Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) called for former National Security Adviser John Bolton to testify before a House committee after he announced this week that he was willing to testify before the Senate.
Bolton claimed on Monday that he would testify in front of the Senate if he was subpoenaed.
But Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) claimed that Bolton should not be allowed to testify before the Senate because he never testified during the House impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump.
Now, Khanna will try to get a subpoena to get Bolton to testify in front of a House committee.
“Now that John Bolton has said that he is open to testifying in the Senate, there’s no argument for why he shouldn’t testify from the House,” Khanna told MSNBC on Tuesday. “And it would help counter Rubio’s argument that we can’t consider [Bolton’s] testimony if the House doesn’t consider it.”
“We ought to do it,” he continued. “And we ought to get Bolton in here this week or next week and let the country hear what he has to say.”
Khanna said that Democratic lawmakers in the House are discussing a subpoena for Bolton.
“Bolton now is not going to have an excuse to avoid that testimony,” he said, “but it is something that is being discussed among colleagues.”
