Washington DC, Oct 9 (TIWN) Washington resembles a bullpen where a verbal shell game is on. This evening Donald Trump fighting his accusers in what has become a brutal cage match took the knife to the fight in the prison yard. His counter attack vicious and determined and monotypical of his style and mien.

His press secretary slammed his detractors in a no holds barred counter punch, the statement direct and focused nailing the impeachment inquiry for what he thought it was worth.  Slamming the Dems for their naked partisan approach to influence the 2020 polls. Trump''s direct attack leaving semantics out of it stated that the executive which headed would not fall prey to the exercise of nuanced political theatre even as he fought for the rights of the American people.  In a confluence of live OTT streaming shows, the seamy underbelly of Designated Survivor, House of Cards and Madam Secretary is playing out in the city of intrigue. The press secretary statement left nothing to chance -  The President has done nothing wrong, and the Democrats know it. For purely political reasons, the Democrats have decided their desire to overturn the outcome of the 2016 election allows them to conduct a so-called impeachment inquiry that ignores the fundamental rights guaranteed to every American.  These partisan proceedings are an affront to the Constitution-as they are being held behind closed doors and deny the President the right to call witnesses, to cross-examine witnesses, to have access to evidence, and many other basic rights.  On behalf of Trump, Pat Cipollone, Counsel to the President, sent a letter to Speaker Pelosi and Chairmen Engel, Schiff, and Cummings. The letter demonstrates that the Democrats'' inquiry lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation, any pretense of fairness, and even the most elementary due process protections. Democrats are pursuing purely partisan goals, including influencing the upcoming 2020 election. 

"In the process, they are violating civil liberties and the separation of powers, threatening Executive Branch officials with punishment simply for exercising their constitutional rights and prerogatives. All of this violates the Constitution, the rule of law, and every past precedent. For these reasons, the Executive Branch cannot be expected to, and will not participate in, this exercise of partisan political theater," the letter said.  President Trump and his entire Administration will, however, keep fighting for the American people, growing the economy, building prosperity, and protecting America''s interests at home and abroad, it said. 

In parallel, the White House released an eight page statement signed by the President''s personal counsel Pat A Cipilone addressed to Trump''s current bete noire Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the chairmen of the various House Committees. The sum and substance being that he will not back down, come what may, true to his fighting and impervious persona. The extremely aggressive statement said:  I write on behalf of Trump in response to your numerous, legally unsupported demands made as part of what you have labeled-contrary to the Constitution of the United States and all past bipartisan precedent-as an "impeachment inquiry." As you know, you have designed and implemented your inquiry in a maimer that violates fundamental fairness and constitutionally mandated due process.
