Former White House chief of staff John Kelly is weighing in again on impeachment, now saying if there are no witnesses — which seems almost all but certain — that "it’s a job only half done."
"If I was advising the United States Senate, I would say, 'If you don’t respond to 75 percent of the American voters and have witnesses, it’s a job only half done,” Kelly said today in an interview with a New Jersey newspaper. “You open yourself up forever as a Senate that shirks its responsibilities.”
Kelly described Bolton as “a copious note taker."
Earlier this week: Kelly said he believes John Bolton' allegation that President Trump told the former national security adviser that US security aid to Ukraine was conditioned on an investigation of the President's political rivals, adding that Bolton should be heard from.
"If John Bolton says that in the book I believe John Bolton," Kelly said Monday night when asked about the leaked draft manuscript during remarks at the Ringling College Library Association Town Hall lecture series, according to the Herald Tribune of Sarasota, Florida.
Kelly said Bolton "always gave the President the unvarnished truth" and is a "man of integrity and great character."
