Sen. John Kennedy, a Republican from Louisiana, suggested he was suspicious of John Bolton’s letter today, volunteering to testify under subpoena.
“He just seems awfully anxious to testify,” Kennedy told reporters.
The senator added that “most rational people would want to avoid getting pulled into the middle of this sequel to Pulp Fiction.”
As he went to an evening vote on the Senate floor, Kennedy repeated his suspicions about Bolton’s timing. But he offered no evidence or explanation for his suspicions.
He said he didn’t expect Bolton would ever testify, even if enough votes turned up to subpoena him.
“I fully expect President Trump ... to claim executive privilege,” Kennedy said. “So we're right back to square one.”
