The White House on Wednesday formally threatened former national security adviser John Bolton to prevent him from publishing his tell-all book, „The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir.“

The news was first reported by CNN and confirmed by Axios.

Details about the threat were not immediately available.

This move comes hours after President Donald Trump lashed out at Bolton in a flurry of tweets. He deemed the memoir „nasty & untrue“ and alleged that „we would be in World War Six by now,“ if he had paid heed to Bolton’s advice.

The New York Times on Sunday reported that Bolton’s book, slated for release in March, contradicts the foundation of Trump’s defense against impeachment because it says that the president categorically linked Ukraine’s military aid to requests for investigations into political rivals.

Republicans are mulling over whether to call Bolton to testify in the Senate impeachment trial.

The White House told CNN it had no comment, while Bolton and Simon and Schuster, the book’s publisher, did not respond to requests for comment.
