Disagree....Think Hill is and also think she’s a damn liar.
Bottom line is...
Bolton is a symptom of a hopelessly corrupted Swamp Culture that taints everything it comes in contact with.
He has no doubt learned over years working inside the Beltway that the way to “get things done” is to leak/manipulate/blackmail/backstab.
In this he is no different than all the rest.
On 1/21/2021 Trump needs to CLEAN HOUSE and fire as MANY of these people as possible. Those who absolutely MUST be replaced should come from as far outside the Beltway/government as possible.
Graham is a good guy. You’re an antagonist...again and again and again.
Kennedy school of government, Fiona Hill has a resume that should have utterly prevented her from a White House job.
Bolton brought her in from CFR. Bolton came from that McMasterbator era. McMaster came from GOPe and Pence submarining Flynn.
We have had about 40% of what a Trump administration should have been. About 60% is literally run by Bush family and Obama straphangers.
Are people on here really taking this leaked testimony seriously? I’m not a huge fan of Bolton either, but the stuff that was leaked doesn’t make any sense. As a journalist, I’m immediately struck by how irrelevant the comments are and how they sound completely cherrypicked. For instance, saying that the Ukraine discussions were like “a drug deal” provokes a negative response but doesn’t really give us any information at all. If this is all Bolton said, then he didn’t go down on Trump at all. The same is true of referring to Giulliani as “a hand grenade.” This reference doesn’t even have much of a negative connotation because Giuliani IS a hand grenade (as is Trump). This story was so weak it occurred to me the REPUBLICANS could have leaked it to show that the testimony was silly and completely irrelevant. I figure that Bolton and Trump couldn’t have possibly liked each other, but this particular report doesn’t expose Bolton as an enemy or hater of Trump.
Bolton ripped Trump right after he left. The story is likely an accurate representation of what Bolton said. Bolton was a spy and saboteur inside the Trump administration.
The proof... Bolton has not and will not appear anywhere forcefully denying this crap and supporting Trump.
He is a lying backstabbing swamp creature as treacherous as can be imagined. He is one of those “we resist from inside” types as was in the famous editorial in the NYT.
So the White House Official in the whistle-leaker report was none other than John Bolton?
Time for Trump to fire everyone at NSC and CIA.
You might consider giving the Democrats a permanent majority as a good thing, Graham does, I don’t.
Everything else is your imagination.
Bullcrap. He WAS fired. Trump said so in a tweet. Maybe you believe the neocon CFR draft-dodging W Bush buttboy more honest than Trump... I don’t.
“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore........I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.”
He was fired. His boss said I no longer need your services, give me your resignation. That is “fired”.
Maybe when you get mugged at gunpoint you prefer to call it a charitable donation to the poor, but you was robbed sport.
I said he was fired...
While not a member of the Deep Welfare State, he is and always was a member of the Deep Military Industrial Complex State. So many heads on the beast.
I said he was fired..............geez
No limit to the hyperbole with the haters is there.
Who are the haters? People who dont like Bolton? Does that include Trump for firing him?
“Draining the swamp” was merely moving swamp creatures throughout the swamp.
Link of some sort?
I think it's reasoned to take this report to task, but it does make you wonder what lengths Bolton did go to, to trash Trump's call with the Ukraine's leadership.
I have always thought of him as a straight shooter, but Trump did seem to feel the need to dump him.
Can't tell exactly what is going on for sure.
Just more watercooler gossip. Nothing firsthand or official. Just more little girl gossip.
We called it ‘scuttlebutt ‘ in the Marines............
