I'Ve said for some time that i hope to be able to hear from john bolton, i think, with a story that came out yesterday, it's increasingly apparent that it would be important to hear from john bolton iif course we'll make a final decision on witnesses. After we've heard from not only the prosecution but also the defense, but i think at this stage it's pretty fair to say that john bolton has a relev ...
nt testimony to provide to those of us who are sitting in impartial justice. It is you that the president did try to tie for you is that enough for to say that the president should be convicted for abuse of power. I can't begin to tell you how john bolton's testimony would ultimately play on a final decision, but it's relevant and therefore i'd like to hear it and what impact that might have would be dependent upon all the facts associated with it. We hear from obviously prosecution and defense as to what was relevant and what was said and how that might influence our final vote. But i can't begin to tell you how that would be resolved. I'M as i've indicated. I see myself as a senator juror and in that capacity i will maintain impartiality to the extent account senator have you spoken to. I think it's increasingly likely that other republicans will will join those of us who think we should hear from john bolton and whether there are other witnesses and documents. Well, that's another matter, but i think john bolton's relevance to our decision has been come, has become increasingly clear. I'M not gon na speak for any other republican, as senator as i have spoken with others who pined upon this as well.
