Trump suggests executive privilege if Bolton is subpoenaed by Senate

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump suggested in a Fox News interview Friday that he would invoke executive privilege if former national security adviser John Bolton was subpoenaed for the Senate impeachment trial.

Bolton said earlier this week that he is “prepared to testify” in the trial – if he’s subpoenaed by the Republican-controlled chamber. 

“I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify,” Bolton stated

Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham asked the president in an interview whether he would block Bolton from testifying.

“You can’t be in the White House as president — future, I’m talking about future, any future presidents — and have a security adviser, anybody having to do with security, and legal, and other things,” Trump said.
