From the New York Times, a passage on the guy who is supporting Townsel’s account:
The new account that corroborated Ms. Townsel’s complaints against Mr. Bolton was offered by Uno Ramat, who worked with her on an Agency for International Development project in Kyrgyzstan in 1994. Mr. Ramat said Mr. Bolton, who was then a lawyer representing Ms. Townsel’s and Mr. Ramat’s employer, International Business and Technical Consultants Inc., flew to Moscow to counter Ms. Townsel’s complaints that the company was slow in providing cash to pay suppliers.
“He was very intimidating and nasty,” Mr. Ramat said in a telephone interview from Toronto. “He terrorized the office, he really did.”
Mr. Ramat also said he recalled a series of phone calls from Ms. Townsel, who was in Moscow, complaining of Mr. Bolton’s behavior. He said she complained at the time, as she has in recent days, that Mr. Bolton followed her around the hotel, pounded on her door and threatened her.
