In 2010, John Bolton told Fox Business Channel host Andrew Napolitano that he would “absolutely” lie to protect U.S. national security when interviewed regarding about documents released at the time by Wikileaks.

Napolitano asked, “You would lie in order to preserve the truth?”

Bolton replied, “If I had to say something that I knew was false to protect American national security, I would do it. I don’t think we’re often faced with that difficulty, but would I lie about where the D-Day invasion was gonna take place to deceive the Germans? You better believe it.”

Napolitano then asked, “Why do people in the government think that the rules of society to the laws don’t apply to them?

“Because they are not dealing in the civil society we live in under the Constitution,” answered Bolton. “They are dealing in an anarchic environment internationally where different rules apply.”

“There are convenient misstatements that people can make,” he added. “And it may not be the most appealing thing to say, but honestly, in that case, that’s a good example of something that benefitted the United States.”

When asked if Bolton himself had lied during his diplomatic career, he replied, “I don’t think so, knowingly. But, I certainly am able to spin things. And a good diplomat is able to spin things just like American politicians.”

Bolton, who recently left the White House where he served as President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser, is set to release a tell-all memoir of his time at the White House.

In excerpts recently released to The New York Times, Bolton alleges that Trump gave “personal favors to dictators he liked.” For example, Bolton claims that President Trump gave China’s Communist President Xi Jinping the go-ahead to house Uighur Muslims in concentration camps.

Trump defends that he’s been one of the toughest leaders on China. The Department of Justice is also looking into pursuing charges against Bolton for potentially leaking highly classified information.

Just The News put together a terrifying report on the announcement by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations. Data released Monday unearthed that the agency arrested more than 130 sex offenders illegally present in the United States in a nationwide campaign.

From Oct. 22 through Nov. 4, law enforcement arrested 138 noncitizens, “including some with an executable final order of removal,” ICE wrote in a statement about the operation.

“Many of those arrested were described as citizens of Mexico who were convicted of child sex crimes. Offenders’ published ages ranged from 24 to 65″ adds Just The News.

“These sex offenders will be removed from the U.S., ending and impeding their ability to further victimize residents,” said Salt Lake City ICE official Michael Bernacke.

Five noncitizen sex offenders were apprehended in the Salt Lake City area, 21 were arrested in the Los Angeles area, five in the Seattle area and 15 in the San Francisco area.

ICE’s removal office conducted 3,415 arrests of noncitizens for sexual assaults last fiscal year, authorities said.
