John Bolton is back in the political game already, just 3 days after President Trump fired the warmongering Swamp dweller!
It probably won’t be a shock to hear that Bolton has taken up his old positions as head of two PACS: the John Bolton PAC and the John Bolton Super PAC.
And, he’s already busy!
Bolton has announced that his first action will be to donate $10K to five Republican congressmen – all former recipients of Bolton’s PAC money who all share Bolton’s stance on national security that President Trump opposes (Bolton’s way at taking yet another hit at Trump?)
Take a look at the news of Bolton’s re-entry to the Swamp that hit Twitter:
USA Today via Yahoo News has more to say about John Bolton's jump back in to the political arena following his disgraceful exit from the White House:
John Bolton wasted no time getting back in the political game Friday, just a few days after being ousted as President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser.
Bolton has resumed his old job as the head of two political action committees, the John Bolton PAC and John Bolton Super PAC, announcing that he would be donating $10,000 to five Republican incumbent re-election campaigns for 2020.
These include Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) and Reps. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) and Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.).
The website reads, "The John Bolton PAC and John Bolton Super PAC seek a strong, clear, and dependable US national security policy, resting on constancy and resolve.”
Vanity Fair gave some more in-depth, additional information to Bolton's apparent jab at President Trump:
When he left the White House earlier this week, John Bolton did not thank the president for the high privilege of serving the country, as other ejectees had before him. Instead, after Donald Trump tweeted that he had fired the national security adviser on Monday night, Bolton contradicted the president, saying that he’d offered to quit first. And after Trump went on a prolonged rant about how he, the president, was stronger than “Mr. Tough Guy,” Bolton announced that he was getting back into the political arena, rebooting his PAC and Super PAC and throwing money at candidates who disagreed with a certain someone’s national security policies.
“The John Bolton PAC and John Bolton Super PAC seek a strong, clear, and dependable U.S. national security policy, resting on constancy and resolve,” Bolton said in a press release issued Friday. “The experience that these incumbent members of Congress have provides them with a remarkable understanding and knowledge of the threats we face from international terrorism and rogue regimes such as Iran and North Korea.”
The statement can be read as a not-so-subtle jab at the president, whose positions swing from promising to rain “fire and fury” upon Kim Jong Un, to practically hugging the “very honorable” dictator at a joint press conference months later. Since Bolton’s appointment in 2018, the two have butted heads over their approach to national security, with Trump blaming Bolton for the breakdown of nuclear talks with North Korea, and Bolton in turn defying the president to call out North Korea for unauthorized missile tests.
