“Fox & Friends” hosts warned that leaks of John Bolton’s book could blow up President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade told viewers that excerpts from the former national security adviser’s book could force Republicans to hear additional witness testimony, and he fears the Trump administration was at war with itself.
“If John Bolton’s lawyers are telling the truth here, and they just submitted (the transcript) in and it’s leaked out,” Kilmeade said, “if that is indeed the case, more evidence that people within the administration are against the administration.”
Bolton revealed in the forthcoming book that Trump told his former national security adviser that Ukraine aid was tied to an investigation of Joe Biden and his son, and Kilmeade admitted that could complicate the Senate trial.
“Devastating timing,” he said, “because this thing was on the fast track to closing out without witnesses on Friday. Only Mitt Romney pretty much saying ‘I want to see witnesses,’ everyone else saying ‘I’ve heard enough,’ and now this giving fuel to the Sen. (Chuck) Schumers of the world, the Adam Schiffs of the world saying ‘I want a witness,’ and he wants to testify.”

Conservative columnist nails the infectious diseases the Trump White House is suffering from
On Wednesday, conservative columnist Max Boot revealed the "diseases" at the heart of President Donald Trump's administration that are weakening their capacity to respond to the very real disease threat from coronavirus.
Simply put: Fevered nationalism, hatred of the civil service, and a pathological desire to erase the legacy of President Barack Obama.
"Covid-19 has already infected more than 80,000 people in 37 countries, causing more than 2,600 deaths, and experts doubt it will slow in the spring," wrote Boot. "That a virus that started in China could have a bad impact on the United States should be no surprise: Diseases don’t respect borders any more than terrorists or trade flows do. Transnational threats require transnational solutions. To cite but one example, many of the medicines and medical supplies that Americans need, including N95 face masks, come from China."
Trump’s health secretary learned Pence was taking over coronavirus outbreak moments before press conference
President Donald Trump apparently left Secretary Alex Azar out of the loop on Vice President Mike Pence taking over the coronavirus response.
According to the Washington Post, Azar was "blindsided" by the decision, according to five people familiar with the incident. Azar learned about it moments before the press conference this afternoon.
Pence said that he would run a task force at the Department of Health and Human Services, which Azar is in charge of.
US has first case of community-spread coronavirus transmission — as Trump says spread is under control
President Donald Trump did a Wednesday press conference where he said that the coronavirus was under control and only a little over one dozen people had it and it would be down to five people soon. In fact, the U.S. hit its 60th person. One dramatic shift happened in the virus, however.
According to KCRA, the first community-spread infection has occurred in California.
A Solano County patient “had no known exposure to the virus through travel or close contact with a known infected individual,” said the California Department of Public Health.
