Bolton submitted the book for security review in January and has pushed back the publication date several times since. The book is being touted as a chance to take readers behind the scenes of the Donald Trump White House. Last November, prior to the publication of an anonymous Trump administration official's book, "A Warning", the Department of Justice requested the publisher, Hachette, reveal the identity of the author and halt the publication of the book.
Former national security adviser John Bolton alleges in his upcoming book that President Trump asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to increase agricultural purchases from the U.S.in order to improve his electoral prospects in farm states, the New York Times and Washington Post report, citing advance copies of the book.
In a statement sent to TheWrap, a spokesperson for Simon & Schuster said the lawsuit was "nothing more than the latest in a long running series of efforts by the Administration to quash publication of a book it deems unflattering to the President".
Bolton, in the book's epilogue, also accuses Trump of seizing Bolton's advisors' documents, obstructing his Twitter account and "making outright threats of censorship", according to Axios.

Eight patients remain on home isolation, and 31 of the county's 40 cases have recovered and are no longer being monitored. Nineteen cases have been reported among detainees at the facility, according to the state Department of Health.
The memoir is expected to claim that Trump's "transgressions" went well beyond the Ukraine saga that led to his impeachment and alleged that "reelection calculations" drove the president's major decisions, according to a press release for the book. "And I would think that he would have criminal problems, I would hope so".
A description by the publisher of what the mustachioed, hard-driving former top aide to Trump has written leaves little doubt why the president, with Attorney General Bill Barr at his side, said on Tuesday of Bolton "maybe he's not telling the truth".
The government says Bolton is in breach of basic secrecy rules after refusing to wait for the National Security Council to go through the text, as required.
"Ambassador Bolton has worked in full cooperation with the NSC in its pre-publication review to address its concerns and Simon & Schuster fully supports his First Amendment right to tell the story of his time in the White House to the American public", the spokesperson, Adam Rothberg, also said. "The final, published version of this book reflects those changes".
