The Trump administration compiled a list of “red flags” on national security adviser John Bolton, a stash of Trump transition vetting documents reveal.

Axios’s Jonathan Swan revealed the stash of President Donald Trump’s transition vetting documents on Sunday night’s “Axios” on HBO. The documents contained descriptions of prospective Trump administration officials and noted possible “red flags” about the people, including Bolton. A source told Swan that the documents were given to the president as he interviewed candidates.

The documents contained a variety of “red flags” on Bolton, including comments made about the president’s remarks, former President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, and stories that allege Bolton berated staff members while working at the State Department.

Red flags included Bolton’s criticism of Trump remarks on NATO in July 2016, saying that these remarks encouraged Russian aggression and were “a dagger at the heart of the most successful military/political alliance in human history.”
