John Bolton entered the impeachment fray with a high profile, high minded move through his lawyer indicating his desire to testify against President Donald J. Trump about his time as the former National Security Advisor.
In a clear attempt to disobey Trump’s presidential authority and in an obvious scheme to bypass Trump’s directive to his administration to not participate with the sham impeachment hoax, Bolton has signaled through a letter from his lawyer he wants to be dragged to court “kicking and screaming”.
NBC News reported, “Bolton’s attorney, Charles Cooper, made the disclosure to the House’s general counsel in an effort to explain why his client needs a court order to be able to testify in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.”
According to the letter, Cooper said that his client “was personally involved in many of the events, meetings, and conversations about which you have already received testimony, as well as many relevant meetings and conversations that have not yet been discussed in the testimonies thus far.”
Cooper said in the letter that Bolton is seeking “definitive judgment from the Judicial Branch determining their Constitutional duty in the face of conflicting demands.”
Bolton, who was fired by Trump in September, appears to want to join the Democrats and Establishment Republicans in choosing the winners and losers in politics, over the clear choice of elections involving the American voter.
Many observers are beginning to view the impeachment as a hoax driven by policy differences over foreign policy, with leading Trump opponents refusing to acknowledge his presidential authority to set foreign policy agenda.
Bolton is merely the latest in a series of Trump administration officials who, as a result of apparent fits of personal motivation, appears poised to betray the office of President, undermining the voice of the American people by choosing to aid in Pelosi’s impeachment effort.
Bolton, known as a “war hawk” who favors big wars, was a surprising addition to Trump’s administration at a time when Trump was talking about keeping his campaign promise to end long and needless wars.
The former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Bolton, was a vocal and fierce supporter of former Senator John McCain, who was himself a fierce Never Trumper up until the day he died.
Bolton was fired for clashing with Trump, who favored more diplomacy and less war. If he moves forward to assist Pelosi’s effort to unseat the President — widely regarded as a coup attempt — he will prove to many observers his disrespect for Trump’s authority on foreign policy.
