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.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’
Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”
“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”
The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.
The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.
Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
