WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump has said his former national security adviser John Bolton could face a “criminal problem” if he does not halt plans to publish a new book describing the taking of scattered decision of a president who he says focuses only on getting re-elected.
Trump says Attorney General William Barr will decide whether Bolton will be charged, but hints the issue could end up in court. Trump says Bolton has not completed a pre-publication review process to ensure that classified material is not published in the book.
Bolton’s attorney, Chuck Cooper, says his client worked hard for months with classification specialists from the National Security Council to make changes.
