Former National Security Advisor John Bolton and his book publisher are denying they coordinated with journalists to leak a copy of his forthcoming book, which contains an allegation that President Donald Trump confessed to stalling Ukraine aid to force investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden.
The disclosure of that claim in a Bolton book manuscript whose details were leaked to the New York Times boosted Democratic hopes to call witnesses in Trumps impeachment trial. Trump denied the reported claim.
A statement distributed by longtime Bolton aide Sarah Tinsley denied any coordination in releasing the claim.

Of course they do.
Practiced leakers can even say it with a straight face.
All this Bolton horse crap is not going to change the outcome. Can’t they see that?
It is time to take both of those Russian/Ukrainian pukes , the Vindman brothers , and tie them to posts.
How the hell did these a-holes make LtC f
rank in our military ? There ought to be a litmus test. THEY FAIL!
As Fred Fleitz said...
I believe they are still responsible for this leak since Boltons explosive book was sent to the leak-prone National Security Council for a security review in December 2019 so the book could be published in the spring of 2020. It also is inexplicable how such a sensitive manuscript could be sent to the NSC in the middle of the impeachment process. Under such circumstances, a leak of the manuscript was all but certain.
What’s more interesting is that he doesn’t deny the claim the leak says is in his book.
I don’t think he ‘leaked’ it at all.
I think he actually gave it to whichever print/social media promised they would print or post it.
Talk about tossing a Baby Ruth into the Swimming Pool.
you can trust leaker Bolton,
because he only betrays the ELECTED PRESIDENT,
says Team Bolton.
He is an untrustworthy, seditious, treasonous
neocon who will be remembered with Romney and Soros.
He should never be seen in public again.
"Mr. President, the Democrats send their regards."
Them oligarch bastids are revealing all their chess pieces. It’s endgame. WWIII is on.
Who else would have access to it then?
Has anyone documented what Trump is allowed to do?
He can’t negotiate with foreign powers regarding aid.
He can’t use funds for the wall, freed up by the military.
He can’t build a wall.
He can’t specify that immigrants must be able to pay their own way.
He can’t levy tariffs.
He can’t negotiate new trade deals.
He can’t speak out against abortion.
He can’t try to cut off funding of abortion mills.
He can’t ignore wildly idiotic global warming nonsense.
He can’t shut down the ridiculous river/waters regulations.
He can’t fire his appointments.
He can’t run for office.
He can’t win an election.
He can’t demand Mexico help us with illegal immigration.
He can’t conduct foreign policy.
He can’t tell his Department of State what they must do. He has to ask them what to do.
He can’t cut taxes.
He can’t push for capitalism.
He can’t reduce unemployment. (Only Obama can)
He can’t take credit for the markets doing exactly what he said they would do if he cut taxes.
He can’t support Religious organizations.
He can’t prevent states from telling Religious institutions they must pay for abortions.
He can’t prevent states from demanding insurance cover abortions.
He can’t speak out in favor of gun rights.
He can’t challenge Leftist dogma.
He can’t our Leftist media for what it is doing, lying...
90% of the types of actions Obama took with no criticism, Trump is forbidden to do.
One wonders if the Leftists actually know he goes to the bathroom without asking, all by himself.
I left out many things.
The Left hasn’t wanted him to do anything.
He’s doing everything!
This is another Democrap standard play. I’ll wait to see the full quote in its actual context. Til then its hearsay and speculation.
John Bolton is a liar.
Never believe anything until it has been officially denied. Bolton was fired as a backstabber, and he intends to keep doing his work for the establishment.
If he was loyal he wouldn’t have even written this AT ALL.
