Pam Bondi, the former Florida attorney general who recently joined President Trump’s impeachment messaging team, said Sunday that the White House has every right to work with GOP senators in the lead-up to the Senate impeachment trial.
Fox News’s Chris Wallace asked Bondi on “Fox News Sunday” whether it was appropriate for senators – who are asked to be impartial jurors in the trial – to be coordinating with the president, who is essentially the defendant.
Bondi told Wallace on Sunday that the White House “should be working hand-in-hand with them.”
“These are the senators who will decide if our president is impeached, which will not happen, we should and will work hand-in-hand with them,” she said. “These are some of the weakest charges out there, Chris, you know that.”
Bondi added, “We wouldn’t be doing our jobs if we weren’t working hand in hand with the Senate to clear the president of this charade, this sham, that started with [Intelligence Committee Chair] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.], your next guest, and we’re not going to let it continue in the U.S. Senate.”
You know typically when somebody buys off the jury they keep that information to themselves.
But Trump and his folks have no problem literally bragging about how they are undermining justice by bullying, buying, or coercing compliance from the Senate Republicans.
