Dems Demand Bolton Testify in Impeachment Trial After 'Bombshell' Report

Democrats are renewing calls for John Bolton to testify after The New York Times published a report about an excerpt from the former national security adviser’s forthcoming book, which claims President Trump tied Ukraine aid to officials helping investigate the Bidens.

"John Bolton has the evidence," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a tweet. "It’s up to four Senate Republicans to ensure that John Bolton, Mick Mulvaney, and the others with direct knowledge of President Trump’s actions testify in the Senate trial." 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Republican senators now have a choice between "our Constitution or a cover-up." 

"Amb. Bolton reportedly heard directly from Trump that aid for Ukraine was tied to political investigations. The refusal of the Senate to call for him, other relevant witnesses, and documents is now even more indefensible," Pelosi tweeted. 

In a joint statement, House impeachment managers said the revelation further highlights the need for Bolton to be called as a witness. 

"Senators should insist that Mr. Bolton be called as a witness, and provide his notes and other relevant documents. The Senate trial must seek the full truth and Mr. Bolton has vital information to provide," the House managers said.

"There is no defensible reason to wait until his book is published, when the information he has to offer is critical to the most important decision Senators must now make — whether to convict the President of impeachable offenses," they continued.

President Trump and other Republicans argued the timing of the "bombshell" report has more to do with increasing book sales.
