Judge Royce Lamberth denied the request for the former national security adviser's book to be canned in a ruling Saturday
'The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir' will be sold and distributed to customers from June 23 as planned
Lamberth, a Reagan appointee, said 'the damage is done' after 200,000 copies have already been circulated around the US so a ban would be futile
Donald Trump tweeted in outrage at the decision branding Bolton a 'despicable man' who broke the law and warning he must pay a 'very big price'
The federal judge had heard arguments Friday over Zoom
On Tuesday, the Trump administration sued Bolton in order to postpone the book's release and it was leaked to the media the next day
It contains a number of damaging claims about Trump, including that he asked China for help with his re-election bid
