According to The New York Times, a leaked outline of Former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s forthcoming book, may have a pivotal impact on President Trump’s impeachment trial.

The startling drama unfolded on Sunday, when the Times exclusively reported that Bolton’s manuscript includes a claim that Trump explicitly linked a hold on Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden. Trump told Bolton in August, according to a transcript of Bolton’s forthcoming book reviewed by the Times, “that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens.”

Trump immediately fired back on twitter, refuting Bolton’s claims, saying he “NEVER told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens.” Trump went on to accuse Bolton of trying to “sell a book,” noting that Bolton did not complain publicly or privately about the aid holdup “at the time of his very public termination.”

It is interesting to note that the “leak” to the Times was revealed just as the Amazon product page for the book went live.

However, the report may have serious implications on the rest of the impeachment trial. As the Trump defense team opened its case, just the day before the report, the impeachment trial seemed to be on a steady course to be wrapped up by Friday or Saturday of this week.

Prior to the release of the bombshell report, a vote to move to consider witnesses was certainly still short of GOP senators, and how quickly Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell could move to the vote to acquit Trump had become the central question on everybody’s mind in GOP circles. But, now, in the wake of the Bolton manuscript, all of that is scrambled and extremely fluid.

Could it still end up that way? Yes, definitely.

  1. It only will if these republicans do not understand Dershowitz just like Warren did not understand.

  2. Don’t be silly – President Trump has the dedication of his supporters and a nut like Bolton won’t make any difference – the Dems have been desperate to “get” our fine President since day one and it has only hurt them because now an independent – Bernie – is leading the way. Karma – all of this came out on Biden because of the Democrats and they have only themselves to blame.

  3. Such a double standard between the two parties – it’s staggering.
    How is it that the Dems get away with so much but the President is tortured every single day.
    Are people afraid that he will expose their way of doing things?

  4. what for – why leave a reply – you do’t publish!!!!!!!!!!!
    another one in the tank? hum?

  5. It doesn’t matter what is in Boltons book. Because when Shiff put his hands on it all relevance it may have had was thrown out the window. Shiff has lied every time he opened his mouth and changed or omitted from every written piece of evidence he touched. Even if Bolton discussed something with Trump his position was that of a bouncing board for Trump much like thinking out something but having a outside source for additional consideration.

  6. You damn right it causes trouble for trump. Bolton is a first hand witness that trump never wants him to testify. And the cover up republican senate will make sure it never happens

  7. The WHITE HOUSE and the PRESIDENT needs to put Johnny Go Lately Bolton needs to put him in JAIL !! And throw
    away the keys 😂😂😂😂 !! The President doesn’t need anymore distractions during this FAKE and PHONY WITCH HUNT HOAX.

  8. Bolton has been proven to be a habitual lier and also je is a disgruntled ex employee. A REAL WEIRDO.
