John Bolton’s Tell-All Book To Drop June 23

377

Wheeee, another bomb for Donald Trump to dodge. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving schmuck. Former national security adviser John Bolton’s tell-all book on the Trump administration was enjoined from publication for a few months, alleging that Bolton had published classified information, but it will drop June 23. Washington Post:

The president has said that Bolton should not publish the book until after the election and has called him a “traitor” in private for writing a negative tell-all book, The Washington Post has previously reported.

Bolton is planning to publish even if the White House does not give publication approval, people familiar with his thinking say, and believes he has removed all classified material. […]

The 592-page book is expected to provide an unvarnished and caustic account of life inside the White House from the national security adviser’s perspective. It is expected to describe the president’s decision-making process, his warring advisers and a number of foreign policy topics, from Ukraine and Venezuela to North Korea and Iran.

The book caused a ruckus earlier this year, after the New York Times reported that Bolton’s book would substantiate claims that Trump withheld military aid to pressure Ukraine’s leader to launch a political investigation. People familiar with the book say Bolton will describe Ukrainian interactions in detail.

I can hardly wait. Bolton is talking to various television networks about doing interviews to promote the book. I hope it’s a best seller, filled with juicy anecdotes and I further hope that it’s got enough incendiary content to inspire a few Lincoln Project ads. Bolton has been in politics a long time. He’s not going to let Trump steal his legacy. I’m betting this book is going to be a real scorcher.

It’s not a book that I would buy but then most won’t have to because it will be all over the media and Bolton will be on most media shows promoting it and to be honest it probably would have made little difference if he had testified at the impeachment as the GOP had made their mind up long before they commenced the hearings, so this is probably the best wayfor him to stick it to trump

The orangutan baby is probably at the well right now drawing up the usual nasty phrases and names he tweets for people who oppose him. There won’t be any surprises.

Bolton was subpoenaed by Congress, and refused to comply, negating a basic premise of the Constitution, i.e. checks and balances. Now he’s going to make money on what he could have said then. Maybe the Repugnicans wouldn’t have listened anyway, or done anything different in the Senate vis-a-vis impeachment. But it would have been harder to ignore him, a Republican who has been in and out of government for many years, than it was for them to ignore career diplomats, like Marie Yovanovitch and Alexander Vindman. And look at the courage of those diplomats compared to his lack of same:… Read more »
