Former National Security Adviser John Bolton is a "backstabber" with the claims he's making in his upcoming tell-all book about his time with President Donald Trump's administration, Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal attorney, said Wednesday.

"I don’t care if he says what he saw or he doesn’t," Giuliani said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "If they want to publish what he says about me, I’m sure that’s not classified. I’m happy to have him do it and I’m happy to respond to it because he’s a backstabber."

The Trump administration has sued to stop Bolton's book, "The Room Where it Happened," which is set to come out on June 23, on claims that he's releasing classified information in it. 

Bolton's memoir could raise new questions about Trump and Giuliani concerning the Ukraine scandal, along with examples of Trump's conduct in foreign affairs. 

Giuliani said Bolton never came to him about his concerns on Ukraine. 

"He never came to me and gave me those concerns," Giuliani said. "If he was concerned about that, if the man were a man rather than a backstabber, he would’ve talked to me…He’s selling out to sell a book. I don’t know what happened to him."

Show host Ed Henry reminded Giuliani that Bolton once referred to him as a "hand grenade," but Giuliani laughed, responding that "if he said I was a hand grenade, the guy was an atomic bomb" with his "ridiculous statements that he sometimes made that we all kept our mouths shut about, and his desire for war, which is kind of sick. He’s calling me a hand grenade?”
