Impeachment Theater Today: Leaked Bolton Book Claims Ukraine Military Aid Held Over Investigations

It’s not like John Bolton might have an axe to grind after getting fired, and not like Trump was withholding all that military aid that Obama provided…oh, right, Obama sent blankets after Russia took part of Ukraine, and all the impeachment theater House managers voted against providing military aid to Ukraine

BREAKING: Bolton to Claim Trump Held Up Ukraine Military Aid Over Biden Investigations

John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, will claim in his upcoming book that the president wanted to withhold military aid from Ukraine until officials in the country announced investigations into Joe Biden and his family, the New York Times reported Sunday.

The stunning revelation comes as Trump battles an impeachment trial in the Senate over his efforts to have an investigation into his political rival announced by Ukraine, and undermines a chief argument of Republicans that military aid was not conditioned on such an announcement.

Per the Times:

Mr. Bolton’s explosive account of the matter at the center of Mr. Trump’s impeachment trial, the third in American history, was included in drafts of a manuscript he has circulated in recent weeks to close associates. He also sent a draft to the White House for a standard review process for some current and former administration officials who write books.

…

Over dozens of pages, Mr. Bolton described how the Ukraine affair unfolded over several months until he departed the White House in September. He described not only the president’s private disparagement of Ukraine but also new details about senior cabinet officials who have publicly tried to sidestep involvement.

Even if true, Joe Biden admitted to demanding that Ukraine fire the prosecutor investigating Burisma or he’d withhold a billion dollars in aid. That’s rather corrupt, is it not? Let’s also not forget that Biden was part of a presidential administration that spied on a GOP candidate. That they went to a FISA court under false pretenses to get warrants to spy on Donald Trump, his campaign, and his associates. Might Trump have wanted some payback? This is politics. People need to get over the pig in the mud stuff that occurs.

Then you have Trump responding with multiple tweets

I NEVER told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens. In fact, he never complained about this at the time of his very public termination. If John Bolton said this, it was only to sell a book. With that being said, the transcripts of my calls with President Zelensky are all the proof that is needed, in addition to the fact that President Zelensky & the Foreign Minister of Ukraine said there was no pressure and no problems. Additionally, I met with President Zelensky at the United Nations (Democrats said I never met) and released the military aid to Ukraine without any conditions or investigations – and far ahead of schedule. I also allowed Ukraine to purchase Javelin anti-tank missiles. My Administration has done far more than the previous Administration.

Does Bolton have any concrete proof?

    And there you have it. John Bolton. A neoconservative that wanted to invade the entire middle east. A man Hated and laothed by the very people now impeaching Trump. A man Donald Trump hired because he is such a narcissist that he thought he could waltz into the DC swamp and remain untouched and unfazed by Adam Schiff, John Bolton, Jerry Nadler and the likes of Mitt Romney and all the other powerful men who make the presidents power look like he is a kindergarten teacher in the middle of Alaska.

    The president has repeatedly hired former SWAMP residents to work for him whose sole goal was to leak stuff, block the president at every turn and dig up dirt on Trump so this could happen.

    President Trump is being BRET KAVANAUGHED right before our eyes.

    The trial will show just how badly even the GOP want him gone. They don’t want him to fix things. DC on both sides dont want to fix anything. They want to hold on to their power and keep the people hating the other side.

    We hated each other when Carter or Reagan or Bush or Clinton or Bush or Obama were in office. Just as much as today.

    IF the senate Impeaches Trump with just a single GOP senator they will have destroyed the presidency. IF the American people reward the Democrats by giving them the house after the Bret Kavanaugh hearing and in this case give the Democrats the senate or presidency after impeaching Trump over policy agreements then they will have won. the greatest political victory in the history of America.

    Trump is being BRET KAVANAUGHED. America is letting it happen. The MSM is helping us to a banana republic.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Attacking the messenger, in this case John Bolton, doesn’t address the issue.

      We understand that trump supporters want this all to go away, but it won’t.

      Trump is being held accountable for his actions. It is trump and the GOP who will have harmed the Republic if this President is allowed to do whatever he wants.

