Republicans Criticize Impeachment Campaign in Open Letter to Nadler

With the impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump moving to the House Judiciary Committee, House Republicans have written an open letter to Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.).

“[B]ipartisan cooperation has been the exception, rather than the rule. Under your leadership, bipartisan solutions to real problems affecting real Americans have been sacrificed in favor of Committee Democrats’ obsession with impeaching the president and undoing the 2016 election,” the Republican staff on the House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees wrote.

The House Judiciary Committee had its first hearing on Wednesday. President Trump did not attend, nor will any of his legal staff. He will be at the NATO summit in Britain.

“Committee Republicans stand ready to work with you to address the above challenges. However, should you continue to pursue this ‘impeachment inquiry,’ and do so without regard for the fundamentally American principles of fairness and due process, we will resist vigorously. Our constituents deserve no less,” the House Republicans stated.
