Trump: Bolton Is Lying, He’s Just Trying To Sell His Book

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Monday denied that he told former national security adviser John Bolton that releasing security aid for Ukraine was dependent on the country investigating his political rivals, following a report that Bolton describes such an exchange in his forthcoming book.

He also claimed he released the military aid to Ukraine “without any conditions or investigations – and far ahead of schedule.” However, the aid was only released after news reports were published describing the freeze, and not all of the $391 million in assistance was distributed before the end of the fiscal year.
