Democrats Demand Bolton Testify Following NYT Report Over Book

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Excerpts from former national security adviser John Bolton’s unpublished memoir manuscript were leaked to The New York Times and Democrats are demanding Bolton to testify at President Trump’s impeachment hearings.

The New York Times story claims Bolton writes President Trump was withholding security aid for Ukraine until the country launched an investigation into the Democrats, presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

It’s reported by The New York Times, “President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine,” and following the story, House impeachment managers issued a statement.

The Hill reports:

“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 in a statement.

Democrats commented on social media demanding Bolton to testify.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Alabama Senator Doug Jones tweeted, “If we can’t get Bolton let’s get a subpoena for the book!”

Last week, the Senate impeachment hearings began and this week, President Trump’s defense team will continue to make their arguments at the Senate trial.

The Senate heard the opening arguments that focused on the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine’s President Zelensky on Saturday.

President Trump responded to The New York Times story on social media.

Bolton’s critics question the timing of The New York Times story and his book’s pre-order going live.

The demand by Democrats for witnesses to testify at the Senate trial can easily backfire.

In all likelihood, President Trump would exert executive privilege over Bolton and not allow him to testify because of national security concerns.

That would leave other witnesses to appear before the Senate including Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), as well as former Vice President Joe Biden and son Hunter.
