Trump's claim that Bolton can publish his book when he leaves the White House doesn't support his claim that Bolton's conversations and contacts with him rise to the level of being classified.

Put even more clearly: if the material becomes fit to publish once Trump leaves office, by definition it's not classified. Classifications survive presidential turnover. It's obvious, therefore, that the restriction until Trump leaves office is purely political.
