In response to a coy John Bolton tweet this morning, John Berman tells Bolton to "stop screwing around. I mean, at this point, if you want to sell your books, go sell your books. If you want to talk to Congress, talk to Congress. But this isn't a game. It's not a game, it's really not a game. Stay tuned to what? If you want to talk to Congress, do it. If you're never going to do it, say, 'I'm never going to do it.'

"If he's going to write an honest book, no Republican is going to buy it. If he's not going to testify, no Democrat is going to buy it. He's got to make a decision."

That's right. Let's not reward Bolton for this little dance. If he doesn't care enough to testify, why should anyone want to hear what he has to say?

Can you help us out?
