South Korea Refutes Bolton’s Account of North Korea Summit

The government of South Korea has responded to Jonh Bolton’s claims about the North Korea summit by claiming that he “substantially distorts facts.”

According to The Daily Wire:

South Korea is disputing former national security adviser John Bolton’s account of ’s negotiations with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

A South Korean security official says that Bolton’s version of the events surrounding three U.S.-North Korea summits that took place from June 2018-June 2019 is “distorted.” In his book, Bolton claims that South Korean President Moon Jae-in set unrealistic expectations for the talks while pursuing his own agenda to unify the Korean peninsula. Bolton describes Moon as “schizophrenic,” according to Reuters.

“It does not reflect accurate facts and substantially distorts facts,” South Korea national security adviser Chung Eui-yong said, adding that Bolton’s published account of internal deliberations between the heads of state set a “dangerous precedent.”

“Unilaterally publishing consultations made based on mutual trust violates the basic principles of diplomacy and could severely damage future negotiations,” Chung said.

President Trump has called Bolton a “wacko.” Many have also asserted that Bolton is damaging national security in an effort to sell books.

Hopefully, every foreign dignitary who ever dealt with Walrus comes out and disputes his accounts. If there are top secrets being divulged he should be arrested and charged but he’ll just claim that the book is Fiction!!

Bolton doesn’t understand his old job description, he was an ADVISOR. He was NOT the President of the United States. He worked for the President in an advisory capacity. The President has a right to take or reject the advice given to him by any of his ADVISORS. Bolton got fired, Bolton is pissed, Bolton wrote a book showing the world how pissed he is. Nothing more than an employee that got fired and is trying to justify his own importance.

I kind of hope he screws up and the Feds take him to task with a greeting at the federal penitentiary.

The entire bunch at NSA need review and in many cases dismissal. The agencies which our founders never envisioned, usurped the Presidency. Particular personalities within The DNC along with OBAMA subverted many alphabet agencies and set them upon American Citizens and P.O.T.U.S.45. For this the D.O.J. just shrugs its legal weight? An adjustment to this period is going to materialize quite quickly because national divides such as this one, are not very different than that which plunged USA into 1859-60. People will say racism was the issue, but that can be said in many major conflicts. The issue will be Democrat-SOCIALISM here, and encroaching Chinese Communism everywhere else in our sphere of influence. The DNC must be put down. They cheat! They’re communists; they steal, lie and kill unborn human beings!
