committees leading the investigation said they’re investigating the extent to which Trump “jeopardized national security by pressing Ukraine to interfere with our 2020 election and by withholding security assistance provided by Congress to help Ukraine counter Russian aggression, as well as any efforts to cover up these matters.”
VP Pence has spoken strongly on the subject of this latest impeachment push by the Democrats, siding heartily with President Trump.
Pence even went as far as to say that the President’s attempts to combat corruption are precisely why voters chose Trump and he to lead the nation, as the country was ready to “drain the swamp” of Washington’s white collar criminals.
