The New York Times broke the bombshell excerpts of John Bolton’s upcoming book as Trump’s lawyers prepared for their first full day of his impeachment defense, an obviously incensed President Trump stayed up late to blast the defense shredding account that appears to have dug him deeper in the Ukraine ‘Aidgate’ scandal.
The leaked outline of claims by his former top security aide about the improper Ukraine scheme that got him impeached, would only worsen the picture painted for the Senate’s impeachment trial.
Trump after midnight Monday morning issued a series of increasingly shrill denials of the explosive story that Bolton’s forthcoming memoir details Trump’s admission that he held up defense aid to bully Ukraine into launching investigations into Democrats.
“I NEVER told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens,“ Trump tweeted at 12:18 am. “If John Bolton said this, it was only to sell a book.”
