Trump rips Woodward, says book about White House is full of lies

Trump rips Woodward, says book about White House is full of lies

It appeared to be another instance of the president versus the administration, as Trump proceeded on one track while the agencies largely moved on another.

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.

Coverage of these early passages came following guilty pleas by Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen and convictions on eight counts of the president's one-time campaign manager Paul Manafort, as well as the release of recordings from the White House by former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman and her tell-all book.

In one particularly shocking passage, Woodward wrote that chief economic adviser Gary Cohn and White House staff secretary Rob Porter, before their ousters from the administration, stole documents off Trump's desk in the Oval Office so he couldn't sign them. But Woodward has already surpassed pro-Trump tomes like "The Russia Hoax" and Trump take-downs like "Unhinged". "That's just the Washington denial machine", he said Monday, a familiar formula created to protect their jobs and preserve their relations with their boss.

Among other things Colbert and Woodward discussed was if the author ever thinks about the motives of his sources.

"Imagine your lawyer telling you you're disabled and you can't testify because you can't tell the truth you just make things up", said Woodward to Colbert.

"We're certainly focused on things that actually matter", Sanders said on Monday afternoon.

"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources", Trump wrote.

Woodward, a Pulitzer-winning journalist, knows a little something about reporting on a peculiar White House.

Woodward claimed that "the incidents are not anonymous" even if the sources were because he provided dates, times and "who participates - most often the president himself, and what he says".

Donald Trump has been further quoted in the book that PM Modi told him that United States should at least get something from Afghanistan in return.

"I stole it off his desk", Cohn later told an associate, according to Woodward.

"I'm not because I know what I did and I'm not anxious about it", Trump Jr. said.

Indeed, Kelly has denied that he called Trump "an idiot", and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has denied that, after a particularly contentious National Security Council meeting, he said the president had the understanding of "a fifth- or sixth-grader". Trump has personally taken offense to the book's contents, which he described as "another assault against me".

The pair fought over Trump's desire to place tariffs on imports, and Cohn is said to have stolen documents off Trump's desk to prevent the president from pulling the U.S. out of major trade deals.

Asked if she was saying the op-ed constituted a misuse of classified information, Sanders replied, "Once again, it's something that the Department of Justice should simply look into, and that's for them to make that determination".

Cohn too took issue with Woodward's narrative.

"These are political statements to protect their jobs ― totally understandable", Woodward said of the denials on NBC's "Today".
