(NewsReady.com) – President Trump’s impeachment trial has wrapped up and he was acquitted of all charges. It isn’t over, though. Democrats are indicating that they won’t let former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s potential testimony go unheard.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) told reporters about his reasoning, saying America has a lawless president.

Nadler also wants Bolton to talk about issues outside of the Ukraine situation. House Democrats have issued other congressional probes about the president’s actions. They believe that Trump has committed more wrongdoings that warrant the public’s attention.
Bolton stated he was willing to testify during the impeachment trial, however, a vote was held to prevent new testimonies or pieces of evidence from being introduced. Most senators believe it’s an unnecessary distraction and a way to prolong an impeachment inquiry that wasn’t fully investigated.
