Report: Sen. McConnell Angry At White House Over Bolton Manuscript

Senate Lawmakers Speak To The Press After Weekly Policy Luncheons

(Washington, DC) - Reports say Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is angry at the White House over an explosive manuscript by ex-national security adviser John Bolton. 

The New York Times reported Sunday that the upcoming book includes a charge by Bolton that Trump told him he wanted Ukranian military aid withheld until that country helped in investigations to damage Democrats.

 

Bolton's lawyer told The Times he had provided a copy of the book to the Trump administration on December 30th, so it could be reviewed for classified information. 

McConnell's spokesman told the Courier-Journal that the Kentucky Republican "did not have any advance notice" that the National Security Council reportedly had a copy of the manuscript for weeks.

President Trump has refuted Bolton's account.
