Judge Napolitano: Mitch McConnell was blindsided, should have been told about Bolton 'bombshell'


The Trump administration should have told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., about the "bombshell" allegations contained in former National Security Adviser John Bolton's new book, Judge Andrew Napolitano said Tuesday.
This weekend, a report in The New York Times revealed an excerpt from the forthcoming book titled "The Room Where it Happened" – an apparent reference to the Broadway musical "Hamilton" – that could prove pivotal in the impeachment trial against President Trump.
In it, Bolton wrote that the president told him in August that he wanted to continue to freeze almost $400 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats, including the Biden family.
Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, Napolitano said since the release of part of the manuscript, the issue has become whether or not Bolton will testify before House managers and the Senate in the impeachment trial.

  1. Hee hee. If they get John Bolton to testify it is going going to be a huge disappointment and lead to bolstering the case against removing the President from office.

    How do I know this? Because if Bolton had such juicy stuff, he should have revealed it directly to the House or the media. But, no! He writes a book you have to buy and then somehow abstracts of excerpts get leaked at exactly the moment that the book's contents have their most value.

    Next month, and we're on to the election. A book by a former directer of the National Security Council? That's history. This month, however, seems like everybody wants an advance copy hot off the press.
