The network has scheduled a one-hour primetime special on Sunday, starting at 9 PM ET. Bolton’s book, The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir, is scheduled to be published two days later. Raddatz, chief global affairs correspondent and co-anchor of This Week with George Stephanopoulos, posted a photo on Twitter of the sit-down. “He’s the man the president doesn’t want you to hear,” Raddatz wrote.

According to ABC News, “Bolton will provide a first-hand account of crucial moments including private meetings in the Oval Office, the Putin-Trump summit in Helsinki and the president’s historic meetings with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. For the first time publicly, Bolton will also present his account of the July 25, 2019 phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and discuss why he didn’t testify during the president’s impeachment trial.”

According to a Simon & Schuster news release last week, “Trump’s Ukraine-like transgressions existed across the full range of his foreign policy — and Bolton documents exactly what those were ..."

5. Why?

ABC News’ World News Tonight with David Muir again was the most watched show in broadcast and cable last week, as the traditional evening newscasts enjoy a resurgence during the coronavirus crisis.

But the network said that the half-hour broadcast also reached a ratings milestone for the season to date, ranking No. 1 in total viewers and in two key demographics, adults 25-54 and adults 18-49 ...

11. Because they're ultimately complicit

with the Republican agenda and their continuing both sideism and equivocation.

I’m not singling out ABC, the rest (CBS, NBC) are equally bad having given Trump an open mike for his base during the height of the pandemic.

As for ABC, I see Bolton as basically getting a free infomercial. Ultimately it’s about money for ABC and for Bolton so fuck them both.

6. No, Thanks

Bolton could have and should have testified before the House Judiciary Committee but selling his book was much more important to him than protecting the country.

9. Irrespective of Bolton's obvious faults, this will hurt Trump, and that's why I'm in favor of it!

10. Maybe Bolton knew they weren't going to convict...

On Impeachment no matter what

And felt his revenge was better timed for the election

I do want to hear what he says. It can't be good for Trump.

Based on the Churchill philosophy, “If Hitler invaded Hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the Devil in the House of Commons.” I will read the book.
