On Politics A.M.: Bolton Willing to Testify in Impeachment Trial

The former national security adviser said he would testify if the Senate subpoenaed him.

Good Tuesday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today.

  • John Bolton, the former national security adviser, who so far has complied with a White House order not to cooperate with the impeachment trial of President Trump, said Monday that he was willing to testify if subpoenaed, putting new pressure on Republicans hoping for a speedy proceeding and raising the possibility of fresh revelations.
  • American military units stationed in Iraq and Syria are readying for attacks from Iranian forces or their proxies after the drone strike that killed a senior Iranian general last week. The Pentagon has directed about 4,500 troops to the region on top of the roughly 50,000 already there as tensions rise with Iran.
  • Virginia Democrats are preparing to take power for the first time in 25 years. In a 60-day legislative sprint, they will seek to restrict gun purchases, outlaw discrimination based on sexual orientation and give undocumented people licenses to drive.

Today’s On Politics briefing was compiled by Isabella Grullón Paz in New York.
