Trump administration sues former National Security Adviser John Bolton over new book

The Trump administration has requested that a government judge request previous national security counsel John Bolton to stop the distribution of his forthcoming book on his White House residency, contending that Bolton will penetrate an agreement he marked with the Trump administration and was taking a chance with the presentation of arranged data on the off chance that he discharged the book.

The claim, recorded Tuesday evening in Washington, DC, government court, charges that Bolton’s 500 or more page original copy was “overflowing with arranged data,” and that Bolton pulled out of a continuous White House reviewing process for the book that he’d been committed to doing because of understandings he’d marked.

According to the prosecutors “(Bolton) struck a bargain with the United States as a condition of his employment in one of the most sensitive and important national security positions in the United States Government and now wants to renege on that bargain by unilaterally deciding that the prepublication review process is complete and deciding for himself whether classified information should be made public,”.

Bolton was fired last year by Trump for allegedly pressuring the billionaire businessman to go into a war with Iran and North Korea. After his sack, he then revealed plans of writing a tell-all book of his time at the White House, which Trump claims are an infringement of the non-disclosure agreement he signed before being employed.

The White House also claims Bolton will be revealing National security information with the release of the book scheduled for June 23.

Simon & Schuster, the book’s publishers, previously announced that Bolton’s book, “In the Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” would be released on June 23 as the book has already shipped to warehouses ahead of its scheduled release.

Reports claim Bolton is intent on publishing the book as scheduled, meaning he expects to deal with any ramifications from the administration in the aftermath, not before.
