Schumer Statement On Need To Subpoena Witnesses And Key Documents In Senate Impeachment Trial

January 6, 2020

Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement after former National Security Advisor John Bolton issued a statement saying he would testify in the Senate impeachment trial, if he is subpoenaed:

“Momentum for uncovering the truth in a Senate trial continues. John Bolton correctly acknowledged that he needs to comply with a Senate subpoena to compel his testimony, if issued. It is now up to four Senate Republicans to support bringing in Mr. Bolton, and the other three witnesses, as well as the key documents we have requested to ensure all the evidence is presented at the onset of a Senate trial. Given that Mr. Bolton’s lawyers have stated he has new relevant information to share, if any Senate Republican opposes issuing subpoenas to the four witnesses and documents we have requested they would make absolutely clear they are participating in a cover up.”
