Woodward book goes on sale as ex-Trump aides push back

The book's damning picture was reinforced last week with the publication of a New York Times op-ed written by an anonymous senior Trump administration official who portrayed fellow aides struggling to limit the potentially disastrous consequences of some of the president's rash decisions.

"Hide in the bushes", Colbert quipped.

"No, and you knock", Woodward said. "I think that's a shame". "I'll just take the paper off his desk".

Cohn explained that that could be seriously harmful to the US's fiscal and economic situation, but Trump did not appear to understand, the book says. He said, 'Come on in, ' and I stayed for a couple of hours. "And in the end I know what I've done, and I'm not anxious about that at all, because you know, I've done nothing that anyone else wouldn't do in that position, in my opinion".

When Colbert asked if Woodward ever told sources he was going to write a story without the source's perspective, Woodward said no.

"A source tells us he [Trump] shouted out 'Bring back Hope Hicks!' Apparently, he preferred her response to ["Fire and Fury" author] Michael Wolff". "People don't want to go into coal mines and get black lung".

He realized then - he was right - that once you have a special counsel with this unlimited authority, essentially unlimited time, going after you, they're going to look under every rock.

And then the bombshell New York Times anonymous an op-ed titled "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration" created a storm another the Trump administration. "Documents and notes make it authentic".

Though claiming that the cabal had "many" members, he did not specify in which of the 300-odd agencies of the government they worked or whether any members had jobs in the West Wing of the White House, the State Department, the CIA, or the Department of Justice.

"Just run the presses-print money", Trump said, according to Woodward.

But according to Woodward, Cohn's message did not seem to connect. Both Mattis and Chief of Staff John Kelly have denied making any disparaging comments about the president. I think there's somebody who drafted it.

Woodward also said he wasn't lying, despite the president's accusations. But they were willing to help me in this process. I've done the work.

That claim aside, people inside the West Wing say the identity of the writer remains a topic of heated discussion as reports emerged that a list of possible authors had been drawn up.

Now an associate editor at the Washington Post, Woodward is still best known for the fact that beginning in 1972 he and fellow journalist Carl Bernstein published a series of articles revealing salient details about the Watergate scandal and President Richard Nixon's role therein. But the book doesn't say how Pence reacted to that revelation.
