    Any witness defying a judges order to testify can be held in contempt and jailed until he/she complies with the order. I like to see who will break the law and who won’t hold them in contempt.

    President Donald Trump abused the power of his office by strong-arming Ukraine, a vulnerable ally, holding up hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid until it agreed to help him influence the 2020 election by digging up dirt on a political rival. When caught in the act, he rejected the very idea that a president could be required by Congress to explain and justify his actions…asserting a form of monarchical immunity that Congress cannot let stand.

    Bolton is what he appears to be, a liar and a coward. This is the Republican way. Fortunately it no longer matters. Come election day 2020 the lights will go out on the twisted empty Republicans. PERMANENTLY. It will all be over well before dinner time. Republicans have done little more than smear their excrement on the walls for a generation. We've had it. We're tired of cleaning up their messes, tired of turning the other cheek. Tired of their dead weight and fetid odor. END THE REPULSIVE AND UNNECESSARY UNAMERICAN REPUBLICAN CLOWNS

    All full of 💩- all criminals – no justice – government not doing its job – most getting paid by big companies and rich – it don’t matter if your democratic or republicans- greed and power hungry – middle class drowning- racism on the rise- entitlement and mean demanding people – no one outrage just couple of Christian writers, the news covering wrong story. No more 1960’s justice – just air

    By directing witnesses to NOT testify, trump is obstructing justice – it is illegal…..so Bolton had no case to start with because trump's directive was invalid…..period.

    John Bolton has always been a dangerous man who never suffers the consequences of his profligate and irresponsible actions. Any guy who is into starting wars has some serious problems. Sicko.

  39. Ryan Anderson
    Ryan Anderson January 4, 2020

    Isn't it a law that people can't make money off of writing a book that is about their personal crimes? Pretty sure it is. Bolton should be stripped of any profits from his book about his own illegal actions relating to Ukraine.

    frodofraggins January 4, 2020

    OK. This is biased. Bolton's concerns aren't alleviated as the dems cowardly withdrew the subpoena. This means they never used the courts to settle the issue. The court case would be reopened the moment that person was subpoenad again. The House was afraid they would lose the case and thus confirm that the president's claims were legal. So they just avoided it altogether.

    This case was far bigger than ANY election cycle, but the dems want to protect their jobs.
