Certainly damning if accurate - but I disagree that a witness testimony should be enough to impeach a president. That really isn't any more than 'he said, she said'. People lie. We can all 'assume' who is lying (either Trump or Bolton), but there needs to be corroborating evidence to confirm that was the reason to hold the aid back for my vote to be yes on impeachment.

I feel the same way in court hearings for anyone else as well. I absolutely disagree that someone should be able to be convicted on witness testimony alone. I don't care if a dozen people say they saw some one rob a bank - unless there is corroborating evidence to agree to the testimony, I don't think they should be able to convict anyone.
Besides witnesses, we ( and the Senate) should demand the release all the documents the house asked for. And then decide.

The other disturbing thing I saw over the weekend is all the super PACs putting pressure on moderate Democrats and Republicans, saying they're gonna put money into the races for their rivals if they don't vote to suppress witnesses .
The super pac money is out of control.
Why is some super PAC based in Washington DC threatening to affect the Senate race in the state of Maine?
