House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler warns that even if Trump gets acquitted in the Senate, that doesn’t mean that’s the end of the investigation into Ukrainian affairs.
And So The Saga Continues?
Nadler told reporters that investigations into Trump’s dealings with Ukraine will likely continue and that one of the top people on his list to interview is former National Security Adviser John Bolton.
Bolton was terminated from his position last fall after continuous clashes with the president and his administration over matters of foreign policy, later on being requested by Democrats as a witness in the impeachment inquiry, because he referred to the dealings in Ukraine as a “drug deal,” although he did not cooperate.
Nadler, however, said “yeah” when asked by reporters about whether or not his committee or other investigate committees would subpoena Bolton, indicating that everything’s already been approved of by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Despite that, the only time Bolton ever said he would testify is if he was subpoenaed by the Senate during the trial, although that’s impossible at this point, as the Democrats’ opportunity to bring forward more witnesses and documents was shut down by the GOP majority last week and Trump was acquitted yesterday on the two counts before the Senate, ending the trial. It’s unclear whether or not Bolton would agree to cooperate should he be subpoenaed by Nadler or other committees.
