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.”

Will the GOP ‘stand for gaslighting or reality?’: George Conway thumps senate Republicans who refuse to consider Trump’s crimes
Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," conservative attorney George Conway launched a broadside against Republican senators for their conduct in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump, saying they are selling lies to the public.
Speaking with host Jake Tapper, Conway -- the husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway -- painted a withering portrait of the GOP that is hellbent on acquitting the president of obvious impeachable crimes.
"I'm deeply saddened," Conway began. "It is very upsetting and this is a moment of reckoning not just for the country and the rule of law and the constitution, but it is a specific day of reckoning for the Republican senators who took this oath, and the republican party generally, are they going to stand for lies instead of truth?"
Mitch McConnell is manipulating Trump to keep him from prolonging impeachment trial: NYT’s Haberman
Appearing on CNN on Sunday morning, the New York Times' Maggie Haberman said Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is stringing an anxious Donald Trump along and manipulating him to go along with his plan to wrap up the Senate impeachment trial.
Speaking with host John King, Haberman claimed that McConnell is speaking to Trump in such a way that the president may think that McConnell's ideas are his own.
"Do you think the president will -- e could do this over two more days but does he give up a day of TV time?" King asked about the impeachment trial
"McConnell has convinced him, it's taking him some time, back and forth," B Haberman explained. "The president had to be allowed to believe it's his idea or that he wasn't being led along but he's generally done what McConnell wanted. He [McConnell] wants this over quick."
Scrambling Trump promises to ‘save’ social security after threatening to cut it — but it’s seniors who will pay for his recklessness
It used to be said that cutting Social Security was politics’ third rail, a fatal taking of positions.
If that’s still true, you wouldn’t know it from the emerging attention that cutting Social Security is getting.
Indeed, look at Trump’s handling of Social Security, and you may find real flaws in the armor of a Best-of-All-Time economy cloak that Trump tries to wear.
Even as Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden mix it up over whether Biden did or did not say something supportive about a Republican plan in 2008 by then-Rep. Paul D. Ryan for spending reductions, here comes Donald Trump to promise that he is open to revamping entitlement programs towards the end of the year.
