Trump's lawyers and Senate Republicans are working privately to ensure John Bolton does not testify publicly, WaPo reports.

One option being discussed would be to move Bolton's testimony to a classified setting, ensuring that it's not public.

A PERFECT CALL deserves...

{*checks notes*}

...closed-door testimony falsely declared classified and placed under lock and key so no one ever sees it or hears about it
 
The only senator mentioned in this story is McConnell. The other senators who are conspiring with the White House to conceal evidence must be NAMED.

They should be questioned on camera: "Why are you already violating the sacred oath you just took to do impartial justice?"
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
That's funny because if Trump was innocent, Trump would want John Bolton to testify.
 
This is what a cover-up looks like.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
The Mob Boss is using the FULL Power of US Presidency & US Congress... Trump will keep Abusing his Power & Committing Crimes IN PLAIN SIGHT....until he Faces Real Accountability & Consequences!

Do innocent people do this?
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
But but but Bolton would exonerate Trump bc this is just a witch hunt? How odd they don’t want him to testify 🤔
 
What are the Republicans trying to hide from the American people?
 
This is what senators act like when they absolutely believe a president is guilty of crimes worthy of removing him from office, but don't care because political power & party matters more than their oaths of office.

They aren't confused. Don't infantilise them.
 
 
 
Bolton would destroy Trump. Why else would Trump and Senate Republicans do this?
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Republicans are painting themselves into a corner from which there will be no escape.
 
If true that's such bullshit because there's literally no point in doing it behind closed doors. The republicans aren't going to listen to any amount of evidence anyway. Its trying to beat a wall in a game of tennis. The point is to do it publicly so the people can hear it all.

Maybe Maddow could get him to pull a Parnas?

This is not transparency. This is not America.

Folks, I think the House needs to impeach Donald Trump again. The levels to which he is obstructing justice is ludicrous. From witness tampering of former Cabinet officials to jury tampering with members of the Senate, this entire trial is going to be a giant rigged affair. pic.twitter.com/3EFBUDejKJ
 
REMINDER: Call your Senators. 202-224-3121

We want
- witnesses
- documents
- full and fair trial, by daylight

No #CoverUp!
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
As it should be. The President‘s Executive Privilege needs to be protected from these unhinged lunatics
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Cover up at the highest levels of government
 
They know, thanks to Fox, they can say one thing and do another. Every time. Scream unfair, no witnesses, then block witnesses. Base gobbles it up. It's a losing battle until they are out of power. If they are ever out of power again that is.

WHAT HAPPENED TO CONFIDENTIALITY BETWEEN A PRESIDENT AND HIS ADVISORS? ARE THEY NOW GOING TO GO AFTER LAWYER CLIENT CONFIDENTIALITY? DEMOCRATS HATE DEMOCRACY AND WANT TO DO AWAY WITH OUR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC AS SET UP BY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS! ENOUGH ALREADY!
 
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
They are really acting as if Trump is guilty. And Pence.Really really really.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND A FAIR IMPEACHMENT TRIAL WITH WITNESSES AND COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY! 69% OF AMERICANS WANT WITNESSES & 51% WANT HIM REMOVED!
 
McConnell is working hard to cover-up Trump's crimes.
 
It’s funny, because if Trump was soo innocent, he’d have Bolton, Pompeo, and Mulvaney testify and provide exculpatory material.

This is a completely #RiggedTrial, and the @GOP will pay for this in November.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Do it. It will leak anyway and GOP will have to explain how they could ignore this testimony from the INSIDE
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Senators are working to rig the trial.
 
If you've ever wanted to know what government corruption looks like, it's literally this.

Vote every republican rep out of office.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Remember when Republicans "stormed" a secure room in House to "protest" having public hearings?
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Let's have a open and fair trial with witnesses.

As innocent people who want to exonerate themselves do...
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
There's a reason 51% of Americans want Trump removed from office .. the corruption out of the Trump @WhiteHouse and @GOP is unprecedented @realDonaldTrump @senatemajldr @MittRomney @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski @SenateGOP
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
I say go for it, try and hide all you can, kiss Trump's a$$ all the way. The truth will come out eventually.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Innocent people do not behave this way!
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
If the @SenateGOP choose to hide evidence, the evidence and testimony will be released by journalists. There's no hiding place Senate GOP. Either do your job or lose your job! #MoreLevidence
 
The defense says the defendant “did nothing wrong.”

There is a eye-witness who knows exactly what happened.

If they are so confident their client did nothing wrong, why not Bolton testify‽ Publicly?

RT to cross examine @JaySekulow.
 
I’m starting to think that this call may not have been so perfect after all.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
All these extreme efforts to keep witnesses from testifying reveal that the corruption and criminality are far worse than we have imagined.
 
can anyone envision a scenario in which trying to do this isn't actively protecting the president from damaging truths?
 
