Former United Nations Ambassador John BoltonJohn BoltonWhat to watch for on Day 3 of Senate impeachment trial Nadler gets under GOP's skin 'Emotion' from Trump's legal team wins presidential plaudits MORE on Sunday called on the Obama administration to release the 28 redacted pages of a 2002 congressional investigation into the 9/11 terror attacks.


In a radio interview with John Catsimatidis, the former Bush administration official said he had not read the secret pages but believes they should be released to the public.

“I think the thing to do is — because we could speculate for the next several hours on what these pages say — absent some possible compromise of U.S. sources and methods of intelligence-gathering, I’d just make all 28 pages public. Let’s see what’s in there, and then we can talk about it,” Bolton said.

“I think its important to note that the Saudi government itself has said for 10 or 12 years now that they agree to make the pages public, so I don’t know what the Obama administration’s holdup is. I think the sooner we get them out and let the American public see them, the better off we’ll be.”
