“John Bolton may be an author, but he is not a patriot,” said Schiff. “During the removal from office, staff members of John Bolton were called to testify on President Trump’s abuse of power. And they did. They had a lot to lose and showed real courage when their country needed it. “
Despite these criticisms, Schiff said that Bolton’s allegations were “very serious” and deserved to be considered as “part of Trump’s persistent scheme to abuse his position and abuse government powers American to seek personal and political benefits from foreign governments. ”
“We will continue to hold Trump accountable and work to expose his abuses and corruption. Over the next few days, we will be consulting with the President and other presidents on the next steps, “said Schiff.
If Schiff and the President of the Chamber Nancy Pelosi deciding to call Bolton to testify could create a sensational spectacle of a former senior government official publicly reprimanding the president as voters elect to re-elect him.
“History will judge those Republicans who sought to protect Trump, harshly. He will severely try those who refused to testify when others have come forward. And he will judge Donald Trump the most severe of all. “
