Senators brace for the unknown as Trump impeachment defense wraps



 A sense of uncertainty hung over the Capitol Tuesday as President Donald Trump’s impeachment finale arrived.

It’s the last uninterrupted chance for his lawyers to persuade senators to summarily reject the House’s case for his removal — without the drama that would result from demanding new evidence. But it arrived amid creeping anxiety that new revelations, like the one late Sunday from former national security adviser John Bolton that exploded a core premise of Trump’s defense, could be in store.

Donald Trump’s False Tweet on Bolton

Donald Trump falsely claimed in a tweet that the House Democrats “never even asked John Bolton to testify” in their impeachment inquiry. The Democrats asked, but Bolton refused to voluntarily appear.

Trump tweeted about Bolton, his former national security adviser, early on the morning of Jan. 27 — not long after the New York Times reported that Trump told Bolton he wanted to freeze security aid to Ukraine until it agreed to investigate the Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden. The Times cited people who had read drafts of a manuscript for Bolton’s book as its source and said Bolton’s lawyer blamed the White House for disclosing the book’s content.
