What’s the former National Security Advisor doing in the Middle East?
Fired White House national security adviser John Bolton was recently seen wandering the streets of Qatar, sparking questions about why the neocon was even in the Middle East.
Video of Bolton reportedly walking on a sidewalk in Doha, Qatar was posted to Twitter earlier this month.
Whether Bolton was in Qatar to take advantage of lobbying opportunities or if he was up to something more questionable remains a mystery.
One Twitter user noted Bolton was likely walking down Qatar’s government district, suggesting he may have been peddling his influence there.
The video must have been taken after Bolton was fired as National Security Advisor, because he would likely not have been wearing plain clothes otherwise and would likely be accompanied by a security detail.
Politico reporter Daniel Lippman reported that Bolton was in Qatar on “personal business.”
Bolton is currently being hailed as the left’s new hero after the New York Times reported Monday that Bolton has concerns about President Trump and Ukraine detailed in his upcoming memoir, “The Room Where It Happened.”
