Bolton Lawyers Might Be Arranging for Him to Talk to Three Impeachment Committees

Former national security adviser potentially could share insights into Trump's relationship with Ukraine, according to reports

It seems that John Bolton, former national security adviser in the Trump administration, may cooperate with House Democrats leading the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

Bolton’s lawyers, according to CNN, are in the process of negotiating with House committees that are spearheading the impeachment probe — Judiciary, Oversight, and Foreign Affairs — which would result in Bolton’s going behind closed doors to answer questions.

Trump is accused, by the Democrats, of threatening, allegedly, to withhold aid from Ukraine if that country wouldn’t help him with investigating improprieties by Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

If former Trump administration member does Bolton sit down to be deposed, he will offer those investigators information about Trump’s relationship with Ukraine.

The rumors are that before Bolton left the West Wing, he was not on board with Trump’s Ukraine dealings.

Here’s more on this from CNN:

Lawyers for former national security adviser John Bolton have had talks with the three House committees leading the impeachment inquiry about a possible deposition, according to a source familiar.

If he does give a deposition, Bolton would join a handful of current and former Trump administration members who have been interviewed this month as part of the Democratic-led inquiry into President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.

As House members who serve on the Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees have been interviewing witnesses in private, some of the committees’ Democrats have said they believe there’s a need for Bolton to testify.

A source told CNN that Hill testified that Bolton referred to Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, who was working to dig up dirt on the Bidens, as a “hand grenade,” who was “going to blow everybody up.” (source: CNN)

Should President Donald Trump be impeached?

These hearings are entrapment, in my view — an effort to try to get somebody to say anything, even if it’s not connected to the Ukraine issue, so they can twist and contort the information to be used for impeachment.

Maybe I am alone in this opinion, but there’s nothing to betray — so there’s no concern for Bolton to betray the president.

All he will say is he disagreed with the president on some issues, which everyone already knows.

There’s nothing there, so they’ll get nothing, as I see it.

I grew up a Democrat and supported former President Bill Clinton.

Once I was able to educate myself, I was then silenced by the same people that showed me the Democrat Party. No more for me.
