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

Share

It was not clear how aggressive White House efforts were to root out the op-ed writer, though a person close to the White House who was not authorized to speak publicly said officials had focused in on a few names.

The "hours of raging" reminded Rob Porter, then his staff secretary, of "Nixon's final days in office - praying, pounding the carpet, talking to pictures of past presidents on the walls".

The president is displeased with White House Deputy Chief of Staff Bill Shine in particular because Trump thinks he wasn't able to push back the claims made in the expose.

In a statement, Mr Kelly said: "The idea I ever called the president an idiot is not true, in fact it's exactly the opposite".

Bob Woodward's book Fear: Trump in the White House may not be in bookshops just yet, but with the book in high demand one million copies have been printed in advance.

In the normal practice of journalism, it's considered to be the job of a newspaper's own reporters, not anonymous government officials, to report on newsworthy political revelations, especially those with momentous implications. "These quotes were made up". Woodward is explaining that he did request a presidential interview, and never got it, for the book just sent to the printer.

"If that individual is in meetings where national security is being discussed, or other important topics, and they are attempting to undermine the executive branch, that would certainly be problematic and something that the Department of Justice should look into", Sanders said in her first briefing since the editorial was published last week.

"That will put 1 million books in print before we've even gone on sale", Simon & Schuster told CNN on Monday, saying it had ordered multiple reprints to meet "extraordinary demand". Cohn announced his attention to leave the White House in March 2018, on April 2, Cohn was replaced by Larry Kudlow. General Mattis, General Kelly said it's not true.' @SavannahGuthrie @TODAYshow Bob Woodward is a liar who is like a Dem operative prior to the Midterms.

At the start of September, Trump took to Twitter to vent his frustration at the book. Likewise other stories and quotes.

Woodward was born in IL in 1943 and attended Yale University before serving in the US Navy until 1970.

Sanders blasted Woodward's reporting as "incredibly reckless".

He noted that Ben Bradlee, the legendary Washington Post editor and his old boss, used to say, "The truth emerges".

The host then pointed out that Wolff's and Woodward's books are entirely different and need to responded in a different manner because the latter has written more than half a dozen books on the past presidencies.
