Senator John Barrasso called the situation with John Bolton similar to what we saw with Kavanaugh.
.@SenJohnBarrasso: New information like the NYT report on Bolton is “very similar to what we saw in the Kavanaugh trial. New information, old information told in a different way to inflame emotions and influence outcome.” pic.twitter.com/xmFbjAZ0h7

John R. Bolton, the former national security adviser, privately told Attorney General William P. Barr last year that he had concerns that President Trump was effectively granting personal favors to the autocratic leaders of Turkey and China, according to an unpublished manuscript by Mr. Bolton.
Mr. Barr responded by pointing to a pair of Justice Department investigations of companies in those countries and said he was worried that Mr. Trump had created the appearance that he had undue influence over what would typically be independent inquiries, according to the manuscript. Backing up his point, Mr. Barr mentioned conversations Mr. Trump had with the leaders, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and President Xi Jinping of China.
Mr. Bolton’s account underscores the fact that the unease about Mr. Trump’s seeming embrace of authoritarian leaders, long expressed by experts and his opponents, also existed among some of the senior cabinet officers entrusted by the president to carry out his foreign policy and national security agendas.
The book also contains an account of Mr. Trump telling Mr. Bolton in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations of political rivals, The New York Times reported on Sunday. The matter is at the heart of the articles of impeachment against the president.
Understand that the left isn’t going to let impeachment just fail. Just like with Kavanaugh they need to continue this fake narrative. They will leak to the press and attempt to gain a case for there failing impeachment sham. We know the playbook so we should have no issue beating it.
