"President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he’s opposed to the former national security adviser, John Bolton, testifying in his impeachment trial because "it’s a national security problem.”
"He knows some of my thoughts," Trump told reporters. "He knows what I think about leaders. What happens if he reveals how I feel about another leader and it’s not positive … it would make the job a lot harder."
Trump’s statement, however, underscores why Democrats believe Bolton’s testimony is crucial: he "knows some of" Trump’s thoughts.
The president’s comments came just hours before opening arguments are set to kick off in his Senate trial — only the third in US history. Trump was impeached last month for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Bolton announced this month that he’s willing to testify in the impeachment trial and is a firsthand witness to the president’s efforts to strongarm Ukraine into pursuing investigations that would be politically beneficial to him while withholding vital military aid and a White House meeting that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky desperately sought."
