Dear Congressman Schiff:
Having read the letter from the DNI office General Counsel refusing to provide the Intelligence Committee with access to a whistle blower complaint. I believe you have just one option available.
Submit an impeachment resolution on the floor of the House, citing Donald Trump’s refusal to perform his Constitutional duty to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed”, and authorizing the use of any and all powers and authorities under Art 1, Sec. 2, Clause 5.
The resolution should specifically authorize an immediate petition to the Supreme Court pursuant to this concern.
Given the general obstruction of the administration, an additonal omnibus provision should also be included, and also specifically citing the House’s impeachment powers.
Armed with this resolution, your committee should immediately petition the United States Supreme Court for an extraordinary writ of mandamus, compelling the DNI to release the whistle blower complaint within 24 hours, based on the urgency of national security concerns.
Thank you for your consideration.
