The president has been panicking hard since revelations Sunday that John Bolton had firsthand knowledge of President Trump’s attempt to extort Ukraine into interfering int he 2020 election. Republicans are pretending they actually thought there were no witnesses to call, and Trump is freaking out on Twitter, claiming that Democrats chose not to call Bolton to testify.

Now, Trump is saying that it’s not up to the senate to call on Bolton to testify because the Democrat-controlled House had their opportunity to do so. Now, this isn’t exactly factual.

Shocking, we know..

See, Bolton was supposed to be deposed last fall, but refused to show up for the impeachment inquiry proceedings. Many believe it was pressure from Trump that made Bolton go that direction, but for whatever reason, Bolton has now agreed to testify in the impeachment trial.

Trump went ballistic on Twitter upon reading the excerpts from Bolton’s book Sunday. This is what he said:

“I NEVER told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens. In fact, he never complained about this at the time of his very public termination. If John Bolton said this, it was only to sell a book.”

“With that being said, the transcripts of my calls with President Zelensky are all the proof that is needed, in addition to the fact that President Zelensky & the Foreign Minister of Ukraine said there was no pressure and no problems. Additionally, I met with President Zelensky at the United Nations (Democrats said I never met) and released the military aid to Ukraine without any conditions or investigations – and far ahead of schedule. I also allowed Ukraine to purchase Javelin anti-tank missiles. My Administration has done far more than the previous Administration.”

Literally no one is falling for Trump’s crap, and the comment thread of his tweet speaks volumes about what people really think about the president’s lies. Check out what people are saying below:
