Stephanopoulos on John Bolton’s Draft Manuscript: ‘A Seismic Shock’

‘The story blindsided the White House hit Capitol Hill like a thunderbolt’


STEPHANOPOULOS: “A trial that seemed to be on a steady and speedy path to certain acquittal has been hit by a seismic shock. ‘The New York Times’ reporting overnight that a draft manuscript submitted to the White House by former national security adviser John Bolton, the memoir, you see it right there, ‘The Room Where It Happened,’ claims that President Trump told Bolton back in August that he was conditioning aid to Ukraine on investigations into the Bidens and other Democrats, directly contradicting assertions by President Trump and his legal team. The story blindsided the White House hit Capitol Hill like a thunderbolt just ahead of the Trump team second day of making their case set to start just minutes from now. It has sparked a brand new debate over that key question of witnesses set to be voted on later this week.”
