Trump misstates the record on John Bolton

Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP) ó President Donald Trump stated falsely Monday that House Democrats never called his former national security adviser to testify in their impeachment inquiry. Actually they did.

Trumpís tweet about John Bolton came as the Senate enters the second week of the impeachment trial and followed a fresh disclosure that Bolton claims Trump told him directly that he wanted to withhold hundreds of millions of dollars in security aid from Ukraine until it helped with investigations into Joe Biden and Democrats.

Boltonís assertion, in his forthcoming book, contradicts key assertions by Trump and his defense teamís argument that there is no evidence the president conditioned aid to Ukraine on an investigation of his political rivals. The disclosure prompted Trump to strike out on Twitter, where he misrepresented what happened in the impeachment inquiry.

As well, in their opening defense arguments on the weekend, Trumpís attorneys perpetuated a baseless claim that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election as they argued that Trump had good reason to withhold military aid to the country.

10. In a few days Trump will have never heard of or met John Bolton.

I take photos with lots of people. Lots. Maybe this John character, whoever he is, was at my inauguration, it was so huge, do you remember how huge it was?
