Taylor starts preparing to resign. Aug. 27, Bolton arrives in Kiev, meets with Zelensky. "During their meeting, security assistance was not discussed--amazingly, news of the hold did not leak out until Aug. 29." Bolton recommended Taylor send a first person cable to Pompeo

Taylor’s testimony calls into question claims made last week by Ambassador Gordon Sondland and also pulled in Bill Barr, Bolton'>John Bolton and senior NSC and OMB officials.

CICILLINE called Taylor a key witness who should be asked to give public testimony. He also said testimony underscores the importance of JohnBolton’s role, and it raises question about why Bolton left the administration when he did.

TFW these guys are such degenerate sleazeballs they’re making Bolton'>John Bolton seem righteous.

"Mr. Morrison said that he told Amb. Bolton and the NSC lawyers of this [Sept. 7] phone call between Pres. Trump and Amb. Sondland." On Sept. 8, Taylor talks with Sondland, who says Trump insists Zelensky himself had to clear things up and do it in public.

Bolton'>Suspect John Bolton will be called to give evidence to the impeachment inquiry. Two officials (Hill+Taylor) now naming him as waving the red flag as Ukraine saga unfolded. And he’s now on the outside.

So to boil it down... America’s top Ukraine official is now claiming a) Trump held back aid to get Biden probe b) That risked Ukrainian lives c) CIA/State/Defence heads + Bolton opposed d) US foreign policy was ‘undercut’ Not good for Trump.

Bolton called Mulvaney's effort to tie Ukraine military assistance to help on political investigations a "drug deal," according to Bill Taylor:

We have also confirmed Hill described Bolton as being outraged over Giuliani’s activities. Giuliani, Bolton said, was a “hand grenade” that’s going to “blow everybody up,” CNN has also confirmed.

I informed Bolton'>John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore....

From the beginning, I felt Bolton'>John Bolton lacked the judgment and temperament to be National Security Advisor. Nothing he did in the job persuaded me otherwise. The only question about his replacement is the same after all Trump resignations: Will we go from bad to worse?

In fact, my views on Venezuela, and especially Cuba, were far stronger than those of Bolton'>John Bolton. He was holding me back!

So much Fake News about what is going on in the White House. Very calm and calculated with a big focus on open and fair trade with China, the coming North Korea meeting and, of course, the vicious gas attack in Syria. Feels great to have Bolton & Larry K on board. I (we) are

Here Bolton says Iran is seeking nuclear weapons. This simply isn’t true. The intelligence says the opposite and he knows it. He is laying the groundwork for war and we all must be vigilant.

It’s hard to escape the disquieting conclusion that the mass exodus of the “adults” from this Administration is putting our nation’s security at risk. Ambassador Bolton’s hawkish and conspiratorial thinking will only make matters dangerously worse.
