The president specifically insisted on helping Bolton’s book, “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memorial”, which is not expected to be published before the November election, two people told the Post.
The White House records management office was responsible for reviewing Bolton’s book and feedback.
According to the Times, Bolton also claims that Trump did not want to withdraw military aid to Ukraine until officials fulfilled the request. Bolton’s attorneys have not denied the substance of the New York Times reports, but have condemned the flaws behind it.
As the review process unfolds, the President has repeatedly raised the book with his staff, the two people told the Post, and said he sees Bolton as “a traitor” for writing it.
In his first public remarks after the impeachment investigation, Bolton reprimanded the White House’s “censorship” of his manuscript.
