President of the United States Donald trump considers “highly inappropriate” that his former national security adviser John Bolton has written a book of memories about working with him and intends to publish it. About this American leader said during a speech to reporters in the White house.
“Maybe he’s not telling the truth, it is known that often not telling the truth,” trump was quoted by RIA Novosti. He also expressed hope that the competent bodies of the United States will draw Bolton to criminal liability, if he will continue to refuse to remove certain information from his book in accordance with the requirements of lawyers of the American government.
In turn, the US attorney General William Barr noted that the memoirs of former officials there is a special procedure to check the disclosure of classified information, which must go through before publication. Bolton, this process is not passed, said Barr, calling unprecedented the fact that the book will be published under the current President.
Recall, we are talking about the book “the Room where it happened: a memoir of the White house,” in which a former adviser criticized the foreign policy trump. Earlier, the White house said Bolton, that in the manuscript that is being prepared for publication, still has information that is regarded as secret. By 19 June, the author will be provided a redacted copy of his work. But Bolton insists that was removed from the memoirs of all the data that can be classified, and intends to publish the manuscript at the end of June, even if the authorities are against it.
