This really is a no brainer. Despite a lot of fury in John Bolton’s direction, it seems pretty obvious the leaking did not come from him and may not be accurately characterizing his work.
Well, has anyone seen Bolton’s precise words? Anyone seen an actual excerpt?
If it came from the publisher or Bolton, we’d have something more than a summary or synopsis of his claims. We may not have the actual excerpts, but we’d come closer to them than the drip, drip, drip we are getting.
The dripping is actually pretty consistent with the Democrats’ coordinated media campaign against the President as they try to make the case for witnesses. It is very good, but the steady build up also seems highly manufactured. First we have Parnas and now this after a few weeks of holding the articles of impeachment and screaming about witnesses.
The Democrats clearly had people on the inside. They coordinated with the whistleblower before the whistleblowing complaint was filed. They probably have others on the inside who have helped them. This strikes me as someone inside the national security complex trying to further undermine the President.
