Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is back at it again, this time throwing darts at Trump’s latest problem, John Bolton.
After details of Bolton’s upcoming book were leaked, Giuliani called the former National Security Adviser a backstabber.
Calling Out Bolton
In the not-yet-released book, Bolton claims Trump tied the Ukraine military aid to dirt on Joe Biden.
Bolton also claimed the former mayor of New York was in the room when the request was made.
Giuliana disagreed, stating, “He went around my back to the secretary of state and complained.
“I don’t know what John’s up to. He’s either a liar or a backstabber.”
He added, “I’m very angry at John because John says I was a hand grenade.
“At no time, during the entire period this was going on did John Bolton, who I’ve known for ten years and consider a friend, did he come up to me and say Rudy I’m concerned about what you’re doing, I’m worried about what you’re doing. Never.”
Interviews during that time would tend to back up Giuliani, as Bolton stated on numerous occasions that Trump did nothing wrong and the conversations between Trump and President Zelensky were cordial and proper.
More Problems for Bolton
Now that the Senate has refused to hear witnesses and the impeachment has been defeated, so, apparently, has Bolton’s offer to spill the beans.
This is a stance that could cause him more problems with the House.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) has already stated he would like to issue and subpoena for Bolton, but House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) stated there were no plans to do so at this time.
Rep. Schiff (D-CA), however, Nadler’s partner in crime in this impeachment, also seemed a bit perturbed by Bolton’s unwillingness to speak to House members.
Schiff recently stated, “For whatever reason, he was willing to testify before the Senate but apart from that seems intent on saving it for his book.
“He’ll have to answer for that.”
From reports we have seen, Bolton’s book may never make it the store shelves, as those responsible for clearing the material reportedly took a black sharpie to a considerable amount of the information, citing it was all classified.
