Impeachment Trial highlights: Bolton takes center stage from afar

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former national security adviser John Bolton took center stage at President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial even though he was nowhere near the Capitol.

Bolton’s claims in a forthcoming book that Trump told him he wanted to withhold security aid from Ukraine until it investigated political rival Joe Biden ramped up pressure on GOP senators to call Bolton to testify.

Trump has tweeted that he never told Bolton such a thing.

Also highlighting Monday’s session of the trial, Biden’s son Hunter also faced scrutiny over his job with a Ukrainian energy company while his father was vice president.
