Former National Security Advisor John Bolton is a one-man guided missile aimed at the Trump administration.
Bolton is leaking like crazy in hopes of helping the Democrats impeach the President.
But now Donald Trump just shut down John Bolton. And here is how he did it.
John Bolton’s forthcoming book The Room Where it Happened is the source of the Democrats’ 11th hour push to extend the impeachment witch hunt by calling new witnesses.
In the book, Bolton claims the President admitted to him that military aid to Ukraine was linked to that country announcing investigations into Joe and Hunter Biden’s corruption.
The New York Times reported this bombshell on January 26.
On Wednesday, it became clear why Bolton’s book leaked.
That’s because on January 23 the National Security Council fired off a letter to Bolton saying his book contained a mountain of classified information and that it could not be published in its current form.
“Under federal law and the nondisclosure agreements your client signed as a condition for gaining access to classified information, the manuscript may not be published or otherwise disclosed without the deletion of this classified information,” the National Security Council’s Senior Director for Records, Access, and Information Security Management Ellen Knight wrote to Bolton’s lawyer Chuck Cooper.
Bolton’s book was supposed to be published in March.
But the process for revising a book to prevent the disclosure of classified information could take months.
This letter explained why Bolton’s book leaked to The New York Times when it did.
The truth about the leak of Bolton’s book only added to Republican skepticism of Bolton and his claims.
Bolton is not some principled truth teller.
Instead, Bolton is a greedy, backstabbing bureaucrat that wants to exact political revenge on President Trump because the President fired Bolton for not supporting the President’s agenda.