        Bolton’s manuscript leaks as memoir pre-orders begin on Amazon; Trump fires back

        HOWEVER COMMRADE

        The drama began earlier Sunday when the Times exclusively reported that Bolton’s manuscript included a claim that Trump explicitly linked a hold on Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden. Trump told Bolton in August, according to a transcript of Bolton’s forthcoming book reviewed by the Times, “that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens.”

        The messenger here is NOT Bolton but the TIMES making a claim that is not corroborated in the middle of an Impeachment Trial.

        LIES.

        Why could they possibly be lying?

        A “pre-publication review” at the NSC, which functions as the White House’s national security forum, is standard for any former government officials who held security clearances and publicly write or speak publicly about their official work. The review typically would focus on ferreting out any classified or sensitive material in advance of publication, and could take from days to months.

        Unless Bolton wants to go to jail he would have had to give his book to the NSC for review and this certainly would have been edited out.

        So we have two possible scenarios here.

        ONE is the NSA left this in to GET TRMUMP
        TWO the TIMES is making shit up in the middle of the Presidents Impeachment. Either one of which is a horrible thing to happen in America.

        The left has turned America into a shit show and a banana Republic.

        Attacking the messenger. Damn right. Your messengers are full of lies, and hatred for this president and this country. COMMRADE.

        Really? Is that why Gropin’ Joe is now a distant third in IA?

        Is that why as many as 3 Demos Senators may vote to acquit?

  2. Chumpchange says:

    Trump is being “”BRET KAVANAUGHED””. America is letting it happen. The MSM is helping us to a banana republic.

    HOW SO YOU ASK????

    AOC campaigning for Bernie Sanders announced yesterday that Americans should warn illegals of ICE or CBP coming for them.

    The democrats want no borders now. Its not just extrapolation by the right, it is announced policy by the LEFT.

    In the democrats world they would do away with Customs and Border Patrol which not only prevents illegals from flooding the country but they do other things.

    IN THE DEMOCRATS WORLD THEY WANT:

    Iran to send 1000’s of agents to America to poison your drinking water and attempt to assassinate our leaders.

    They want Russia and China to be allowed to send hundreds of spies into our country and steal everything we own and take it back to their countries unimpeded.

    They want criminals of the worst imaginable order to flock into our country and commit atrocities without the least bit of hindrance at the borders or at any airport in the nation because that is what CBP does.

    They want to fill our country with Drugs, Drugs, and More Drugs. Our entire nation will be filled with drugs unimpeded from entering our country Illegally.

    The list is endless of having no ICE and NO Customs and Border Patrol protecting Americans from the harm that is awaiting us.

    This is what electing Democrats. These democrats. THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHERS PARTY ANY LONGER PEOPLE. This is a party full of insane radicals that would harm every American in the name of Social Justice.

    To them, America owes the world and in so doing the 325 million Americans must pay a price for their privilege of living in a great country. That price will the lives of 10’s of thousands. Perhaps millions with the flooding of drugs and the deadly pathogens allowed to just waltz into our country UNIMPEDED because AOC is now leading the Democrats and she wants those agencies gone.

    The democratic party is not the party of Kennedy or even Bill Clinton. It is something else. It is the party of XI, and the Ayatollah and Putin and the millions and millions who want to kill Americans and destroy everything we are.

    The new Democratic party by Ommission will allow that to happen to YOU and YOUR family. And it starts with Impeaching Kavanaugh and Trump, packing the supreme court and eliminating parts of the constitution they do not like.

    Time to stand America. Stand against these radicals who would destroy America from within.

        Any time a Lefty tries to make you sound like you’re paranoid, you know you’ve just hit the truth.

      • Chumpchange says:

        AOC and Bernie Sanders call for OPEN BORDERS. They finally admit it, they want to remove all law enforcement, removing ICE & CBP, abolish all checks into the USA, no passport, no checks, open borders. The globalist agenda is here.

        While Campaigning for Bernie.

        But many on the left and many Democrats have argued that this doesn’t mean we will have open borders. People will still be screened upon entry right?

        Well not only did they then say they would decriminalize illegal border crossings, but Ocasio Cortez has also straight up said she wants ICE and CBP to be broken up and that Bernie Sanders has pledged to do it. Bernie was there as she said it as it was his own rally.

