White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham on Tuesday assailed the House impeachment resolution as "an illegitimate sham from the start" that afforded President Donald Trump no due process rights.
"The resolution put forward by [House] Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi confirms that House Democrats' impeachment has been an illegitimate sham from the start, as it lacked any proper authorization by a House vote," Grisham said in a statement via Twitter.
The House Rules Committee released the impeachment resolution Tuesday after Pelosi, D-Calif., set a floor vote the day before for Thursday.
Grisham then attacked House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for his conduct during the current inquiry.
"It continues this scam by allowing Chairman Schiff, who repeatedly lies to the American people, to hold a new round of hearings, still without any due process for the president," she said.
"The White House is barred from participating at all, until after Chairman Schiff conducts two rounds of one-sided hearings to generate a biased report for the Judiciary Committee," Grisham continued.
"Even then, the White House's rights remain undefined, unclear, and uncertain, because those rules still haven't been written.
"This resolution does nothing to change the fundamental fact that House Democrats refuse to provide basic due process rights to the administration," she said.
