John Bolton's attorney releases statement regarding NSC letter

Later Wednesday, Bolton's attorney Charles Cooper released a follow-up letter that he sent to the National Security Council about the manuscript.
"As you are no doubt aware, the House Managers in the Senate impeachment trial have made clear their intention to seek Ambassador Bolton's testimony at trial, and although no one yet knows whether the Senate will subpoena him to testify, he is preparing for that possibility," Cooper wrote in a Friday email to the official at the National Security Council.
"If he is called to testify, it seems certain that he will be asked questions that will elicit much of the information contained in the chapter of his manuscript dealing with his involvement in matters relating to Ukraine. We do not believe that any of that information could reasonably be considered classified, but given that Ambassador Bolton could be called to testify as early as next week, it is imperative that we have the results of your review of that chapter as soon as possible."
In a statement accompanying the letter, Cooper added that he had "received no response whatever to my urgent request for the NSC's immediate guidance as to any concerns it may have with respect to the chapter of the manuscript dealing with Ambassador Bolton's involvement in matters relating to Ukraine."
I’m not surprised that the White House NSC hasn’t responded yet. In fact I wouldn’t at all be surprised if the NSC was instructed, in the aftermath of this leak, to halt all work on Bolton’s book until after the impeachment trial is over, if not longer. If I were president, that’s what I would have done.