        DO NOT BE DECEIVED THE LEFT WILL SAY THESE RADICAL THINGS TO GET THE NOMINATION THEN PRETEND TO BE MODERATE TO WIN THE GENERAL ELECTION AND THEN…..THEN…..THEN…..SWING FAR LEFT AND DO ALL THESE THINGS THEY PROMISED THEIR BASE.

        the only one making shit up here Elwood is YOU.

    Teach
    Obama never withheld aid that the GOP Congress had appropriated
    It seems likeTrump has a difficult time keeping his closest aides with th king g G or him
    Obama never had near that many people leaving his administration

      That’s because Hussein was beloved among mooslems, leftists and communists worldwide. Everyone including assholes like you who hate America loved the Mocha god. He/She/it was untouchable even after sending weapons to Mexican cartels used to kill hundreds of civilians, allowing 4 Americans including an ambassador to be murdered in Benghazi, shipping pallets of cash to terrorists, lying about Husseincare, filing false FISA warrents to spy on Trump etc, etc,etc. The man was a fraud and a pimp. And his wife is an ugly Wookiee.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        The trump “defense” strategy is clear now. The White House had the Bolton manuscript for nearly a month, and the objective was to have a Senate vote before it was leaked. It’s likely that Speaker Pelosi knew this as well and may have delayed sending the House Articles of Impeachment to the Senate.

        Is trump more honest than Mr. Bolton? It will be interesting to see if the trump “defense” now changes their “strategy” from lying to whatever else they can think of.

        No wonder they were in a hurry to settle this thing and had no intention of swearing in Bolton.

        Kye: And you say you’re not a very good racist. You’re excellent. Even reaching back into the Obama years to insult people not involved in this at all.

        You seem to have gone off the deep end. Does PA have a red flag policy?

        BTW: Republican Senators were cancelling appearances on talk shows this AM to “review” what has happened. Will a few defect and allow Bolton to testify under oath? Stay tuned.

        It’s always possible that trump and Bolton leaked misinformation to “pimp” the NYTs and the media.

          The issue is where the Gray Lady is lying, as she has so often done.

          No wonder they were in a hurry to settle this thing and had no intention of swearing in Bolton.

          Well, let’s swear in Gropin’ Joe and Zippy and have them talking about holding up aid because that’s what this has focused the public’s attention. And the public, even Democrats, seems to think Gropin’ Joe is the one with his hands in the cookie jar.

          And you say you’re not a very good racist. You’re excellent. Even reaching back into the Obama years to insult people not involved in this at all.

          And, yes, vagina, Zippy was very much involved in this, according to Gropin’ Joe.

          BTW: Republican Senators were cancelling appearances on talk shows this AM to “review” what has happened. Will a few defect and allow Bolton to testify under oath? Stay tuned.

          Really? Care to give us a link?

          Another October Surprise because the Demos have lost the Whigs and they’ve lost the people.

          It’s always possible that trump and Bolton leaked misinformation to “pimp” the NYTs and the media.

          Fake News never needs any help with that.

          • I think the Democrats have totally burned the “October Surprise” option. By playing this one out for 3+ years, They really could have video of Trump taking a bribe and Trump supporters would not believe them. You can only cry wolf so many times. The News media have shown themselves to be totally unreliable to report anything truthful about Trump. Democrats in the media have been dropping more bombshells than the US Air Force and still haven’t gotten a hit. I can’t imagine what the Dems come up with this October. Trump killed JKF?

    • formwiz says:

      Ah, but he did.

      Zippy was one of the most corrupt homosexuals we’ve ever had as Preezy.

  4. I am still greatly amused that the Democrats working in the news media still have zero curiosity about Biden’s corruption in the Ukraine and other places. Seems like the leader of their hopes to unseat Trump should get at least a little look.

    It’s not Trump’s fault that Biden is so corrupt. It is Trump’s job to investigate government corruption and to seek the cooperation of foreign countries when that corruption happens in those countries. in the past ten years $760 Billion dollars flowed out of the US treasury and into foreign countries. Does anyone seriously think that some of that didn’t stick to the palms of those who arranged it?

    • formwiz says:

      FWIW I don’t think anybody gets called, If Bolton, then Gropin’ Joe and Zippy, and the Demos can’t have that.
