Trump Torches Warmonger John Bolton in Scathing Rebuke

January 31, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

President Trump responded to John Bolton’s supposed allegations made in his new book by claiming that Bolton would have started a world war had Trump not fired him.

According to Fox News:

In a pair of white-hot tweets Wednesday morning, President Trump slammed John Bolton over the recent leak of details from his forthcoming book that complicated the president’s ongoing impeachment trial — and needled his former national security adviser over his notoriously hawkish reputation on foreign policy.

Trump’s comments come after a New York Times report earlier this week said Bolton wrote in his book that Trump linked aid for Ukraine to his request for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate 2020 rival Joe Biden and his family for corruption. Those developments are at the heart of the impeachment trial.

Democrats have said that connection was an abuse of power aimed at boosting Trump’s reelection prospects. Trump’s defense team has said that there was no such connection, and even if there was, Trump had good reason to think the Bidens should have been investigated for corruption and that such a “quid pro quo” is common in U.S. foreign policy.

A handful of moderate Republican senators, including Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Mitt Romney, R-Utah and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, have expressed interest in hearing from witnesses in the impeachment trial — and especially Bolton, after the book leak — to the chagrin of Trump and GOP leadership. Democrats would need four GOP defections to call witnesses.

Bolton has also said that he would testify in front of the Senate if he was subpoenaed. This would likely cause a bitter court battle if the White House decided to block his testimony.

    The Republican Party has got to rid itself of all the rats, and turncoats. What is wrong with these people ? Don’t they realize that strength lies in unity of numbers, and what is at stake if the Socialistic Liberal Leftist Democrats gain the White House and Senate ? Lets go people…….there is no ” I ” in TEAM !!!

    We finally have a leader who is leading this country back to its strength and greatness. There are a lot of politicians and people on the “dole” who don’t like the fact that they MSU one day have to get off their asses and work for what they have……. instead of being given to them!

    Andrew is right, Republicans have to stick together; they finally have a chance to really come through for the country. If Romney or any others in the party cannot stand President Trump for whatever ridiculous reason they may have then they should get the hell out and let someone else take the opportunity to better this country!

    All of these obstructionists forget one major thing, they are there FOR US NOT FOR THEMSELVES!
    So get with the program or get the hell out of the way!
