The Bill Barr Department of Injustice has filed a civil action against John Bolton to prevent him from publishing his upcoming book exposing the incompetence of the Trump administration. This is not shocking at all. The White House slow-walked the review and approval of the book for months.

So now their only option is straight up revenge and retaliation towards Bolton.
