    Because they met his price. Do we really need to consider anything else? NO! Let’s quit acting like we don’t already know things.

  2. Speak out Mr Bolton America wants to know if their PRESIDENT is a Criminal like everyone else thinks he is!¡

    I will never buy thus cowards book. He is nothing but a greedy coward who placed profit over country.

    • @Blondie SL He could still make any public statements or testify in the house. Don’t count him out yet. If he reveals all of the daming evidence about Trump that needs to be heard, he could be your hero.

    • @Jordan Yeah, I know. It’s just the timing of it all. He’d have to speak out loudly well before Wednesday vote to have any possible impact on these,LITERALLY, do-nothing repugs.

    • @Jordan Then … why didn’t he do it when the House was giving him every chance to do it? If this were really about “doing the right thing”, he would’ve. If he has that much conscience (I doubt it), he’s kicking himself now. It was never likely he was going to be testifying in the Senate.

    • I’m still curious why he threatened to suit the House if they subpoena him and where he was when his deputies were giving their testimonies to the house. Then all of a sudden wanted to give his testimony to the senate?

    • I hope it doesn’t sell 1 copy

  4. Lev Parnas should write a book And I hope very soon!!!

    • email Simon and Schuster, tell them you won’t buy Bolton’s book, save your money for Lev’s book!!

    • Lol …..a criminal and known liar needs to write a book ? 🤪🤪🤪🤪

    • @Kevin McNeil Yea sounds sad but he is more trustworthy and honest than our Republican Senators! He saved all the receipts, tweets and calls also has dirt on several House and Senate Republicans including Gram and Nunes!

    • he’s a criminal & a thug & i hope he goes to prison for life, but i would read his story concerning this. & it would be written for posterity. trump would probably get it banned along with all the other tell all books about him, but it would be hard for him to burn every copy of every book. if that sounds outlandish & preposterous, so is what is happening right now. i don’t doubt any possibility with him & putin in power.

  5. Bolton. Just another republican who would rather make a dollar than do what is right for this country.
    Typical. 👎

    We never heard from him because he chose money and book sales over doing what’s right. He had the same and information during the House of Representatives’ Intellegence Committe hearings when he was asked to testify and he threatened to join Don McGahn’s lawsuit so he could delay having to testify until what he hoped would be after the release date for his book. When the Court ruled on McGahn’s lawsuit he realized he would have no legal cover to refuse a subpoena so he says he’ll testify if subpoenaed by the Senate, knowing Senate Republicans would never vote to allow his testimony therefore ensuring that no one would know the contents of his book until its release date. He’s just as bad as Trump in my opinion. My only hope is that no one buys his book, but I know that’s a pipe dream considering all the hype behind the information we’ve heard to be contained in his book. It’s a shame that he has had the very information Republicans have said they needed to hear all this time and he held it just to make money. Shame!

    He wanted the book to sell!!! Greedy A-word!

  8. Hello.

    Bolton is waiting to maximize his stature and oppurthnitys as his career is now over. I mean honestly… do yoj wish to hire him as a pundint? On your show?

    Good luck.

    Bolton should have done his patriotic duty to testify in the House of Reps.

    • elaine, email Simon ans Schuster, tell them you won’t buy his book, some patriot, money over country!

    • Indeed. He’s Part of the criminal enterprise by NOT doing his duty as a citizen months ago.

    • Bolton has always been a lying war criminal. I can’t believe the media is praising that snake as a hero just because he said some mean things about Trump.

  10. Greed.
    Just plain greed.
    Plain and Simple.

    He didn’t testify because he wanted to make money on it first. This government is corrupt so very badly. Maybe it’s a reflection of who ” We the people” are now , and that’s why he’s there , and you can’t get him out. 1 murder is committed every 24 minutes in the U.S.A. now. How did this happen ???? Answer : poverty of the soul.

    • I don’t blame the people who work in government to serve and protect this country, They are certainly not all corrupt and are attacked by conservatives incessantly. I think I understand your frustration and point though.
      ‘The’ government’ isn’t corrupt, as we watched government employees come forward in the House impeachment.
      The Republican Party, under Trump, is the corruption. Worse as their power is threatened by changing demographics, economic forces, climate and ideology. But “the government” is not widely corrupt.
      Rather, blame the millions of know-nothing Trumpites for believing conspiracy theories and voting for conservative to make themselves feel better. They, in their victim-hood, watch right wing TV and believe the racist, sexist, radical fundamentalist propaganda it propagates. It makes them fear everyone and everything and pine for a savior like Trump so they don’t have to think and take responsibility. They even pull children from their safety seeking mothers and fathers in the name of religion – while gleefully awaiting their Apocalypse.

    • @Vivian Benge exactly

  12. Bolton is just looking at the bigger picture , he’s an American after all

  13. I hope everybody will do what I did, email Simon and Schuster to tell them, you will not buy Bolton’s book, money over patriotism!!

  14. Republicans senators have turned America into Congo, Somalia,Russia,Venezuela, Irak and turkey clowns…senate

  15. Patriots came forward under oath in the house investigation. Cowards kept their mouths shut for fear of condemnation by their party. True American patriots should boycott Bolton’s book.

  16. ….. because he wants to sell more books.

    its a sad day when a journalist is saying we may never see a book.& where book publishers know more about the duplicity of the president than members of the senate [& republicans vote to keep it that way?] …it just shows how far democracy has fallen under this president 🙁

  18. Bolton has until Tuesday to prove that he is a decent human being. Tick – tock.

    • Nope. That ship has sailed. Anything he’d do in between now and then will be designed to make more money off the book.

    Greed must be an organ inside every politician’s brain yet to be discovered by Science. Hope a cure is readily available.😒

  20. The book should now be boycotted by everyone. BOYCOTT THE BOOK BECAUSE THE CONTENTS WILL COME OUT IN THE NEWS.
