They ARE apparently toooooo late….
Excerpts are already in the media outlets….
Like other things that will be from Trump in the next 6 months or so?
A Biden win and take over of the Justice Department will cancel just about ALL Barr efforts to protect Trump in the courts…
The move came after the administration filed a civil suit against Bolton on Tuesday, targeting the proceeds of the book and asking a court to order him to delay its scheduled June 23 release. Less than 24 hours later, the Wall Street Journal published an excerpt of the memoir, and lengthy accounts were published by other news organizations.
Wednesday’s move sought to formally enjoin Bolton from allowing his book to be published, a legal strategy experts said was unlikely to succeed, particularly given that the book has already been printed and shipped to warehouses and copies distributed to the media for review.
In a statement, Bolton’s publisher called the latest move by the Trump administration “a frivolous, politically motivated exercise in futility. Hundreds of thousands of copies of John Bolton’s ‘The Room Where It Happened’ have already been distributed around the country and the world. The injunction as requested by the government would accomplish nothing.’’
Still, the legal show of force could satisfy President Trump, who urged aides Wednesday to seek to block the publication of the book, despite warnings that his legal case would not be strong, according to people familiar with his remarks, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations.
Even if the legal maneuvering has failed to stop the book’s contents from reaching the public, experts said Tuesday’s lawsuit could still succeed in its central purpose — forcing Bolton to turn over proceeds from the book to the government.
Bolton also could face more serious consequences. The Justice Department is now investigating to see whether any laws regarding the handling of classified information were broken in the course of Bolton writing the book, according to people familiar with the matter.
A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment. Bolton has denied the book contains government secrets.
On Monday, Trump, speaking at an event with Attorney General William P. Barr, told reporters that Bolton could face “criminal problems” if his book is released.
“I will consider every conversation with me as president highly classified,” the president said….
There have been ‘tell all ‘ out already about Trump….
His defeat in the fall election will generate multitudes of more ‘tell all’ books from around his admin ….
Donald Trump is just NOT smart enough to realize that in a large organizrion?
A LOT of people see underhanded stuff….

Bolton of course danced around and did NOT come forward during the impeachment trail….
He ducked when it counted….
