John Bolton and Lawyers Now in Talks to Testify in Impeachment Probe

Trump and Bolton never did get along well, so there’s no telling where his potential testimony could go.

Despite the lack of a House vote to authorize it, the left’s “formal impeachment inquiry” continues to gather steam on Capitol Hill.

The Democrats are continuing to insinuate that President Trump has violated his oath of office by allegedly pressuring Ukraine to investigate not only the Biden family, but also certain aspects of the 2016 election.  Their inquiry, which has been largely held in secret and out of the public eye, is now entering a hectic phase of subpoenas and testimony, much of which is coming from former White House officials this week.

The latest big fish that the Democrats are angling for is former national security adviser John Bolton, who appears to be ready to talk himself.

The news comes more than a week after the White House’s former top Europe expert, Fiona Hill, reportedly testified to Congress that Bolton was so disturbed by efforts to get Ukraine to investigate Trump’s political opponents that he called it a “drug deal.”

Hill said that Bolton told her he did not want to be part of that push, which involved White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, according to reports of her testimony.

Hill also reportedly testified that Bolton had called Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani a “hand grenade.”

Giuliani has been at the head of a charge to have Ukraine launch investigations that could benefit Trump politically ahead of his 2020 reelection effort.

Bolton and Trump were often at odds during his time in the White House, with Boltons’ reputation as a bit of a “war hawk” causing friction between he and the diplomacy-favoring President.
