On MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Columbia University lecturer and political commentator Karine Jean-Pierre suggested that if President Donald Trump goes down in the Ukraine scandal, he will see to it that no one in his immediate inner circle of loyalists escapes unscathed.

President Donald Trump is now trying to discredit his former National Security Advisor, Ambassador John Bolton, who has information on Trump so damning it could be the end of his presidency.
In a Twitter tantrum Trump attacked Bolton Wednesday morning, curiously not by name – presumably after reports said he had waived executive privilege previously by attacking Bolton.
For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, “begged” me for a non Senate approved job, which I gave him despite many saying “Don’t do it, sir,” takes the job, mistakenly says “Libyan Model” on T.V., and..
