The House decision to refuse to provide material to the Trump administration that would tend to show his innocent, so-called Brady material, is stunning.
The Star Chamber House impeachment inquiry is anything but a fair investigation with justice as its goal. It is the antithesis of due process of law. It is a grossly unfair process designed to produce a desired result, not a just and fair result. House Democrats claim that, because the Constitution does not itself define “impeachment” or dictate a process, that they are free to adopt a process free of any semblance of due process for President Trump. Our history holds otherwise.
The House Resolution that passed today to “formalize” the House procedures for the impeachment inquiry — a resolution carefully worded so that it could not be mistaken for an “impeachment resolution” that would trigger rights for Republicans in the House — was meaningless. It did nothing more than restate the rules of the faux impeachment inquiry applied by the House Democrats since Sept. 24, when Pelosi announced an “impeachment inquiry.” I covered that here, and nothing has changed with but one exception. As I pointed out yesterday,
I am in the Rules Committee room where Democrats are marking up their impeachment resolution.@RepDLesko offered an amendment requiring any evidence which is exculpatory regarding the President to be given to the Judiciary Committee.
Democrats rejected it.
