John Bolton Will Not Show Up For House Inquiry Voluntarily

Former U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton has been summoned to testify in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

House of Representatives investigators has invited him to appear next month.

Mr. Trump has denied using the power of his office to pressure Ukraine to investigate former U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden and his son.

Mr. Bolton, who resigned his position after a fall out with President Trump reportedly, likened the President’s dealing with his Ukraine’s counterpart as that of a “drug deal.”

It is in doubt now whether Mr. Bolton will appear as scheduled on 7 November.

According to press reports, Bolton’s lawyer, Charles Cooper, has said that his client was not willing to appear voluntarily before the House committee members.

However, Cooper indicated that he was ready to accept a subpoena – or legal summons to compel testimony – on Mr. Bolton’s behalf.
