6. "He obviously saw that Trump had contempt for the Ukrainians. I think that had an impact"

I think Bolton is putting the chicken before the egg there. The whole reason Trump acted the way he did toward Ukraine is because he knew what Putin wanted. That started in 2016 already, probably under Manafort's influence, with the Trump campaign insisting on only one area of change in the Republican party platform--their statement of support for Ukraine. Even after Manafort was gone, there were likely multiple ways that message was still getting to Donny.
