A deluge of old clips discrediting former national security adviser John Bolton are resurfacing—from Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) warning in 2005 that he lacks credibility to an August 2019 interview Bolton conducted regarding Ukraine policy, describing President Trump’s communications with President Zelensky as “cordial” and “warm” and discussing the administration’s priority of fighting “corruption” in the country, with no mention of any quid pro quo.
While the latter video prompted Trump to declare victory, there’s one more that further discredits Bolton.
During a 2010 interview with Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox Business, Bolton admitted he’d be willing to lie to protect U.S. national security.
