Bolton attorney Charles Cooper made the disclosure to the House’s general counsel in an effort to explain why his client needs a court order to be able to testify in the impeachment inquiry.

Cooper said both Bolton and his deputy, Charles Kupperman, have information concerning “national security and foreign affairs,” and Bolton has information that hasn’t been touched on publicly to date.

Bolton “was personally involved in many of the events, meetings, and conversations about which you have already received testimony, as well as many relevant meetings and conversations that have not yet been discussed in the testimonies thus far,” Cooper wrote.
