Former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker warned that with the public hearings portion of the impeachment inquiry the U.S. is “entering an incredibly divisive moment” in history.
Whitaker made his comments in a column posted on the Fox News website on Wednesday.
“Democrats will continue to move the factual ‘goalposts’ and deny the president fundamental due process and fairness – bedrock constitutional principles at the foundation of our country,” he said.
“Democrats in the House will cherry-pick the witnesses and thereby paint an inaccurate picture of what the president is alleged to have done.
“There has been no witness – other than the rough transcript of the July 25 phone call between President (Donald) Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy – that has offered a firsthand account of what President Trump did regarding Ukraine military aid and a possible investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden’s corruption.”
He said Americans need to ask: ‘Is it the highest and best use of the time of the House of Representatives to spend weeks looking for any actual evidence of the president violating the law?’”
Whitaker questioned why top Democrats are not speaking out “against this partisan and impeachment charade.”
And he added: “Impeaching President Trump on completely partisan grounds is bad for our country and has a long-term consequence of being a new blunt instrument that cannot be returned to the sidelines.”
