Michael Wolff had 'largely unfettered access' to West Wing — White House reporter


The president and his staff insist they never offered Wolff the access he sought for his book.

"The factual inaccuracies in this book call into question the totality of the book", Lewandowski said.

Publisher Henry Holt & Co. originally planned a Jan. 9 release, but went for an earlier date after excerpts of Wolff's work ignited massive media attention. The book is clearly protected speech under the First Amendment.

Trump and his allies quickly hit back at Wolff and Bannon following the book's release.

I think he is intellectually incapable of being president of the United States.

Trump has lashed out at Bannon over a new book that quotes his former aide questioning the president's competence.

Limbaugh argued that Trump brought Bannon onto his campaign team in 2016 as part of a deal with the Mercers, who donated millions to his campaign.

Mr Wolff chose to sidestep broader questions about his credibility on Today, claiming that he had written "millions" of words in his career and had never received a correction.

"What I think is really mentally unstable is people that don't see the positive impact that this president is having on the country", she told "Fox & Friends".

The early excerpts have also caused a public rift with Mr Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon, over his comments in the book about Mr Trump and his family.

"Let me put a marker in the sand here: 100% of the people around him", Wolff said.

Sanders also called Wolf "a guy who made up a lot of stories to try and sell books". He said whether he "realized it was an interview or not, I don't know, but it was certainly not off the record". He was often confident, but he was just as often paralyzed, less a savant than a figure of sputtering and dangerous insecurities, whose instinctive response was to lash out and behave as if his gut, however confused, was in fact in some clear and forceful way telling him what to do.

Michael Wolff's inflammatory inside-the-White-House book Fire and Fury has been the talk of Washington, D.C. for days.

The White House tell-all vaulted immediately to the top of the best seller list on Amazon, with dozens of customers offering their reviews - and 90% giving it a five-star ranking.

They're "desperate attempts" to attack Trump, she said.

At the Barnes & Noble locations in Bethlehem and at the Lehigh Valley Mall in Whitehall, stock sold out within 15 minutes of the stores opening.

It already has cost him a key backer.

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, the controversial book on US President Donald Trump, gives a glimpse of his life the White House, according to the Guardian.

He said that, cumulatively, he had spent about three hours with the President during the campaign and in the White House.
