Stephen Colbert reveals he already has John Bolton’s book, mocks Bill Barr

Attorney General William Barr will not be happy if he happened to catch The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Tuesday night. Earlier in the day, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against former national security advisor John Bolton in an effort to stop the release of Bolton’s tell-all book The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir. Barr seemingly just became aware on Monday that the book has already been published and is set for release next week. The book is believed to contain potentially damaging stories about President Trump. Unfortunately, Colbert already has a copy. And since he learned of the lawsuit while shooting his monologue, Colbert decided to have some fun at Barr’s expense.
