John Bolton, then the national security adviser, during an event in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, July 19, 2019. Drafts of Bolton's book outline the potential testimony of the former national security adviser if he were called as a witness in the president's impeachment trial.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump told his national security adviser he wanted to maintain a freeze on military assistance to Ukraine until it launched political investigations into his Democratic rivals, according to a report in The New York Times on Sunday.

The newspaper said John Bolton's description of his exchange with Trump appears in drafts of his forthcoming book. The revelation challenges the defense offered up by Trump and his attorneys in his Senate impeachment trial and raises the stakes as the chamber decided this week whether to seek sworn testimony from Bolton and other witnesses.
