John Bolton, the former national security adviser to President Donald Trump, says he’s joined the advisory council of the Turkish Democracy Project, a newly launched nonprofit, “to shine a light on the darkening situation” in Turkey.  

“It’s time to sound the alarm on Turkey,” Bolton wrote in his Twitter announcement Wednesday. Bolton went on to describe Ankara as a one-time reliable NATO ally that has grown too close to Russia.
