(LifeSiteNews) — Former White House official John Bolton, who earned accolades from the legacy media for criticizing President Donald Trump in a 2020 book, raised eyebrows Tuesday when he admitted to having helped plan coups d’etat in foreign countries.

>Bolton, who served as Trump’s National Security Adviser for 17 months, made the comments during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday in which the conversation centered on the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Tapper suggested the riot was part of an orchestrated plot to overthrow the government, but Bolton pushed back, arguing, “that’s not the way Trump does things.”

UPDATE AUGUST 29, 2022 — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admits to Joe Rogan that the FBI was interested in supressing the Hunter Biden Laptop story! 

 

If you are not aware of the foreign security threats implicated in the "Hunter Biden Laptop Story" — and what they might mean for America's national security and foreign geopolitical affairs — that’s by design. 

You were never meant to discover the contents compromising President Joe Biden, and for good reason. The mainstream media kept you ignorant on purpose.  

In fact, the New York Post was censored by Twitter, Facebook, and all of Big Tech for even breaking the story that Hunter Biden’s laptop existed. 

The New York Times, Washington Post, and the entire mainstream media called any reference to the story “Russian disinformation." 

THAT’S WHY AMERICA MUST INSIST THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BIDEN FAMILY AND THE CONTENTS OF HUNTER’S LAPTOP! 

SIGN: Tell the Mainstream Media that viewers demand transparency on the Bidens NOW!

Enough is enough — America refuses to be kept wondering about our compromised national security, corrupt sweetheart business deals, and pay-to-play schemes detailed in the Hunter Biden Laptop. 

LIFESITENEWS EXPOSED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY HERE 

“Polling taken in April shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the president has been compromised by his family’s shady business dealings with China,” LifeSiteNews reported on July 1, 2022.  

Even CNN has finally begun to admit that the Hunter Biden Laptop is a serious problem

  • Illegal gun purchase
  • Sweetheart foreign Ukraine deals 
  • Political access to (then) Vice-President Joe Biden 
  • Federal probes and investigations  

Voters MUST know for whom they are voting. Sound the alarm with our new petition! SIGN TODAY! 

The First Amendments protects a Free Press to report the truth and protect the American people — but the mainstream media has betrayed its viewers, spinning pro-communist and pro-globalist narratives that are HURTING voters! 

Voters MUST learn about President Joe Biden’s compromised business dealings with China, Russia, Ukraine, and so many others — all pointing to the Hunter Biden Laptop. 

DEMAND THE TRUTH: WE WILL NO LONGER BE MISLED BY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!  

Media executives must learn that their viewership will continue tanking as long as executives run cover for their far-left base.  

Tell media executives that you will NO LONGER watch or trust their network until they fully reveal the contents of the Hunter Biden Laptop! 

It is not enough to simply change the channel. We must leave a parting shot to mainstream media executives telling them WHY consumers are refusing to watch any longer. 

SIGN NOW: DO NOT LET THE MEDIA SPIN THEIR OWN FAILURE BY DENYING US TRANSPARENCY! 

This is the only way to save the future of the media and win back a trustworthy Free Press for future generations.  

There is no telling what the mainstream media will continue to hide, deny, and deflect if they decide to run cover for the most powerful man in the world — the President of the United States. 

*** There is no time to lose—we refuse to let important information remain hidden from the American voters any longer! *** 

The Hunter Biden Laptop story is the single greatest piece of evidence indicating that America’s national security is likely compromised.  

We the People deserve to know the truth! 

STAND WITH THE PEOPLE: SIGN OUR PETITION ASAP!

While prefacing his statement by saying that “nothing Donald Trump did after the election in connection with the lie about the election fraud, nothing is defensible,” Bolton added that “it’s also a mistake” to say that “somehow, this was a carefully planned coup d’etat aimed at the Constitution.”

Calling Trump a “disturbance in the force,” Bolton told Tapper that what happened on January 6 was “not an attack on our democracy. It’s Donald Trump looking out for Donald Trump. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.”

Tapper disagreed, arguing that “one doesn’t have to be brilliant to attempt a coup.”

“As someone who has helped plan coups d’etat, you know, not here, but other places, it takes a lot of work. And that’s not what he did,” Bolton said.

Bolton’s comment sparked immediate backlash in the U.S. and abroad.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin and a Turkish media outlet supportive of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan suggested that Bolton’s comment revealed U.S. meddling in foreign governments, The Washington Post reported.

The Post pointed out that former U.S. intelligence agency officials took issue with the comments, arguing that contrary to his assertion, Bolton had never been involved in planning coups.

“He’s full of s***,” said John Sipher, who served for 28 years in the CIA’s National Clandestine Service. “He’s never planned a coup.”

“Bolton never touched a coup,” wrote former CIA station chief Milt Bearden, responding to Sipher. “And anyone who thinks fomenting coups is a good idea just doesn’t get out enough.”

Meanwhile, political commentators joked that Bolton had offered an unusual defense of the president, and suggested he revealed information that had long been suspected.

“Former Trump advisor John Bolton said the quiet part out loud,” said Daily Sceptic editor-in-chief Toby Young.

Former NewsTalkFM digital news editor Stephen McNiece called Bolton’s comment “One of the most honest — and by that I mean horrifying — admissions about US foreign policy we’ve seen from a prominent (former) US official.”

Daily Wire podcaster and author Michael Knowles joked, “I know John Bolton isn’t the most popular guy in conservative circles these days, but his defense of Trump here is just marvelous.”
