John Bolton Update

JOHN BOLTON UPDATE….Laura Rozen is watching C-SPAN and reports that today’s testimony against John Bolton from former INR chief Carl Ford was devastating. “In my long experience, I have never seen anyone so abusive to a subordinate,” Ford said about Bolton’s attempts to intimidate an analyst who had provided information Bolton didn’t like.

Laura has other highlights as well, including what seems like a tacit admission from committee chair Dick Lugar that Bolton’s nomination could be in trouble. Stay tuned.
