Just another bold face lie. The guy simply can't help himself from lying. On the lighter side of this, ole John Bolton will catch hell setting the record straight about DJT's lying about not knowing what burner phones are.

John Bolton, the former national security adviser in the Trump administration, told CBS News on Tuesday that he had heard former President Donald Trump use the phrase "burner phones" in several discussions and the former president knew what it meant.


"I have no idea what a burner phone is, to the best of my knowledge I have never even heard the term," Trump said.


But Bolton said he and Trump have spoken about how people have used "burner phones" to avoid having their calls scrutinized.

Of course their is absolutely no reason to believe Bolton, who hates Trump and would love to cause him some trouble.

Of course their is absolutely no reason to believe Trump, who is a chronic liar. Keep in mind, however, that far more people that were Trump paint a picture of him that is more aligned with Bolton's than not.

Didn't know who David Duke was, either. First thing I thought of when he said that.
Hell, he said he didn't know what "white supremacy" and "white supremacists" are.

Then "very fine people".

Yup.

I mean, I don't doubt it, but it's not really a lot of evidence.

Well, the latest is that the log was destroyed, not that the switchboard was necessarily avoided. The President's documented call to Mike Lee WAS done on the WH line and doesn't appear in the log. The log is missing.

The investigators will have them all run down in due course. And they’ll be able to identify where and when they were used.

And on the other hand, there are so many reasons to trust Trump's every word.

John Bolton is a loser.

Donald Trump is a loser.

Let them scuffle over which is the bigger one.

The longer congressional Republicans allow Trump to remain the "FACE" of the Party, the more difficult it will become to salvage their careers once this political "HOUSE OF CARDS" collapses!

Trump and Putin are 2 of a kind having spent their adult lives continuously pushing the "boundaries" - by not holding them accountable only encourages them to push further,
and further, and further .....

Which is more likely?
A. Bolton is lying because he hates Trump, although he has no motive to lie in this instance.

B. Trump, who lies about everything, is lying and has a strong motive to lie.

I know, it’s a difficult choice.
