President Donald Trump is not guilty and did nothing wrong because "the facts and the truth are on [his] side," House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins said on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures."

Collins, who is a member of the president's defense team, said this is clearly a political impeachment, as the Democrats "have nothing on this president except smear, innuendo, and the election in 2020 in mind."

The Georgia Republican reiterated that "It is just an onerous attack by Democrats who had only one thing in mind, let's impeach the president. Remember Nancy Pelosi's words, 'he's impeached for life. He'll never get rid of this.' That sounds more like somebody on a vendetta to smear somebody than to actually find truth because the truth is he did nothing wrong."

He also mocked Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, for getting choked up toward the end of his closing argument, saying, "Adam Schiff getting emotional is a little bit farcical to me."

Collins added, "if he wants to get emotional about something, get emotional about the fact that you have smeared a president who has done his job and put America first, in a position of world leadership, not the tearing down politically what you tried to do to him."

When asked about speculation that there could be at least three Democrats in the Senate who will vote to acquit the president, Collins said, "if they honestly look at the evidence, that's what they should do. There should be more than three on the Democratic side, but partisan politics is always at play here."
