Bolton on Snowden/NSA (June 2013): “Who died and made him King?”

Just posted a clip from an interview I did with former UN Ambassador John Bolton on June 12, 2013. The clip focuses on Bolton’s evaluation of Snowden and the NSA programs Snowden revealed just weeks before this interview. It may give you some idea of what to expect from Bolton as National Security Advisor. In particular, Bolton values “democratic legitimacy” over individual judgement, and believes that foreign aggressors are a bigger danger to the United States than our own government.

Any help you can give me sharing this interview clip is greatly appreciated!

“Is Fake News a Fake Issue?” TODAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)
