Ousted National Security Adviser John Bolton posted a bizarrely cryptic tweet on Friday morning, promising a "backstory" on why he was off Twitter for two months. "Out of fear of what I may say?"

In a series of cryptic tweets on Friday, Bolton teased his 770,000 followers, telling them to "stay tuned" for a "backstory" following his two month absence.

"We have now liberated the Twitter account, previously suppressed unfairly in the aftermath of my resignation as National Security Advisor", Bolton added.

Before Friday, Mr. Bolton's last tweet was on September 10, when he said, "I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, 'Let's talk about it tomorrow.'" Mr. Trump had tweeted 12 minutes earlier that he asked for Mr. Bolton's resignation.

During a lengthy interview on "Fox and Friends" Friday morning, President Trump was asked about the tweet, and he denied that the White House froze Bolton's account.(It's unclear if the White House can even do that, but Fox News anchors posed the question). "No, I actually had a good relationship with John".

Since leaving, Bolton has signed a $2 million book deal for a memoir, which has not yet been released, and has refused calls to testify in the impeachment inquiry.

Later, a story broke that Bolton's personal attorney teased in a letter to Congress that his client had "many relevant meetings and conversations that have not yet been discussed" in the impeachment probe, though, so far, Bolton has declined to voluntarily testify.

Bolton has repeatedly cropped up in impeachment proceedings testimony as a key witness in President Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

Then, because his two-month vacation from the internet seemingly led him to forget how to use it, Bolton retweeted himself, and then sent a more dramatic version of his first message about two and a half hours later.

Bolton is reportedly refusing to testify until a judge rules in a case about whether former Trump officials should comply with their congressional subpoenas or the White House's order not to cooperate.
