However, the Democrats were not having it. They immediately responded on Twitter.
Rep. Don Beyer tweeted, “The US Constitution says the House of Representatives “shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.” It’s in Article One. The third Article of Impeachment against Nixon adopted by the House Judiciary held him in “Contempt of Congress” because he “willfully disobeyed… subpoenas.“
Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. tweeted, “Trump and his enablers continue to argue that the Constitution is unconstitutional.This letter could’ve been written by the same authoritarian goons trump admires so much. It’s garbage, reeking of violent desperation, and won’t halt Congress one iota.“
Rep. Julian Castro tweeted, “Subpoenas don’t come with an “optional” label. If the Donald Trump refuses to comply, he is obstructing justice—another impeachable offense.“
Congressman Justin Amash tweeted, “It’s as though the White House is unfamiliar with the difference between impeachment in the House and trial in the Senate. It’s also as though the White House is unfamiliar with the Constitution generally.“
