John Bolton’s lawyer said Wednesday he hasn’t heard back from the National Security Council on his request that it review the Ukraine portion of his book quickly in case he’s called to testify in Trump’s trial.
Attorney Chuck Cooper released a Jan. 24 email that told the NSC, “Given that Ambassador Bolton could be called to testify as early as next week, it is imperative that we have the results of your review of that chapter as soon as possible.”
The NSC had notified Cooper on Jan. 23 that Bolton’s manuscript couldn’t be published in its current form because it contains “significant amounts of classified information.”
Cooper’s letter also said, “We do not believe that any of that information could reasonably be considered classified.”
In releasing his response to the NSC Wednesday, Cooper said, “I have received no response whatever to my urgent request for the NSC’s immediate guidance.”
