Congresswoman Lee Slams Appointment of John Bolton as National Security Advisor
WASHINGTON - Congresswoman Barbara Lee released the following statement on the news that John Bolton will replace H.R. McMaster as the National Security Advisor:
“This is dangerous news for the country and the world. John Bolton was easily one of the most extreme, pro-war members of the Bush Administration. Just imagine what havoc he could wreak whispering in Donald Trump’s ear.
“I hear the drumbeats of war.”
