Trump sues to block Bolton book

I bought my copy at Amazon.com. I want it on the [re]scheduled release date, June 23. No more delays!

Trump’s legal gang is suing the publisher to halt release. Do you see the pattern? When something unflattering to Trump is published, he sues.

You can read about it here: Trump administration sues to delay release of Bolton book.

Heather Cox Richardson (Letters from an American) opines this morning:

It was a weird lawsuit. It claims Bolton is “compromising national security by publishing a book containing classified information,” but the government did not try to get a temporary restraining order, and it did not sue the book’s publisher: it went after Bolton alone, charging him with violating a non-disclosure agreement and demanding he hand over any money he makes from the book. Law professor Rick Hasen speculated on Twitter that the lawsuit “may be no more than a complaint written for an audience of one, more about looking tough against Bolton and claiming he’s violating the law than about getting actual court relief.”

Trump Considers Suing His Niece Over Her Tell-All Book, Saying She Signed an NDA.. The president has long favored using legal threats to stop people from writing bad books about him. Going after his own family may be next.

Do you suppose that Trump’ thinks conversations with his own family are classified?
