Former National Security Advisor John Bolton has been an outside but key figure in the impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump and on Monday, the former Trump aide spun the impeachment news cycle on its head when he announced that he is willing to testify in the impeachment trial if he is subpoenaed.
Bolton said in a statement released to his website, “The House has concluded its Constitutional responsibility by adopting Articles of Impeachment related to the Ukraine matter. It now falls to the Senate to fulfill its Constitutional obligation to try impeachments, and it does not appear possible that a final judicial resolution of the still-unanswered Constitutional questions can be obtained before the Senate acts.”
