In an exclusive interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity Wednesday night, President Donald Trump argued that his former national security adviser John Bolton “broke the law” by disclosing highly classified information about the President and his negotiations with China and Russia in his soon to be released memoir “The Room Where It Happened.”
“He broke the law,” Trump said. “He was a washed-up guy, I gave him a chance. He couldn’t get Senate confirmed, so I gave him a non-Senate confirmed position, where I could just put him there, see how he worked. I wasn’t very enamored.”
Trump added that the two disagreed on many issues, including whether to send U.S. troops to Iraq, which, he said, was a move that Bolton strongly supported. Trump, however, didn’t want that to happen even before he became president, he said.
“But, he broke the law. Very simple. I mean, as much as it’s gonna be broken. This is highly classified, that’s the highest stage. It’s highly classified information and he did not have approval. That’s come out now very loud and very strong,” Trump explained.
Bolton’s book alleges that Trump gave “personal favors to dictators he liked.” One excerpt released early revealed an alleged conversation between Trump and China’s Xi Jinping in which Trump approved the continued detention of Uighur Muslims in concentration camps.
Trump, however, says he’s been the toughest President on China and commended the U.S. Trade Representative Ambassador Robert Lighthizer for telling members of Congress that this week.
The Department of Justice has signaled that there could be charges against Bolton coming if the book is released because of the classified information disclosed.
“Nobody has been tougher on Russia or China, than I have. Nobody even close,” Trump said. “China’s paying billions of dollars a year, they never gave us ten cents, and Biden’s son walked away with a billion and a half dollars to manage making hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars on it,
He continued, “So, nobody has been tough on China, and nobody has been tough on Russia like I have. And that’s in the record books… The last administration did nothing on either.”

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Fights Back DOJ Challenging Legal Citizenship Voter Law
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division with one clear message: ‘We’ll see you in court.’
Biden’s DOJ is challenging an Arizona law aimed to protect its citizens by ensuring only citizens can vote in elections.
Brnovich makes mention of a letter he received from Kristen Clarke, Assistant Attorney General, dated June 27, 2022 “expressing your intent to challenge HB 2492, Arizona’s law that assures only citizens are able to vote in our elections.”
“Please be assured that I will defend this law to the U.S. Supreme our if necessary and defeat the federal government’s efforts to interfere with our state’s election safeguards, as I did last year in Brnovich v. DNC” the letter continued.
“It is curious, however, that the Department of Justice would use its resources to challenge a common sense law inn Arizona designed to guard against non-citizen voting, while the Biden Administration nis simultaneously opening our borders to encourage a flood of illegal immigration.”
“Is the federal government attempting to undermine our sovereignty and destabilize our election infrastructure?” Brnovich asks. “I hope that is not your intention.” The Arizona Attorney General concludes his letter by writing “I strongly urge you to reconsider your pursuit of this misguided suit and to instead recognize Arizona’s constitutional authority to conduct lawful and secure elections.”
After Biden invites millions to illegally enter our country, his DOJ is challenging Arizona’s law to ensure only citizens can vote.
