Something seems to be breaking on the Bolton battle. The White House may be yielding on evidence requests and communicating this through John McCain. Or they may be announcing that they think they have enough votes on cloture? Or — though I seriously doubt it — they may be throwing in the towel.
However, the most likely scenario to me is that the White House is yielding on something and letting McCain take credit.
Tomorrow a press advisory meeting has been called in Senator Frist’s office at 10:30 a.m. — and TWN will be attending.
Here is the announcement. There are no leaks thus far on what the content of Frist’s and McCain’s statements may be.
