The lawsuit alleges that the manuscript of Bolton is “full of classified information” and alleged that Bolton pulled out a verification process of the White House for the book.
The ministry of Justice has requested that a federal court ordered Bolton to “load or request” that his publisher will further delay the publication of the book in order to enable the completion of the review process of the national security and to “collect and eliminate” the copies existing in a manner acceptable to the government. The ministry of Justice will also ask a federal court to grant him the rights to all of the income that Bolton wins of the publication of the book.
The lawyer of Bolton, Charles Cooper, said that the efforts of the administration to block the publication are ” an attempt was made transparent using national security as a pretext to censor Mr. Bolton, in violation of his constitutional rights to express themselves on issues of the highest importance to the public.” Cooper said that Bolton has worked for months with specialists from the classification to prevent publication of the material classified.

“I find it hard to identify any important decision of Trump during my tenure that has not been motivated by calculations of re-election,” writes Bolton in the book, according to the publisher.
On Monday, Trump told reporters that Bolton would be a “very serious criminal problem” if he published the memoirs.
The book was to be published in march, but its release date has been delayed on two occasions. The book should now be published later this month.
In a press release issued Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union said the trial was ” doomed to fail “.
Ben Wizner, director of the project of speech, technology and privacy of the organization, has stated that the supreme Court had rejected it a half-century, the efforts of the Nixon administration to block the release of documents from the Pentagon, and said that it was well established that restrictions in advance of publication are unconstitutional.
“As usual, the threats of the government have nothing to do with the protection of national security, and everything to do with the avoidance of scandal and embarrassment,” said Wizner.
