The Justice Department is now seeking an emergency court order to stop the release of John Bolton’s memoir, The Room Where It Happened.
The details of the book have already surfaced in a variety of media outlets and an excerpt in The Wall Street Journal, but the DOJ filed a motion on Wednesday for a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction.
The DOJ filed the motion in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia, and it is requesting a hearing for Friday. It claims that the book contains classified information. The Room Where It Happened is due to be released on Tuesday, and he already sat down for an interview with ABC News’ Martha Raddatz.
