The curious case of John Bolton and his PAC and his SuperPAC, as previously discussed here and here

 I mean John Bolton really, really liked Cambridge Analytica, as previously discussed here

and John Bolton’s PAC and SuperPAC received millions of dollars in Donations from a one Mr Bob Mercer, as discussed here

And it’s not like I haven’t discussed Cambridge Analytica and Bolton and the Mercer, found here.

Trump’s third National Security Advisor, as previously discussed here.

 

John Bolton PAC & SuperPAC 

Of course shortly after John War-Mongering Bolton accepted the appointment to become Donald Trump’s third National Security Advisor, his SuperPAC made the following announcement on their website. I’ve taken the liberty of archiving it.

 

John Bolton SuperPAC FEC ID- C00542464

 

Live url found here, Archived link found here.

 

 

John Bolton PAC FEC ID- C00542431

Accordingly a similar announcement posted on John Bolton PAC.

live url found here and the Archived url found here

 

Let there be zero ambiguity, John Bolton’s PAC and SuperPAC clearly state both organizations: 

 

THE JOHN BOLTON PAC IS SUSPENDING ALL POLITICAL ACTIVITIES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE AS OF MARCH 31, 2018.

THE JOHN BOLTON SUPER PAC IS SUSPENDING ALL FUTURE POLITICAL ACTIVITIES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE AS OF MARCH 31, 2018.

 

Which makes the June 20, 2018 FEC Report all the more curious, at all times I will link to the FEC data source.

John Bolton SuperPAC

FEC ID: C00542464 

The May 2018 FEC Report for the aforementioned SuperPAC shows John Bolton had in excess of $4,037,187.82 CASH on hand, link to report here. To be fair, it DOES appear that the SuperPAC stopped receiving donations. Conversely they 

 

 

SuperPAC May 1-31 FEC Report (filed on June 20, 2018) shows the SuperPAC had expenditures of: $51980.28 (see line # 7 on page 2 of Form 3X). Link to June 20th FEC Report, found here.

 

 

I now refer you to pages 8 and 9 of John Bolton SuperPAC June 20, 2018 FEC Form 3X. There are two large expenditures:

PRISMGROUP* - COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY CONSULTING

May 4, 2018 for the amount of: $21708.44

CMDI - DATA MANAGEMENT SERVICES

May 4, 2018 for the amount of: $2510.35

 

 

John Bolton PAC

FEC ID- C00542431

Bolton PAC  May 1-31 FEC Report (filed on June 20, 2018) shows the SuperPAC had expenditures of: $49470.81

See line # 7 on page 2 of Form 3X. Link to June 20th FEC Report, found here.

I now refer you to pages 12 & 13 of John Bolton PAC FEC report, again John Bolton announced his PAC and SuperPAC should suspended political activities effective March 31, 2018, so why is he paying for Communication Strategies and Data Services. Keep in mind both entities have millions of dollars of cash on hand.

 

 

This is where things get a tad bit interesting, if you compare the PAC & SuperPAC employees are paid by BOTH entities as are a few “vendors” are also paid by John Bolton’s PAC and SuperPAC.  I will admit I didn’t catch it at first.  It was until I ran several queries for “individual” disbursement did I realize I had glossed over this data point.

My proof in concept. 

The PAC and SuperPAC paid (assumption that she’s an “employee”)

The PAC and SuperPAC paid (assumption that she’s an “employee”)

KATHY FLAVIN, see FEC Raw but aggregated data, here.

The John Bolton PAC and SuperPAC  PRISMGROUP had multiple checks cut by both Bolton entities, link to FEC data found here. But here’s my question, as previously detailed, John Bolton stated his PAC and SuperPAC “suspended” political operations on March 31, 2018. So why would they pay PrismGroup for COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY CONSULTING in April and May?

 

 

I will say the PRISM STRATEGY GROUP payment, I have many many questions. Because Bolton’s role as Trump’s National Security Advisor would all but preclude him from having a PAC much less a SuperPAC paying a firm with a Global presence. I ran a FARA search and thus far Prism is NOT Registered, even though this Company markets itself as a “Global Group” also their website looks awfully familiar, like Cambridge Analytica familiar but here take a look for yourself. PrismGroup

It’s odd noting in the FARA database and nothing in the Senate or House LDA Database. So what exactly is John Bolton paying for?

 

Here’s a current list of Prism’s Team, kind of weird they cite offices in London & Prague along with their HQ in DC. Yet nothing in the logical Government Databases, particularly for a “lobbying firm”, much less a Global Lobbying Firm. But hey what do I know, I don’t even have a LinkedIn account (I’m sorry but that just never ever gets old).

 

 

And let’s be honest, who among us has appeared on a program pushing for Gun Rights of Russians, I mean isn’t that the American way? NOT. Also let’s not forget that Bolton is headed to Moscow on July 4th, that’s literally the biggest F and U to Americans John no really it is. Also in the late 1980’s my dad worked with you, he thinks your bat shit crazy with serious rage issues. Although “ambassador” Bolton can you please explain this random 2013 TV appearance?
