THE SOURCES BEING BOLTON AND PENCE:

Bolton criticizes Trump policy on North Korea as sources say he opposed call to Ukraine (Carol E. Lee, Kristen Welker, Courtney Kube and Kelly O'Donnell, 9/30/19, NBC News)

Three officials said Bolton argued against Trump calling Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on July 25 because he was concerned the president wasn't coordinating with advisers on what to say and might air personal grievances. The officials declined to say whether that included concerns that Trump might raise questions about his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Ukraine.

Bolton was among the senior members of the president's national security team, including Vice President Mike Pence, who did not listen in on the Zelenskiy call, officials said.
