President Trump is slamming Democrats for holding secret meetings with former Trump administration officials in an attempt to find information that could lead to impeachment.
According to The Hill:
President Trump on Tuesday complained that Democrats are “allowing no transparency” by holding closed-door hearings with a cavalcade of administration officials as part of the House impeachment inquiry.
The president claimed he did not know most of the individuals giving potentially damaging testimony about his dealings with Ukraine as numerous administration officials defy the White House’s refusal to comply with the investigation.
Trump’s tweets echoed calls from some Republican lawmakers who have called on Democrats to release the full transcripts of their private hearings with Trump administration officials.
Fiona Hill, a former special assistant to the president who specialized in Europe and Russia affairs, testified on Monday that Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland pursued a “shadow foreign policy” in Ukraine.
The new moves by Democrats come as the Administration has made clear that they will not cooperate with an “informal” impeachment inquiry.
