COURTS/JOHN BOLTON/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Well, we had a very good decision in the John Bolton book case. And the judge was very powerful in his statements on classified information and very powerful also on the fact that the country will get the money — any money he makes. So I hope a lot of books — well, I probably don’t hope that. But whatever he makes, he’s going to be giving back, in my opinion. Based on the ruling, he’s going to be giving back.
I think the judge was very smart and very indignant at what Bolton did. I think it was a great ruling. Obviously, the book was already out; it leaked and everything else. But he leaked classified information, so he’s got a big problem.”
