US President Donald Trump said a federal judge in the DC District Court made a 'very good decision' to allow former National Security Adviser John Bolton to publish his book. Trump was speaking in Washington DC on Saturday.
«I think the judge was very smart and very indignant at what Bolton did. I think it was a great ruling. Obviously, the book was already out and leaked that everything out. But he leaked classified information. So he's got a big problem,» said Trump.
The judge criticised Bolton for proceeding with publication before he got an official approval from the White House.
The ruling came after Trump's administration tried to trying to block the release of Bolton's upcoming book «The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir» on the grounds it contains classified material.
