Trump asked China to help him win in 2020, offered 'favours to dictators,' John Bolton says in book

Ex-adviser says Trump sought to stop criminal inquiries

Thomson Reuters · Posted: Jun 18, 2020 1:11 AM ET | Last Updated: 3 hours ago

In a withering behind-the-scenes portrayal, U.S. President Donald Trump's former national security adviser John Bolton accused him of sweeping misdeeds that included explicitly seeking Chinese President Xi Jinping's help to win re-election.

I hope this books makes it to the general public as it should be read by EVERYONE!. If it doesn't, there are still hundreds of copies out there already. This book will only add to the fact that Trump is the biggest asswipe to ever be the US president and should really be in jail IMHO. He's a liar and a crook and doesn't give a rats ass about Americans in general. It's all about him. He would kill his own mother for power and money.

while i think bolton is rather sleazy and an idiot in general, i do absolutely love what he has done here.

im fairly certain bolton timed this and planned it out specifically to damage the right.

during the impeachment, bolton said he would only testify if republicans commanded it. obviously the right had absolute zero desire to let him testify. i think bolton was testing them to see if they were gonna back trump no matter what or if they would do right by the country. these predictably chose trump over the country, and i think thats when bolton decided to write the book and time it to a little while before the election.


i honestly think he gave them plenty of room and space to fuck the country with their bullshit during the impeachment, and now he is gonna fuck trump and them for it HARD.

and just as trump usually does, he really made it worse trying to block the book. because of review copies, a lot of the most damaging info is already out there, and its much worse than the info presented in the impeachment. all trump is doing by trying to stop it is making people pay attention more and driving up the anticipation and sales.


the right and trump absolutely deserve the beating theyre about to get. would never have expected it from bolton, but they deserve it for the shit theyve pulled the last 4 years, and good on him for choosing country over party.

Bolton could have testified before Congress, that was dick move - and still published the book later. He's a jerk, but you are right - he has the WH up in a giant panty wad about this. It's fun to watch! popcorn

Trump hired Bolton knowing he was a demented, shady, petulant, loud-mouth war hawk. We are never going to get anything good from either of them.

Bolton is a grade A asshole. Shows exactly what kind of piece of shit he is that he shuns testifying at a congressional impeachment hearing, made himself available for the senate hearing knowing full well they would not call him and then collects $$$ for a tell-all. I hate that he is getting money and notoriety out of this book, but if it causes even a small bit of damage to the trump re-election campaign and helps Biden get elected, maybe it's worth it.

UPDATE:



U.S. judge rules John Bolton can publish book despite efforts by Trump administration to block it


A federal judge ruled Saturday that former U.S. national security adviser John Bolton can move forward in publishing his tell-all book despite efforts by the Trump administration to block the release because of concerns that classified information could be exposed.



The decision from U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth is a victory for Bolton in a court case that involved core First Amendment and national security concerns.
