John Bolton, President Donald Trump's former National Security Advisor, said in a statement on Monday that he would testify if subpoenaed by the Senate for the impeachment trial of President Trump.
"Since my testimony is once again at issue, I have had to resolve the serious competing issues as best I could, based on careful consideration and study," Bolton wrote in a statement on the website John Bolton PAC. "I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify."
Bolton was fired by Trump in September, after he and the president reportedly disagreed about efforts to reach a peace agreement with the Taliban.
President Donald Trump disavowed a controversial remark made by his national security adviser, John Bolton, as he appeared increasingly eager Thursday to preserve a historic one-on-one meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un scheduled for next month.
