President Donald Trump will probably not testify in the impeachment inquiry against him, newly-hired White House special advisor Pam Bondi said.
Bondi, a former Florida attorney general, said that the president wants to testify.
“I know why he wants to testify. Of course, he wants to testify because he did nothing wrong. But do I think its likely hes going to testify? Probably not. Because no one would advise him to testify because this is a sham court,” Bondi said in an interview with “CBS This Morning” on Nov. 20.
“What theyre telling him, come in and prove your innocence, is that the system in which we live now? I believe things will be equal and fair if it goes to the Senate, when it goes to the Senate. But no, the president should not testify. I know exactly why he wants to, though, but no human being should have to come in and prove their innocence, ever.”
Bondi said the open impeachment hearings have fallen flat.
“What have we seen so far? Absolutely nothing. The witnesses yesterday did nothing to hurt the president,” Bondi said.
Trump said on Tuesday he was considering answering written questions from House Democrats.
“Even though I did nothing wrong, and dont like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Trump testified using that method during the probe by special counsel Robert Muellers team, which uncovered no conspiracy or cooperation between Trump or his campaign and Russia.
