Donald Trump filed a lawsuit to stop this book from seeing the light of day
Donald Trump’s re-election effort is taking fire from all sides.
Now the President is about to get stabbed in the back by a former top aide.
And that’s why Donald Trump filed a lawsuit to stop this book from seeing the light of day.
On Tuesday, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit to block publication of former National Security Advisor John Bolton.
Trump fired Bolton last summer because Bolton refused to support the President’s “America First” foreign policy agenda.
Now Bolton is out for revenge by publishing a gossip-filled book just months before the Presidential election.
Speaking to reporters, the President blasted Bolton for being a snake by publishing a book critical of Trump after Trump brought him back into a high profile role in Washington, D.C.
“I gave him a break. He couldn’t get Senate-confirmed. He was never Senate-confirmed the first time. I don’t think he’s supposed to even be calling himself an ambassador because he couldn’t get Senate-confirmed,” Trump stated.
“He stayed for a short while, and I felt that it was not appropriate that he stay any longer. I wasn’t impressed,” Trump added.
President Trump then claimed he considered his conversations with former National Security Advisor Bolton to be classified and that Bolton was violating the law by publishing a book describing what Bolton and the President talked about.
“So that would mean that if he wrote a book and if the — the book gets out, he’s broken the law. And I would think that he would have criminal problems,” the President added.
Those comments were a prelude to the Justice Department filing a lawsuit to stop publication claiming Bolton violated a nondisclosure agreement.
But even if the President succeeds in blocking Bolton’s book from seeing the light of day Bolton will still likely blab all he wants to the Fake News Media.
And this Sunday night, ABC news is running a primetime special where Bolton will spill his guts to anchor Martha Raddatz.
