Partisan Media Shills update.
Replace *political* with *corruption* and the truth emerges. DJT can’t help that a corrupt Biden announced his candidacy to cover his ass.
This comes from the Council on Foreign Relations John Bolton, not the honest John Bolton he portrays in public.
What have you gained for this price, John?
“Alan Dershowitz (sp?) said today, that even if all of the Democrats allegations were true, that it doesnt rise to an impeachable offense.”
And he’s correct. Of course Chris Wallace -if that’s the appearance you are referring to- embarrassed himself by doing his best dem rebuttal.
The RATS are throwing everything at Trump including the kitchen sink. What a sad bunch!
The House didn't follow its own rules re: impeachment, so Trump is free to tell them to pound sand. You know that old saying from Napoleon.
OK. Not a crime. Financial aid *should* be contingent on investigations of fraud. Right?
Yeah, that’s the one.
I got to give Wallace credit though. He sounded like he was really prepared for that interview, even though he was taking a hard left stance.
Dershowitz handled himself well.
yeah but not seeing anything about the info being false
thats been a strategy from the start...the media and opponents simply act like hes not the President...from executive privilege to military matters to firing ambassadors etc...
In a statement obtained by Fox News, Bolton attorney Charles Cooper lamened that the review process had been "corrupted."
"On December 30, 2019, I submitted, on behalf of Ambassador Bolton, a book manuscript to the National Security Councils Records Management Division for standard prepublication security review for classified information. As explained in my cover letter to Ellen J. Knight, Senior Director of the Records Management Division, we submitted the manuscript notwithstanding our firm belief that the manuscript contained no information that could reasonably be considered classified and on the assurance that the 'process of reviewing submitted materials is restricted to those career government officials and employees regularly charged with responsibility for such reviews' and that the 'contents of Ambassador Boltons manuscript will not be reviewed or otherwise disclosed to any persons not regularly involved in that process.'"
Cooper continued: "A copy of my December 30 letter is attached. It is clear, regrettably, from The New York Times article published today that the prepublication review process has been corrupted and that information has been disclosed by persons other than those properly involved in reviewing the manuscript."
Bolton resigned last September. His team declined to "speculate" to Fox News as to how a description of his manuscript might have leaked to the Times.
Additionally, Bolton's representatives made clear he was not denying the Times' claim concerning the Ukraine aid holdup and the possible investigation of the Bidens.
This looks like a planned setup by Bolton and his attorney.
The newsgasms at the Gnu Yak Times tonight are obscene.
Republicans need to get this impeachment over with fast before any more facts come out.
Seditious leak from the NSC to NY Times during an impeachment trial? Heads should roll down the White House lawn for this. They won’t, of course.
Bolton’s people are also not denying it.
I read somewhere the Pubs are going after Biden tomorrow. I truly believe destroying Slow Joe is crucial to the defense.
Take him out.
This gives cover to Romney and others
