The Associated Press reports:
John Bolton’s memoir officially comes out Tuesday after surviving a security review and a legal challenge from the Justice Department. But over the weekend, it was available in ways even his publisher is hoping to prevent.
A PDF of “The Room Where It Happened” has turned up on the internet, offering a free, pirated edition of the former national security advisor’s scathing takedown of President Trump, who has alleged that the book contains classified material that never should have been released.
“We are working assiduously to take down these clearly illegal instances of copyright infringement,” Simon & Schuster spokesman Adam Rothberg said Sunday. “The Room Where It Happened” has been No. 1 for days on the Amazon.com bestseller list.
