Bolton's book, titled "In the Room Where it Happened", is scheduled for publication next week but has been the focus of a months-long legal battle between the White House and the former national security adviser.

The Trump administration filed a lawsuit seeking to prevent publication of former national security advisor John Bolton's book.

"A White House Memoir", is set to be published on June 23.

The complaint argues that Bolton submitted his book, "The Room Where It Happened", for publication without first getting permission from the government through the prepublication review process and that the book contains classified information. "And I would think that he would have criminal problems", Trump said.

"Within two months of his departure from government service, Defendant had negotiated a book deal allegedly worth about $2 million and had drafted a 500-plus page manuscript rife with classified information, which he proposed to release to the world", the lawsuit alleges.

"In the book, Mary Trump is not only expected to discuss hard internal family dynamics and offer revelations about a younger Donald Trump; she is also expected to out herself as a primary source behind a Pulitzer-winning New York Times investigation into her uncle's taxes", the report promised.

The book, entitled The Room Where It Happened, is due to be released on 23 June.

In February, President Trump was impeached for withholding military aid to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into starting a corruption investigation into Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Alphonso David, the group's president, said , "No one should be denied a job or fired simply because of who they are or whom they love".


Bolton was ousted from his role as national security adviser last September, when the president tweeted that he had fired Bolton, claiming he "disagreed strongly" with his suggestions on a range of issues.

Mr Trump said in a statement on Wednesday that the Uighur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020 holds "accountable perpetrators of human rights violations and abuses".

The New York Post reports that Mr Trump had said Monday that every conversation he has as president is classified - a declaration critics questioned - and threatened criminal charges against Bolton.

"Yet when Mr. Bolton asked when he would receive the letter confirming the book was cleared, Ms. Knight cryptically replied that her "interaction" with unnamed others in the White House about the book had "been very delicate" and that there were 'some internal process considerations to work through, '" Cooper wrote.
