Wheeee, another bomb for Donald Trump to dodge. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving schmuck. Former national security adviser John Bolton’s tell-all book on the Trump administration was enjoined from publication for a few months, alleging that Bolton had published classified information, but it will drop June 23. Washington Post:
The president has said that Bolton should not publish the book until after the election and has called him a “traitor” in private for writing a negative tell-all book, The Washington Post has previously reported.
Bolton is planning to publish even if the White House does not give publication approval, people familiar with his thinking say, and believes he has removed all classified material. […]
The 592-page book is expected to provide an unvarnished and caustic account of life inside the White House from the national security adviser’s perspective. It is expected to describe the president’s decision-making process, his warring advisers and a number of foreign policy topics, from Ukraine and Venezuela to North Korea and Iran.
The book caused a ruckus earlier this year, after the New York Times reported that Bolton’s book would substantiate claims that Trump withheld military aid to pressure Ukraine’s leader to launch a political investigation. People familiar with the book say Bolton will describe Ukrainian interactions in detail.
I can hardly wait. Bolton is talking to various television networks about doing interviews to promote the book. I hope it’s a best seller, filled with juicy anecdotes and I further hope that it’s got enough incendiary content to inspire a few Lincoln Project ads. Bolton has been in politics a long time. He’s not going to let Trump steal his legacy. I’m betting this book is going to be a real scorcher.
