Senator David Perdue (R-GA) joined the Brian Kilmeade Show today to discuss the latest on the impeachment hearings as they move through the House and eventually head into the Senate. In response to U.S. Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland saying there was quid pro quo during his testimony this morning, Sen. Perdue replied, “I’ve seen the evidence, it doesn’t rise to the level of impeachment even if there was this quid pro quo that they’re talking about. The high crimes and misdemeanors, this does not, this is not in that category, but I don’t even believe we have that.”
Sen. Perdue went on to explain that this “sham, show trial” is just a continuation of the obstruction we’ve seen since day one, even referencing the headline from The Washington Post the day President Trump was sworn in which read, “The Campaign To Impeach This President Has Already Begun.”
Sen. Perdue also responded to Amb. Sondland claiming in his testimony that he never wanted to work with Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters but simply followed the President’s orders, by saying he was comfortable with Giuliani’s role as a private citizen, as he was acting in the interest of the President and was justified.
