Bowing to pressure from moderate GOP senators, senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has announced the senate will allow Michael Bolton to be called as a witness in President Trump’s impeachment trial. Lindsay Graham conceded that the senate should hear from Bolton but added that Bolton is a “democratic” witness and asks that the defense team cross-examine Bolton to assess his truthfulness, citing Bolton’s 1993 hit song “Said I Loved You But I Lied”.
When asked about the move to allow Bolton to testify in the trial, Representative Adam Schiff said that he was “heartened that the GOP members of the senate now accept the importance of allowing a witness with direct knowledge of President Trump’s intent in withholding military aid to the Ukraine. John Bolton is – wait what? Michael Bolton? WTF? No!”
Senator Mitch McConnell responded to Representative Schiff’s comments with a brief statement: “No backsies.”
