Pam Bondi, a former Florida attorney general and current member of President Donald Trump’s legal defense team, blasted the entire impeachment process in a recent appearance on Fox News Channel’s Justice with Judge Jeanine.
“This thing has become so flimsy that there’s absolutely nothing there in the articles of impeachment,” Bondi told Judge Jeanine Pirro. “It’s an insult to the American people. It certainly is to the president, but I think now we’re just ready to put this behind him.”
Bondi noted the fact that the articles of impeachment do not include any actual crimes. “They have not charged the president with any crime because the president did nothing wrong,” Bondi said. “There was no crime. The transcript of that phone call speaks for itself.”
Speaking on the quality — or lack thereof — of the impeachment articles sent by the Democrats in the House, Bondi called them “basic trash.”
Pirro asked Bondi about whether the Senate should call Schiff as a witness since he “lies every time he opens his mouth.”
Bondi’s response was very clear. “Oh, we may very well call him as a witness if we ultimately have witnesses,” she said. “Don’t discount that yet.”
