John Bolton says Trump might ‘censor’ his book, says there’s much more in it than just Ukraine

John Bolton came out publicly to tease his book and make sure that everyone bought a copy. Here’s what he said about the possible censorship of his book from the White House:

Former national security adviser John Bolton decried potential White House “censorship” of his upcoming book in a public discussion on Monday.

Bolton spoke at Duke University in his first appearance since the Senate voted not to hear testimony from him during President Trump’s impeachment trial. He called the parts of his memoir dealing with Ukraine controversy that sparked impeachment “the sprinkles on an ice cream sundae,” The New York Times and CNN reported.

“For all the focus on Ukraine and impeachment trial: to me there are portions of the manuscript that deal with Ukraine — I view that as the sprinkles on an ice cream sundae, in terms of the book,” he reportedly said. “This is an effort to write history. I did the best I can … We’ll see what happens with the censorship.”

His book is under review from the NSC, but parts of it leaked, and now some are wondering if the process will be politicized in order to protect Trump. And that would be pretty stupid, I think, since Bolton could very easily speak out if he thought he was being censored unfairly.

Meanwhile, nearly everyone is crapping on him. Those on the right are shaming him for betraying Trump and those on the left are angry that he won’t betray him enough!

At this point I wouldn’t be shocked to find out his own bountiful mustache has turned on him…
