NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Former national security adviser John Bolton says the House's impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump were “grossly partisan” and said his testimony would not have changed Trump's acquittal in the Senate.

At a Vanderbilt University speaking engagement Wednesday, Bolton also continued to stay quiet on the details of a yet-to-be-released book, as he did during a Monday event.

He took the stage Wednesday with former national security adviser under President Barack Obama, Susan Rice. She questioned his refusal to share more details while his book undergoes screening for classified national security details by the Trump administration.
