The Trump Administration asserted that the House Impeachment Investigation is nothing more than a "baseless, unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process" and they will therefore refuse to cooperate in the process. The letter read more like a scorched-earth rant than a formal legal opinion and, if held up by the courts, would essentially turn the Executive Branch into a King like status. House Speaker Pelosi responded in her own scathing letter, reminding Trump of the separation of powers granted in the Constitution and said that his refusal to cooperate would only strengthen their case against him.
