US President seeks to discredit impeachment.

US president Donald Trump has today called for outing the whistleblower behind the impeachment inquiry threatening his presidency and sought to transform the entire scandal into a boost for his 2020 reelection campaign.

In an eight-page letter signed by the White House counsel, Trump describing the impeachment saga as illegitimate said his administration would not cooperate with the Democratic-led House of Representatives.

Meanwhile, Trump, who broke with precedent by campaigning for reelection almost from the moment he took office in 2017, has called the Republican Party to pushed hard and raise funds to off the back of their accusation of unfair treatment from the Democratic lower house in Congress.
