Thom Tillis, a Republican senator up for re-election, said “not at this point” when asked if the John Bolton report changes his views on witnesses.
Asked why he doesn’t want to hear from Bolton, Tillis said:
“Spend a little time on what you heard on Saturday and check back with me,” a likely reference to the defense team's case.
About Bolton's book: President Trump in August told Bolton that he wanted to continue holding military aid to Ukraine until the country helped with investigations into Democrats — including former Vice President Joe Biden — the New York Times reported Sunday, citing multiple people's descriptions of an unpublished draft manuscript by Bolton.
A source with direct knowledge of the manuscript told CNN the New York Times' telling of Bolton's account of the Ukraine aid hold discussion with Trump is accurate.
