Former National Security Advisor John Bolton is out for revenge with his Trump-bashing book.
But on the day Bolton’s book leaked, he ran into one giant problem.
And Bolton’s book just crashed and burned because of this bombshell testimony.
Fake news reporters at The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal celebrated Bolton’s trashing of Trump even though they spent the previous 20 years disparaging Bolton as a warmonger.
The Amazon-owned Washington Post published one anecdote from Bolton’s book where Bolton claimed President Trump begged Chinese President Xi Jing Ping to interfere in the 2020 election by upping China’s purchase of agricultural products.
“He then, stunningly, turned the conversation to the coming U.S. presidential election, alluding to China’s economic capability to affect the ongoing campaigns, pleading with Xi to ensure he’d win,” Bolton claimed. “He stressed the importance of farmers, and increased Chinese purchases of soybeans and wheat in the electoral outcome. I would print Trump’s exact words but the government’s prepublication review process has decided otherwise.”
U.S. Trade Representative Rob Lighthizer testified under oath before the Senate that this was completely untrue.
“Absolutely untrue, never happened. I was there, I have no recollection of that ever happening. I don’t believe it’s true, I don’t believe it ever happened,” Lighthizer testified.
“Would I have recollected something as crazy as that? Of course I would,” Lighthizer added.
Attorney General William Barr previously denied Bolton’s claims when they were initially leaked in January at the tail end of the impeachment hoax.
Bolton has a severe credibility problem.
Critics contend the reason Bolton never testified in the impeachment hoax was they believe Bolton would perjure himself if he repeated any of these stories under oath.
So instead Bolton saved them for a book where he could cash in and inflict political damage on President Trump.
