Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump in August told his then-national security adviser John 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former Vice President Joe Biden -- the New York Times reported Sunday, citing multiple people's descriptions of an unpublished draft manuscript by Bolton.

They didn't do it because the full House never voted for impeachment, so Trump was free to shred any letters requesting (not subpoenas) to testify.
OK NYTIMES, let us unload on the laundry machine.
Boltons spokesman already disputes this. This is fake news.
As reflected in the transcript, right John?
I don’t care if Trump DID exactly what they’re accusing him of. Ukraine was obviously in the tank for Hillary & interfering in our elections. Their oligarchs bought off Biden by giving his son a cushy job with a big payout. Obvious corruption, still not fully investigated by those who ought to be doing it.
Why, why, WHY aren’t the Republicans making a BIG, BIG deal of this?! They ought to be demanding ALL of the Bidens being interrogated, along with Alexandra Chalupa & a host of others. The Stupid Party strikes again.
Bolton heard it from Hillary, who heard it from Chalupa who heard it from Comey, who spied on a conversation with Sonenburg who presumed it.
Is that how Bolton is going to be paid off by the Dems? It will have to be a lot because no republicans will buy his book or be willing to wemploy him.
I guess he could always lick the boots of the creeps at CNN.
No do not let him testify how much of a warning shot do you need?
Just on time! Wow, DRAFT manuscript that was submitted to the White House for review suddenly appears in the NYSlimes the day before Day 2 of the defense.....shocking.
I posted something like this weeks ago:
“a last minute leak from the NYTs or Wash Post from “sources” about John Bolton a few days before the vote for witnesses”
And no one else knew about it, how strange considering the programmatics behind such an endeavor. It smells like a LIE or a presumption.
Multiple people equals demonic last minute crap.
I trust Milt to always be a down the line douchebag.
Fake news, rinse and repeat...
Mslsd went to it for 10 minutes and then pivited away to kobie and butigig.
Actually the Times story said that Bolton claimed that Trump PREFERRED that Ukraine conduct investigations. However, aid was provided. You can’t impeach for having a THOUGHT.
Pal, you need to brush up on the Constitution.
