Bolton claim about Pres. Trump may impact impeachment trial
WASHINGTON (AP) - The stakes over witness testimony at President Donald Trump's impeachment trial are rising now that a draft of a book from former national security adviser John Bolton appears to undercut a key defense argument.
Bolton writes in the forthcoming book that Trump told him that he wanted to withhold security aid from Ukraine until it helped him with politically charged investigations, including into Democratic rival Joe Biden.
Trump's legal team has repeatedly insisted that the Republican president never tied the suspension of military assistance to investigations into Biden and his son. The Trump defense continues when the trial resumes Monday afternoon.
