FALLOUT


Well, the killing of Suleimani completely upends Pelosi’s impeachment strategy.  Was that its purpose?  Who knows?  Trump is on video claiming that Obama would invade Iran in 2018 to get himself re-elected, so make of that what you will.  The killing had one immediate side-effect of advantage to Trump:  it guarantees that Bolton will not testify against him.  By the bye, it is well worth reading this article linked to in a comment by Jerry Fresia.  It gave me a glimmer of hope, and in these dark days, I need all the glimmers I can glom onto.

Back to Hume.

Could you explain the link between this assassination and Bplton's not testifying?

Bolton is an extreme hawk. He quit over Trump's mid-east policies. he is ecstatic about the assassination and will do nothing now to hurt Trump.
