The executive branch doesn’t get to choose who chairs Congressional committees or runs Congressional hearings, or how impeachment inquiries are conducted. “The House of Representatives...shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.” https://t.co/T2fDV7NcM3

BREAKING: WH tells @SpeakerPelosi the impeachment inquiry "lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation." In other news: "The House of Representatives ... shall have the sole Power of Impeachment." -Article I, Section 2, Clause 5 (of the #Constitution) https://t.co/AZhCsnFQS6

The first paragraph of WH letter says Pelosi has labeled the investigation an impeachment inquiry "contrary to the Constitution." The Constitution doesn't mention an "impeachment inquiry." It does vest in the House both the power of impeachment and the power to make its rules.

The US Constitution says the House of Representatives "shall have the sole Power of Impeachment." It's in Article One. The third Article of Impeachment against Nixon adopted by the House Judiciary held him in "Contempt of Congress" because he "willfully disobeyed... subpoenas." https://t.co/HH7RunDe9T

“The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.” What word don’t you understand?

Last hour, I asked a senior WH official how Cipollone's letter -- blasting the impeachment inquiry as "unconstitutional" -- comports with Article I's clear command that the House shall have the "sole Power of Impeachment." The answer, in essence, was, "Precedent is on our side."

Zero ambiguity or nuance in these words from the Constitution - "The House of Representatives shall choose their speaker and other officers; and shall have the sole power of impeachment." What say all you sanctimonious "defenders" of liberty and the Constitution?

@NBCNews The United States Constitution provides that the House of Representatives "shall have the sole Power of Impeachment" (Article I, section 2). There’s your Constitutional basis.

Dear Messrs Cipollone and Trump: The Constitution would like a few words with you: "The House of Representatives shall choose their speaker and other officers; and shall have the sole power of impeachment."

"The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment." - Constitution, Article I, Section 2, Clause 5. "This Impeachment inquiry violates the Constitution." - People who have never read the Constitution. https://t.co/4knrRD5jfL

Here is what the Constitution says about the House and impeachment: "The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment." Literally, all it says about it is that the sole power of it is in the House.

@nytimes Does this lawyer even know the laws? Per the Constitution: - The House of Representatives shall have the sole power of impeachment. - The Senate shall have the sole power to try all impeachments. The Executive branch is obligated by law, to cooperate if summonsed.

@GOPLeader You are inserting clauses in the Constitution. What part of "sole power of impeachment" are lost on?

@senatemajldr The basic procedure is that the House has the sole power of impeachment. The WH has NO power. The basic procedure is the House has the sole power. What part of sole power don't you get?

@jaysbookman
@TomMcMahanDade Well, when the Founders agreed that the House "should have the sole power of impeachment," they just forgot the part where the president gets to decide whether the impeachment effort against him is legitimate or not. It was an oversight on their part that Trump is now correcting.

We are in a constitutional crisis. We don't have a king who determines whether or not he's held to account. The constitution says, "The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment."

@GOPLeader @realDonaldTrump You can't dictate the terms -- the House has the sole power of impeachment. If the House demands documents they have the sole power to. What part of sole power are you lost on? Trump has no typical legal rights since this is a political case.

@FreeVermont Time for some predictions. Judicial branch minor leagues will split on exec branch need to comply. SCOTUS will declare it non-justiciable, political issue. Both Ds and POTUS declare victory. House has sole power of impeachment. Let them declare refusal to be evidence of

@jaysbookman The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment. Gee, Constitution doesn't say the President or Executive branches have any say in it at all...hmm...

@getyrtrouserson
@steveholland1 Is this true, though? Seems relevant to know one way or another given Article I's "The House of Representatives... shall have the sole power of impeachment."

@mycroft16 @WhiteHouse “Clause 5: Speaker and other officers; Impeachment The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.” Which means the house can do it however they want. They could flip a coin if they wanted to.
