WASHINGTON, D.C. – The White House has formally declined a congressional invitation for President Biden to testify, in connection with an ongoing impeachment inquiry. The announcement was made through a letter from Richard Sauber, Special Counsel to the President, addressed to Congressman James Comer, Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Accountability.

In the letter dated April 15, 2024, Sauber contends that the committee’s “impeachment inquiry” has only unearthed evidence proving the President’s innocence, contrary to the allegations stated in Comer’s March 28 correspondence. The White House asserts that these allegations have been repeatedly debunked and refuted by witnesses and documents obtained during the course of the investigation.

Sauber’s response highlights that the insistence on these claims, despite contradicting evidence, suggests a disregard for the facts by the committee. He mentions that this conclusion is also reflected in a recent fundraising email from Comer, indicating a potential political motivation behind the investigation.

Citing the completion of the inquiry as understood from internal communications and acknowledgments by Comer himself, the Special Counsel to the President articulates that it is time for the House to redirect its focus to more pressing matters affecting the American people rather than persisting in what he describes as a “partisan charade.”

The letter concludes with the White House’s formal refusal to comply with the request for President Biden’s testimony, underlining the belief that continuing the investigation would be a misuse of time and taxpayer resources.
