  1. It is a scary time when John Bolton is the voice of reason.

  2. Does this make Bolton “the deep state” now? Does that mean Trump himself is the one hiring the deep state? So many questions

  3. Even Bolton realized that Trump’s criminal acts had no boundaries. FFS, Trump committed this latest crime involving Ukraine just 1 day after Mueller testified. It’s as if after Mueller testified, Trump was like, “they aren’t going to impeach me over the 10 times I obstructed justice in the Mueller report so I am free to commit new crimes starting today.”

  4. > Bolton described Giuliani as a “Hand grenade” that would “Blow everybody up.”

    A very, very slow hand grenade…

  5. When John ‘warmongering psychopath’ Bolton is the moral compass of the administration, you know how utterly corrupt, immoral and despicable Trumps people are

  6. Giuliani is such a moron. He had a decent career as a prosecutor and mayor, and he probably had enough money to retire out of the spotlight and live comfortably. Instead, he chose to pursue insane conspiracy theories and commit moronic crimes to benefit himself and his associates.

    I have no sympathy for the man. I hope he ends up in jail– he’d only have himself to blame.

  7. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.businessinsider.my/john-bolton-fiona-hill-white-house-lawyers-giuliani-ukraine-2019-10/) reduced by 77%. (I’m a bot)

    > Source Denis Balibouse/Reuters Former national security adviser John Bolton was so alarmed by Rudy Giuliani's pressure campaign on Ukraine for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden that he directed a top aide to tell White House lawyers he wasn't involved, The New York Times reported.

    > The Times also reported that Bolton described Giuliani as a "Hand grenade" that would "Blow everybody up.”

    > The former aide who previously served as a senior director for Russian and Eurasian affairs, Fiona Hill, testified to House Democrats on Monday that Bolton instructed her to tell the National Security Council's chief lawyer that Giuliani and acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney were carrying out an operation with serious legal implications, The Times reported.

  8. When John Bolton is the sane voice of reason, you know things have truly gone off the rails.

  9. Rudy made Bolton run for cover? Fuck Rudy…. you’re criming like a boss.

  10. Finally, a plausible reason for Bolton’s departure.

  11. This is John Bolton, who had no qualms at all about lying about WMDs to send thousands of Americans to die for that lie. A man who had no reservations about what we did to the nation of Iraq and its people.

    ​

    This was so vile even a scumbag like Bolton didn’t want to be part of it.

  12. wow when even Bolton says “i ain’t touching this”

  13. Bolton is still a mass murderer, hes just the kind of mass murderer that stays out of prison

  14. Bolton saw something illegal happening, but he didn’t try to stop it, he didn’t try to report it. All he did was try to cover his own ass.

  15. I can’t believe I live in a time where I’m on the same side as GW Bush, Mccain and now fucking Bolton. If I end up sucking up to Dick Cheney by the end of the year, just end me.

  16. I wonder if this is what precipitated Trump deciding to dump Bolton.

  17. Bolton is a dickless chickenhawk, but I have to give him this: even he seems to have more integrity than the mango mafia currently occupying the White House.

  18. John Bolton has committed war crimes and does not deserve the redemption arc he’s getting.

  19. The fact that this is actual testimony from the aid and not information from an “anonymous source inside the White House” makes it much more damning. That part should be made a bigger deal

  20. Ahh good to see Mulvaney implicated too.

  21. A world where John Bolton is the grown up in the room is a fucked up world indeed.

  22. Just a friendly reminder that John Bolton is still a piece of shit. Just because he’s slowly turning on Trump doesn’t redeem him for all the horrible shit he supports, the least of which is starting war with Iran.

  23. And yet he did nothing about it, even though he knew. Sorry Bolton, you aren’t clean of this.

  24. Thats called integrity.

    I want Bolton in a jail cell as much as anybody.

    But, I respect his stupid mustache for this.

  25. When you’re too corrupt for John Bolton, you know you’re a monster.

  26. Imagine being too dirty for Bolton holy crap

  27. Trump and all his supporters are traitors to this country. It’s right in front of our eyes. Shame on every last American that still backs this blatant traitor.

  28. When Bolton is the voice of reason we’re at Defcon 2

  29. Trump will be the first US president to be impeached for criminal stupidity.

  30. How bad does it have to be for Bolton to be the sober voice in the room

  31. Trump has made Bolton the sane guy in the room, this should speak volumes on how nuts Trump is.

  32. It something when fucking Bolton is alarmed by your behavior.

    When the whistleblower stuff first broke last month, I was convinved it was Bolton.

  33. A measure of how sorry is the state of affairs where Bolton seems like the rational adult with ethics.
