Pam Bondi: WH Should Work “Hand-In-Hand” With GOP Senators On Impeachment
The recent addition to President Trump’s impeachment messaging team, Pam Bondi, said Sunday that the White House can and should work with Republican senators before the Senate impeachment trial, according to The Hill.
The former Florida attorney general appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and was asked whether it was appropriate for senators to be coordinating with the president.
“How impartial can [the trial] be if [Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell [R-Ky.] is taking his cues from the White House?” Fox News’s Chris Wallace asked.
McConnell last week told Fox News that “there will be no differences between the president’s position and our position as to how to handle this.”
“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,” Bondi said. “These are some of the weakest charges out there, Chris, you know that.”
“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,” she continued.
