Transcript for House Democrats set deadline for Trump to attend upcoming hearing
Gio, thank you. And house Democrats had set a 5:00 P.M. Deadline for president trump to inform them whether he would present a defense in the upcoming hearings. And Cecilia Vega, we know you've been reporting the president has complained he has not had representation in these hearings. But the white house signaling they're not going to participate going forward? Reporter: Yes, it came in a later late today. White house sources are telling us there's no plan to participate. White house lawyers saying the impeachment inquiry is baseless and has violated due process and fundamental fairness. You should end the inquiry now and not waste any more time. They're quoting the president, who just yesterday said, if you're going to impeach me, do it fast so we can focus on a trial in the senate. In the meantime, how are Democrats responding to this? Reporter: Jerry Nadler says they've subpoenaed officials, only to say they're stonewalled by the white house. He says they're moving ahead. Thank you. And moving on to news about your 401(k) And jobs.
