Oppose Iraq War Architect John Bolton as National Security Adviser

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Oppose the nomination of Iraq war architect John Bolton as National Security Adviser.

Why is this important?

Iraq war architect and Iran war advocate John Bolton is reportedly one of four candidates being interviewed for National Security Adviser. [1] CNN says there are "signs of strong support inside and outside the administration for Bolton." [2]

Foreign Service veteran Greg Thielmann calls Bolton a "prime mover of the Iraq WMD fiasco." [3] Senator Rand Paul calls Bolton a "bad choice" who contradicts Trump's criticisms of the Iraq war, noting that "Bolton still believes the Iraq War was a good idea, he still believes regime change is a good idea." [4] J Street says Bolton is a "completely inappropriate choice" for "any role related to America’s relations with the rest of the world." [5]

Urge President Trump and Members of Congress to oppose the nomination of John Bolton to be National Security Adviser by signing our petition.

Reasons for signing

  • John Bolton has been found to be associated with the corrupt Cambridge Analytica, which stole and manipulated the data of 87 million Facebook users to target pro-Trump propaganda during the 2016 election. The group may well also have shady connections with Russian interference in the election. Bolton is morally, ethically, and possibly treasonously unfit to be National Security Advisor.
  • This is "WRONG, WRONG , WRONG.!!!!!! We will all "BURN" if this "MONSTER" becomes National Security Adviser.
  • . . .not my president
