“We warned during the trial that you could only count on Donald Trump to do what’s right for him, not what’s right for the country. And John Bolton says that is exactly this president’s pattern and practice, that he didn’t see a significant national foreign policy decision made on any other basis than the president’s personal and political re-election interest,” House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday
“We made the case when we were urging his testimony in the Senate that the senators would one day have to explain why they didn’t want to hear from him when they had the opportunity. Those that haven’t run away from the camera have explained — Trump is guilty. They found him guilty, the House proved him guilty, but they weren’t prepared to do anything about it.”
“If you believe he has done impeachable acts with the Chinese government, can you really wait until after the election to put Bolton under oath, to start the process?” NBC News anchor Chuck Todd asked Rep. Adam Schiff.
“I don’t think we should wait if we conclude that there are important things he says that needs to be exposed to the public,” Schiff responded. Specifically, Schiff asserted that “those comments that the president made when only the interpreter and President Xi [Jinping] was in the room, blessing the concentration camps of the Uighurs, it’s exactly why we want to know what he said to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin when he’s alone in the room with Putin.”
“Exposure of this president’s conduct is the best way to protect this country,” Schiff said, adding that the president was “dealing away national security … in order to help himself.”
Bolton’s staff were asked to testify before the House to Trump’s abuses, and did. They had a lot to lose and showed real courage.
When Bolton was asked, he refused, and said he’d sue if subpoenaed. Instead, he saved it for a book.
Bolton may be an author, but he’s no patriot.

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall
As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.
“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”
In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.
“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”
“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
