Schiff Thinks Congress Should Again Call Bolton to Testify
John Bolton has long hinted that he saw Donald Trump do improper things while he served as the President’s National Security Adviser. The long-time Conservative, however, refused a call to testify during Trump’s impeachment trail. Bolton instead chose to monetize his experience by writing a book.
Now that book is out and a number of sections are likely to be unfavorable to Trump. Adam Schiff, the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, says he and other chairs are considering again calling Bolton to testify.
Schiff made the comments during an appearance on Meet the Press. The California congressman remarked, “Like the rest of the country, we will look at what allegations like those involving Turkey and other countries, particularly involving China, need to be fleshed out and exposed to the light of day and then we’ll make our decisions.”
We all know Donald Trump is unfit for office.
Bolton's book just reinforces Trump's clear pattern of misconduct:
Trump will always put himself above the national interest.

The House Intelligence chair continued:
“But, you know, we do need I think to expose the length and breadth of this president’s depravity and how much it is endangering the country. So those facts are going to need to come out and we are discussing with the Speaker and my fellow chairs just how to do that.”
Schiff then talked about why it’s important to look into Bolton’s allegations. “A lot of it is not a surprise,” he said, “but at the same time, exposure of this president’s misconduct is the best way to protect the country. Congress can take steps to protect the country.”
