John Bolton is already talking to literary agents about writing a book about his time as President Donald Trump's national security adviser less than a week after his contentious departure from the White House.

Two sources described as having knowledge of the situation told The Daily Beast that Bolton wants to have his say, and there are agents ready to make that happen.

"He has a lot to dish," one of the sources said.

Bolton would not comment on his literary plans when reached by The Daily Beast on Monday afternoon, and even if he had signed a nondisclosure agreement, he would not be the first to publish a tell-all book after leaving Trump's administration.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, who Trump brought in after she starred in his "Apprentice" reality program, slammed the president as a racist in her book, "Unhinged," and revealed she had recorded audio of him while in the White House.

Trump's attorney, Charles Harder, threatened publisher Simon & Schuster for inducing Manigault Newman to breach her NDA, but the threat fell through.

It is not clear if Bolton signed an NDA, but he most likely did, considering his high rank in the administration, reports The Daily Beast.

Bolton is not expected to remember his days under Trump kindly, considering their frequent arguments on policy and how he was removed from office. After serving as President George W. Bush's ambassador to the U.N., he wrote a book The Economist's reviewer said sounded like the words of a "domineering bully" and that had a "bad word" for almost all who stood up to him.

Bush, however, did not slam Bolton when he was on his way out the door.

Trump posted on Twitter he informed Bolton the night before that his services were no longer needed, but Bolton was quick to post on Twitter and to send several TV reporters messages he had already quit, so Trump could not have fired him.
