Schiff Trolls Trump Hard Over John Bolton Book Revelation

President Donald Trump is facing the imminent release of a memoir from his former national security adviser, John Bolton, whose book reveals a staggering array of presidential misconduct. For example, according to information from the book that surfaced online this week, Trump tried to get Chinese President Xi Jinping to help his re-election effort. Bolton’s experiences with Trump have previously been sought out — House investigators wanted him to testify during their impeachment proceedings, but he did not. On Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) criticized Bolton for keeping his experiences with Trump for his book deal, implying that there’s still a sharp Congressional interest in exposing the president’s corruption.

Schiff posted:

‘Bolton’s staff were asked to testify before the House to Trump’s abuses, and did. They had a lot to lose and showed real courage. When Bolton was asked, he refused, and said he’d sue if subpoenaed. Instead, he saved it for a book. Bolton may be an author, but he’s no patriot.’

By the time the impeachment proceedings got to the Senate, Bolton said that he’d testify if the members of that chamber issued a subpoena for him — but they never did so. In fact, the vast majority of Republican Senators voted against hearing from any additional witnesses at all, thereby ensuring that the president could receive an especially speedy acquittal. Only one Republican Senator — Mitt Romney — voted to convict Trump of either of the charges against him.

Now that some of Bolton’s experiences with Trump have made it out, it seems like Congressional Democrats concerned about the president’s corruption have a lot of areas to now dig into. For example, besides the revelation that Trump tried to get Chinese authorities to help his re-election effort, Bolton also reveals that Trump apparently promised the dictatorial Turkish president that he’d try and sway a federal investigation into a Turkish bank in the Turkish leadership’s favor. Trump also apparently privately supported the construction of concentration camps for Chinese Muslims.
