(AP) – The latest in Washington in regards to President Trump’s Impeachment[AM1] Trial is
that[AM2] John Bolton, former National Security Advisor, plans to testify[AM3] . New allegations from him took attention on
the suspected corruption in Ukraine. This past Wednesday fellow senators asked
almost 100 different questions ranging from executive power all the way to
having the authority to pick and choose their witnesses to call to the stand.
An article from NBC News, added information regarding the questioning as well as the chosen witnesses. Republicans this news comes as a shock to Congress and not in the presidential schedule. However, to Democrats this is a long awaited trial of investigation.
Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, does not plan to go down without a fight. Some use the phrase Pelosi is “going all in on President Trump”. In a recent article Pelosi states, “apart from declaring war this is the most important thing that the Congress can do.” Pelosi feels that it is her job not only as a citizen of this country but as a member of Congress to do what is right in regards to President Trump’s Impeachment Trial.
Pelosi has worked for politics for decades, but it has been reported that her last year in Congress has been hands down the more challenging and more consequential. She is going up against the most powerful man in the United States. Some call her crazy and some call her a hero.
The latest on this on-going story and investigation is the fact that Trump’s defense has shifted to not “impeachable” even if facts are proven true. Despite the full force Democrats have put forward to find all possible witnesses to this investigation, Republicans have focused bringing this Impeachment Trial to a vote. This voting could occur in as little as a few days and will put an end to this entire investigation. Even with new revelations from the former National Security advisor it just may have come a little too late and this topic might have been going on long enough.
We will stay updated for any new advances in this story as well as to see what Democrats will do next.
