Why Colorado's Junior Senator, Cory Gardner, Should Vote in Trump's Trial to Call John Bolton to Testify

Colorado’s junior senator is Republican Cory Gardner.


Which means he’s supposed to be an impartial juror in the Trump Impeachment Trial. He swore an oath to do exactly that.


Gardner narrowly defeated Democratic Senator Mark Udall in 2014. In that election, he received 916,245 votes.


Soon, Gardner will have to decide whether to vote to require Donald Trump’s former National Security Advisor, John Bolton, to testify in Trump’s Impeachment Trial.


Bolton knows a great deal about Trump’s corrupt demand to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (www.nytimes.com/2020/01/28/us/politics/bolton-trump.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share).


Bolton has very publicy indicated that would willingly testify if subpoenaed.


Gardner’s boss, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, doesn’t want witnesses to be called to testify.


But Gardner’s up for re-election this year, and he wants to keep his seat.


All sensible voters in Colorado this year would very much prefer that ANDREW ROMANOFF defeat Gardner in November.


Which is why our Chief Congressonal Correspondent, associate solitary reporter Melissa Smith, is paying very close attention to Gardner, as he fidgets restlessly in his seat.


Meanwhile, our Denver-based associate solitary reporter, Lewis Thompson, has personally contacted all 916,245 voters who voted for Gardner six years ago.


And all of them told ASR Thompson that they wish they had not voted for Gardner, in 2014.
