Justice Department Escalates Legal Fight With Bolton Over Book

Charlie Savage of the New York Times –

The Trump administration asked a judge to order the former national security adviser to stop publication of his memoir even as explosive details emerged.

The Justice Department asked a federal judge on Wednesday to immediately order President Trump’s former national security adviser John R. Bolton to halt publication of his memoir, which has already been printed and distributed to booksellers around the country, saying that it contained classified information even as details emerged from it.

It asked the judge to seize his proceeds from the book, “The Room Where It Happened,” and to order him to try to get Simon & Schuster to halt publication, but did not request emergency action.
