@AmbJohnBolton didn't testify during impeachment of @realDonaldTrump because Bolton would've been under oath & would've had to contradict most, if not all, of his book's material.
John Bolton isn't a copious note taker, he's a serial composer of BS, lies, & deceit which is why he left the Bush Administration in 2006. He lied about being questioned in an investigation on a government form. He has been interviewed by DoS IG.
He couldn't get confirmed in the US Senate. It wasn't just that little lie that was uncovered that doomed his confirmation. It was also the one about the UN weapons inspector he lied about to get him fired.…
Bolton went as far as to fly to Europe in the scheme to get Jose Bustani fired. Bolton also reportedly made threats such as, "we know where you kids live."…
Why did Bolton want Bustani fired so badly? B/c Bustani went against the Bolton claims that Iraq had massive stockpiles of WMD, not that they could resume these programs, but had the actual WMD.
Bolton had advocated for the invasion of Iraq during the Clinton Administration calling on then President Bill Clinton to oust Saddam. While under secretary of state for arms control he told the BBC, "Iraq has hidden WMD & production facilities in Iraq."
Yet, none of Bolton's allegations were true. Most of this information came from a polluted source pool of the Iraqi National Congress headed by Ahmed Chalabi (he became anti American when he lost the PM slot).
What kind of deal did John Bolton make with Ahmed Chalabi's INC? Did he make nuanced suggestions of the Prime Minister position to Chalabi?
What else did Mr. Bolton know at the time that he later decided to fabricate intelligence to support those claims? John Bolton was @realDonaldTrump's worst hire. Normally, I believe in giving a person a chance, unless that person is John Bolton.
Bolton is a civilian version of Jim Mattis. He's good for one liners, but he's terrible at getting things done. Bolton was released from the NSA post b/c @realDonaldTrump wasn't willing to invade every country on John Bolton's wish list.
Bolton fired people that didn't tow the line of his desires for what should happen. Bolton put HIS policies before the president, that includes when he served Bush as well. Trump figured this out during some of the heated clashes between Bolton & others.
Bolton hires people that will trumpet him like a conquering hero. I have news for Bolton, his inner circle isn't as tight as he thinks it is. You were a turd in the Bush Administration and became an even bigger turd because you just kept growing stopping up the toilet.
Recap, Bolton didn't testify b/c he'd have been under oath & all his book BS would be disputed by everybody else that testified after he made his claims. He'd also have had to perjure himself isn't that right @PressSec ? We know Bolton is a bull shitter. That's all he's ever been
Bolton fabricated some of his intelligence for the Iraq War. If Democrats want to hear from him so bad, bring him up and ask him about that!…
