Bolton’s Revenge: Former National Security Adviser In Contact With Impeachment Panels

Attorneys John Bolton, President Trump’s former National Security Adviser, are in discussions with House committees about the possibility of giving a deposition in their impeachment investigations, according to CNN.

Bolton, who some speculated was the original “first-hand” source of the whistleblower complaint which launched the impeachment inquiries, was fired after President Trump says he “disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions.”

According to sources, while Trump had been growing displeased with Bolton’s belligerent recommendations and overall demeanor (recall “Bolton ‘Deep in His Heart’ Believes Trump Is a ‘Moron,’ Former Aide Claims“), the tipping point happened when Bolton expressed his displeasure with Trump’s impromptu invitation of the Taliban to Camp David on the week of the Sept 11 anniversary, a peace overture which as we reported over the weekend, collapsed in the last moment.

The New York Times suggested on Thursday that “Among the star witnesses who could deliver explosive public testimony in front of live television cameras could be John R. Bolton, the president’s former national security adviser, who has been described in testimony as alarmed by what appeared to be pressure on the Ukrainians by Mr. Trump and his allies.”

Earlier this month, the Times also reported that Bolton was ‘so alarmed’ by efforts to encourage Ukraine to investigate the Bidens over allegations of corruption that he told an aide, Fiona Hill, to alert White House lawyers. Hill told House investigators that Bolton got into a heated confrontation on July 10 with Trump’s EU ambassador, Gordon D. Sondland, who was working with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to investigate Democrats. Hill said that Bolton told her to notify the top attorney for the National Security Council about the ‘rogue’ effort by Sondland, Giuliani and acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.

I am not part of whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney are cooking up,” Bolton apparently told Hill to tell the lawyers.

It was not the first time Mr. Bolton expressed grave concerns to Ms. Hill about the campaign being run by Mr. Giuliani. “Giuliani’s a hand grenade who’s going to blow everybody up,” Ms. Hill quoted Mr. Bolton as saying during an earlier conversation.

The testimony revealed in a powerful way just how divisive Mr. Giuliani’s efforts to extract damaging information about Democrats from Ukraine on President Trump’s behalf were within the White House. Ms. Hill, the senior director for European and Russian affairs, testified that Mr. Giuliani and his allies circumvented the usual national security process to run their own foreign policy efforts, leaving the president’s official advisers aware of the rogue operation yet powerless to stop it. –NYT

When Hill confronted Sondland, he told her that he was ‘in charge’ of Ukraine, “a moment she compared to Secretary of State Alexander M. Haig Jr.’s declaration that he was in charge after the Ronald Reagan assassination attempt, according to those who heard the testimony,” according to the Times.

  1. I use too respect Bolton’s America first. But being a career ?, He had zero idea as too Trump’s agenda,and refused to work with him. In fact many now believe he was the leak all along? Trump tried, Bolton failed and became a liability.
    Now Bolton according too fake news has went too the dark side. I hope their wrong. If not that can only mean BOLTON HAS WORKED FOR THE FEDERAL GIVERMENT COUP OF PRESIDENT TRUMP. WHICH MEANS TREASON, HANG EM HIGH!

  2. Bolton is mad because he was fired….he is a war monger….and President Trump is not.
    President Trump should have got rid of all of “OBamas” thugs when he took office, O’Bama 8 years as President will go down as one of the most corrupt administration in the history of the USA-He know about he Russian Collusion-they were colluding with Hillary!!!

  3. Poor little Bolton, POTUS didn’t listen to him so now he’s all mad and gonna do everything he can to get payback! I’m amazed he lasted as long as he did! he’s nothing short of a war monger and has always been a war monger! Hell, it’s not his sons or daughters dying in other countries for no damn reason so why should he care! He’s just another elitist that wants to control the world! Drop dead Bolton, you scum bag! POTUS gace you a shot and you blew it, now get over you panty waist pussy!

  4. Washington and the white house are full.of low lifers and traitors, dirty scumbacs politicians capable of selling their own mothers should it be necesary in order to gain power, no honor nor honesty among these millionaries piece of shit.

  5. I’m wondering if Bolton is another source the whistleblower talked with. Which means he does not know anything. Bolton is upset that Trump is doing it his way. Also, Trump had every right to ask Ukraine to investigate corruption that happened there. As Clinton and Obama both asked for information from foreign government.

  6. He is nothing but a piece of crap that I wipe off my shoes””he hate’s the PRTESIDENT so what else do you expect from his mouth”””

  7. Well saidBolton was not with our President how many more snakes are in his administration Trump is working in a pit of viper it makes me furious so many are jealous of our duly elected wonderful hardworking Potus.

  8. Bolton is the arse everyone has always accused him. Arrogant warmongering jackass that thinks his way is the only way. No one, even the dangerous ones like Un of N Korea see him as counter productive.

  9. What else is new? It’s all going to be assumptions just like the MSM. Selling assumptions is the new truth in America. Second, anyone with a different view of the world than a sick liberal view is the perceived enemy. Bolton’s words will be twisted by the media and when the liberal Congress feels they have enough false propaganda and assumptions fed to the undereducated self absorbed dependent on the state liberal then they will impeach without cause and be told it’s the right thing to do for our country. Kind of like opening the borders to illegals and we can’t find one reason it’s good for the country. Trump is messing with some liberals earning an illegal dollar and all hell has broken lose.

  10. The headline of the article states, “Bolton’s Revenge: Former National Security Adviser In Contact With Impeachment Panels.”
    This wording makes it sound like he (Bolton) instigated the process. If he is in contact with the impeachment panels, it is likely because the impeachment panels wanted to talk to him. The rational for this is because some speculate that Bolton was the original “first-hand” source of the whistleblower complaint.
    John R. Bolton was fired by Trump because Trump “disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions.” The article makes it sound like Bolton is seeking revenge against Trump.
    This is what I dislike about the media. We don’t know for sure if Bolton seeks any kind of revenge or if he is chomping at the bit to divulge any type of detrimental information to the impeachment panel, however the article implies that he does.
