The fate of the scandalous book that outraged the White House has been determined

Senior judge of the US district court for the District of Columbia, Royce Lambert, ruled that the book by former us national security adviser John Bolton, which caused outrage from the White House, can be published. This is reported by ABC News.





The court will not rule on the seizure and destruction of Bolton's memoirs across the country. According to Lambert, the US government failed to determine that a court order banning the publication of the controversial book would prevent irreparable damage.

However, a federal judge noted that Bolton could later face administrative and possibly criminal liability, as it puts US national security at risk. “If he is right and the book does not contain classified information, he retains the right to receive a percentage of the profits from the book's sales; but if he is wrong, he may lose his profit from the transaction and face criminal liability,” Lambert said.

As noted by ABC News, this is only an interim victory for Bolton, as authorities continue to investigate the case of a possible violation of the terms of the non-disclosure agreement.





President Donald Trump, meanwhile, said that Bolton in his book released secret information “in huge quantities.” “He must pay a very heavy price for this,” the head of state wrote on Twitter.

The memoir, in particular, describes the details of trump's talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the White house's policy towards Ukraine and the alleged request of the American President to Chinese President XI Jinping to help him get re-elected this year. Author John Bolton, a former national security adviser to the President, was fired from US administration in September 2019 — when trump said that he and many members of his team did not agree with many of the politician's proposals.
