Former top Trump White House official urges GOP to dump ‘convicted felon’ ex-president

Former Donald Trump National Security John Bolton took to CNN on Friday morning to urge the Republican Party to abandon him as their 2024 presidential candidate after he was convicted on 34 felony charges in a Manhattan courtroom on Thursday.

Bolton, who has a contentious history with the now-convicted felon Trump, warned the GOP that Trump’s criminal record could have a devastating impact on down-ticket Republican candidates who would be put on the spot over him as they campaigned.

Speaking with host John Berman, Bolton claimed he has no intention of voting for President Joe Biden, before warning the GOP about a potential disaster in November.

“Well, I think it’s gonna be a big mistake for the party, for the country to nominate Donald Trump,” he told the CNN host. “Precisely because he may well win this election. I’m not going to vote for Biden either, but I think if there’s any chance left to get somebody else to replace Trump, which is highly unlikely to be sure, this ought to signal it to people.”

“We’ve never nominated a convicted felon before. and this is not a good time to start,” he wryly added, before continuing, “I think people of conscience ought to be thinking about how to approach this. You’ve heard a lot of criticism of the case on this network the day the indictment came down, I said if Trump is elected it could be because of this case. but the fact is you had 12 jurors find him guilty and that is going to reverberate with a lot of Americans who are not part of the Trump base and it could endanger not only the country, if Trump gets elected, it could endanger other Republicans on the ballot in November.”
