Trump Crushes Bolton: ‘If I Listened to Him, We Would be in World War Six by Now’
“All Classified National Security. Who would do this?”
President Donald Trump unloaded on former National Security Adviser John Bolton over his book’s manuscript, which appeared in The New York Times.
Bolton claimed Trump wanted to withhold millions to Ukraine unless its government opened an investigation into the Biden family.
For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, “begged” me for a non Senate approved job, which I gave him despite many saying “Don’t do it, sir,” takes the job, mistakenly says “Libyan Model” on T.V., and..

….many more mistakes of judgement, gets fired because frankly, if I listened to him, we would be in World War Six by now, and goes out and IMMEDIATELY writes a nasty & untrue book. All Classified National Security. Who would do this?

The Senate had already been fighting over calling witnesses in the impeachment trial. The Senate needs 51 votes to pass a motion to call witnesses and this drops? Hhhmmm!
So today I also noticed that some have said BREAKING the White House has told Bolton not to publish his book.
But Byron York noticed the dates on the letter and the NYT article.
It’s not breaking because they sent the letter to Bolton on January 23. The NYT published its article on January 26.

The Babylon Bee claims the Democrats offered Bolton a bucket of fish if he said bad things about Trump!
Trump pays a lot of lawyers a lot of money. He should trust them to make appropriate statements and abandon the Bolton bull. There is no book, the manuscript may or may not exist.
A manuscript is NOT competent evidence and Bolton is presenting himself as woefully conflicted adversary via the same sewage pipe that will publish just about anything.
In this capricious arrangement, it appears that House is acting as a Grand Jury hoping to create a forum for facts in the Senate.
In my estimation, the purpose of the trial is to evaluate the charges made by the House as compared with due process, without possibility of appeal.
Very disappointed by Bolton even if he did get a very bad bargain from Trump.
Ah well, Roberts showed us the content of his character with the ObamaScam episode. An overly powerful central government creates what it creates.
Bolton exposed himself as a man who puts himself ahead of his country.
What a petty little POS.
Bingo, Fine. Just a POS.
Another “We got him now!” moment brought to you by TDS. Maybe we can get candy crowley to come prancing across the Senate floor with bolton’s manuscript, might bring mitt back around to reality.
Methinks the real purpose of this impeachment is not to remove the president, ain’t happening, but to intimidate him into not pursuing any investigation into the activities of the DNC and Hillary with Ukraine, Crowd Strike the supposed DNC server hack during the 2016 campaign.
I haz a theory that takes this premise a little further:
It’s not beyond comprehension in my mind that the ONLY reason Biden is running (or has been BLACKMAILED to run) is to set up the line of argument that DJT was requesting the investigation a POLITICAL RIVAL rather than a retired VP & his POS son (hardly the only corruption of interest, as it happens). Biden launched in April but the principals that set this all in motion were former Biden people very familiar with the Trump administration’s interest in addressing corruption in Ukraine. Such a manufactured layer of insulation would turn out to be very convenient diversionary tactic for Adam Schiff & Co. This was a tight little group of Ukraine wonks just lying in wait for something like the July phone call to come along. The quality of Joe’s campaign is certainly consistent with this theory.
actually, I think the impeachment finally got traction when they wanted to reopen, reopen not start an investigation into Hunter Biden, I also think Hunter, and Joe Biden are just the tip of the Bursema company. I wonder how many favors Joe had to call in to get the impeachment actually started
What worries me is that if the book were a nothing-burger, Trump wouldn’t have attacked Bolton so publicly. There’s stuff in the book that is very bad. It may be a work of fiction, but it’s something that the Dems can use against Trump.
I just don’t get why Bolton would do this – does he really want to see a President Biden or Sanders handling foreign policy? Would either of them have pulled the trigger on Soleimani?
As I said a long time ago, Bolton is for Bolton above all else. Nothing people like that do should be found surprising.
He’d sell his mother for a buck or the appearance of power. He’d happily send your kid to another war for nothing.
Trump’s greatest mistakes have been people he placed in his administration. I will admit I thought Jeff Sessions was a good pick, but when I heard about John Bolton, I thought “What in the world is Trump thinking?”
His second biggest mistake might be the people he’s endorsed for elective office – like Mitt Romney.
PDJT has a HUGE learning curve when he took office. Remember that.
But, he’s since proved he really is a goddam genius.
How could bolton be somstupid??????
How could bolton be so stupid??????
Add Bolton to the long list of people who have thrown crap at Trump only to have it blow back into their own faces.
Who is going to want Bolton after this?
