(NewsReady.com) – Former National Security Adviser (NSA) John Bolton spent 17 months working for President Donald Trump. He was eventually fired by the commander-in-chief after his pro-war policies became a problem. Earlier this summer, the disgraced official released a memoir detailing his time in the West Wing over the president’s objections that it might contain classified information — now that decision may be coming back to bite him.
On September 15, the New York Times reported the DOJ has allegedly opened an investigation into John Bolton. The top law enforcement department in the country is looking into whether or not the former NSA’s book, “The Room Where It Happened,” unlawfully disclosed classified information.

The Wall Street Journal is also reporting that federal prosecutors have issued grand jury subpoenas to Bolton’s literary agent and publisher over allegations they mishandled classified information.
President Trump’s administration has made it clear leakers will face punishment if found guilty. It looks like the former NSA may find that out the hard way.
