Impeachment defense, Day 2: The Bolton brouhaha

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The Bolton news made it all the more mystifying why the House did not pursue Bolton's testimony. More than three months have passed since it could have issued such a subpoena. The process might be nearly over at this point, with a decision expected soon. And the president would have been given a chance to defend the confidentiality of his relationship with his closest advisers. But the House chose not to act, leaving the issue to Senate Democrats. The defense team went ahead with its carefully-laid plan for Monday. Part of it was a recreating its strong performance on Saturday. Part was celebrity appearances by Kenneth Starr and Alan Dershowitz. The plan did not include John Bolton.
