Former Trump National Security Advisor, John Bolton, said Secretary of state Mike Pompeo has “eviscerated his credibility’ by claiming there will be a “smooth transition to a second Trump administration.”
During a news conference Tuesday, Pompeo suggested that Trump may ultimately defeat Joe Biden in the presidential election.
Pompeo’s comment angered many, including Bolton who spoke about the news conference on CNN on Wednesday.
“I think its delusional for Mike to say that,” said Bolton.
Bolton is the author of The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir, which came under fire after it was alleged to have contained classified information.
“Defendant Bolton has gambled with the national security of the United States. He has exposed his country to harm and himself to civil (and potentially criminal) liability,” said Judge Royce Lamberth of the D.C. District Court, which Pompeo cited in a response to Bolton on Twitter Thursday.
Bolton worked with Trump from 2018 to 2019, when he was fired amid fundamental disputes over how to handle major foreign policy challenges.
The 17-month partnership had grown very tense. The men could not come to an agreement on many things, including how they parted ways. Trump announced via Twitter that he had fired the adviser while Bolton insisted he resigned.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
