1. Trump gets to mount a defense.

Calling Hunter Biden as a hostile witness would be very useful to them.

They would utilize the BS they got from Viktor Shokin. They would hit Biden with a hundred "were you aware ofs" until he says one thing they can seize on to legitimize Trump's "corruption" concerns.

They'll also assail his appointment to the board as nepotism.

If you want Bolton, you are going to have to give something. A quid pro quo, if you will.

3. They can call Biden, but he might not show up.

He could file a lawsuit asking if he has to appear before the Senate. It worked for some Republican I believe...

10. Point IS, what has he to do with Trump's crime?

I believe that is absolutely nothing.

Remember, their smears and allegations do not create a Hunter crime. Could the senate Republicans subpoena any of us and proceed with character assassination by forcing us to answer "questions" about why we beat our wives, respond to an anonymous accusation that we steal from the coffee fund at work, and explain why "many people" suspect we still kick puppies when no one's looking?

2. It's a "red herring".

Is it possible all this buzz is an attempt by Senate Republicans to hear from a "friendly witness"? I don't care what Bolton or Biden have to say. Bolton is a snake, imo.

5. Bolton is a wild card...

while I'd love to see him testify, he would be a dangerous witness.

Biden is just an attempt to get Repub gotcha question video clips on Fox.

4. I usually like Nicole Wallace for the most part...

but pressing that question to every Dem she talks to was a bit much.

6. Bolton is a traitorous swine

I hope his book gets ignored and he fades into obscurity. I donít think he has been an active criminal like so many in Trumps camp but staying silent at this time makes him just as big a traitor. All the rethugs who have taken this tack are traitors.

I briefly held out some hope his patriotic side would win out and heíd speak up. Itís hard to think but has he been compromised by the Russians too?

9. I agree. Such a move would play right into the hands of Republicans who are holding

no hand, hoping to distract from the truth and turn the trial into an unsubstantiated political attack on the Bidens. And M$M would LOVE it.

11. Yes, it IS absolute bullshit. Involving the Bidens in any way would be acquiescing

to the GOP nonsense conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden and Ukraine.

And there's absolutely no guarantee that any testimony from Bolton would be helpful to the Dems instead of to Trump.
