John Bolton has done this before: after serving in the George W. Bush Administration, Bolton betrayed his former boss. "I don't consider Bolton credible," Bush concluded in 2008. Bolton himself once said that he would be willing to "say something [he] knew was false," and Democrats as far back as 2005 were attacking Bolton's lack of credibility.
Tonight's interview is a pathetic replay of Bolton's selfish behavior, which is why outlets from The Washington Post to The New York Times have called Bolton a "flawed narrator" who's fictional recounting is "slightly unhinged" with "significant shortcomings."
No excuse for them. They had a duty to their Country to reveal this WHILE they were working for the Idiot, and expose him as the traitor he is, then.https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/29/politics/trump-phone-calls-national-security-concerns/index.html
From pandering to Putin to abusing allies and ignoring his own advisers, Trump's phone calls alarm US officials

The calls caused former top Trump deputies -- including national security advisers H.R. McMaster and John Bolton, Defense Secretary James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and White House chief of staff John Kelly, as well as intelligence officials -- to conclude that the President was often "delusional," as two sources put it, in his dealings with foreign leaders. The sources said there was little evidence that the President became more skillful or competent in his telephone conversations with most heads of state over time. Rather, he continued to believe that he could either charm, jawbone or bully almost any foreign leader into capitulating to his will, and often pursued goals more attuned to his own agenda than what many of his senior advisers considered the national interest.
