Apparently a basketball player died in a helicopter crash, not somebody I knew about. And apparently some people got the flu.

Oh, and there were some pretty good pun threads in the TPM comments. They still haven’t fixed any of the bugs in their software yet, though… :man_shrugging:

Say what you want about Bolton, he is a bureaucratic jenius. Not only did he take and keep copious notes, it seems he also made strategic phone calls at the right time to cement his trustworthiness on this issue.

Just another thing Trump and his lawyers did not see coming.

“He strongly implied that something improper had occurred around her removal as our top diplomat in Kyiv.”

Engel has obviously misconstrued what Bolton was trying to convey, and concedes in his usage of the word “implied” that his perception of the conversation is one entirely of his own distorted imagination.

There, talking points made.

Oh, PS:
Engel heard this over the phone, so he can’t be sure it was actually Bolton he was talking to.
