        Donald J. Trump
        President of the United States
        The White House
        1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
        Washington, DC  20500

        Dear Mr. President:

               Earlier this week, Chairman Schiff announced that the House Permanent Select
        Committee  on Intelligence (HPSCI) is preparing a report summarizing the evidence we have
        found this far, which will be transmitted to the Judiciary Committee soon after Congress returns
        from the Thanksgiving recess.' That report will describe, among other things, a months-long
        effort in which President Trump again sought foreign interference in our elections for his
        personal and political benefit at the expense of our national interest and an unprecedented
        campaign of obstruction in an effort to prevent the Committees from obtaining documentary
        evidence and testimony.2 As you are also aware, the Judiciary Committee has been engaged in
        an investigation concerning allegations that you may have engaged in acts of obstruction of
        justice, as detailed in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Report on the Investigation into Russian
        Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election. For detailed discussion of the scope of the
        impeachment  inquiry, I refer you to the report accompanying House Resolution 660.

               In anticipation of our consideration of these matters, I am writing to determine if your
        counsel will seek to exercise the specific privileges set forth in the Judiciary Committee's
        Impeachment  Procedures adopted pursuant to H. Res. 660 and participate in the upcoming
        impeachment  proceedings. In particular, please provide the Committee with notice of whether
        your counsel intends to participate, specifying which of the privileges your counsel seeks to
        exercise, no later than 5:00 pm on December 6, 2019.

               I look forward to your prompt response.


        'Chairman Adam  Schiff, H. Permanent Select Comm. On Intelligence, Dear Colleague from Chairman
        Adam Schiff on Next Steps for Impeachment Inquiry, Nov. 25, 2019.
