Nadler Says House Democrats Are 'Not Interested' in Hearing Testimony From John Bolton

Share

Former National Security Advisor John Bolton says House Democrats should have investigated President Donald Trump for more than just his dealings in Ukraine.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) was asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper during an interview on “State of the Union” on Sunday, if the House would call Bolton to testify.

“No, we’re not interested in Bolton’s testimony,” Nadler responded.

He continued to say that Democrats believe Trump could have been impeached “on other grounds” such as an obstruction of justice charge.

“We chose to keep it simple, and Bolton who has — as we now know — that he could have offered and refused to offer — is certainly no one to talk,” Nadler added.

When asked if Nadler had completely ruled out calling Bolton to testify in the future, due to his decision against testifying during the impeachment process, Nadler said, “We may, but we’ll see about that.”

“I think the president has done a lot of impeachable things, including what Bolton’s talking about,” Nadler said when asked about the potential for a future impeachment effort.

However, he noted the presidential election is just months away, and impeachment would be “waste of time and effort.”

Bolton’s new book, “The Room Where It Happened,” is set to be released on Tuesday, June 23, and is said to detail “Trump’s Ukraine-like transgressions” which “existed across the full range of his foreign policy.”
