Trump's reportedly considering boycotting the Judiciary Committee's impeachment hearings as The New York Times reports. Trump knew about the whistleblower complaint before changing his Ukraine plot and released that country's military aid. Margaret Carlson, an American journalist, political pundit, and an opinion columnist for Bloomberg News, argues the Trump impeachment case is "the opposite of Watergate" saying "It's as if Nixon delivered the tapes before The Supreme Court hearing." People close to Donald Trump in the White House and on Capitol Hill do not believe he will send a lawyer to participate in next week’s Judiciary impeachment hearings, as is his right. Not having a presidential attorney present would leave defending the president to the House Judiciary Committee, which includes Trump allies like GOP Reps. Jim Jordan, Doug Collins, John Ratcliffe and Matt Gaetz. Representative Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York and the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, wrote to the president on Tuesday offering him or his lawyers the opportunity to appear before lawmakers at a Dec. 4 hearing with constitutional scholars to discuss the historical precedents for impeachment, the definition of an impeachable offense and whether Mr. Trump's actions meet the bar for removal. So, who will be the president’s attorney, if he decides to send one? Would it be Rudy Giuliani, whom he just threw under the bus? Or White House counsel Pat Cipollone?
