Like a mustache cup, Bolton's story cannot stop his testimony in the Senate trial

2 min read

Boom! Trump paying the price for his iniquity, malevolence, and base ineptitude.

Congressional Democrats called for former national security adviser John Bolton to testify in President Trump’s impeachment trial following a new report that the president told Bolton last August he wanted to withhold military aid to Ukraine unless it aided investigations into the Bidens.

The New York Times reported Sunday evening that in last summer’s conversation, Trump directly tied the holdup of nearly $400 million in military assistance to the investigations of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. That is according to an unpublished manuscript of Bolton’s forthcoming book, the Times said.

In a joint statement, the seven House impeachment managers called the report “explosive” and urged the Senate, controlled by Republicans, to agree to call Bolton as a witness in Trump’s trial, which kicks off its second full week on Monday. Bolton has said he would testify before the Senate if subpoenaed.

Every GOP senator, even the somnolent Risch of Idaho needs to be asked how they can deny the need for witnesses and documents in the senate trial.
