Obama lawyer rips White House impeachment strategy: ‘I didn’t think it was possible’ to not cooperate

Published

on

The former acting Solicitor General of the United States blasted President Donald Trump’s legal strategy during the impeachment inquiry.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper interviewed Neal Katyal about his new book, Impeach: The Case Against Donald Trump.

“What do you make of the White House strategy, A., its effectiveness and, B., legality, in terms of not cooperating at all, no documents from the State Department, from the White House other than that rough transcript which they released early on,” Cooper said.

“I dedicated my life to the study of the constitution and I didn’t know that the president’s strategy here was a thing,” Katyal replied. “I didn’t think it was possible.”

“I mean, the idea that a president on his own can unilaterally say, ‘I’m not going to bother cooperating with an impeachment investigation’ — that is the essence of constitutional arrogance and the destruction of our separation of powers,” he explained.

“I think it is an impeachable offense just the way the president has acted toward this impeachment investigation,” he added.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
