WASHINGTON, D.C. - George Conway, husband to White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, slammed the White House's letter refusing to cooperate in House Democrats' impeachment inquiry as "an excuse to prevent evidence, damning evidence, from reaching the public."
"The thrust of (the letter) is that there are some kind of constitutional obligations that the House has failed to meet that therefore render its impeachment inquiry illegitimate and unconstitutional, which is complete nonsense, because all the Constitution says is that the House has the sole power over impeachment," he added.
The accusation from Conway -- a vocal conservative lawyer who's often at odds with his wife's boss, President Donald Trump -- come as the White House looks to put pressure on House Democrats for choosing not to hold a vote to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry.
A vote is not officially needed because the Democratic caucus already has more legal authority compared to past impeachment inquiries.
He added that the letter "virtually guarantees" that Trump will be impeached, calling it "a disgrace to the country, a disgrace to the presidency, and a disgrace to the legal profession."
