Bolton Latest Stunt During Appearance Is Behavior That Obama Would Be Proud
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton is something else and during his first public appearance since the impeachment trial of President Trump he engaged in behavior that only former President Obama would be proud of.
During an appearance at Duke University Bolton did bring up his time at the White House but, did not disclose many details. Instead, he hyped his book by telling the audience, “You’ll love chapter 14,” and that he hopes his memoir is not “suppressed” under the Trump administration’s “censorship.”
Bolton’s book, titled, “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” is still being examined by the White House, last month the National Security Council informed Bolton’s attorney that his manuscript “appears to contain significant amounts of classified information that must be removed.”
“I hope it’s not suppressed,” Bolton said of his book to the crowd in Durham, North Carolina, on Monday, according to Bloomberg News. “This is an effort to write history, and I did it the best I can. We’ll have to see what comes out of the censorship.”
“Details” of the the manuscript were leaked to the New York Times who claimed that the manuscript said President Trump told Bolton “in August that [the president] wanted to continue freezing $392 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including [Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden].”
That report was an attempt to throw the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump into chaos and force Republicans to call new witnesses, which thankfully, they didn’t fall for.
The Department of Justice has also slammed the book saying Bolton’s manuscripts is “nasty and untrue.”
Bolton giving a speaking engagement, only plugging his book not and not giving any information is just as bad as when on Monday former President Obama tried to take credit over how well the economy is doing.
