The administration of US President Donald Trump on Tuesday filed a lawsuit to prevent former National Security Adviser John Bolton from publishing a book in which he is expected to paint a very grim picture of the Republican president and how he is governed.

The lawsuit was filed by the Justice Department before a federal court in Washington, in which it demanded that the book be banned.

The claim to prevent publication came on the grounds that Bolton did not obtain approval for the entire text, which would make his authorship “in clear violation of the agreements he had signed as a condition of his employment and access to highly classified information.”

Bolton’s book, “The Place Where It Happened: White House Memoirs,” is scheduled to be published on June 23.
