1. You just can't make this shit up. I can hardly wait until the miniseries comes out.

Bolton is a vengeful SOB who likes to blow things up, and Trump should have realized that he isn't someone who'd tolerate being fired the way he was.

2. I admit, that I'm smiling at the thought.

There's some delicious irony in this administration being so deplorable so as to be brought down by one of our previous GOP bad guys.

Bolton Objected to Ukraine Pressure Campaign, Calling Giuliani ‘a Hand Grenade’
By Peter Baker and Nicholas Fandos
Oct. 14, 2019
Updated 10:44 p.m. ET

WASHINGTON — The effort to pressure Ukraine for political help provoked a heated confrontation inside the White House last summer that so alarmed John R. Bolton, then the national security adviser, that he told an aide to alert White House lawyers, House investigators were told on Monday.

Mr. Bolton got into a sharp exchange on July 10 with Gordon D. Sondland, the Trump donor turned ambassador to the European Union, who was working with Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, to press Ukraine to investigate Democrats, according to testimony provided to the investigators.

Mr. Bolton instructed Fiona Hill, the senior director for Russian and Eurasian affairs, to notify the chief lawyer for the National Security Council that Mr. Giuliani was working with Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, on a rogue operation with legal implications, Ms. Hill told the investigators, according to two people familiar with her closed-door testimony.

“I am not part of whatever drug deal Rudy and Mulvaney are cooking up,” Mr. Bolton, a Yale-trained lawyer, told Ms. Hill to tell White House lawyers, according to the testimony.

It was not the first time Mr. Bolton expressed grave concerns to Ms. Hill about Mr. Giuliani. “Giuliani’s a hand grenade who’s going to blow everybody up,” Ms. Hill quoted Mr. Bolton saying during an earlier conversation.

8. There HAS to be a tipping point somewhere!

And if Bolton is it, all the better.

16. Key that Bolton linked Giuliani to Mulvaney who was in charge of the withheld funds for Ukraine

Bolton and others seemed quite sure of a quid pro quo involving military security aid being held up in return for cooperation with Trump's obtaining political dirt. Reports have said that the transfer of budget funds to political appointee Mulvaney in WH was highly unusual or unprecedented.
