Lindsey Graham Interested in What Boltons’ Book Has to Say
Bolton’s book may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back when it comes to impeachment witnesses.
A mustachioed wrench has been thrown into the proverbial gears of Mitch McConnell’s Senate impeachment trial plans, and it has some GOP lawmakers a but concerned as well.
Bolton served as a national security adviser to the White House at the time of the alleged “extortion” of Ukraine at the hands of Donald Trump. In House testimony, several witnesses described the longtime Washington insider as not fond of the way that American foreign policy in regard to Ukraine was being handled, and Bolton was often referred to as someone that would be key to understand the scandal itself.
Yet, the Democrats have been reluctant to subpoena Bolton, who himself said that such a maneuver would compel him to speak to Congress.
Now, as Senate Majority Leader McConnell continues to push for a no-witness impeachment trial, Bolton is poised to release a book that could force him to change his mind.
Even Senator Lindsey Graham, a staunch supporter of President Trump, wants to get a look at the potentially catastrophic tome.
After a report indicated former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s forthcoming book would describe President Trump calling for a Ukraine quid pro quo, Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) said Monday that senators “should get access to that manuscript to see what they’re actually saying.” Graham agreed with Lankford’s proposal in a Tuesday tweet, but added he would like the manuscript to be viewed “if possible, in a classified setting.”
Lankford also imported Bolton to step out into the spotlight now, saying that there are “plenty of microphones all over the country” from which the former national security adviser could speak on the subject.
