“I don't want to comment to this point on what our plans may or may not be with respect to John Bolton,” Schiff said on "Face The Nation." 

“But I will say this: whether it's before – in testimony before the House or it's in his book or it's in one form or another, the truth will continue to come out,” he added. 

The House Intelligence Committee chairman’s comments come two days after the Senate voted not to include additional witnesses and documentation in the impeachment trial.

He criticized the Justice Department for releasing a court filing including two dozen emails detailing the president’s involvement in withholding aid to Ukraine after the vote Friday.

"That shows you the lengths to which the President's lawyers are going to cover this up," he said, adding: "but they're going to fail. Indeed, they've failed already."

Before that, the president’s legal team had been arguing in the impeachment trial that Trump did not directly say to hold back the aid. Democrats pushed for senators to support Bolton testimony during the trial but were unsuccessful.

The impeachment trial is expected to end this week with Trump’s acquittal, but the House would still have the ability to subpoena Bolton.
