Cooper referred to statements that House legislators had heard in recent weeks from numerous government officials and professional diplomats as they investigated whether President Donald Trump abused his power by putting pressure on Ukraine to investigate the former vice president Joe Biden.
The president's allies also conditioned the military aid and a meeting of the White House, at which Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky complied with his demands testify behind closed doors, but he could not appear for his planned deposit on Thursday. His lawyer said Bolton was willing to give testimony, but only if a judge decides that he is right to oppose a White House letter instructing all administrators not to comply with the impeachment investigation is Trump's most dangerous so far. especially as the impeachment investigation enters the public phase this week.
As a former national security adviser, Bolton would be the most respected official to testify against the president.
] According to media reports and news reports, Bolton was furious with the involvement of Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and with US Ambassador Gordon Sondland, in the conduct of a campaign called a shadow campaign for foreign policy in Ukraine.
Fiona Hill, the former high-ranking director of the White House for Russian and Eurasian Affairs, told lawmakers that Bolton called Giuliani a "hand grenade" that would "blow up everyone."  659008] Bolton was also a key participant in a White House meeting on July 10, during which Sondland stressed to Ukrainian officials that they should provide Trump with the investigation he wanted.
Hill stated that Bolton abruptly cut short the meeting when Sondland raised the issue and promptly called on Hill to inform John Eisenberg, the top National Security Council (NSC) lawyer, about the events. He also told Hill to tell Eisenberg that he was not part of the "drug deal," that Trond's Sondland and other Trump allies in Ukraine "forge ahead" of history than what is already public. And according to Axios, there are receipts in Bolton's case.
Current and former high-ranking government officials told the news agency that people in Trump's orbit are afraid of what Bolton has documented and what he may reveal. According to Axios, Bolton is a prolific co-writer and probably has more details than any other witness in the recent impeachment investigation into Trump's shadow campaign in Ukraine.
"Bolton was an insatiable coder in every session." Source, who attended several meetings with the former National Security Advisor, told Axios. Apparently Bolton, while others sat at meetings with the President and listened, "distinguished himself by filling in notes with contemporary notes about what was said in the room" and actions. Don McGahn, the former White House attorney, told former Special Adviser Robert Mueller that the President was often upset when he discovered McGahn wrote down what was said in their sessions saying after a meeting. "I never had a lawyer who took notes."
McGahn replied that he took notes because he was a "real lawyer" and made these notes a written record and was not a bad thing.
Trump then said he & # 39; d "had many great lawyers, like Roy Cohn," McGahn said. "He did not take notes."
McGahn ultimately proved to be the most damaging witness to Trump in Muller's Obstruction Case.
Bolton could now enter this role as congressional legislators examine whether to trigger a trial that could lead to Trump resigning.
