The President has specifically insisted to aides that Bolton's book,"The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir," shouldn't be published before the November election, the two people told the Post.News of Trump's efforts come as Bolton and his lawyers have been embroiled in a battle with the White House for weeks over the contents of the book, which is due to be published in March. The administration is raising concerns about what it claims is the publication of classified information that it says is protected by executive privilege. The White House's records management office has been responsible for reviewing Bolton's book and providing feedback. The New York Times reported last month that Bolton, in his unpublished manuscript, alleges that Trump directed him to help with his pressure campaign to get damaging information on Democrats from Ukraine.

Bolton's lawyers have not denied the substance of the New York Times reports but have condemned the leaks behind it.As the review process plays out, the President has repeatedly brought up the book with his staff, the two people told the Post, and has said he views Bolton as"a traitor" for writing it.In his first public remarks since the impeachment inquiry, Bolton issued a rebuke against White House"censorship" of his manuscript."I hope it's not suppressed," Bolton said during an event at Duke University earlier this week. "I say things in the manuscript about what he (Trump) said to me," he added."I hope they become public someday."CNN's Vivian Salama and Kylie Atwood contributed to this report. Read more: CNN
It is starting to look like a “must read” Another disgruntled employee want's a payday and the left who hated him love him cause they need the dirt What is trump afraid The book will reveal? Trump is a traitor. Their was a time he would have been imprisoned for even having a relationship with communists. Now we have a communist for president.
Bolton is a Traitor and a WarCriminal Come on Donny boy, what are you afraid of? Just keep the economy going buddy. Traitors to him no to our country. Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the Trump administration say that the contents of this book were fake and just made up etc? If that’s the case, how can made up stories be classified?
Washington Post: Mulvaney says GOP has been inconsistent on deficit concerns under TrumpActing White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Wednesday that the Republican Party views federal deficits as 'the worst thing' when Democrats are in power but are 'a lot less interested' when their own party is in the White House, The Washington Post reported. As a republican. I disagree. I still care. And am not impressed but I also notice things like Nancy refusing to even submit a budget. So I cut trump a break. Trump let Mick out of his cage? Haven’t seen or heard from him since famous quid quo pro Jump boy jump, speak boy speak !!!🐕🐕🐕
I really believe the Washington Post and CNN not . Have John Bolton arrested and charged in that case. POTUS does not issue empty threats, does he? Curious..If Trump denies Russian interference in the 2020 election as he appears to be getting rid of anyone who is perceived to be a threat to him and Russian aggression isn't that an act of treason on his part If so then why isn't some real patriot doing Trump in Like a JFK
Good call Mr President When crooks fall out! we know why Trump wants to block his release of the book. Because it shows more evidence of Trumps crimes. It has nothing to do with National Security. It's personal security that truck don't want it out. Trump is corrupt and he has been found guilty by most of the people
‘Classified’ is code for, ‘it makes me sound like the imbecile I am’. Are we all getting ready to burn books for trump? The childish president is again showing his being scared the truth will come out about him. Here we go again! What is Trump afraid of, the truth
Washington Post: Mick Mulvaney says US is 'desperate' for legal immigrantsActing White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said at a private event that the US is 'desperate' for more legal immigrants to help grow the economy, according to audio of his comments obtained by The Washington Post. they don't have any reason to come here for the voter base just, dumb them down to their level. Legal not cheaters. Just get rid of borders alltogether, borders are racist
Still trying to cover up the truth! FakePresident, PunkAssBitch, OrangeBastardInCharge! Well, if everything in the book is fake news, why would it matter?! How could made up stories be classified?! Oh. Wait. Nevermind. Dictators fear the truth and veil the truth with words like 'Classified', 'National Security' and 'Traitor'. Don't buy it America. The Wolf is in the House!
The commander of thieves and lying mouth Donald conman crook court certified fraudster racist bigot Trump are been daily exposed as the most morally bankrupt government in USA history, with support from fake pastors, evangelist for hell fire and many people with no integrity Good! Of course he should, any normal person would check it out!
Fake news Dictatorship in full action. Two sources, if they work for Trump, they aren’t credible. Decent people wouldn’t associate themselves with this guy or his Administration. Underground the book to journalists. No money to Bolton (gutless weasel) and all the truth told.
Washington Post: US officials told Sanders that Russia is trying to help his campaignUS officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is trying to help his presidential campaign as part of their efforts to meddle with the Democratic primary contest, people familiar with the matter told The Washington Post. Someone needs to explain to Bernard that Russia isn’t helping his campaign because they LIKE him or want him to be president. They are working to make him the Democratic nominee because they KNOW he can’t beat the *impeached one. This should give all of his supporters pause, too. BernieIsARussianAsset Blue vs Red. Divide & conquer. Allstate(s) Mayhem.
CNN SUCKS! the only traitor I see is the orange man himself, Donald J Trump I think you have some seriously butt hurt rogues within the administration leaking things out, and possibly lying or embellishing what is leaked...and the news toning it however they want to. The only Traitor is our president who gladly turns a blind eye and allows Russia to interfere in our elections! Trump is a National security threat!
I recall another man who didn't like certain books printed and destroyed certain others. He ended up killing quite a few millions of people too. Thankfully we seem to learn nothing from history. America is truly Great. Let's keep it as such. The truth really hurts DuPont don. No it’s not. He doesn’t work for you trumpy. Just because you cant spell and could never possibly know how to write won’t make you prevent someone else from writing and Spilling the BEANS! Cluck cluck cluck!🇺🇸🐔🐔🐔
Honestly, I don’t give a sht about either one of these horrible humans.
