Bolton Briefs Trump that WMDs Were in Syria All Along
Sources within the White House have confirmed National Security Advisor, John Bolton has briefed President Trump that WMDs have been located in Syria.
The briefing occurred in the Oval Office on Friday night, hours before the President approved air strikes on various Syrian military locations.
Mr. Bolton is said to have briefed the President that credible intelligence sourced from Niger indicated the Assad regime were in possession of WMDs.
After being re-assured several times that Robert Mueller appears to be unconnected to the regime's WMD capability, a downbeat President Trump agreed that air strikes should be limited to Syrian targets only.
Mr. Bolton has suggested to colleagues that air strikes are likely to escalate across the Middle East in the coming days.
