    Four months before the next US presidential election, Donald Trumpís poll numbers are in a slump. Disaffected conservatives call him incompetent and are campaigning against the Republican president, citing the upward curve of new coronavirus cases in the US, the millions of unemployed Americans, and the protests and racial tension in the wake of George Floydís killing. They echo Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, who says Trumpís leadership is inadequate. One of his three former national security advisors, John Bolton, joined DWís Tim Sebastian to discuss his impressions of President Trump on Conflict Zone. [Ö] Bolton characterizes White...
  • Bolton dismisses Trump claim that he wasn't given intelligence reports

    Speaking on "Face the Nation," former National Security Adviser John Bolton dismissed US President Donald Trump's claims that he wasn't briefed about intelligence suggesting that Russia commissioned Taliban-linked fighters to kill US soldiers, The Guardian reports. "All intelligence is distributed along the spectrum of uncertainty," Bolton said. "And this intelligence ... by the administrationís own admission, was deemed credible enough to give to our allies. So the notion that you only give the really completely 100% verified intelligence to the president would mean you give him almost nothing. And thatís just not the way the system works." Former National Security...

    For US National Security Advisor John Bolton warned that President Trumpís reelection could imperil Israel. Speaking with Israelís Channel 13 in an interview which is set to be aired Thursday night, Bolton said he fears that if President Trump is reelected this November, it could create a Ďriskí for Israel. Specifically, Bolton claimed that Trump is ďeagerĒ to open negotiations with Iran and could offer sanctions relief, something which would pose a ďa dangerĒ. .....

    Top officials in the White House were aware in early 2019 of classified intelligence indicating Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans, a full year earlier than has been previously reported, according to U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the intelligence. The assessment was included in at least one of President Donald Trumpís written daily intelligence briefings at the time, according to the officials. Then-National Security Adviser John Bolton also told colleagues at the time that he briefed Trump on the intelligence assessment in March 2019.

  • 'View' co-hosts confront Bolton: You're part of the reason Trump is 'still in office'

    The liberal hosts of "The View" had some strong words for former National Security Adviser John Bolton whom they argued should have spoken out against President Trump while House Democrats worked to impeach him at the end of last year. Co-host Sunny Hostin outright accused Bolton of being "one of the very reasons, if not the reason, that President Trump is still in office, and wasn't impeached. Help me understand why your silence is not complicity in this," she said. The House ultimately impeached Trump along partisan lines but the GOP-led Senate declined to convict Trump on the two articles...

    John Bolton would consider testifying against Attorney General William Barr if House Democrats were to call him, he told The Washington Post in an interview Tuesday. "I'll certainly consider it if and when it comes up and consult with my lawyers and try and do the right thing," Bolton told The Post's Robert Costa in a virtual interview. The House Judiciary Committee is preparing to subpoena AG Barr in an investigation into the firing of Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman last weekend. "You know I'd rather not get into a hypothetical about that," Bolton told Costa....

    Tamaracís vice mayor, who leads an evangelical North Lauderdale church as Pastor Fire when heís off the dais, announced publicly he plans to add a yarmulke to his wardrobe Ö in a manner of speaking. Just after decrying Mayor Michelle Gomezís use of identity politics to win an election, the pastor announced at the June 10 meeting that heís undergoing a conversion to Judaism. ďI am a Christian,Ē he said, during a fiery, freewheeling exchange between him and the mayor. ďI am going through a conversion to join the Jewish community as we speak.

    South Korea slammed former White House national security adviser John Bolton for distorting the facts regarding nuclear talks between leaders of the U.S. and the Koreas in his forthcoming memoir. South Koreaís national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, said Boltonís description of top-level consultation in his new book ďThe Room Where It Happened,Ē is not accurate. ďIt does not reflect accurate facts and substantially distorts facts,Ē South Koreaís national security adviser, said in a statement, according to Reuters. He also accused Bolton of "being inaccurate" and "distorting the reality," according to The Washington Post. According to excerpts of Boltonís book published...
  • Your Suggestion for John Bolton's Next Job

    Freep | 06-22-2020 | CharlesOconnell
    I don't think John Bolton would make a good bill collector because, even with the bad-cop/good-cop thing, it takes a certain social ability, even to intimidate people. My suggestion comes from a cloth-diaper for rent business, Tidee-Diety, where customers were instructed not to empty their babies' for-rent cloth diapers, but were to leave them "full". I think John Bolton is qualified to be a human waste disposal coordinator, the person whose job it is to empty baby feces from rent-a-diapers.

    Two authors can play at that game. On the heels of former national security advisor John Bolton's already infamous book, "The Room Where it Happened," about his time in the Trump administration, where he accuses the president of using Ukraine and China to boost his re-election chances, former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has penned her own book, called "Speaking for Myself." Because of the current news cycle, she thought it would be a perfect time to share an anecdote from her book about Bolton. And it ain't pretty. The following story, she says, proves that Bolton is...

    On Election Day 2016 I was in the green room at Fox News in midtown Manhattan waiting to go on the air, as was Ambassador John Bolton. I asked John if he had already voted, to which he replied, ďYes, for Trump. Heís an idiot, but anybody is better than Hillary Clinton.Ē Thatís why I had my doubts when Bolton lobbied so aggressively for and became President Trumpís national security adviser less than two years later.

    Former Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton said in an interview with NPR released Monday morning that Democrats' impeachment efforts failed in part because they tried to fit impeachment into their party's primary calendar, a move he said played into President Trump's hands because the president benefited from the "very narrow focus" of the impeachment investigation. Bolton's interview with NPR is part of a media blitz by the now-shunned former member of Trump's inner circle ahead of the publication of his tell-all about his time as national security adviser titled "The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir."

    Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders detailed an explosive fight between then-chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton during President Trumpís state visit to London a year ago. Sanders writes in her forthcoming book that Bolton was ďdrunk on powerĒ and ďhad forgotten that nobody elected him to anything,Ē according to Axios. "Bolton apparently felt too important to travel with the rest of us," Sanders wrote. "As we were ready to depart for the Winfield House, [the U.S. ambassador's residence in London], we loaded onto a small black bus. We waited and watched as...

    SEOUL ó Former national security adviser John Bolton's account of nuclear talks between the United States and the two Koreas is incorrect and distorted, Seoul's Presidential Office said Monday, echoing the Trump administration's accusations against the soon-to-be-published exposť by the former top aide. In his new memoir giving a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Washingtonís foreign affairs dealings, Bolton describes how President Trumpís engagement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un failed to achieve its goal of getting North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons. Boltonís tell-all account of the 17 months he served as Trumpís national security adviser has made...

    A spokeswoman for John Bolton on Sunday denied a report claiming the former national security adviser will cast his presidential vote for Joe Biden on Election Day -- but she affirmed he won't vote for President Trump either. Later Sunday, ABC News broadcast its interview with Bolton, during which he made the same admission, adding, "I'm gonna figure out a conservative Republican to write in." The U.K. Telegraph had reported, as part of its own interview, that Bolton, also the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, "says he intends to vote for Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate."
