From the October 20 edition of Fox News' America's Newsroom:
BILL HEMMER (HOST): You know, this is kind of sticky because you get five minutes for a Republican and five minutes for a Democrat. You get to direct and you get to redirect, and sometimes these guys, they're not real good at following a line of questioning in the first place.
JOHN BOLTON: Well I would never say anything like that about a member of Congress, but the fact is that I don't think anything particularly interesting is going to happen on Thursday. I think, for the reasons you state and others, a congressional hearing is a very bad form to find out difficult facts. You can't pursue a line of questioning. The members themselves take too much time giving their opinion instead of going after the witness.
HEMMER: So you're suggesting there's no big moment?
BOLTON: I would be surprised.
HEMMER: And in reality, it might be a snooze-fest?
BOLTON: I think that's exactly right.
