Trump ordered Bolton "last spring", in May, "in front of other senior advisers to pave the way for a meeting between Rudolph Giuliani and Ukraine's new leader". That meeting never happened, ' he said.

"Specifically, the documents in this category are emails that reflect communications by either the president, the vice president, or the president's immediate advisers regarding presidential decision-making about the scope, duration, and goal of the hold on military assistance to Ukraine", OMB lawyer Heather Walsh argued in a late-night court filing by the DOJ.

She was abruptly recalled from her position in May of past year. Democrats have spent days saying the trial would be a sham and a cover-up without witnesses.

The Republican-controlled Senate is expected to vote to acquit the president of two articles of impeachment on Wednesday.

Rudy Giuliani, the Trump attorney heavily involved in the Ukraine affair, called former National Security Adviser John Bolton a "backstabber" over his comments about USA aid to Ukraine being conditioned on the foreign government agreeing to launch a political probe. Senators resume the trial at 1 p.m. on Friday and move straight to the witness question.
