Richmond Times-Dispatch - - REMEMBERIN­G -

For­mer na­tional se­cu­rity ad­viser John Bolton plans to move ahead with pub­li­ca­tion of his mem­oir about work­ing in the Trump White House de­spite a new warn­ing from the ad­min­is­tra­tion that it con­tains clas­si­fied ma­te­rial and needs to be fur­ther re­vised, his lawyer said.

The let­ter Wed­nes­day from a White House lawyer ar­rived just two weeks be­fore “The Room Where It Hap­pened: A White House Mem­oir” is set to go on sale and as Bolton is ne­go­ti­at­ing me­dia ap­pear­ances to pro­mote the book.

The let­ter said Bolton would be pro­vided with a redacted man­u­script by June 19, four days be­fore the book is to go on sale.

In re­sponse, Bolton’s lawyer, Charles Cooper, said he has scrupu­lously com­plied with na­tional se­cu­rity re­quire­ments and ex­pects his book will be avail­able to the pub­lic as planned on June 23.

The book’s pub­lisher, Si­mon & Schus­ter, has al­ready shipped copies to ware­houses around the coun­try in prepa­ra­tion.
