Why does everyone hate America 1

The next big wave of outrage over Donald Trump is looming in Washington, this time triggered by John Bolton, his former National Security Advisor. In a disclosure book, Bolton names several reasons for new impeachment proceedings against the president. Both the New York Times as the Wall Street Journal report in advance from the book, which should not come on the market until next Tuesday. According to the book, Trump is said to have intervened several times in criminal proceedings. "The pattern looks like obstruction of justice as a typical form of behavior," said Bolton.

Bolton's book is called "The Room Where It All Happened - Memories from the White House", which is not a domestic virtuous novel, but a billing with an announcement. John Bolton, one of the princes of darkness in American foreign policy and most recently Trump's National Security Advisor between April 2018 and September 2019, had announced memoirs about time after his forced separation from the president. Bolton accompanied key foreign policy acts of the president, especially in dealings with North Korea, China, Venezuela and of course with Ukraine. The latter had led to impeachment proceedings.

Bolton's memoir has been in raw form since the beginning of the year. A not unimportant detail became the end of January New York Times leaked, which gave the impeachment proceedings against the president new impetus with the information. Even then it was clear: Bolton had to submit the work to his former employer for approval. He has to make sure that no secret information gets to the public.

Six days before the planned start of sales on June 23, the Justice Department has now filed a lawsuit with a court in Washington - mind you, not against the publisher, but against the author himself. The government's argument: Bolton's book is a long way from being approved.

Bolton himself did not respond to the complaint, but his publisher did with the notification that the edition had already been printed and had been distributed throughout the country. The message: Nobody will be able to prevent a book from falling off the pallet and falling into the wrong hands. And: the manuscript had been approved by the legal officers.

It is no coincidence that detailed passages appeared in the newspapers one day after the lawsuit. Bolton has nothing left to lose - it had to be exposed. Trump has shown his willingness to stop criminal investigations in order to "do dictators he liked" a favor. Trump also linked trade talks with his personal business interests.

He had negotiated with China's President Xi Jinping about the purchase of agricultural products - with the aim of securing his election victory in the growing countries. Bolton also appears to confirm the worst prejudices about Trump. The president asked whether Finland was part of Russia. It was also not clear to him that Great Britain was one of the nuclear powers. The US exit from NATO was more likely than was previously known, so the New York Times.

In a spicy episode for the US Secretary of State, Bolton apparently describes how Mike Pompeo slipped him a note on the sidelines of a meeting with North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un. Thereupon he made a handwritten note on Trump that the president was "so full of shit", a harsh phrase for Pompeo to think his boss is an idiot.

Of course, Donald Trump is not going to miss this skirmish. He let reporters know that he considered any conversation he had with him to be top secret. Bolton must therefore automatically have violated confidentiality rules. "He broke the law," said Trump on Wednesday evening, his favorite Fox News presenter Sean Hannity. The Wall Street Journal opposite, Trump described Bolton as a "liar" whom everyone in the White House hated.
