It is "disappointing" Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, believed what was said about President Donald Trump and chose to vote him guilty on an impeachment article charging him with abuse of power, Pam Bondi, a former Florida attorney general who served on the president's legal team for the proceedings, said Thursday.
"It's disappointing that Sen. Romney bought into all of [lead House impeachment manager] Adam Schiff's continued lies about the president," Bondi told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "No one else did. It wasn't even a close call. We shouldn't have even gotten here."
Meanwhile, Bondi said Trump is "feeling great" after he was acquitted on both articles of impeachment, but the trial will "go down in history as a huge stain" on Congress, "I think, forever."
"It's going to go down in history as a huge stain because they cannot deter President Trump and because they dislike him so much, they're trying to take him out of office and they're not going to be able to overturn the election and impact the 2020 election," Bondi said.
All Democrat senators voted to convict Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Romney cast the lone vote, on abuse of power, but voted not guilty to the obstruction charge.
Bondi said she has high hopes for Trump's future, but she thinks Democrats will continue with their attacks.
"President Trump will be re-elected and they [Democrats] are going to keep trying over and over and over again because of all the great things he has done for our country and they can't handle it," she said. "This was just a ridiculous sham on our country, for the taxpayers, waste of all this time and energy, when they could be doing all the good things that President Trump has been doing for the country."
