Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) told John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, and Mick Mulvaney that their day is coming and they can’t run forever.
Rep. Maloney said on MSNBC:
What’s important to us is to understand what the president did and what he was thinking and what it meant and to hold him accountable for it. And that’s our primary focus. Look, you know, John Bolton’s day is coming. So is Mick Mulvaney. So is Secretary Pompeo’s. So is everybody who thinks they can run fast enough to escape the scandal and taint of this administration.
I’d refer them to Roger Stone and Paul Manafort and Rick Gates and Michael Cohen and others in the past who thought they were clever enough or slick enough to evade the truth, to lie to congress, to intimidate witnesses. But the one who matters is the President Of The United States. There are other people who I think have a lot of tough questions to answer.
It bothers me that Ambassador Bolton is selling a book deal when three of his deputies were up here at risk of their own professional careers telling the truth. I think that’s disgraceful. I do think the McGahn decision which is coming quick is going to inform all of us on the true oversight power of congress is. And we’ll take it from there.

Pompeo is planning to resign before Trump’s impeachment destroys his Senate run. Mulvaney is dodging and weaving. He even went as far as to try to join John Bolton’s lawsuit until Bolton told him to buzz off.
Their time is coming because impeachment won’t be the end. The impeachment process is the beginning of the end, as a whole series of careers are being ruined by Donald Trump.
