Fox News contributor Dan Bongino: John Bolton is just another ‘snake’ in the liberal ‘swamp’

Published

on

Fox News contributor Dan Bongino said that President Barack Obama had not done enough to clean the “swamp” in Washington, D.C. after reports said that former National Security Adviser John Bolton was aware of the president’s Ukraine scheme.

According to portions of Bolton’s new book obtained by The New York Times, Trump told him to withhold Ukraine aid to force the country to investigate Joe Biden and his son.

Bongino suggested to the hosts of Fox & Friends that Bolton, who was also a Fox News contributor at one time, could be part of a liberal conspiracy to bring down the president.

“Do you understand, The New York Times annihilated its own story,” he ranted. “They didn’t expect people would actually read because some of their liberal readers, I guess they can’t. But, yeah, it’s a dumb story.”

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade wondered if leaked excerpts of Bolton’s book makes it more likely that he will testify before the Senate impeachment trial.

“Testify to what?” Bongino exclaimed.

According to the Fox News contributor, any Republican senator who votes for witnesses is a “weak-kneed wuss.”

“Everything is a coincidence,” Bongino complained. “A whistleblower magically appears, people from the NSC are working on Adam Schiff’s staff!”

“This will be the next story, how Bolton has the keys to the kingdom,” he added.

“One think I take from this,” Kilmeade said, “is [Trump] has got to do a better job vetting his staff.”

“A lot of snakes in the swamp,” Bongino agreed.

The illness recurred “as her immune system had declined”, said Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) official Kwon Jun-wook.

Donald Trump has launched a 2020 campaign disinformation juggernaut — and it’s gaining speed

Published

You may be forgiven if you are under the impression that the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak is just one more example of his incompetence, aggressive ignorance, contempt for science and outright abuse of government. But it's worse than that. For the White House, and especially for Donald Trump's re-election campaign, it's an opportunity to put into play the massive disinformation apparatus they have built for the 2020 presidential race.

Never Trumpers fear for their safety if they dare attend CPAC: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico profiled a handful of longtime conservatives who have criticized President Donald Trump — and the general consensus was that they feared hostility at this year's annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

One such figure was former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), a Tea Party darling who has since attacked Trump for undermining the rule of law, and briefly mounted a presidential primary challenge. He attended CPAC as a guest of comedian Trevor Noah, and attendees who saw him seemed conflicted. "Torn between catching up with an old colleague and being singled out by observers as talking to a Trump foe, they split the difference — and instead kept asking him how his wife was doing," wrote Tina Nguyen.
