Cohn Calls Woodward Book 'Inaccurate' But Does Not Detail Specifics

11 Septembre 2018

Watergate investigative reporter Bob Woodward's new book "Fear: Trump in the White House" details a chaotic West Wing in which some former staffers actively deceive and undermine Trump's orders - because they feared he would endanger the country.

Woodward, in an interview that aired Tuesday on The New York Times' "The Daily" podcast, continued to reject President Donald Trump's claims that Fear: Trump in the White House is full of "lies and phony sources".

Simon & Schuster, the publishing company behind Bob Woodard's upcoming book, is reportedly printing one million copies of the White House tell-all to keep up with the "extraordinary demand".

But despite Woodward remaining steadfast in his defense of the book, others have criticized him for it. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges told RT that whether the claims in the book are true or not, they're still "distracting from real issues".

Trump also insisted that the White House is a "smooth running machine".

Trump attacked the book again on Monday, writing in a tweet that it was a "joke". "We don't take it like others - like China", Trump is quoted as saying in the book, during the July 19 situation room meeting.

Woodward and Bernstein's reporting led to a Congressional investigation that would have most likely ended with Nixon's impeachment.

"No, and you knock", Woodward said.

As Staff Secretary, I was responsible for managing the flow of documents to and from the Oval Office and ensuring that anything the President was asked to sign had been properly vetted.

"This is very low-level person who will throw their name on an op-ed, and basically subvert the vote of the American people who elected my father to do this job", Trump Jr. said, calling the column "pretty disgusting" and "sad".

Trump Jr. also told ABC that he was not anxious about special counsel Robert Mueller's sweeping probe into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Chris Christie (R) is accusing former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon of being a "co-author" of the tell-all White House book by veteran journalist Bob Woodward. "Even more than that, what do we get from protecting Taiwan, say?"

I knew that people in office in these sensitive positions were not going to talk on the record. He depicts national security aides rattled by the president's contempt for the global infrastructure in security and trade that had been built since World War II.

Woodward, asked on Monday on NBC's "Today" show about their denials, said, "They are not telling the truth".

In the piece, an unnamed senior administration official says people within the White House are actively "thwarting Mr. Trump's more misguided impulses". "It's critical: Who is this person and why are they masking themselves in this way?"
