General Keith Kellogg harshly criticized former National Security Adviser John Bolton, accusing him of fabricating information to make it more likely that the United States would engage in military conflict abroad.

“John Bolton is an architect of failure,” Kellogg told Fox News. “He had his own agenda, he pushed his own agenda. And when it didn’t work, he tried to basically stifle the discussion going forward, or lie to the President of the United States.”
“I was in there when it happened, I saw him when he fabricated information that nearly caused us to commence military operations in Iran because of a loss of a drone that we knew he had incorrect information and he passed that incorrect information to the President. I saw him on several occasions do that,” Kellogg adds.
Gen. Kellogg also accuses Bolton of sabotaging the peace deal President Trump was trying to put together in Afghanistan last year.
John Bolton “thinks about John Bolton before he thinks about anybody else,” Kellogg said.
Kellogg is currently serving as the National Security Adviser to Vice-President Mike Pence.
