When news broke about the “mysterious” leak of excerpts of John Bolton’s upcoming book that claim the President told him aid was being withheld from Ukraine until they announced investigations into the 2016 election and the Bidens, our EIC believed this was less about selling books and more about getting vengeance on President Trump. That may have been the case, but now that he’s not going to testify before the Senate in the impeachment trial, his book sales become his top priority.
So how is the former National Security Adviser reacting to the news that he’s not going to testify? He changed the subject.
Brexit is done! Happy first full day of UK Independence as they reclaim their sovereignty from the EU. Brexit reflects deeply held views that the British enjoy governing themselves & are done surrendering their interests to the EU bureaucracy @BorisJohnson

Some have speculated he would be upset by not being able to testify. That’s silly. This is the best-case-scenario for him. The NY Times, followed by everyone else in mainstream media, gave him the most free publicity possible for a tell-all book. Bolton sycophants are flocking to order his book now that he won’t spill the beans in the trial. It’s a huge victory for him and his publisher.
Will he eventually respond to the impeachment trial? If he does interviews, he’ll certainly have to say something as that will be the first question he’s asked any time he’s face-to-face with a journalist. It’s wise for him to avoid the topic on smaller channels like Twitter, for now at least. Book promos are the better stage for him to tease what he might have said in testimony.
Is John Bolton vindictive? Perhaps. But whether he is or not, he’s about to cash-in on his disastrous tenure in the White House that spoiled negotiations with North Korea and nearly started a war with Iran. I, for one, won’t be reading his book.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
