Senate To Consider Bolton Testimony

Via The Washington Examiner:

A group of Republican senators said they want a chance to consider witness testimony in President Trump’s impeachment trial, raising the chances they’ll summon former national security adviser John Bolton.

Bolton, who left the White House in September — Trump said he was fired, while Bolton said he quit — said last month he is willing to testify in the Senate impeachment trial if called by lawmakers, although Trump indicated he might use executive privilege to block him from speaking.

Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Mitt Romney of Utah have all signaled they may want to hear Bolton’s testimony.

Sen. Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican who is retiring after his term ends, said he might support a vote to call witnesses but did not indicate who should be on the list.
