The United States District Court for the District of Columbia today vindicated the Government’s claims against former National Security Adviser John Bolton， ruling that “Bolton likely jeopardized national security by disclosing classified information in violation of his nondisclosure agreement obligations.” The court rightly chastised Bolton for treating as “intolerable” a review process for his book that the court believed was “reasonable.” As the court explained， “Bolton has gambled with the national security of the United States，” hoping to secure profits by violating his nondisclosure agreements. But Bolton bet wrong， and the downside of his losing bet is that he “stands to lose his profits from the book deal， exposes himself to criminal liability， and imperils national security.”
美国哥伦比亚特区地方法院今天证明了政府对前国家安全顾问约翰-博尔顿的指控是正确的，裁定”博尔顿违反其保密协议义务，披露机密信息，很可能危及国家安全”。 法院公正地谴责了博尔顿，因为他把法院认为是”合理的 “对他的书的审查程序当作 “不能容忍的” 。正如法院解释的那样，”博尔顿用美国的国家安全进行了赌博”，希望通过违反他的保密协议来确保他的收益。 但博尔顿赌错了，他赌输了的坏处是 “将失去他将出版的那本书交易所得的收益，使自己面临刑事责任，并危及国家安全”。
The court denied the Government’s request for an injunction solely because Bolton’s wrongful conduct—carried out in secret—had already ensured that the book was so widely disseminated that the court believed it could no longer grant an effective remedy.
The Government intends to hold Bolton to the further requirements of his agreements and to ensure that he receives no profits from his shameful decision to place his desire for money and attention ahead of his obligations to protect national security.
