International Criminal Court(ICC)
"We will not cooperate, engage, fund, or assist the ICC in any way. This president will not allow American citizens to be prosecuted by foreign bureaucrats, and he will not allow other nations to dictate our means of self-defense"
Bolton Goes After the Illegitimate and Unaccountable ICC
Snippet From Article:
The United States is not a member of the ICC, thanks in part to Mr. Bolton’s strong opposition while serving in the George W. Bush administration. He pointed in his Federalist Society speech to the “potentially enormous, essentially unaccountable powers” granted to the ICC and its prosecutor under the Rome Statute that created it. The ICC claims “automatic jurisdiction” to investigate and prosecute individuals for alleged genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes of aggression even if their own governments have not recognized, signed, or ratified the Rome Statute treaty, so long as the alleged crime occurred within a state or territory that has joined the treaty. In other words, if a real country or a pretend-state like “Palestine” on whose soil the alleged crime was committed has ratified the Rome Statute, the accused may be tried and punished by the ICC whether or not that individual is from a country that ratified the Rome Statute. Mr. Bolton said in his Federalist Society speech that “alongside numerous other glaring and significant flaws, the International Criminal Court constituted an assault on the constitutional rights of the American people and the sovereignty of the United States.”
