Bolton Says International Criminal Court is ‘Illegitimate’

(Worthy News) – The United States is already not party to the International Criminal Court, but in a striking decision announced Monday by National Security Advisor John Bolton the Trump administration said it would not cooperate at all with the tribunal – and will moreover take punitive steps against it if it goes after U.S. or allied nationals.

Describing the ICC as “ineffective, unaccountable and indeed, outright dangerous,” Bolton said in a speech to the Federalist Society that the U.S. “will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court.”

He said if the court proceeds with investigations into alleged wrongdoing by U.S. forces in Afghanistan, or takes action against Israel or other U.S. allies, “we will not sit quietly.” [ Source: CNS News (Read More…) ]
