The Bolton Disclosures continue — this Time implicating Trump’s “Roy Cohn”

1285

The NY Times released another scoop from the John Bolton book manuscript.  This one puts Trump’s “Roy Cohn” smack in the middle of the Trump jackpot too.

As explained by Talking Points Memo:

Bolton Told Barr He Was Worried Trump Was Doing Favors For Xi And Erdogan, Book Reportedly Says

by Matt Shuham, TPM.com — January 27, 2020

[…]

According to Bolton’s manuscript, Barr reportedly expressed concerns to Bolton about the Chinese telecom firm ZTE, and specifically about Trump’s conversations with Chinese President Xi Jinping about the firm.

In 2016, the Department of Commerce found that the company had violated U.S. sanctions on Iran and North Korea. The firm agreed to plead guilt and pay a fine for the violation the next year, and in 2018 Trump lifted sanctions that had been in place against ZTE, despite the protestation of many in Congress.

According to the Times, Barr also cited his concerns over Trump’s conversations with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2018 about Halkbank.

The state-owned bank was under investigation at the time for fraud and money laundering, part of an alleged scheme to help Iran evade U.S. sanctions. Ultimately, the bank was charged in October in the Southern District of New York.

Beware of the Mustache of Doom, forever-trumpers.

The guy takes himself WAY too seriously, to be kicked to curb, like last month’s trash.

The book is going to be printed.

Its disclosures will probably be as damaging as the Nixon Tapes.

Beware Gophers.   Better look for the high-ground, while you still have a shred of deniability.

The American people are GOING TO find out the Truth.

Because:  The Truth matters.  Doing the right thing still matters.”

Odds are, that new “Trump Defense” is issued by the end of the week.

I’m sure that there is a plethora of information still uncovered in Bolton’a manuscript. Bronco ewok is up to his elbows in this shartshow. He too should be impeached for being the personal consigliere for the turdmuffin, he’s supposed to be working for the American people. There’s going to be a lot of heads rolling when it’s all said and done
