Federal court approves the publication of Bolton’s book, despite the DOJ’s objections

At the same time, the judge admitted that the former presidential aide “jeopardized the national security of the United States.”

Federal Court in the District of Columbia dismissed a lawsuit filed by representatives of the U.S. Department of Justice to ban the publication of the book by John Bolton, former National Security Adviser to President Donald Trump.

The ruling, posted on Saturday, 20 June, states in the federal court database that the Government failed to establish that the injunction order would prevent irreparable damage. The DOJ lawsuit was dismissed, but the judge admitted that Bolton’s memoirs did “endanger U.S. national security.

The court also noted that after the publication of the former assistant to the American president, he may incur appropriate administrative and possibly criminal responsibility.

As it was reported earlier, the acting American president Donald Trump and the Ministry of Justice of the state demanded to suspend the publication of the Bolton’s book as they considered that the former presidential aide could reveal secret information inadvertently.
