Trump's Attacks Backfire As Bob Woodward's 'Fear' Gets 1 Million Copy Run

As our national debt balloons and our deficits continue to rise at a staggering rate, new details have come to light about President Trump's request in order to halt the rising debt this country continues to be burdened with. Instead, Sanders said just the notion the unidentified official may be involved in national security matters was grounds enough to launch a probe.

"The suggestion that materials were "stolen" from the president's desk to prevent his signature misunderstands how the White House document review process works - and has worked for at least the last eight administrations", Porter said in the statement to The Salt Lake Tribune.

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".

Asked if the Trump showed signs of mental defect, Woodward said "my job here is not to psychoanalyze, it's to describe what happened". In his 1987 book "Veiled" about the CIA, Woodward attributed quotes he claimed to have gotten from former CIA Director William Casey.

"I'm not because I know what I did and I'm not anxious about it", he said, again denying that he spoke to his father about his June 2016 Trump Tower sit-down with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton. "Woodward would have performed rudimentary journalistic fact checking with those he was quoting, he would have had a more accurate book rather than just being a stenographer for Mr. Bannon's self-aggrandizing revisionist history". Dems can't stand losing. The Afghan leaders were corrupt and making money off the US, Bob Woodward writes in the book.

"I'm talking outside family". "Trump wasn't buying it", writes Woodward.

The Jets matched their road victory total from last season (with one) and set a franchise record for points in a road game. Darnold shook off the poor start, though, and showed the poise that the Jets have fallen in love with since drafting him.

"If I did I would not have been elected president".

The book's findings were amplified when The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed from a senior administration official, claiming the president's staff seeks to thwart his "more misguided impulses".

Woodward's book, deploying several other top aides-including Chief of Staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis-to dispute their characterizations. "Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public".

The book also quotes Mattis, after a contentious National Security Council meeting on January 19, as saying Trump acted like and had the understanding of "a fifth or sixth-grader".

On Monday, Colbert asked Woodward, "How do you feel when the president says you're lying?" "It's a contest for the truth - what is the truth - and I'm willing to put myself out here", Woodward continued.
