If Donald Trump's base is having doubts about his presidency, they weren't evident in Minneapolis on Thursday night.
In a letter to Pelosi and the House chairmen pursuing the impeachment inquiry, the White House said the Democrats were conducting a "constitutionally invalid" and "illegitimate" impeachment probe that absolves lawmakers of "taking political accountability".
President Trump has hit out at a Fox News poll, which claims that just over half of voters are in favor of his impeachment. But considering the latest polling results indicating erosion in the public's appraisal of Trump in the wake of his current political troubles, his path to a second term might not be so certain, should he be acquitted in the Senate. He has claimed that he is the victim of a "coup", although impeachment is a constitutional process, and accused Democrats of trying to undo the 2016 election. So when the White House takes this approach, what real power do Congressional investigators have to force the White House to comply?
The White House letter comes hours after the Trump administration blocked the USA ambassador to the European Union from appearing before a congressional impeachment investigation.
His GOP allies have launched a countrywide campaign to try to reverse that trend and inflict political pain on vulnerable Democrats who are supporting the House investigation. Conviction requires a two-thirds majority of senators present, so 20 or more Republican senators would need to join all Democrats in voting to remove the president.

A storm surge warning also is in effect for the eastern Florida Panhandle and the state's Big Bend region north of Clearwater. A disturbance in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico is likely to become a tropical storm that will hit the northern U.S.
An Quinnipiac University poll published October 8 found similar results, with 53% of the registered voters surveyed supporting the impeachment inquiry, and 45% of respondents saying Trump should be impeached and removed from office. Both incidents drew widespread condemnation from otherwise stalwart Trump supporters, who called the chants racist and urged the president to condemn them.
Berman says who will end up knowing what and when depends largely on the White House.
Next week Trump is set to hold a rally in Dallas, Texas, a GOP stronghold that has grown more competitive for Democrats in recent cycles.
Now advisers fear the restraint won't last as Trump, already angered by the impeachment probe, heads to Omar's district.
"They want to erase your vote like it never existed", Trump told his supporters in Minneapolis at the beginning of the rally.
