Per the publisher, Bolton's book, "The Room Where It Happened," not only covers "chaos in the White House," but also "assessments of major players, the president's inconsistent, scattershot decision-making process, and his dealings with allies and enemies alike."

The revelations are likely to reverberate on Capitol Hill, where Democrats have warned that Trump's conduct toward Ukraine was far from isolated and that he presents an existential threat to the country if allowed to remain in office. House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff declined to comment, but others involved in the impeachment inquiry were livid that Bolton delayed revealing potentially pertinent evidence until months after it would have bolstered their case.

"At the time the country needed him most, and history will reflect, he chose to sell books," said Rep. Mike Quigley, a member of the House Intelligence Committee. "It wasn't a question in his mind of whether or not he should talk about it. It's whether or not he should profit from talking about it. Not exactly 'Profiles in Courage.'"
