John Bolton would consider testifying against Attorney General William Barr if House Democrats were to call him, he told The Washington Post in an interview Tuesday.

"I'll certainly consider it if and when it comes up and consult with my lawyers and try and do the right thing," Bolton told The Post's Robert Costa in a virtual interview. 

The House Judiciary Committee is preparing to subpoena AG Barr in an investigation into the firing of Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman last weekend.

"You know I'd rather not get into a hypothetical about that," Bolton told Costa. "Let's see what they do. The way they mishandled the impeachment inquiry gives me pause, I have to say — especially in light of the circumstances of things that President [Donald] Trump has done to prevent the book itself from being from being published."

Bolton admits speaking out against Trump's actions during a presidential campaign is his way to try and undo Dems' "mistake" of not only not deterring him with an impeachment that fizzled in the Senate, but also but "enabling" him going forward.

"And I thought that was a mistake," Bolton said, describing their actions as "virtue signaling."

"Jumping off the cliff with them was not only a mistake, but whatever else I would have had to say would have gotten lost in the shuffle of their mistakes," he added. "I think that's to be regretted."
