Top Trump Aide Won’t Testify In Impeachment Probe, Conway Says

Audrey Conklin on November 6, 2019

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday that White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will not testify in the impeachment probe against President Donald Trump.

Her comments came after three House committee chairs wrote a letter Tuesday to Mulvaney requesting that he appear before a closed-door deposition in front of the foreign affairs, oversight and intelligence committees Friday.

Conway said she has been told “no” as to whether Mulvaney was planning to accept the request and testify, according to The Hill.

The presidential counselor added that the impeachment hearings “should have been public from the beginning” and that Democrats can’t do anything to save the process, since it has been “ill-conceived from the beginning,” The Hill reported.

Conway also suggested that Democrats initiated the probe without a specific instance of impeachable wrongdoing in mind, asking, “Why would [the White House] try to be complicit in an impeachment inquiry when we don’t know what it’s about?” according to The Hill.

The committee chairs warned Mulvaney in their letter that a refusal to appear before the three committees would be “further evidence of obstruction of the House’s impeachment inquiry and may be used as an adverse inference against you and the President.”

The letter also mentioned a New York Times report that detailed testimony from former White House aide Fiona Hill.

Hill testified that former national security adviser John Bolton said he wanted nothing to do with whatever U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland and Mulvaney were “cooking up” in a pressure campaign on Ukraine to dig up dirt on 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, according to two witnesses who heard the testimony.

Trump made a phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July asking him to look into Hunter Biden’s business dealings in the country, which became the center of a whistleblower complaint in September and inspired the impeachment inquiry.

  • This is all about Uranium Deal selling US stockpile to Russia and deflecting this by way of the blame turn that first it was Russia, Now Ukraine so Biden can get free money and the ability of groping every intern he can get his hands dirty with, and what about the 50k a week Biden Jr gets . Reps, when are you gonna see YOU NEED TO GET ON OFFENSE NOW AND MAKE THE CORRUPTION BY CLINTON AND OBAMA GO ON DEFENSE , and show Dems the real guys with balls to nail them all caught in the deep state. I cannot believe Benghazi, weapons to Mexico. On and on it keeps going only now reps getting shot playing softball, or doing yard work ends with collapsed lung and many injuries with long hospital. Time to bring in the accountability before it’s too late. Real Patriots are tired of Hillary’s famous what difference does it make attitude while allowing perverts run rampant, Get Your Big boy pants on and take them out or civil war is faintly on the horizon. Get Republicans fair elections and arrest Uranium seller Clinton , pocketing the funds and put her in GITMO and bring back WATERBOARDING

All of those sending in cash for the GOP and the President's campaign. Dems, the best fundraisers that the GOP didn't have to hire.
