John Bolton’s memoir “The Room Where It Happened” adds pressure on the Senate Impeachment trial.
After the New York Times broke the story about the content of John Bolton’s manuscript that can potentially hurt Donald Trump in the impeachment trial, the Amazon post appeared online revealing the cover of his forthcoming memoir. The title is channeling Hamilton and it reads, ‘The Room Where It Happened’.
It is still unclear how the content of the book submitted to the National Security Council’s Records Management Division at the White House ended up in the public domain.
A lawyer for Bolton, Charles Cooper, issued a statement on Sunday evening stating: “It is clear, regrettably, from The New York Times article published today that the prepublication review process has been corrupted and that information has been disclosed by persons other than those properly involved in reviewing the manuscript.”
As the NYT reports, the revelation in the book directly contradicts the White House’s insistence that the president did not threaten to withdraw the military aid to Ukraine on the condition of opening an investigation into Bidens.
Bolton’s memoir ‘The Room Where It Happened’ is scheduled to be released on March 17, 2020. It is being published by Simon & Schuster.
