John Bolton now wants to testify on Capitol Hill. It is not a foregone conclusion whether he will be able to testify. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) may be the one to make it happen in the House if the Senate will not allow for it in the impeachment hearing.

April Ryan speaks with Lacy Clay (D-MO) who is a majority leader of the Government Oversight Reform Committee about John Bolton’s motivation to testify as a key witness.
