John Bolton to Reveal New Trump Misconduct in New Book
President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, John Bolton, has a new book, “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” coming out June 23, which is reportedly full of Trump’s misconduct in the Oval Office.
According to a source familiar with the book, Bolton has direct quotes by Trump and senior officials because he was a prolific note-taker in high-level meetings, filling yellow legal pad after yellow legal pad with notes, reports Axios.
Bolton will reportedly go beyond Trump’s scandal with the Ukraine, and recall more “Trump misconduct with other countries.”
The White House tried to stop the publishing of Bolton’s book, noted the New York Times.
The book’s publisher Simon & Schuster also described the book in a press release:
What Bolton saw astonished him: a president for whom getting reelected was the only thing that mattered, even if it meant endangering or weakening the nation. “I am hard-pressed to identify any significant Trump decision during my tenure that wasn’t driven by reelection calculations,” he writes. In fact, he argues that the House committed impeachment malpractice by keeping their prosecution focused narrowly on Ukraine when Trump’s Ukraine-like transgressions existed across the full range of his foreign policy—and Bolton documents exactly what those were, and attempts by him and others in the Administration to raise alarms about them.
