Trump says he NEVER told Bolton aid was linked to any investigations

Just after midnight last night, Trump responded to the New York Times article alleging that Bolton said Trump didn’t want to release the aid until the Ukrainians “helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens”. Trump said it’s not true:

A couple of hours ago Trump added that it was the House’s job to get Bolton to testify and they never asked:

The latter he said in response to Democrats trying to up the pressure to hear from Bolton. The problem is that Bolton is bound by executive privilege so even if he were to be subpoenaed, he couldn’t say anything. It would take the courts intervening to break executive privilege and I seriously doubt the Senate would even go down that road, especially when the House refused to even subpoena Bolton. At the end of the day I think all of this is going to be moot.
