Chuck Cooper, an attorney for former National Security Adviser John Bolton, said that Bolton’s book manuscript was submitted to the National Security Council for a standard review for classified information, but its contents appear to have been leaked to the New York Times.Cooper was reacting to a story in the Times that alleges President Donald Trump told Bolton that he wanted to withhold aid to Ukraine until it completed investigations Trump had requested. Cooper said in a statement: On December 30, 2019, I submitted, on behalf of Ambassador Bolton, a book manuscript to the National Security Council’s Records Management Division for standard prepublication security review

It is time for an understanding that anyone who works for the President is prohibited from writing a book for at least ten years after they leave their position. It is unseemly that these people write books within a few months or a year for no other reason than to line their pockets It’s just a gossipy cashing in that is very telling about the character of the author. Get close to an important person and write a book and get rich. I just don’t like it no matter who the subject of the book is about. These are not serious historical reads. They mostly are salacious self-serving money making schemes by people who pretend to be superior. John Bolton has been a real disappointment and I am sorry to say I ever thought differently. These disgruntled former employees really show a lack of character when they attempt to cash in this manner. Any fool would know not to write anything about the President and let it out of your hands in this political environment. Bolton knows the game and was playing it to his advantage. Even if the book was 100% pro-Trump, it is still a self-serving undertaking.

My guess is Bolton leaked it for media attention & book sales...he appears to be more corrupt than Comey, Scaramucci, George Conway & Cohen combined! I’m surprised at Bolton, he’s no Mattis. Something weird happens to people that Trump fires...I guess working in the WH must have been their only goal in life & they can’t handle not being in the big picture . The Democrat Media falling in love with Bolton was the first sign something was not quite right. Leaking at the exact time the impeachment trial is proceeding???

Clearly Bolton is turning out to be a self-serving warmonger who never should have been anywhere near the White House, Trump figured that out pretty quickly and fired him. Bolton allegedly saying what he did about Trump and Ukraine in his manuscript while trying to get a book deal at this particular time shows him to be a disloyal character who cannot be trusted, as his motto surely is, if you want to start a war, call Bolton.

I guess Schiff has decided the Senate Republicans are not going to vote for Witnesses, so this is his last ditch effort to get out what Bolton told him. So, he fired up his Snitches in the Intelligence department and guess what! We have a leak! It should NOT be allowed into this Trial. In fact, McConnell should call a vote to Acquit as soon as the Republican Team finishes their presentation!

Much has been spoken and written lately regarding the evangelical community's feelings toward President Trump, especially since the Christianity Today editorial calling for his removal from office was published last month. Many evangelicals continue to support him wholeheartedly because he has proven repeatedly that he can be trusted to keep his campaign promises and to govern faithfully and conservatively. Others vow never to support him because they feel that he "embodies the anti-Christian ethic."President Trump certainly has a "colorful" past, and that is the key reason why I did not support him in the Republican presidential primary of 2016.

It is an old rule of journalism that it is better to get it right than to get it first. But after seeing how reporters reacted Sunday to news of retired NBA star Kobe Bryant's death, you could be forgiven for thinking that such a rule no longer exists, if it ever existed at all. The former Los Angeles Laker was among nine people killed Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Southern California. The other victims include Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna, one of her teammates on her basketball team, the teammate’s parent, and the pilot. Those are the facts.

While better suited for a Robert Ludlum novel, it played out in real time over the past four years. (snip) Aside from the illegality of deceiving the FISA court, and the seditious efforts to remove a duly elected American president, it blows up all downstream Democrat, media, and deep state efforts to overturn the 2016 election.
