John Bolton ready to testify in Trump impeachment trial

"I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify," Mr Bolton said in a statement.

Will he be happy to pout the knife into his former boss*, or, now that The Don is doing just what he wants (provoking Iran as far as he can go), will he be happy to see the hapless idiot remain in office as a puppet figurehead while the real power, Pompeo, steers the "President" onto the rocks of disaster? We must never underestimate just how cunning and devious these people are.

* I called The Don his boss! :rofl:

and then

I heard today that Schiff is going to reopen the inquiry so the R's in the Senate should just dismiss what has been done up to now and let the D's drag the country through the whole process again.  Graham and McConnel need to change the Senate rules just as Pelosi has unilaterally changed the House rules.  This farce needs to be ended.  But since Pelosi has held onto the articles, the Senate needs to adjudicate from their side.  The worst that happens is the D's keep their word and Impeach again.  

I think that as we stand near the edge of another shooting war, this time with Iran, the American public is going to become angry over this nonsense and they are going to see this effort as a witch hunt.  If Bolton decides to testify about things that are covered under the claim of executive privilege then Trump just needs to ask the USSC for an injunction and a ruling before Bolton can ignore that request.

This impeachment trial reminds me of a clip from the movie Constantine ... and the resulting behavior of the accused ... The Keep.

Weren't you guys demanding first hand testimony? 

Now you're cheering that first hand testimony being buried. 

It's becoming undeniable at this point. 

Just come out and admit the law no longer matters to you, the Constitution no longer matters to you and America no longer matters to you. Just "winning" for the dear leader.

Hmm... this is hardly news, is it ? 

If John Bolton, or anybody else short of Jesus Christ, is issued with a subpoena by the Senate, then OBVIOUSLY they will testify. I mean, what else can they do ? Go to prison ? 

"I have concluded that, if somebody drives their car over my foot, I am prepared to be hurt". 

"I have concluded that, if somebody shines a light in my eyes, I am prepared to be dazzled"

"I have concluded that, if asked a question, I am prepared to state the bleedin' obvious ! "

No matter what it seems like at this point, I think Boltens testimony is going to be interesting, better get the popcorn ready.

Well many were subpoenaed by Congress and no one went to jail for not showing up, are saying the Senate has more power or is there a double standard.

I hope he does, but I doubt they would call some one who doesn't support their cause. If he does testify it's time to get out the popcorn because it is going to be interesting.

Positively, President Trump apparently wouldn't allow White House personnel to testify. You don't remember, I know you posted to all the impeachment threads and that was a major topic of discussion.

I'd not be so quick if I was a Dem Leader. They have no idea what he wants to say. Could be he undermines their previous witnesses.

Regardless, any testimony cant be added to the existing impeachment articles. Unless they are withdrawn, which has never happened before and WILL make the existing impeachment look like a kangaroo court.

And I doubt the Senate will allow witnesses for the prosecution to be heard on an existing article of impeachment.

Bolton basically looks good, but has little downside and little chance he'll actually be called out.

 Bolton is offering information. If the senate says no testimony then Bolton goes straight to the press and publisher and I guess the Democrats can redo another impeachment.

I too wonder if the neocons are ready to wash their hands of Trump, in favor of their super puppet, Mike Pence.  I honestly can imagine anything worse, but I'll take a super puppet over a maniac, any day.
