Bolton says he was so alarmed by Trump's determination to do favors for autocrats such as Erdogan and Xi that he scheduled a meeting with Attorney General William P. Barr in 2019 to discuss his behavior. Bolton writes that Barr agreed he also was worried about the appearances created by the president's behavior.

Immediately after the meeting ended, Barr told Trump everything that had happened, then Barr destroyed the cure for AIDS, the vaccine for COVID-19, and burned down a Boeing hangar full of orphan children, disabled puppies, and the original US Constitution.

He could have, and should have, testified.  This is true.  In normal times that should have been the proper thing to do, but realistically, no matter what happened during the impeachment process, there was no possibility, whatsoever, that there would have been 67 votes in the Senate for removal.  If Mr. Moustache gets to sell some books in a way that also makes it more likely that Trump actually gets removed from office come January, I can live with that.

You can't "scandal" this asshole into submission or resignation.

Blame the Senate Republicans (especially Moscow Mitch), who refused to even pretend to do his damn job, thereby giving him the green light to do whatever the fark he wants.

Hell isn't nice enough for them.


The Democrats share blame in this. They could have subpoenaed Bolton, Trump, Barr, or Pompeo, but they chose to play a game with the GOP Senate instead. After they realized that the GOP wasn't going to play the game by the rules the Dems should have gone back to the House and and gone nuts on subpoenas and lawsuits. Instead they tucked their tail between their legs and whimpered out "vote" as they scurried away back to the House.

The reason they chose not to go that route is because they would be waiting on those subpoenas to be litigated until well after the election.

Probably, but that shouldn't matter. They shouldn't stop seeking justice because it's too inconvenient, or might take too long. These people have information that is vital to the choices that most American's are going to make in November, they should pursue it and not stop. You know damn well that the GOP wouldn't let lawsuits stop them from their political investigations, why should Democrats stop in their criminal investigations.


They didn't stop seeking justice. They made a choice on having the impeachment this year or effectively not having an impeachment.  If every major witness would be slow-walked until after the election, how does that help voters before the election?
