Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a statement on Thursday ahead of the June 23 publication of John Bolton’s explosive new book, calling the former national security adviser a “traitor who damaged America by violating his sacred trust with its people.”

Pompeo’s statement comes as the Trump administration is urgently trying to stop the publication of Bolton’s bombshell book, claiming that it still contains classified information that Bolton is publishing without permission.