This shows better than anything that the WH and Trump’s allies in the Senate know they can’t block Bolton’s testimony by asserting executive privilege. Something else would be needed. But arguing that the testimony should be classified is a real stretch. They’re desperate.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Is Roberts going to stop this charade and make the senate GOP play by fair rules and valid witnesses??? Seriously. He has the legal right to- please this is beyond bad
 
How many stories on @POTUS has @washingtonpost either had to correct or retract?

#FakeNews
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
I seem to remember Republicans in the House complaining about this exact thing
 
If Bolton's testimony would prove Trump's innocence, the GOP would want his testimony up front and prime time. #CoverupMitch doesn't want Americans to hear it or see it. The GOP is as corrupt & complicit as Trump.

I bet Bolton won't like it if they mess up his book deal. Bolton should have testified sooner in the House, he could have told all & put it in the book too & we would have bought it. If he doesn't testify fully - as did Fiona Hill & Amb. Yovanovitch, I won't buy the book.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Of course. But I DO want Bolton to testify on the record. We’ll find out.
 
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
If a young man can be arrested for oversleeping & missing jury duty, why can’t these weak men, running our country, working FOR THE PEOPLE, be arrested for ignoring lawful subpoenas that could open a window to truth? Why hide testimony & documents? Because they’re ALL guilty!
 
Trump must be really regretting not giving Bolton his war with Iran.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Obstruction everywhere you look. @SenateGOP are not interested in the truth or saving America.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Every part of the #SenateTrial must be public.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Seems we’ve moved beyond this - “I am not part of whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney are cooking up,”
 
Bolton get some balls and do the right thing
 
 
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
They are scared to death about what he will say
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Mitch will be ok if Dems break in to the secure area, right?
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
If they do, House Democrats should read it from the House floor a la speech and debate clause.
 
Again: Why do they think he'd even tell the truth? It's not like they haven't already been lying under oath with very little repercussion so why worry now?
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
I guess Trump, his lawyers, Moscow Mitch and his Senate henchmen haven't seen the CNN poll? Good. I hope this "trial" is the nail in their collective coffins.
 
They’re scared of John Bolton.
 
I'm old enough to remember when the GOP threw an enormous tantrum over evidence being discussed in a SCIF.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
This is unacceptable whether you support Trump or not. #documentsandwitnesses
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
They are deathly afraid of Bolton.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
If Bolton was a real patriot, he’ll go on tv just like Parnass and tell all with receipts.. but this administration only brought on traitors that serve Putin
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Maybe it is time for Bolton to interview with Rachel Maddow.
 
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Everything to protect this incompetent, criminal, buffoon.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
What does he have to hide?
 
Maybe they just don't want to spoil his book
 
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Bolton will not do anything to help a Democrat win the Presidency in 2020. He has the goods & could have done what other’s did, ignore trump, testify before the House Intelligence Committee & put country before party. He did not & that leads me to believe he would not now.
 
Why?? I thought trump had nothing to worry about!!
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Hey, @realDonaldTrump, your "most transparent president ever", is showing again! What are you afraid of, if you're so damn innocent?! Many people are asking!!
 
Bolton testifying publicly would topple Trump. They are afraid.#coverup
 
Bolton should testify bc it is his Duty as a citizen to do so. His book means Nothing without his public testimony.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Yeah, mustn’t risk any truth leaking out. Cowards
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
What are they hiding?
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Because that’s what innocent people do. #RemoveandIndictTrump
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
"Trump's lawyers working with MEMBERS OF THE JURY for his impeachment trial to ensure John Bolton does not testify publicly...." Seems legit.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Maybe Barr can give us a summary of Bolton’s testimony, he’s good at summaries. #ImpeachBarr
 
In reply to @AmbJohnBolton
@AmbJohnBolton should testify in the congress. Do not be silent and let Trump destroy our democracy. #BoltonMustTestify
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
The so very unusual midnight hearings of Trump’s case will happen within 24 hours.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Profiles in courage...
 
In reply to @hardball
@hardball @maddow All this maneuvering to protect an innocent man. 🙄😣😏 #Hardball #Maddow
 
 
NUMBER ONE in the Universe
Anyone know why Trump refuses to have first hand eyewitness Bolton testify? Bolton was right in the middle of it & saw/heard everything. Couldn't he verify Trump's "perfect" conduct and exonerate him? .@realDonaldTrump ? 🤔
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Guilt, guilt, guilt equals the GOP.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
In other words. trump is guilty AF!
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
So afraid of the truth!
 
 
After all of the GOP tantrums about testimonies In the SCIF? 🙄
