WHAT DO THEY HAVE IN COMMON?
They both worked with Trump at the most Senior levels and have been asked by Congress to testify. They both were ordered by Trump not to testify. They both now say they will ONLY do so IF they are ordered by a Judge to do so in response to a subpoena.
And, now Bolton has asked a Judge to tell him what to do as he does NOT want to testify and Mulvaney has now also asked to join that case. The practical effect of that would be a normal judicial proceeding which after appeals etc. could take a year to become final, by which time the 2020 election may have come and gone.
Now the Congress says –thanks we do not need you after all, but you are welcome to come, and we will squeeze you in.
They have in common that they both have attempted to obstruct justice and could be fined or jailed.
Will they now try to correct the obstruction charge by coming after all and testifying under oath?
Big boys playing little boys’ games with our democratic system.
Aren’t we are all owed something better!!??
