John Bolton, the former national security adviser to US President Donald Trump, regained control of his Twitter account on Friday He hinted that he could use it to reveal things about the president, with a mysterious "stay tuned."
Bolton's return to Twitter, fired on September 10 by Trump, gave much to talk about because the Democrats have been asking him to testify in the investigation for a political trial of the president for weeks, and believe that the former adviser could have key information to finish off case of pressures to Ukraine.
“Glad to be back on Twitter after more than two months. To know the ins and outs of all this, stay tuned ”Bolton tweeted first thing in the morning.
Two hours later, he added: “We have released the Twitter account, which was unfairly deleted after my resignation as a national security advisor. More to come ”, and added some ellipses.
Bolton did not clarify whether with his suggestion to reveal “ins and outs” he was referring to the reason for his prolonged absence on Twitter or to more substantial revelations about the Trump Presidency, although the former adviser is already writing a book about his period at the White House.
Bolton's departure from the West Wing was not friendly: Trump tweeted in September that he had been fired, and his former adviser wrote to numerous journalists to emphasize that he was not expelled, but that he resigned.
Interest in what Bolton knows has skyrocketed with the investigation for a political trial, because he was in charge of foreign policy in the White House when Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate one of his political rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden
According to Fiona Hill, one of his former subordinates on the National Security Council, Bolton once said that it had nothing to do with "the murky business they were cooking" other Trump advisers on Ukraine.
A Bolton lawyer said this month that the former adviser knows details "that have not been mentioned so far in the testimony of the investigation."
But Bolton has left in the hands of a court his possible participation in the investigation led by the Democrats, by asking a judge to decide whether to obey the judicial summons of Congress to testify or to the orders of the White House that he should not disclose anything you heard in the position.
Because, When Bolton issued his mysterious tweet, the responses of users rained asking him to testify under oath before the Lower House instead of making innuendo on Twitter.
On the other hand, the former national security adviser of former President Barack Obama, Susan Rice, suggested that the White House should not have returned his Twitter account to Bolton.
"When the Obama advisors at the White House left the Government, the White House ethics lawyers demanded that we file all the tweets issued when we were in the Government and re-create our accounts," Rice explained.
“In other words, I had to give up my more than 600,000 followers and start from scratch. It's good to see that the Trump White House continues to incur corruption, ”Rice added on Twitter.
