‘Meeting Never Happened’ – Trump Responds to Last Minute Failed ‘Bombshell’ Bolton NY Times Story Meant to Shake Up Impeachment
The New York Times dropped another surprise Bolton story Friday morning ahead of the senate vote on impeachment witnesses.
The fake news hacks at the New York Times failed to influence the Friday vote because Senator Lisa Murkowski announced she would be voting against new witnesses.
“The House chose to send articles of impeachment that are rushed and flawed. I carefully considered the need for additional witnesses and documents, to cure the shortcomings of its process, but ultimately decided that I will vote against considering motions to subpoena,” the Alaska Republican said in a statement.
New York Times hack, Michael Shear desperately pushed a new fake news Bolton story on Friday morning.
“New details from John Bolton’s book describes a meeting in early May in which President Trump directed him to help with the pressure campaign on Ukraine, with Mick Mulvaney, Rudy Giuliani and Pat Cipollone present.”

Even if this story is true, the President is in charge of the executive branch and sets foreign policy.
Who cares if Trump pressured Ukraine. It’s called foreign policy.
The President responded in a statement and said the meeting never happened.
Trump statement: I never instructed John Bolton to set up a meeting for Rudy Giuliani, one of the greatest corruption fighters in America and by far the greatest mayor in the history of N.Y.C., to meet with President Zelensky. That meeting never happened
