Impeachable Offenses Across ‘Full Range’ of Trump’s Foreign Policy

John Bolton, the former national security adviser who left his post in 2019, claims to have documented impeachable offenses across the “full range” of President Donald Trump’sforeign policy.

According to a press release put out by publishing giant Simon & Schuster, Bolton’s soon-to-be-released book — The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir — contains a thorough accounting of Trump’s transgressions.

From the release:

What Bolton saw astonished him: a president for whom getting reelected was the only thing that mattered, even if it meant endangering or weakening the nation. “I am hard-pressed to identify any significant Trump decision during my tenure that wasn’t driven by reelection calculations,” he writes. In fact, he argues that the House committed impeachment malpractice by keeping their prosecution focused narrowly on Ukraine when Trump’s Ukraine-like transgressions existed across the full range of his foreign policy—and Bolton documents exactly what those were, and attempts by him and others in the Administration to raise alarms about them.

Since the impeachment over the Ukraine phone call was a joke, Botlton's press release to sell a book is sensationalism.  If he had actual evidence of impeachable crimes, he had the duty to report them before trying to hustle publicity for personal gain.  Hell, he could have even pretended to be a "whistleblower".  We'll see what happens when it is actually released how much he "documented".

And suddenly, in a blaze of light from on high, Bolton goes from being a pig warmonger to a holy angel delivering salvation in the eyes of the Left.

Bolton is one of those Globalists who thinks despite 20 years of abject failure in places like Afghanistan and Iraq, nation building is a good idea. Kind of like socialists thinking it'll work if we just do it right and have the right people in charge.

Sounds like you are describing a neoconservative perspective.

The reason socialism never works is because we are imperfect & fallible (sometimes lazy, greedy, dominance seeking, etc) human beings. If we were unfeeling machines, with no thought for ourselves then it could actually work. Human nature being what it is will always cause socialism to fail. You always have the support of those who have something to gain, but the real movers & shakers, the ones who actually are the driving force behind better products and methods, are the ones that are always having the rewards taken away and given to those have not actually earned them by their own efforts. You need their support, but you will not have it because they will eventually have an epiphany showing them they are foolish to continually work harder for no added reward. Eventually, they will do no more than needed to just get by, just like the rest. Without them, the system degrades, and reaches a point of failure.

The concept of successful socialism, in the sense of sharing “everything”, only works among a small group of people like a family or best friends. In which case it’s not called socialism but teamwork. 
 

As soon as total strangers from outside the group are added, but who expect to get the same benefits as the core group of “partners”, the whole idea falls apart. 
 

I can’t believe that socialist leaders don’t get that. They do. Therefore, their only game is for themselves. Dupe people into joining the large socialist group, and then force them to work hard enough so that the leaders can reap the benefits for themselves. Sort of a poor man with a gun forcing people into slavery and calls it his version of venture capitalism.

Trump put forth a policy platform during his 2016 campaign. People liked his platform and elected him President. "Driven by reelection calculations" means he is driven to deliver his policy platform to those who elected him. I don't see a problem with that. In fact, that's how the system is supposed to work.

Captain D, has it not occurred to you that publishers are willing to exaggerate to hype books they are about to publish?  

You can still find used copies of "The Beardstown Ladies Investment Club's Commonsense Guide to Investing" with their claim on the cover.  They claimed to have achieved a 23% annual return on their investment portfolio, well above that of professional Wall Street investors.  Their book became a best-seller and they went on daytime television shows to plug it.  Then, someone audited their books.  Their actual rate of return was 9%, well below that of professional investors over the same period.  

Asked how they could justify printing a book of lies, Hyperion Press replied, "We just sell books."  When Bolton's book comes out, sells to whoever believed the hype, and ultimately collapses for want of facts, there will be no use asking Simon and Schuster how they can justify their hype on behalf of their products.  They will reply, "We just sell books."
