Seems everybody knows what’s in this book, entitled “In the room where it happened” that I could just as well read the excerpts. Fox New quotes Chris Hayes (MSNBC commentator) for criticizing John Bolton, but they carefully cherry pick Chris Hayes’ comments. Of course, all this discussion is occurring when not a single copy has been distributed to the public. What seems to really upset Chris Hayes, is a statement within the book, which blames the Democrats for failing to impeach Donald Trump, with a narrow focus on just Ukraine. Bolton had his chance to set the record straight four months ago in front of Congress and he didn’t. But, I think he and just about everyone else knew that once in the Senate, impeachment would fall short of the two-thirds majority as required to send Trump packing. So, he chose the book rather than the grilling in front of Congress. If he had chosen to testified, the Republicans would have attacked Bolton, despite his life long allegiance to the Republican party.
