NEW YORK (Associated Press) — The Associated Press has learned that former national security adviser John Bolton has a book deal.
Bolton departed in September because of numerous foreign policy disagreements with President Donald Trump – on Iran, North Korea and more.
According to three publishing officials with knowledge of negotiations, he reached a deal over the past few weeks with Simon & Schuster. The officials weren’t authorized to discuss the deal publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Two say the deal is worth about $2 million. Bolton was represented by the Javelin literary agency, whose clients include former FBI Director James Comey and the anonymous Trump administration official whose book, “A Warning,” comes out Nov. 19.
