Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., one of numerous House Republicans on President Trump’s legal defense team, told the “Brian Kilmeade Show” Wednesday that the Democrats’ impeachment efforts will go down as a “sad time in history.”

“You never predict history but having lived this one, history will show this as a very sad time in our history,” Collins said, hours before Trump’s expected acquittal in the Senate.

Collins, who serves as the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, rejected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s claim that Trump’s impeachment will taint his legacy forever, saying, “he will also be acquitted for life too.”

Pelosi appeared furious Tuesday night during President Trump’s third State of the Union address to Congress, which drew groans from Democrats in attendance and prompted the Speaker to rip up her copy of the speech as soon as it concluded.

The dramatic scene held symbolic significance, Collins explained, reiterating his belief that history will judge Pelosi’s actions unfavorably.

“It will show that the Speaker of the House … has symbolically been tearing up the rules of the House, symbolically tearing up the constitution … the due process minority rights she has always claimed to be a part of,” Collins said.

“And,” he continued, “she’s been doing so because of one thing: She just cannot stand a president who does what he says and has the results that he wants.”Yael Halon is a reporter for Fox News.
