He signed an eight-page letter in October 2019 to Democratic House leaders stating that the White House would not cooperate in any way with the inquiry.
He laid out a broad view of executive authority and said that Democrats’ actions violate “the Constitution, the rule of law, and every past precedent”. Cipollone wrote two letters in December 2019 in response to an invitation from Jerry Nadler, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, for the White House or Trump himself to participate in its hearings.
Cipollone said the White House and Trump would not participate because the planned hearings do not “provide the president with any semblance of a fair process” and the inquiry is “completely baseless”. He was named to the team of attorneys on January 14, 2020, who will represent President Donald Trump in the impeachment hearing case.
