A key witness in the impeachment investigation filed a lawsuit Friday, Oct. 25, 2019, asking a federal judge to rule on whether he can testify, a move that raises new doubts about whether Trump's closest aides, like Bolton, will be able to cooperate with the inquiry.

WASHINGTON - House investigators are asking former national security adviser John Bolton to testify in their impeachment inquiry, deepening their reach into the White House as the probe accelerates toward a potential vote to remove the president.

Democratic lawmakers want to hear next week from Bolton, the hawkish former adviser who openly sparred over the administration's approach to Ukraine - in particular, President Donald Trump's reliance on his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani for a back-channel operation. Bolton once derided Giuliani's work as a "drug deal" and said he wanted no part of it, according to previous testimony.
