Don't even think that, let alone say anything.
The thread of Freepers apologizing for doubting Bolton will turn into a flood and take down the FR website.
There will be thousands of apologies.
Also that or not wanting to hear what he has to say after a few a his star witnesses didnt pan out the way he wanted. Time will tell IMHO.
He called Trump/Ukraine conversations a “drug deal” and hated Guilianna. I don’t trust Bolton at all. He’s probably mad that he didn’t get a war to run too.
Well, we’ll see.
Look, Bolton will stand on his own. My voice isn’t going to mean anything if he is a stand up guy in all this.
He will come off looking very good if he stands by reasoned values.
If he does, he’ll certainly have my support for having done so.
Some of these long term government folks go South. At times you find out they were never who you thought they were. You may have had a common ground intersect moment, which misled you to believe you did have the same views across the board.
I hope Bolton does prove my misgivings wrong.
They’re not subpoenas. Shifty doesn’t have that authority...
As I understand it, they are not issuing subpoenas because that will throw it to the courts. That would delay the proceedings. It can be looked at either way by Bolton. On one hand he may want to testify, on the other he may just want the delay.
Trust....I trust him. He's a good guy. Would never do anything to harm the Presidency.
From what I have surmised by several articles, they don’t want to test their subpoena power in court because of the cluster-f_ck way of authorizing the impeachment.
A second issue is that Bolton was very close to DJT. This would weigh heavily toward executive privilege being valid. Not a good test case from the RAT perspective.
Someone less close to the President would be a better test case for them.
Not that I think it would fool the court.
They are waiting on court decision which is now at DC Apeals level. If anyone thinks DC court is going to rule in FAVOR of DOJ vs HJC over getting grand jury documents and forcing WH officials to testify (judicial order) it’s a very slim chance.
Thing is with Bolten, you do not know what you are going to get.
The conservative Bolten, or the one who left the his position in a spat with Trump.
He could totally push Trump under the bus, or bend over backwards to defend Trump.
Neither side (R’s and D’s) do not know what he will do.
“I think they may have figured out that Bolton is planning on telling them things they dont want to hear.”
I think you’re on target. Bolton was setting up Schiff and would’ve beaten him like a stray dog.
Everyone seems to think that Bolton won’t try to sink Trump, the man who sent him packing. The hints seem to be that he would love to spill bad news. Am I reading this wrong?
I think you’re spot on.
Actually, if the Congress had the guts to use them, there are 2 checks (besides funding) they can use. Impeachment and the power to establish inferior courts.
Neither is a check.
Oliver North redux. They were all getting hot to impeach Reagan for Iran Contra and Oliver North blew it all out of the water.
