Bolton told ex-Trump aide to call White House lawyers about Ukraine pressure campaign
The Hill ^ | 10/14/19 | Justine Coleman

Former national security adviser John Bolton told a former aide to President Trump on Russia to call White House lawyers to warn them about a pressure campaign on Ukraine, House investigators were reportedly told Monday.

Bolton told Fiona Hill, the senior director for Russian and Eurasian affairs, to contact the lawyer for the National Security Council and say that the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani was involved in the efforts to pressure Ukraine into investigating Democrats, the New York Times reported Monday night.

“I am not part of whatever drug deal Rudy and Mulvaney are cooking up,” Bolton told Hill to tell White House lawyers, according to the testimony reported by the Times.

The former national security adviser had called Giuliani a "hand grenade who's going to blow everybody up" in a previous conversation with Hill, according to the Times.

Oh, my. Giuliani was investigating deep state activity in Ukraine? I’m shocked, shocked, I tell you.

Remember when simpleton George W Bush was trying to appoint Bolton as UN ambassador and freepers defended the appointment against Democrats’ objections that Bolton’s a nutcase?

Well, the Democrats were right. Bolton is a neocon maniac - one of a bunch of them that the idiot George Bush allowed himself to be led by.

I’m very disappointed with Bolton.

There was a time when I talked this guy up as being a pretty savvy individual on global dynamics.

Sounds as if he’s gone full tilt deep state.

I have no tolerance for that. Someone should have planted their boot on his way out.

Bolton’s a POS armchair warrior.

He talks tough but has no real b.lls.

It seems Trump and Rudy and a few others are the only ones that do.

Meanwhile schiff talks to “whistle blowers” BEFORE he should even know about anything.

The whistle blower game rules were changed mid game so that first hand info WASNT needed.

And on and on.

But they are trying to bury Trump and anyone that sticks by him.

Bolton can go #### himself.

“I’m very disappointed with Bolton.”

He is and always has been a neocon warmonger maniac.

You’re both right about this deep state neocon POS.

He’s not the FIRST one I liked only to find out he was deep state garbage.

Since Trump’s been elected that’s gotten kind of commonplace.

Sounds like Bolton is trying to drum up a book deal. I’d take all these leaks with a grain of salt.

So John Bolton was perhaps striking back against our President after taking the position that was entrusted to him?

I think our President needs to stop hiring traitors to fulfill key positions.

The penalty for treason is still death.
Bolton was a neo con deep state member.

Bolton was part of this circus.
He is done and might as well hang it up.

One of my tests of these twits, is their grasp and stance on Israel. If it’s a Leftist, they tend to go squishy on Israel, and that reveals a whole expanded can of worms.

He seemed to get it with regard to Israel. At least he wasn’t demanding Israel apologize for the audacity of defending it’s people from the terrorists, like the Bush wing of the party was for so many years.

John Bolton looks like he got the goods on ‘em alright . Funny. All this time I thought it was over North Korea policy ....(another absofrikkinlutely disaster for the last 18 months), but no it turned out to be this unforgivable Ukrainian Nonsense. “Deep State” indeed. There was a “Deep State” alright.

I am the Walrus. Kookookechew.

Bolton has always been a neocon megalomaniac.

He could never win an elected office because he's totally unlikable so he attaches himself to power.

I'll never understand why anyone supported this guy.

He will likely go down in history.
