NEW YORK (AP) — John Bolton’s memoir officially comes out Tuesday after surviving a security review and a legal challenge from the Justice Department.

But over the weekend, it turned up in ways even his publisher is hoping to prevent.

A PDF of “The Room Where It Happened” has turned up on the internet, offering a free, pirated edition of the former national security adviser’s scathing takedown of President Donald Trump.

Publisher Simon & Schuster pledged to have the PDF taken down.

Trump has alleged that the book contains classified material that never should have been released.
