The Trump administration last week had sought to prevent the book from being widely distributed on the grounds that it contained classified information, but a judge denied the request on Saturday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin doubted that Israel could attack Iran, according to former U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton. Bob Beatty, a political science professor at Washburn University in Topeka, recollects that Donald Regan, a White House chief of staff from 1985 to 1987 "even said that President Ronald Reagan was influenced by an astrologer that his wife, Nancy, consulted to help her with choosing dates to schedule events".
In an interview with CNN, Mr Mulvaney, who officially took up his position as envoy here last month, was responding to a question name-checking various former administration officials who have queried President Trump's fitness for the job.
"BIG COURT WIN against Bolton", Trump wrote on Twitter. But if he does have any integrity, he should have come out during impeachment and said it. Is that ignorance or taunting?
According to the professor, while Trump's ad hoc style of making foreign and domestic policy, as detailed in the book, "reinforces Democrats' panic" it at the same time reinvigorates "Trump supporters' confidence in the president that he is avoiding old decision-making paradigms".
"Substantively, the "end of war" idea had no rationale except that it sounded good", Bolton wrote, adding that "with the possibility nothing much else would emerge in Singapore, we risked legitimizing Kim Jong Un" by suggesting that Pyongyang was no longer unsafe.
Building on the administration's claim that Bolton has included classified information in his tome, which was released on Tuesday, Pompeo compared him to Edward Snowden - the former CIA contractor who leaked classified information from the National Security Agency.
"Hundreds of thousands of copies of John Bolton's "The Room Where it Happened" have already been distributed around the country and the world".
Both Trump and Seoul have contested the details in the memoir.
Mr. Bolton was asked about the firing of Geoffrey Berman, the USA attorney for the Southern District of NY whose office was investigating some of the president's associates.
"I will consider every conversation with me as president highly classified". That's called criminal liability.
Trump's threats aren't empty, since "the federal court found Bolton published his book in violation of federal law that protects national security", elaborates Robert Barns, a USA constitutional, civil trial and criminal tax lawyer.
