Judge de­nies Trump’s re­quest to block Bolton’s mem­oir

Fiji Sun - - WORLD NEWS -

Wash­ing­ton: A fed­eral judge on Satur­day de­nied the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion’s re­quest to block the pub­li­ca­tion of for­mer na­tional se­cu­rity ad­viser John Bolton’s mem­oir.

“While Bolton’s uni­lat­eral con­duct raises grave na­tional se­cu­rity con­cerns, the gov­ern­ment has not es­tab­lished that an in­junc­tion is an ap­pro­pri­ate rem­edy,” Royce Lam­berth, district judge for the District of Columbia, said in a me­moran­dum or­der.

The or­der came days be­fore the re­lease of Bolton’s book, “The Room Where It Hap­pened,” on Tues­day, which, ac­cord­ing to Lam­berth, “has been printed, bound, and shipped across the coun­try”.
