Trump Administration Expected to Sue to Block Bolton Book

Trump Administration Expected to Sue to Block Bolton Book”

Donald Trump is set to sue to stop the publication of a tell-all book by John Bolton, his third national security adviser, ABC News reported on Monday.

ABC News said Bolton's book and interview will "take readers and viewers inside the decision-making process at the White House". The Trump administration is expected to file a lawsuit in the coming days seeking an injunction to block the release of the book, according to ABC News.

Meanwhile, President Trump's (pictured) administration plans to file an injunction in federal court in order to prevent Bolton's book from being released.

Bolton, whose book "The Room Where It Happened" is scheduled to hit bookshelves next Tuesday, will be interviewed by ABC News' Martha Raddatz on Sunday during a prime-time special from 9 to 10 p.m.

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed published last week, Bolton attorney Charles Cooper wrote that White House lawyer John Eisenberg penned a June 8 letter asserting the memoir contained classified information and publishing it would "violate his nondisclosure agreements".

In a related press release, the publisher said that in the weeks before Bolton's book was printed, Bolton worked with the NSC to address NSC's concerns, and the "final, published version of this book reflects those changes". He said it was "unprecedented" that the book would be published while Mr. Trump is still in office.

It will accuse the president of "misconduct" beyond the Ukraine scheme, which led to Trump's impeachment in the House of Representatives in December.

Bolton was expected to reveal other "Ukraine-like transgressions" in the book, Simon & Schuster wrote in the statement on Friday.

Bolton, a former ambassador to the United Nations, was national security adviser between April 2018 and September 2019.

Bolton has been criticized for declining to testify during Trump's impeachment, despite claiming to have firsthand knowledge of the president's involvement in a campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.

Bolton described Trump as a person 'for whom getting re-elected was the only thing that mattered'.

Joe Biden, the former vice president, is now the presumptive Democratic nominee.
