He’s not messing around.
According to the Daily Caller, former Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy slammed former National Security Advisor John Bolton for flaunting his book against President Donald Trump.
“Hot off the presses, brand-new excerpts from John Bolton’s book released tonight ahead of its publication on June 23rd,” MacCallum began. “In them, he accuses the president of abusing his power and soliciting help from China for the upcoming election. John Bolton describing a meeting with President XI last June, writing this. ‘Trump said approvingly that there was great hostility to China among the Democrats. He then stunningly turned the conversation to the coming U.S. Presidential election, pleading with XI to ensure that he would a win. I would print Trump’s exact words,’ he writes, ‘but the government’s pre-prepublication review process decided otherwise.”
“John Bolton’s argument now is that Trump is unfit for office and should be removed, that he’s committed high crimes and misdemeanors,” Gowdy replied. “Now, he had a chance to go before the House, he didn’t do it. He had a chance to go before the Senate, he didn’t do it. He had a chance to come on your show or some other host’s show and answer tough questions, but no, for $29.95, he’s going to save you from this existential threat to our republic. I think people are smart enough to know, Bolton, if you really think he’s unfit to be the leader of the free world, why didn’t you say anything? Why do I have to buy your book to get that?”
“He ain’t being cross-examined, he’s sitting in his pajamas pecking away on his iPad. The power of cross-examination is you actually have to withstand the cauldron, I mean, withstand the heat of being questioned on it, I mean anybody can write a book and make assertions,” He explained. “Can you answer questions under cross-examination from the House or the Senate? Apparently he couldn’t, ’cause he didn’t.” You can read the full article here.
