Revelations from Bolton's Book Demolish Trump's Last Impeachment Defense
Former national security adviser John Bolton's new book will say that President Trump withheld $400 million in US security aid to force Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden. And, unlike other administration officials who have testified, Bolton heard it directly from the President, shattering Trump's last line of defense.
Bolton also states in his book, according to numerous sources, that Trump illegally withheld the aid despite his objections and those of other administration officials including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper.
If Republicans in the Senate don't vote this week to call Bolton as a witness in Trump's impeachment trial, there will be no doubt that they are willfully aiding the President in obstructing the inquiry.
As we have said before, this will be one of those moments in American history that will be studied for generations. Senate Republicans can choose to be remembered for their adherence to the Constitution and the rule of law, or as partisan hacks protecting a corrupt President in order to further their own political careers. That must be weighing heavily on their consciences this morning.
