Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's former national security adviser John Bolton claims to have privately told Attorney General William Barr last year that he was concerned the President was granting favors to the autocratic leaders of China and Turkey, The New York Times reported Monday, citing multiple people's descriptions of an unpublished draft manuscript by Bolton.
Barr told Bolton in response that he worried Trump had created the appearance of undue influence over two Justice Department investigations of companies in China and Turkey, which are traditionally independent inquiries, the draft manuscript says, according to the Times.

I never liked him - nothing worse than a war monger AND chicken hawk at the same time, but most, including me, had some respect for his character.
His name is MUDD.
Neo-Con jerk, so anxious to stab Trump and Republicans in the back. Heads on a pike, here is first deserving person.
Ok, a here we are AGAIN.
Leaks about a thing that nobody has seen, but the leaker is characterizing. This is otherwise known as heresay. It is also known as same poop, another day.
The witness is the manuscript. The manuscript, like the call transcript should be released ASAP.
Oh, it will screw Boltons book sales to have this released so everyone can read it for free. But hey, warmonger Johnny should have thought about that before he pulled this stunt.
And kudos to Laura Ingraham tonight for promising Mitt (sounds like sh_t) to show up and cover his townhall meetings if he votes with the Dems on witnesses.
He has never accomplished a thing. Just another dud who has always lived off the government grift.
The next Leak and/or Lie.
If this turns out to be a lie, Then Bolton needs to sue them.
(not that I put it past Bolton to have said and leaked it himself.)
Bolton must be just about ready to retire, and stay retired.
After this little Book Exclusive caper, no presidential administration in their right mind would allow John Bolton anywhere near the White House. He is now known across the land as a Backstabber.
Agree...the Left has always hated his guts and now he has p.o.ed the rest of us...wonder where he thinks he can go next...the book better bring in some bucks because he is finished in Washington...nobody is going to return his calls.
This impeachment is about policy disagreements, and the President is on the side of a majority of American voters.
President Trump can't give any aid to any country that Congress hasn't authorized.
I thought this was all about how he supposedly didn't give aid to Ukraine. What happened to that? Where's the whistleblower? Is Bolton now the whistleblower?
So what. Next.
Tomorrows hearings should be even better.
Trump Rally tomorrow. Life is Good!
Once again, even if true, it’s a matter of opinion.
Democrats want policy of their enemies to be crime.
Policy issue. Not even close to being impeachable. If it was, every President since G. Washington would have been
Bolton’s idea of doing favors for autocrats is Trump talking directly to them without preconditions and without following a predetermined script from NSC and State.
Yes, this was great.
Classic. CNN reporting that the New York Times has reported that several unnamed people have described an unpublished manuscript.
New York Times. #FakeNews
