President Donald Trump has repeatedly used his bully pulpit to attack, threaten and discredit witnesses who could testify against him.
Here are my takeaways:
Trump’s lawyers cannot, and did not, defend him on the facts.
Their defense has evolved to this: he did it, so what?
His lawyers strengthened our case that the Senate must hear from Bolton.
A fair trial requires key witnesses. Will America have one?

Jay Sekulow seems unaware that he is now waiving whatever executive privilege might have shielded Bolton’s account of his interactions with Trump. And he’s strengthening the case for subpoenaing Bolton right away.
