Trump Issues Frantic Denial Of John Bolton’s Explosive Claims About Ukraine: ‘It’s Only to Sell a Book’

In a frantic series of tweets posted just after midnight, President Donald Trump denied John Bolton’s claim that that Ukraine aid was tied to an investigation of Joe Biden and his son.

Excerpts from Bolton’s new book leaked Sunday, claim that Trump told him that he would keep the Ukraine aid frozen until an investigation of Joe Biden and his son was announced by Ukraine.

Bolton’s revelation put new pressure on Republican senators to approve additional witness testimony in the impeachment trial.

The House asked Bolton to testify publicly. However, he refused to show up for a scheduled deposition in November before the House impeachment inquiry and said he would testify before the Senate trial if he was subpoenaed.

Now Trump is extremely worried.

“The Democrat controlled House never even asked John Bolton to testify,” Trump tweeted Monday morning. “It is up to them, not up to the Senate!”

He continued: “I NEVER told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens. In fact, he never complained about this at the time of his very public termination. If John Bolton said this, it was only to sell a book.”

“With that being said, the transcripts of my calls with President Zelensky are all the proof that is needed, in addition to the fact that President Zelensky & the Foreign Minister of Ukraine said there was no pressure and no problems,” he tweeted. “Additionally, I met with President Zelensky at the United Nations (Democrats said I never met) and released the military aid to Ukraine without any conditions or investigations – and far ahead of schedule. I also allowed Ukraine to purchase Javelin anti-tank missiles. My Administration has done far more than the previous Administration.”
