You'd think that Trump would rush into those hearings...like it's a school under gunfire.

White House won't participate in first Judiciary impeachment hearing
[thehill.com]

The White House on Sunday informed the House Judiciary Committee it will not participate in Wednesday's impeachment inquiry hearing but did not rule out taking part in future hearings.

"[W]e cannot fairly be expected to participate in a hearing while the witnesses are yet to be named and while it remains unclear whether theJudiciary Committee will afford the President a fair process through additional hearings," White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.).

"More importantly, an invitation to an academic discussion with law professors does not begin to provide the President with any semblance of a fair process," Cipollone wrote. "Accordingly, under the current circumstances, we do not intend to participate in your Wednesday hearing."

The committee will hold a hearing on Wednesday entitled “The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment." The panel will hear from legal scholars as Democrats weigh whether the evidence turned up in their weeks-long impeachment inquiry warrants the drafting of articles aimed at removing the president from office.

This way they can whine about not being able to give their side.

“Lying under oath”.... one of those little problems with testimonies. Tweeting you can lie like hell.

I hope they ask Alan Dershowitz to testify.
