Trump's White House is 'like living inside a pinball machine,' says John Bolton



WASHINGTON - If he was a senator during President Donald Trump's impeachment earlier this year, John Bolton said he would have voted for a confidence vote.


Trump's former national security adviser, with an explosive new book about his former boss, refused to testify at the House impeachment hearing on Tuesday, as Cena offered to testify at the Senate hearing on the case. ; Senate Republicans refused to make late vows before the vote.

But on that, as with most things, Bolton is not unanimous about his decisions. He went to court to stop the publication of the book and try to seize its actions, especially if he was not the one who gave second thoughts or was inspired by the world's most powerful man.

Witness what happened when his interview with USA Today ended Thursday: Bolton stood up to pose for a photo, holding a copy of "The Room Where It Happens", published by Simon & Schuster. "Shall I hold it like that?" He asked with a wide grin, raising it to the head.

He accidentally mocked Trump's controversial photo op when he placed the Bible in front of President St. John's Church after protesters in Lafayette Square, Washington, were removed from their sidewalks.

There is no disclosure of classified information to report that the relationship between the former National Security Adviser and the President has become somewhat rocky.

Bolton: The prosecutor's firing may be in line with what he saw
The book featured an undesirable piece this week when the Trump administration ousted U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Burman for the Southern District of New York. When Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan complained about an official investigation into a Turkish state-owned bank in December 2018, Bolton wrote, "Trump then told Erdogan to" take care of things "after he turned" to take his people to the Southern District collectors. "

"I don't think we know at this time," Bolton said in a brief follow-up interview on Sunday as to whether Turkey Bank was involved in the shootings, known as Halkbank. But he said it was "consistent with the president's attitude toward the investigation when viewed at the White House."

Four months before the election, the 71-year-old Bolton comes out with a book that inspires Trump to be incompetent, useless, vicious, uncertain, foreign forces, hurt by his revenge and driven by his selfishness - in a word, an unworthy president. “We are proud to have not learned much about the subject of national security,” Bolton said. "It's like being inside the pinball machine," he said, urging Trump to work in the White House.

Insult President Bolton responded with accounts of the book. He told POLITICO that his former top aides were a "sick customer" and that some of his White House colleagues were "absolutely insane." For Sean Hannity on Fox News, he called Bolton "a washed up man." On Twitter, he added "Waco John Bolton" to a "disgruntled boring idiot," "What a dope!" "

Bolton's response?

"You know, whoever hired Bolton should be fired," Bolton said dryly. Of course, that would be Trump. "I have been accused of many things in my career. I have never been accused of hiding my thoughts. So I think he knows what he is getting into," he told Bolton, one of the most powerful servants. At the White House in April 2018.

He will remain for 17 months until Bolton resigns (Bolton) or Trump removes him (Trump says).

'John, great work!'
There are happy times in the Bolton downtown office. Gift of Ivanka Trump - A massive print of Wall Street Journal Illustration hangs on a wall in which Trump, Bolton, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lead the way to the chessboard from Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.

"John Coe," Trump wrote with a black Sharpie on top of his distinctive signature. "Good work!"

The Trump administration did more than just talk about the book. The Justice Department last week asked a federal judge to stop its publication, a request that was rejected by a judge on Saturday. "For unspecified reasons, the court does not order the seizure of the country and the destruction of political memory," writes U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth. The publisher testified that 200,000 copies of the book had already been sent and its contents were reported in news outlets around the world.

Judge Bolton said he was "a threat to national security" by the inclusion of classified material and could be held legally liable for failing to complete the review process before publication when he received his security clearance. After the administration initially approved the book, Bolton said the review process was abused to delay publication due to political reasons.

So far, the president's brutal response seems to be boosting Bolton's revenue. "The Room Where It Happened," which Bolton received 2 million before, topped Amazon.com. Advance sales make it the best-selling book in the country.

The House is accused of misconduct

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also condemned the book, but not because of the malicious accusations against the Bolton president. This is because he does not make them quickly.

"He chose royalty over patriotism," he told reporters, calling his decision not to give "egotistical" testimony at the House's impeachment hearing. Pelosi said many Senate Republicans have said that Bolton's account did not change his view of voting to oust Trump.

Bolton has now confirmed the basics of the Democratic case against Trump over Ukraine. He said the president was clearly linked to the release of US political aid to Ukraine's investigation into its political opponents. Although he was acquitted by the Republican-controlled Senate, the charge persuaded the Democratic-controlled House to impeach the president.

"I think I probably voted," Bolton said, "but honestly, we still don't know everything there is to know about Ukraine. Most behavior can be condemned without implication."

Bolton accused the House of "misconduct of impeachment" for not launching a comprehensive and lengthy investigation, which is still ongoing. For example, in an episode reminiscent of Ukraine, Trump sought election help from China.

According to Bolton, at a summit in Japan last year, Trump asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to increase the purchase of American soybeans and wheat to help re-election prospects in agricultural states. Bolton wrote, "He begged the Shia that they would win." Bolton said he recorded Trump's exact words but was ordered to remove the text from the government review process.

Trump’s backstage is Bolton’s character, from shocking to comic. At one point, Bolton said Trump did not know that Great Britain was a nuclear power. (This has been going on since 1952.) Second, he asked if Finland was part of Russia. (D.)

Although the publishing of books about Trump has become the cottage industry in the world, Bolton is Trump's highest authority to portray the president in such a horrifying light. President George W. He has credentials of a conservative who has worked for the last three Republican administrations, including the U.N. for Bush. Be an ambassador.

Bolton argues that Trump's electoral loss from his book is more problematic than his testimony, and it is more appropriate for Congress. “Abuse is a guarded train that can only be used in odd situations,” he says. "The real protector of the Constitution is rail selection."

Bolton said he voted for Trump in 2016, but did not vote for him in November. Joe Biden will not vote for the Democratic nominee on national security policy and his party will not approve.

Instead, he said he plans to write in the name of a conservative leader.

Did he go to Lafayette Park?

Bolton packed up his office and left the White House on September 10th.

A lot has happened since then. This is the report that Whistleblower complained about a week ago about Trump's phone call with the Ukrainian president. Two months before China confirmed the first case of the coronavirus novel. Nationwide protests against police violence and racial injustice will not begin until this spring. Trump has not crossed Lafayette Square, approved the protests, and kept the Bible until this month.

Bolton now thinks of the moment as iconic, which is another example of the basic research of his book. After the photo op, Joint Secretaries President, Defense Secretary Mark Oslo, and General Mark Miley said they were wrong to participate, which opened up an extraordinary public disagreement between the president and the country's military leaders.

"Everything in the administration is in danger of meeting Donald Trump's personal needs," Bolton told USA Today. "This is happening again and again. It's about combining legitimate government interests with Donald Trump's personal interests." He can stage the photo ops he wants, but Bolton says, "But if the president wants a photo op, just stand there."

If he was still in the White House, would he go around the intersection with him?

Bolton said, "I have to say with a lot of sanities. That was the only moment he seemed rude." I regret it later. "
