White House adviser Peter Navarro compares Bolton’s book to ‘revenge porn’ [Video]

WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:

  • Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro attacked John Bolton over his tell-all memoir, saying the former administration official was only after the money.
  • Bolton’s book dropped some shocking revelations against Trump, and the White House attempted to prevent it from being released.
  • Democrats also criticized Bolton for refusing to testify against Trump during the impeachment investigation.

On Thursday, Trump administration trade expert Peter Navarro lambasted former national security adviser John Bolton over his memoir, comparing the latter’s work similar to sharing sexually explicit contents of a former partner online.

“My take on him is Big Lie Bolton, it’s Book Deal Bolton, he is doing it for the money, that is pretty clear, and my view is it is the Washington swamp’s equivalent of revenge porn,” Navarro told reporters.

He shared the same sentiments by several White House officials and Republican legislators who refuted the incriminatory claims stated in Bolton’s book. They said the former Trump official as a displeased ex-staffer attempting to make money while not part of the administration.

An author himself, Navarro, said the pattern of behavior Bolton has shown in his book deal was the same with what he did during the Bush administration, and that is to push his agenda. Whenever Bolton quits or gets fired, he then attacks the people who employed him, Navarro added.

“He did that with the Bush administration after he helped get the Bush administration into the Iraq War by pushing the big lie that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction,” Navarro continued. “That’s the pattern.”

Bolton received disapprovals from different sides of the political fence following after some of the excerpts from his book was released through newspaper outlets this Wednesday.

President Donald Trump described Boston as a liar with the Department of Justice (DOJ) slapping the former national adviser with a lawsuit in an attempt to stop the release of  his book, “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir.”

Meanwhile, Democrats have rebuked Bolton for declining to be a witness during the House impeachment proceedings against Trump. 

Bolton’s book contains several incriminatory claims about Trump. The author said that Trump is ignorant of simple foreign policy details, claiming only personal interests motivate the president rather than the nation, adding that the chief executive is comfortable dealing with authoritarian leaders.

In his latest work, Bolton also accused Trump of seeking help from Chinese President Xi Jinping in his reelection bid by boosting the U.S agricultural procurements to support the country’s farmers.

Trump administration officials have denied Bolton’s claims.
