The New York Times report on John Bolton's manuscript indicates the former national security adviser claims President Trump directly tied Ukraine aid to an announcement about an investigation into the Bidens; chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel reports from Capitol Hill. He said Bolton "couldn't get approved for the Ambassador to the United Nations years ago, couldn't get approved for anything since, "begged" me for a non Senate approved job" and added that "if I listened to him, we would be in World War Six by now".
Trump lashed out at Bolton on Twitter, saying his former aide was coming out with potentially damaging allegations in an upcoming "nasty & untrue book" because he was sacked from his White House position.
The report on the manuscript has fueled debate over whether to ask Bolton to speak as a witness during Trump's impeachment trial.
Critics of the president believe the revelation further highlights the importance of witnesses in Trump's Senate impeachment trial.
In his letter, Cooper asks the NSC to rapidly conclude its review of the manuscript, in light of the possibility Bolton may be subpoenaed to appear at Trump's trial.
In a January 24 response made public on January 30, Cooper told Knight that Bolton might be called to testify in the Senate impeachment trial.
But they are warned by Republican party leaders that calling Mr Bolton as a witness could entangle the trial in lengthy legal battles and delay Mr Trump's expected acquittal.
"The bar for impeachment can not be set this low", said Jay Sekulow, another Trump lawyer.

Trump lawyers enter final day after skirting Bolton bombshell
Senator Ted Cruz, a staunch Trump defender, said the Bolton book would not "impact the legal issue before this Senate". Schumer also indicated Democrats would reject any effort at a so-called witness swap with Republicans.
The President has denied all charges against him. It wraps up by claiming that the NSC will certainly do their finest to guarantee Bolton's "ability to tell his story in a manner that protects USA national security". It suggests that within days of former Vice President Joe Biden's entrance into the 2020 presidential campaign, Trump tasked his top officials to work with Giuliani on an effort to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation targeting Biden - one that Trump's attorneys have already insisted was not a matter of US foreign policy.
According to Bolton's unpublished manuscript, the former national security adviser never made the call Trump requested.
The questioning precedes a crucial vote later in the week on whether to call witnesses including Bolton, as Democrats have sought. Witnesses are up to the House, not up to the Senate.
"I can't point to something in the record that shows President Trump at an earlier time mentioning specifically something related to Joe or Hunter Biden", he added.
A month later, Trump inquired about - and ultimately froze - military aid to Ukraine. The Trump administration issued a threat to Bolton to keep him from releasing The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir. Engel said Bolton suggested to him in a September 23 phone call that the panel should look into Trump's removal last May of Marie Yovanovitch as American ambassador to Ukraine, a pivotal event in the Ukraine matter.
Cooper had submitted the manuscript to the National Security Council for vetting on December 30. He's sure making up - I wouldn't call it making it up, but he's acting like a real scumbag by never telling me that he objected once, and then saying I was a time bomb, or a firecracker or something, ' he said.
In an interview on "CBS This Morning", Giuliani called Bolton a "backstabber".
The manuscript is said to contain an account of the president directly informed Mr Bolton that he would withhold USA military aid to Ukraine to pressure Ukraine to help him win the 2020 USA elections.
