Much has been said about the possibility of getting Bolton to testify. I look at it this way. If he testifies and says nothing bad about the president, it would add to the embarrassment of the dummycrats. If he does say something bad about the president, it is still highly unlikely that he’ll be removed from office. Worst case, he was doing something presidents do and should do. He is the chief law enforcement officer of the nation. After all, didn’t Obama have Trump investigated? Didn’t Clinton use her position to smear candidate Trump? Didn’t the FBI director clear her of all wrong.
Moreover, and most important, didn’t Biden admit guilt before the whole world on a video? Did he not have the prosecutor of Ukraine fired in six hours? Does such a thing deserve no investigation?
Bottom line, whether Bolton testifies or not, there will likely be little or no difference. I once read some very wise words that I believe apply. If it doesn’t matter, then it doesn’t matter.
As a side note, if they go into calling witnesses, there are two things that will be true.
- nothing will be passed by the Senate until the trial is over, possibly Till may or June. (I doubt it will go longer. After all, 1/3 of of the senators do face reelection.)
- those senators are going to get awfully tired of just sitting there twiddling there thumbs (or whatever they use to fight off the boredom) while they listen to the dummycrats spin their lies.
