WASHINGTON, DC (Reuters) — Faced with President Donald Trump’s refusal to cooperate with the impeachment probe, the Democrat Party will seek to extradite Trump to China so he can be tried in a fair and neutral Communist Party-controlled court.
“The President has unlawfully tried the patience of Congress by refusing to submit to our inquiry,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said today. “His actions are not consistent with Constitutional rights or democracy, but a result of foreign interference in our national elections.”
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said his restraint in the matter so far “should not be misconstrued as weakness” and that Chinese President Xi Jinping has agreed to host the trial in Hong Kong.
Schiff has released a transcript of his phone call with the Chinese leader, saying it was “100 percent appropriate” for a co-equal branch of government to enlist the help of another country that has a seat on the U.N. Security Council.
“Let me be clear,” Schiff said. “America cannot have one country and two systems. We must return to the rule of law, and any attempt by Trump to secede from that will be crushed by the Party.”
