Why Should The President Assist With His Own Impeachment?

White House: "You have designed and implemented your inquiry in a manner that violates fundamental fairness and constitutionally mandated due process."

President Donald Trump has refused to cooperate with Democrats' impeachment inquiry, fueling outrage from liberals and mainstream media.

The White House told House Democrats Wednesday it will not comply with demands for documents and testimony in Democrats' impeachment inquiry. 

"You have designed and implemented your inquiry in a manner that violates fundamental fairness and constitutionally mandated due process," White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote in an eight-page letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the chairmen of the committees leading the inquiry on Tuesday.

WIBC host Tony Katz wonders why anyone in their right mind would expect the President to participate in his own political execution.

Katz:

"There is not one rule that exists in the Constitution that says you must assist in your own execution. Search high and low, but it doesn't exist. It is nowhere to be found because that concept would be completely and totally unAmerican.

Take a look at the Bill of Rights, and you will see no language that forces a duly elected President to assist those with the boot on his neck.

Where in the Constitution does it say that you must aid in your own execution? This is the question that Donald Trump and his legal team are asking right now."
