John Bolton has $2 million book deal

Maybe heís saving the best dirt on President Trump for his tell-all book. John Bolton, the fired national security adviser who just blew off the impeachment inquiry, has signed a deal for a juicy White House memoir. The deal with Simon & Schuster will pay Bolton a hefty $2 million, two publishing officials familiar with the deal told the Associated Press on Saturday

The bushy-mustached national security hawk has already raised eyebrows with his odd approach to the impeachment probe. He rejected an invitation to testify last week before the Democratic-led inquiry, insisting along with another White House official that he needs a judge to decide whether a congressional subpoena trumps the presidentís orders to keep quiet.

Boltonís lawyer, Charles Cooper, boasted that Bolton has knowledge of Trump meetings and actions that impeachment investigators know nothing about. That tantalizing claim raises his value as a potential witness ó and also hypes his insider book.

He left the White House on very acrimonious terms after a falling out with Trump over the presidentís plans to host the Taliban at Camp David for Afghan peace talks right before the anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Trump said he fired Bolton and branded him a warmonger. Bolton claimed he quit ó and promised to eventually tell his side of the story.

5. He won't go hard on Trump. Why?

Because 2 million is pocket change compared to what he can make as a republican 'insider', lobbyist and paid speaker by remaining on the good side of the GOP.
