A new administration would fire more than President Donald Trump could in the coming weeks, but fired National Security Adviser John Bolton still fears the president has "an enemies list."

"What I fear is," Bolton told The Washington Post in an interview posted by C-SPAN, "there's an enemies list in the White House of people still to fire and that there's more to come."

Bolton said "there probably is" an enemies list in "Donald Trump's head."

Department of Homeland Security cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs was fired, Bolton surmised, for saying there was no evidence of election hacking, fraud, or "malfeasance."

That was "completely contrary to the fantasy world the president lives in: That there's a conspiracy so vast and successful that it's proceeding without leaving any evidence behind," Bolton claimed.

"You know, under that kind of theory, you can posit evil doing forever."

Bolton said massive turnover before the next president's term begins would impact a smooth transition of power.

"There's no reason to decapitate your national security team with less than ten weeks to go until the transition," Bolton said. "That will inevitably cause disruptions in the agencies themselves, let alone their ability to hand off smoothly."
