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.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
