Wonder if Bolton wrote a fictional account to help track deep state leakers and will denounce his own script when under oath...
I’ve always been of the opinion that the president could ask for an investigation of the Bidens about corruption in Ukraine if he wanted to do so. There’s nothing illegal about it given the suspicious facts we already know.
The president has not stated that he did ask for a perfectly legal review by both the DOJ and by the Ukrainians, so I’ve always assumed he wouldn’t be denying something that’s perfectly legal.
Therefore, if he says he didn’t do so, then he didn’t do so. Why deny doing something that you’re allowed to do?
The president of the US and the president of Ukraine and everyone else who had DIRECT knowledge of the conversation said there was no quid pro quo.
I feel the urge to write myself an unpublished manuscript and leak it anonymously. :-\ Seriously, did Bolton verify he said this? No. If he did, would it change the facts? No. Even if the President HAD initially planned to tie our tax dollar support to an investigation, would that be illegal? No.
This is nothing but more smoke and mirrors from the fake news jokers.
If Bolton is a decent human being he would speak up now and say his manuscript suggests no such thing.
IIRC trump said he wanted to put a hold to investigate corruption
Obviously Democrat involement (biden)= corruption
another blatant case of "Yellow Journalism" and biased propaganda by the Insurgent democrats and their tools the fake news media attempting to overthrow our current form of government
I am a Trump supporter not a Republican - the Republican Establishment stabbed Nixon in the back after he gave them the biggest electoral victory since before FDR, so if you are not worried you are in Normie Blue Pill world. I don’t trust these back stabbing Bush neocon GOP Establishment cucks.
> so if you are not worried you are in Normie Blue Pill world
I’m probably 20 years further down this path than you.
Let me give you some advice from experience - eyes on the long game, don’t get dazzled by bullshit, and you can be serious and determined without engaging in worry. Worrying really does no good and distracts from cold analysis and planning.
I am angry that this coup against Trump was carried out by a coalition of Democrats, Neocon Republicans aka Bushites and careerist bureaucrats from Depts that Republicans foolishly backed once like the FBI, CIA and the Pentagon brass.
Don't get worked up. Just let it strengthen cold resolve, make a plan to do something about it and then do something about it.
Me, my latest is that I started a PAC in Virginia to bring the state back to the GOP.
Except there’s ZERO evidence of this. All the evidence shows the opposite.
I urged Trump to impale the establishment along Penn Avenue during the inauguration - the old Balkan ways are still the best. It got me banned from Twitter but worth it.
My personal fetish has to do with Communists and helicopters.
It's not a political investigation. It's a corruption investigation.
