GOP Sen. Ron Johnson: 'My guess' is John Bolton is telling truth about Trump and Ukraine

Source: Raw Story

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who once personally lobbied President Donald Trump to release the hold on military aid to Ukraine, seemed to give former national security adviser John Bolton some credibility while talking with reports on Monday.

Politico’s Kyle Cheney reports that Johnson said that “my guess is John Bolton tells the truth,” although he said he still wanted to hear the Trump administration’s full case and also questioned the “exquisite” timing of the leak about Bolton’s upcoming book, in which he reportedly says Trump told him he was holding up military aid to Ukraine until it agreed to launch an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.

4. Johnson also spent July 4, 2018 in Moscow too

He might want to get ahead of the flood before he is drowned too.

17. I know! I myself like to leave long rambling messages on ron's voicemail - I'm sure it doesnt do

anything to change his mind, but at least I feel better.

Kinda like in therapy a while back when I used pound a pillow with a bat and get angry at my long-dead abusive father. Didn't change anything but it really was therapeutic.

3. Neocon or faux "populist" Russian stooge

It is so hard to know where to stand in these cases.

I think it is hard to imagine that Bolton is okay with giving back what generations in the West worked to take away from mother Russia.

6. Mark Kirk, Rob Portman, and Johnson all signed a letter urging Ukraine to clean up their corruption.

It essentially supported Biden's position on removing Viktor Shokin.

7. The Political Land scape in

Wisconsin apparently has shifted a ton to the left since last week. Johnson is a creature of survival. Most likely the Milwaukee Journal has or is running a Editorial that does not flatter his shallow image.

8. JURI JOHNSON (MOSCOW MULE TEAM 8) Wisconsin's new Joe McCarthy

 

Ronnie is another disgrace Wisconsin has foisted on the US Senate.
He'll never live down 4th of July at Gorky Park with Vlad.

Country never learns from the history of GOP cons. Keeps repeating the same mistakes thinking outcomes will be different.

But will he vote for witnesses?

10. Now...tomorrow

Now:
reports that Johnson said that “my guess is John Bolton tells the truth,”


Tomorrow:
Senator Johnson is not even sure Trump has ever met Bolton or knows who he is"


Every time we get a quote about suggesting we should have witnesses or voting against trump, we see a quote that says the complete opposite within one or two days.
Seems to add support to the news report about heads and spikes that Schiff was quoting

16. Going way out on a limb there Senator

Why the hell would Bolton lie and ostracize himself from the party he’s spent his whole life in? Jesus 1 ounce of brain activity and you know it’s true. The whole story lines up with everything that’s been presented.
