Washington D.C. – Former Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, Ambassador John R. Bolton, announced today that he will once again endorse Senator Ron Johnson for the U.S. Senate and the John Bolton PAC will contribute $5,000 to his primary campaign.

“We live in dangerous times. America needs strong leaders who are committed to fighting for U.S. interests abroad while keeping Americans safe at home. I believe Ron Johnson is prepared to do just that,” said Ambassador Bolton.

“The Biden Administration’s strategic incoherence has put American security, prestige, and credibility on the line. Given Russian threats, Chinese assertiveness, and the growing nuclear menace of Iran and North Korea, now is exactly the right time for voters to take a serious interest in national security.”

Senator Ron Johnson issued the following statement in response to Ambassador Bolton’s endorsement and contribution to his campaign:

“The Biden administration’s embarrassing and dangerous withdrawal from Afghanistan has weakened America and tempted adversaries like Russia, China, Iran and North Korea to become more aggressive. It is not surprising that Russia chose to invade Ukraine with Biden in power. John Bolton and I both agree with Ronald Reagan’s dictum that America achieves peace through strength, and I appreciate his support.”

Ambassador Bolton plans to significantly increase candidate endorsements and contributions in this election cycle. Founded in 2013, the John Bolton PAC continues to be one of the most active leadership PACs in the country.

About the John Bolton PAC (www.boltonpac.com): Through his PAC, SuperPAC and Foundation, Ambassador John Bolton defends America by raising the importance of national security in public discourse and supporting candidates who believe in strong national security policies. Ambassador Bolton has worked hard to restore conservative leadership, which must reverse the recent policies of drift, decline and defeat. America must rise to the occasion and acknowledge the indispensable role we play in the world. Through 2020, Ambassador Bolton’s endorsed over 200 candidates and raised nearly $20 million for his organizations.

John Bolton Endorses and Makes PAC Contribution to Matt Jacobs for Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Ambassador John Bolton announced today that he is endorsing Matt Jacobs for Congress (CA-26) and that the John Bolton PAC will donate $5,000 to his campaign.

Ambassador Bolton is committed to supporting candidates for elected office who believe in protecting the United States’ vital freedoms at home by securing American interests in a challenging world with a strong, clear and dependable national security policy resting on constancy and resolve. The John Bolton PAC will do so through contributions in primary and general election contests.

On Matt Jacobs: “As a federal prosecutor, Matt Jacobs investigated and prosecuted some of America’s worst enemies – including al-Qaeda terrorists,” Bolton said. “That’s the kind of toughness we need if America’s going to stand up to threats like Russia and China.”

On the Midterm Election: “This midterm election will be a referendum on Joe Biden’s disastrous national security policies. It’s the first opportunity for voters to respond to Biden’s disastrous retreat in Afghanistan and his embarrassing failure to deter Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. I believe everyday Americans have a better sense of our security needs and this election will prove it.”

Statement from Matt Jacobs: “Ambassador John Bolton has long been a champion of American strength and leadership on the world stage. The Biden Administration’s abject failures in Afghanistan and Eastern Europe have weakened America and strengthened our foes. I’m honored to have the support of Ambassador Bolton, who understands the many security threats facing our nation and how we must deal with them.”

Through his PAC, SuperPAC and Foundation, Ambassador John Bolton defends America by raising the importance of national security in public discourse and supporting candidates who believe in strong national security policies. Ambassador Bolton has worked hard to restore conservative leadership, which must reverse the recent policies of drift, decline and defeat. America must rise to the occasion and acknowledge the indispensable role we play in the world. Through 2020, Ambassador Bolton’s endorsed over 250 candidates and raised nearly $20 million for his organizations.

STATEMENT OF JOHN R. BOLTON

During the present impeachment controversy, I have tried to meet my obligations both as a citizen and as former National Security Advisor. My colleague, Dr. Charles Kupperman, faced with a House committee subpoena on the one hand, and a Presidential directive not to testify on the other, sought final resolution of this Constitutional conflict from the Federal judiciary. After my counsel informed the House committee that I too would seek judicial resolution of these Constitutional issues, the committee chose not to subpoena me. Nevertheless, I publicly resolved to be guided by the outcome of Dr. Kupperman’s case.

But both the President and the House of Representatives opposed his effort on jurisdictional grounds, and each other on the merits. The House committee went so far as to withdraw its subpoena to Dr. Kupperman in a deliberate attempt to moot the case and deprive the court of jurisdiction. Judge Richard Leon, in a carefully reasoned opinion on December 30, held Dr. Kupperman’s case to be moot, and therefore did not reach the separation-of-powers issues.

The House has concluded its Constitutional responsibility by adopting Articles of Impeachment related to the Ukraine matter. It now falls to the Senate to fulfill its Constitutional obligation to try impeachments, and it does not appear possible that a final judicial resolution of the still-unanswered Constitutional questions can be obtained before the Senate acts.

Accordingly, since my testimony is once again at issue, I have had to resolve the serious competing issues as best I could, based on careful consideration and study. I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify.
