President Trump is revving up his Twitter account for what should be an interesting Monday in Washington DC following the late Sunday news about claims made by his former advisor John Bolton.
Trump tweeted Monday morning: “The Democrat controlled House never even asked John Bolton to testify. It is up to them, not up to the Senate!”
The tweet comes on the heels of a bombshell report from the New York Times. The liberal leaning news outlet reported that Bolton’s new book shines a damaging new light on the president’s actions with withholding aid from Ukraine.
According to the Times, Bolton’s new book, which hit Amazon this weekend, reveals the president wanted to keep back aid from Ukraine in exchange for information on Joe and Hunter Biden. This represents a challenge for Trump as Democrats are using the information as a demand for Bolton to testify in the impeachment trial unfolding in the senate.
Democrats are calling for Republican senators to allow witnesses in the trial, namely Bolton, who is expected to say Trump is guilty of the accusations put forward by the House.
The Democrat controlled House never even asked John Bolton to testify. It is up to them, not up to the Senate!
