Could John Bolton be the key to removing Donald Trump?
Jason Easley of Politics USA wrote on a new angle that MSNBC is pushing to get President Donald Trump out of office.
Nicole Wallace of MSNBC argued that former national security adviser John Bolton has the power to compel the U.S. Senate to convict and remove Donald Trump from office.
John Heilemann broke down this scenario on MSNBC’s Deadline White House:
You have used the analogy of brick by brick, and I think the Democrats have gone about this in a very sturdy way trying to get this case across. Where I think we are right now, however, is that castle that’s being built out of those bricks is going to be large and imposing and undeniable in what it looks like to anybody with eyes in their head.
And, yet, I don’t think at this moment that that castle, that built, that edifice is going to be enough to move Republicans in an appreciable number in either the House or the Senate to act in the way the Democrats are going to want to act with respect to the disposition of president trump’s presidency, which is why I think so much now hinges in a way on John Bolton. And he is the person who can do something other than build the edifice, the person who because of his credibility, because of his place in the world, because of what he means to conservatism, because of what his place in the world and particularly the Republican world.
The more we learn about him and his role in this, where he was and what he was privy to, what he witnessed, if he came forward and told the story, it might be enough to start to shift the tectonic plates. It might. Not necessarily because we know Republicans are resistant to even powerful pieces of evidence but he’s the wildcard now, and, man, could he — turns out to be the most high-value target on the list by a long, long way.
Nicole Wallace added her two cents, “I am reluctant to say this out loud because I don’t want to put anything in the water that could disincentivize John Bolton from testifying, but I believe he is the difference between conviction and no conviction in the Senate.”
It’s anyone’s guess what Bolton is capable of doing.
Bolton was among the most hawkish individuals in the Trump administration and did everything he could to undermine his restrained foreign policy.
He’s now secured a book deal detailing his time during the Trump administration, which will likely be filled with critiques of Trump’s allegedly “isolationist” approach to foreign policy.
To add insult to injury, Bolton has been throwing Trump’s foreign policy under the bus during a talk with corporate big wigs at Morgan Stanley.
All in all, Bolton’s presence in the Trump administration will not be missed.
For the country’s sake, let’s hope Bolton stays on the sidelines during this impeachment drama.
Bronx Bobblehead AOC Believes that the Current Budget Cut to NYPD is Not Enough
On June 30, 2020, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that New York City’s budget cuts to the police department were not sufficiently adequate, declaring that “defunding police means defunding police.”
“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the congresswoman remarked in a statement.
The defund the police meme has caused some debate in Democrat circles. Some Democrats believe that the phrase shouldn’t be taken literally and is only a slogan for police reforms.
“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”
On June 30, the New York City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio came to a deal to slash $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion budget.
“We’re acting on that call for justice. I believe it is our mission to redistribute resources to those who need them the most,” de Blasio stated, “This is real redistribution.”
Activists that agree with AOC’s radical anti-cop reforms said they won’t put up with any plan that merely reallocates money and does nothing to substantially gut police departments.
“No funny math. No budget musical chairs,” radical anti-law enforcement activists said in a letter on June 30 to the mayor and council. “We’ll know if you fought for our communities or whether you will let the NYPD continue to be treated as if they’re above the law, even in the budget.”
New York City is currently suffering from a $9 billion shortfall in revenue due to the Wuhan virus shutdowns.
Defunding the police will only make New York City less secure and leave New Yorkers with virtually no options left for security.
