  1. So we now know from Bolton’s book that Trump actually thought that Finland was part of Russia.😂  I guess that explains his betrayal of America in Helsinki Finland. He actually thought he was safe on Russian soil.

  2. I can’t believe America let Trump just destroy The United States. One man is doing so much damage.

    • C Butler, The unchecked COVID could lead to more deaths, a 2nd shutdown and deepening economic crisis this fall. Wait, we could still go to war with Iran

    • @joe blowHow can they be “lies” AND “classified”. If they were lies then they are made up. If they are made up then the events didn’t happen. If the events didn’t happen, how can they be classified.? How can something that never happened be classified? I’m from the UK and I can see it – why can’t you Trump supporters? Or will you just believe what you are told.

      He has the help of the entire GOP and a whole lot of bad actors supporting him.

    Bolton’s knowledge of Trump’s impeachable offences combined with Bolton’s refusal to testify, a violation of his own sworn oath of office makes Bolton a criminal and no better than Trump. Bolton is just another scurrilous National Enquirer type writer, one more greedy rich man.

    • soaringvulture | June 18, 2020 at 4:25 PM | Reply

      Well, he wasn’t in the government when asked to testify so perhaps it’s not a violation of his oath of office. It’s just corrupt greed. Nothing special from a Trump associate.

      Unfortunately it is very possible that even if Boltons revelations had come up during the impeachment hearings.

    The blood all of the American people isn’t just on trumps hands but upon Bolton hands also

      A life in a well-ordered community allows man to develop and apply the rational and character-building abilities that are inherent in him. Man is not only a herd animal that lives in a structurally differentiated organization, like bees and ants, but he differs from them by the possession of the language on the basis of which he is able to communicate about good and bad, about useful and harmful, about right and wrong. – (Aristotele)

    • Leave Bolton out of it. This is all on Trump’s and the Senate that backed his play. And one thing is, now how could you trust Trump?

    • Right!!

    • Brian Greenberg | June 18, 2020 at 9:25 PM | Reply

      @a. barker Lawrence said it best about both men.

    • And the Republican party as a whole,the senate specifically ,and every single person who voted for Trump in 2016 and still campaigning for him now.

    This is why Lawrence O’Donnell is my favorite in news. He comes out guns blazing and tells you how it is. He doesn’t sugar coat nothing. ✊🏽👏🏽

  7. brilliantly said, ty mr o’donnell. he is a traitor to our country. first, he chose trumputin over America, then he chose a book deal over America!

  8. The Republican Party and all neo-cons stand for two things only: greed and corruption. No one should buy Bolton’s book – we should all just share the info leaked from others who have free copies.

    Bolton is a traitor to the USA, for keeping this information secret during an investigation. He should be gravely punished for this treason.

    • @joe blow Why are both Democrats and Republicans tearing each other down and pointing fingers?

      joe blow ur dumb

    • Better to vote Trump out decisively than to impeach him. Having this come out now is damaging enough in the election season.

    • Roger Dodger | June 18, 2020 at 8:04 AM | Reply

      Bolton probably new that if he testafied, it wouldn’t make a difference as the Senate was republican controlled. So he saved his evertyhing for a book that would make him some money!

    • Maree Graziano | June 18, 2020 at 11:08 AM | Reply

      Bolton had the opportunity to right the wrongs of the Republican Sycophants by testifying during Trumps impeachment trial.. Don’t buy his book, he is a traitor

  9. Exactly, one is a mad bulldog and the other a rat.

  10. Every senate Republican should be charged with obstruction of justice and impeding an investigation by not allowing witnesses to testify!

    • Some of the blame must be placed on Chief Justice Roberts. What on earth was the point of him “presiding”, as the top lawyer in the land, if he was not going to say anything to stop the GOP making a mockery of how trials work, by not allowing evidence or witnesses. I know any ruling he made on that score could and would have been outvoted by Repub senators, but it wd at least have shown that he was aware that this suppression was wrong. Instead, he just came over as a partisan weakling, imo.

    • when – who will do it

    • Peter Popovich – no, they aren’t. But they are not anywhere near this level of corruption, stupidity, and anti constitutional self promoting treasonous behavior of Donald trump. You should really be ashamed for supporting him and not paying attention to what he does.

    • Rafael Salas | June 18, 2020 at 5:45 PM | Reply

      @M Loftus very well said. 😁🇺🇸

  11. Boycott Bolton’s book…don’t buy it. The Media will inform us what’s relevant.

    • stranger akerman | June 18, 2020 at 2:36 AM | Reply

      Not a good Idea….most of the “Irrelevant” stories are hilarious…what a dumb president…yes I feel bad that Bolton will be cashing in from it…but let him I mean you nothing to lose but a whole lot to laugh at from those stories…so please buy it..(he’s my father lol)

    • I want to read it.
      I don’t want to give Bolton my money.

      Answer: Public library.

    • Nobody needs to read the book…… stuff is out already!

    • Too Little Too Late

  13. We could have used that information SIX MONTHS AGO you creepy low-rent Lorax wannabe.

  14. And he was just getting started. Tomorrow he’ll remind us that Don asked China to help him with the 2020 election, in his inimitable style; with extortion and bribery. He’ll tell us Bolton assesses Don’s decisions based on only one thing. If it will help him. And offering to help personal “dictators the Chinese liked” , looking like obstruction. “The pattern looked like a way of life.” “I am hard pressed to find any significant Trump decision during my White House tenure that wasn’t driven by reelection calculations.”

    If Bolton thought the rest of us would see him as John Wayne riding in at the last moment to save the town, he was wrong.
    Bolton and every other former administration official who refused to testify is just as scurrilous as Bunker Baby.
    We would not be in this mess if anyone in the Republican leadership had the backbone of a slug or the balls of a Mayfly.

    • Let’s not forget Don McGahn, former WH counsel, who knew all the secrets, and was the first to refuse to testify, after being subpoenaed. I’m pretty sure his defiance emboldened a lot of the other rats, who then followed his lead. So much for their loyalty to their country.

    • The United States is now a.third world country being run by a wanna be dictator and our democracy is slowly being destroyed by the republicunt”swith the support of mother russia

    Bolton has betrayed America and her citizens.
    AND like I said last year, I’m never buying his book. It’s blood money. If we’d been able to get rid of both Pence and Trump by December, Pelosi would have been president. While I don’t love her, she would have handles this pandemic differently, and many more of our friends and family members would be alive today.

    • I’d use the public library or buy it second hand to make sure the money doesn’t reach him or his publishers. Yes I know libraries pay for books right, but at least it’s not directly out of my pocket and the amount is minimal from the individual.

    • pubkrocknroll | June 18, 2020 at 2:31 PM | Reply

      Yeah your delusional

  17. Someone needs to copy his book and put it out on social media so no one has to buy it. Bolton should never make a dime for something he should have told the people during the impeachment hearings. Maybe the MSM can release it and keep the money out of the pockets of the traitor.

    Lawrence 100% Yes! All who worked close to Trump know he’s a danger to the USA, but they only speak up about it months later, if at all. ALL ARE TRAITORS!

  19. George Masters | June 18, 2020 at 2:55 AM | Reply

    Yosemite Sam could have been a hero. Instead he is a traitor. He could have testified w/o a subpoena. I hope his book fails miserably. I already have a VERY clear picture of who trump is. .

    Bin Laden would be jealous of the damage to the US that Trump has done
