The White House said on Tuesday it will not cooperate with a "baseless, unconstitutional" impeachment inquiry, setting President Donald Trump on a collision course with the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives. In a letter to Democratic House leaders, the White House Counsel wrote "Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice. President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances." The letter came shortly after Democratic House intelligence chairman Adam Schiff blasted the White House Tuesday for blocking the U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from giving testimony in the House impeachment inquiry... even though he had already flown from Brussels to do so.
