Before last night’s report on John Bolton’s forthcoming book, Republican leaders were confident that they would defeat the vote on subpoenaing witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trail this week, CNN reports.
But now, it is less certain, according to three GOP sources.
Some Republican senators are privately pushing the White House for information on who in the Trump administration had visibility into John Bolton’s book manuscript over the last month, the New York Timesreports.
The senators “feel blindsided.”
Aaron Blake: “The nightmare scenario for the GOP is that they give Trump the quick and witness-free acquittal that he apparently desires, but then information like Bolton’s keeps coming out. Bolton now suggests Trump was indeed telling people privately that the withheld military aid was part of a quid pro quo — a quid pro quo which European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified that he communicated to the Ukrainians. This is something Trump’s team has strenuously denied, including at the impeachment trial. What if Bolton isn’t the only person Trump told this to who might suddenly contradict them?”
“However closely this has already been tied to Trump, it can always be tied more closely. Bolton’s upcoming book is a great example of how the hastily assembled walls the Trump team have built around its defense can quickly crumble — and in some cases already have.”
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) to the Washington Post: “I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton.”
President Trump falsely claimed that House Democrats never sought testimony from former National Security Adviser John Bolton during their impeachment probe.
Said Trump: “The Democrat controlled House never even asked John Bolton to testify. It is up to them, not up to the Senate!”
The House Intelligence Committee did ask Bolton to testify, but he declined to testify on instructions from the White House.
