Trump’s Attack on Bolton Book Publication is a Threat to Whistleblowers Disclosures

Washington, D.C. – WEBWIRE

The President’s attempts to suppress former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s book is a case of “Constitutional vandalism,” whistleblower attorney Stephen M. Kohn said. Kohn, a partner at qui tam law firm Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto, published an article today in The National Law Review, entitled Constitutional Vandalism and the Bolton Book Controversy.
The Trump administration wants to stop the tell-all memoir from being publicly released next week, claiming certain information in the book should be withheld due to its classified nature. 
Earlier today, a federal judge appeared skeptical about the President’s efforts.
Kohn’s article carefully explains how the Trump administration complaint ignores critical First Amendment-mandated rules designed to prevent illegal suppression of speech. The article is highly critical of the legal theories the Justice Department is using to justify censoring Bolton’s book, “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir.” Kohn warned that if these legal arguments were accepted they “would radically expand the government’s censorship powers.” 
“Prepublication review is a critical avenue for whistleblowers to release information regarding government misconduct,” Kohn continued. “Trump’s lawsuit against Bolton seeks to undermine the strict due process requirements mandated under the prepublication review procedures. This is a threat to government accountability and the public’s right to know. The government lawsuit against John Bolton should be dismissed,” Kohn added.  
Kohn, Kohn, & Colapinto has successfully represented numerous National Security whistleblowers under the prepublication review procedures.
