Pompeo Calls Bolton "a Traitor: as Trump Administration Scrambles to Halt Book Release

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday accused former national security adviser John Bolton of being a "traitor" in a forceful rebuke of Bolton's new book, CNN reports.

"I've not read the book, but from the excerpts I've seen published, John Bolton is spreading a number of lies, fully-spun half-truths, and outright falsehoods," Pompeo said in a statement. "It is both sad and dangerous that John Bolton's final public role is that of a traitor who damaged America by violating his sacred trust with its people."
"To our friends around the world: you know that President Trump's America is a force for good in the world," he continued.
Pompeo's comments come as the White House scrambles to halt the release of Bolton's new book, "In the Room Where it Happened," in which Bolton details a troubling and shocking series of allegations about his tenure as President Donald Trump's national security adviser. He alleges that Trump requested Chinese help to win the 2020 election, that the President argued Venezuela is part of the US, that he casually offered to intervene in the criminal justice system for foreign leaders and that Trump had no problem with China's concentration camps.
In the book, a copy of which has been obtained by CNN, Bolton also alleges that Pompeo had privately assailed Trump during negotiations with North Korea.
