House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said Wednesday that House Democrats “likely” will issue a subpoena for testimony from former national security adviser John Bolton even if President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial ends with an acquittal.
Nadler, at a press conference on Wednesday, was asked if House Democrats were planning on continuing to investigate the president’s putting pressure on Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
“I think it’s likely, yes,” Nadler said, according to Newsweek. "When you have a lawless president, you have to bring that to the fore, you have to spotlight that, you have to protect the constitution, whatever the political consequences."
He added that the committee would want Bolton to testify about Ukraine and on their other investigations into the Trump administration, including alleged violations of the Emoluments Clauses in the Constitution.
“We are talking about everything,” the congressman said.
When asked if House Democrats could receive a backlash for continuing to investigate, Nadler said, "As more and more lawlessness comes out, I presume the public will understand that."
The Senate voted against issuing a subpoena for Bolton’s testimony last week, and the final vote in the trial is expected on Wednesday.
