CNN’s John Berman on Friday grew visibly angry after seeing that former Trump national security adviser John Bolton posted a cryptic tweet on his account telling his followers to “stay tuned” for more information.
On Friday morning, Bolton posted on Twitter for the first time since September and wrote, “Glad to be back on Twitter after more than two months. For the backstory, stay tuned.”
Glad to be back on Twitter after more than two months. For the backstory, stay tuned……..

Bolton, who has cut a deal to write a book about his time in the Trump White House, has so far avoided testifying publicly in the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry, even though several other witnesses have pointed to him as a key figure in the events surrounding President Donald Trump’s efforts to get Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
Reacting to Bolton’s tweet, Berman sounded exasperated and chided the former Trump official for not being completely forthcoming about what he knows.
“Can i just say, John Bolton, stop screwing around!” he said. “At this point, if you want to sell your books, go sell your books. If you want to talk to Congress, talk to Congress, but this isn’t a game.”

‘Why not cooperate?’ CNN’s Wolf Blitzer hammers Pence’s chief of staff over impeachment stonewalling
On Thursday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," anchor Wolf Blitzer challenged Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff Marc Short to justify the administration's stonewalling of the impeachment inquiry.
"Wolf, the reality is that the last three years, they've been trying to overturn the will of the American people. They're trying to take away the votes of the American people," said Short. "This whole impeachment has been a sham. What they've tried to prove there is no proof of ... I think it sets a dangerous precedent."
"Here's what I don't understand," said Blitzer. "If the president has nothing to hide, it was a perfect phone call with the president of Ukraine, why not cooperate, provide the documents, why not let individuals go before the committees and testify?"
‘Help me’: CNN’s John King begs guests to say something after bonkers Giuliani interview leaves him speechless
CNN host John King on Thursday found himself at a loss for words while watching the latest escapade of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, who is in Ukraine this week to apparently resume his quest to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
During a segment about Giuliani's latest Ukraine caper, King played an interview clip with former Fox News host Eric Bolling in which Giuliani refused to say what he was doing in the country.
"I'm not here -- I don't have to defend myself!" Giuliani said, when asked about his reasons for traveling to Kiev. "I didn't do anything wrong. I didn't do a darn thing wrong!"
‘Trump is the kid no one wants to invite to their birthday’: Biographer Michael D’Antonio calls president a ‘pariah’
President Donald Trump is obsessed with being laughed at. He mentioned it more than 50 times during the 2016 campaign trail, saying that the world was "laughing" at the United States or claiming that people wouldn't laugh at the U.S. when he is president. It became clear this week that it was another "promise made" and broken by Trump as world leaders were caught laughing at Trump for humiliating the United States. The president was so miffed that he ditched his final events and left the NATO summit early.
It has already become a campaign issue as former Vice President Joe Biden, who released a campaign ad just 30 minutes after Trump landed back on American soil.
