Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that an unpublished draft manuscript by former national security adviser John Bolton, which was reported by The New York Times, blasts another hole in President Trump's defense. According to the report, the manuscript alleges Trump wanted to continue holding military aid to Ukraine until the country helped with investigations into Democrats.

  1. Bolton is easily the bolt (pun intended) on Drumpf’s coffin.

  2. I don’t know Mr. Bolton, never met him, don’t know who he is or what he does. I take lots of pictures with thousands of people. I’ve never met the man…

    • If the president did nothing wrong and was focused on corruption, he’d let HIS officials who were in on it all testify under oath, the first hand witnesses…They’ll say he was innocent and was focused on corruption, right? They’ll say all this was normal and was of no concern; a “perfect call” right? Then he’ll be re-elected because their testimony proved impeachment was a hoax, right? Case closed🥴🥴

    • @Randy B
      Adam shifty has already had the chance to call him as a witness and changed his mind…
      The truth is already “out” so nothing else is coming out !
      Other than by comparison Trump is the cleanest president of all time … FACT ! ! ! !
      Its a pretty piss poor sorry place ppl come from to say Trump is guilty of anything !!

    • @Ricky Hill No offense but you are obviously deceived out of your gourd if you believe that. Believe what you wish (you will anyways), bro. See you at the polls this November. Take care, Randy

      It takes a sad piss poor excuse of a person to believe or say Trump is guilty !!
      He has done everything he promised he would do plus much much more !!!
      Open your eyes and look past your big noses democrats , the only lies are the ones your telling

  3. Look out, Iran; Donnie Dickhead needs another diversion.

  4. What did Bolton mean by “drug deal?” 🤔🤔

    It’s worth reading part of George Conway’s analysis of this:

    “From Trump on down, they all know how damning Bolton’s testimony would be to Trump’s defense. Indeed, the leak of what’s in Bolton’s book shows how disingenuous the president’s defense has been.

    Before the Senate on Saturday, deputy White House counsel Michael Purpura laid out the elements of that defense. Key among them: “Not a single witness testified that the President himself said there was any connection between any investigations and security assistance, a Presidential meeting, or anything else.”

    He continued: “Most of the Democrats’ witnesses have never spoken to the President at all, let alone about Ukraine security assistance.” And: “The Democrats’ entire quid pro quo theory is based on nothing more than the initial speculation of one person” — U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland.

    If Bolton testifies to what’s in his manuscript, these arguments, weak as they are, will collapse. The words will come from Trump’s mouth, because Bolton will have put them there. The direct witness whose absence Trump’s lawyers trumpeted will have appeared.

    And that witness would destroy the central defense Trump’s lawyers have raised. Which is that the call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was perfect — factually, legally, and constitutionally.

    In light of Trump’s own arguments, it would now be preposterous, if it ever wasn’t, for the Senate not to call Bolton as a witness. To refuse to do so would ensure that the trial would be recorded forever in history as a GOP-orchestrated farce.

    Trump’s own lawyers have framed the removal question as turning on proof of the president’s true motives. Well, here’s a witness who can tell us what the president, in a face-to-face conversation, said he wanted.

    Trump’s lawyers complain that no witness talked to Trump about the linkage between the aid and the investigation. Well, here’s Bolton, ready, willing, and able to testify.”

      Randy B seriously brother, I speak about something here that should concern us all… I will MORE than agree that there’s dirt, but there are DANGEROUS situations that have been pushed under the rug for years… Provable stuff…
      Who is Ed Buck?
      A major contributor to the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s campaign.
      Ed Buck murdered a homeless black man by overdosing him while trying to rape him.
      Another Epstein style slap on the wrist, care of the Obama administration DOJ… It’s also rumored that Ed Buck and Adam Schiff were lovers….

      Ask me about August 23rd 1987 in Saline County Arkansas!

      …..or you could look at it yourself…

      Steven Shepherd I assure you Sir, I am no dolt…..
      I can say without reservation that there will be an acquittal as well as an exspongement of record………..
      How am I so confident?

      The charges brought against the President are;
      Count #1.Abuse of power…
      Count #2. Obstruction of Congress…
      As to “Count #1…………………….
      The President, regardless of party, has the ability to increase, reduce or deny ANY export of ANY American materials without cause or circumstance at any time, as per our Constitution…. The Presidency holds title of CEO…

      As to Count #2……………………
      There is no such Constitutional charge that can be levied without first going to the courts….

      These are NOT the observations of a blind man… This is factual based on our laws…. This will end with acquittal based on the Constitutional standard and eventual exspongement of record for Donald J. Trump…..

      Because of this betrayal of our Constitution, it’s my belief that the Democratic party as a whole will fade into the background of history after A.G.Barr subits the full report and the people vote on November 3rd………………………………

  9. All roads lead to Trump…and from there, to Putin. Never forget Helsinki.

  10. They all were in the loop.

  11. “A President is impeachable if he attempts to subvert the Constitution.” – James Madison

    • @karenza t. Wall have you read it? You might want to read the Declaration of Independence while you are at it

    • @Just Me Think.
      2020 election cycle.
      28 senators leaving.
      If Trump were to garner the votes to win, it would be because of electoral college.
      Senate does not use college.
      House impeaches for second time just before election and holds articles until swearing in of new Senate. Taxes have been released. Bank records have been published.
      New Senate will be Democrat.
      Check out the demographic.
      Even when house goes republican, Senate goes democrat.
      House sends new articles moments after swearing in of new Senate.
      It’s a done deal.
      Trump is removed in 2021.
      This is the plan B.
      When people demonstrate how to, before they commit to the act.
      Pelosi has only been campaigning. The true strike is yet to come. College age voter will determine the new Senate. Just look at the demographic. Dang

    • Define subvert????

    • @R M You first.
      Petty little thing.
      Just petty.

    • @Mark Harris You idiots confuse undermining with protecting. Now that’s petty.

  12. When the criminals are responsible for investigating their own crimes,…welcome to the US WH.

      yaya  Democrats are vile and evil

    • @Phil Burton You were told those lies they are not true. He cannot block anything oine it was given to the court. The court would decide. That was the Dems job. They did supeana Bolton, but then they canceled it, why? Then in this grave emergency that they claimed, they held onto to article for a month. wow what an urgency, vacation and that sports games whatever it was came first. suddenly. They just wanted to prolong this, they shamefully decided they will try to take the time away from defense. Again I say, let it go back to the house and have them do their jobs, and the right way thjis time. That my friend means due process! WHich means we get witnesess there and we question whomever we want with questions we want. They did noit allow that the ast time,. Not even lawyers for Trump was allowed. Good Luck with that! Biden happen to be corrupt, that was and is not Trup-s fault if biden got caught in the middle of it all.

    Very valid question and equally valid response. And this is definitely a test of the senators. History will remember all the senators who are under oath.

  16. The Emperor has no clothes, except in this version 35% of Americans agree he has the best clothes ever and call you a liar for pointing out he’s naked.

    • So true, P.

      The Deplorables just fall for whatever con the Criminal-in-Chief is selling. No wonder Trumpy said “I love the poorly educated.”

  17. TRUMP: “I don’t know him. Bolton just fetched coffee now & then…not a lot. He was just a GoFer.”

  18. Would the Democrats be fighting an investigation this hard if there were nothing to investgate?

  19. tRump: “I don’t know John Bolton. I’ve had lots of national security advisers, I don’t know every one of them, some of them are convicted felons now…”
