    Washington Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward warned that revealing the sources for his book Fear: Trump in the White House “might get somebody killed” during a Monday interview on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal. Woodward was asked — via a question posed on Twitter — about a possible subpoena of his notes and recording from special counsel Robert Mueller or the Justice Department:

    I was minding my own business reading about Bob Woodward, the GREATEST INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER IN THE HISTORY OF OUR REPUBLIC (as he will be the first to tell you), and came across this bit of genius from his book. According to The New York Times, Woodward is flabbergasted that former FBI Director James Comey released the Russian dossier, when he had the "airtight" report of 17 INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES. Woodward writes: "It would be as if I had reported and written one of the most serious, complex stories for The Washington Post that I had ever done, and then provided an...

    It's déjŕ vu all over again, in Yogi Berra's memorable expression: senior unelected FBI officials conspiring with the Washington Post and New York Times to drive a Republican president from office. Kudos to Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit for spotting a 2014 State Department email from SecState Hillary's aide Sid Blumenthal that was declassified and released in 2015. In it, Blumenthal states as a fact that Bob Woodward has been an "FBI asset" since the days of Deep Throat. See for yourself

    Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher. The investigative book by the veteran Watergate reporter, who has written books about every administration dating back to President Nixon, was powered by excerpts published before the book's public release Tuesday and President Trump's public rejection of it. Trump called the book "a con on the public" consisting of quotes that are "made up frauds" designed to boost Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm...

    Longtime journalist Bob Woodward said Monday that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly “are not telling the truth” when they deny making disparaging statements about President Donald Trump attributed to them in his new book, “Fear.” Kelly is quoted calling Trump “an idiot,” and Mattis is quoted saying Trump has the understanding of “a fifth or sixth-grader,” but they’ve said they didn’t make those statements. Woodward, asked on Monday on NBC’s “Today” show about their denials, said, “They are not telling the truth.” He said “these are political statements to protect their jobs.” The...

    Donald Trump on Friday slammed investigative journalist Bob Woodward's damning portrayal of the inner workings of the US president's administration as a "scam," alleging that it includes made-up quotes. "The Woodward book is a scam. I don't talk the way I am quoted. If I did I would not have been elected President. These quotes were made up. The author uses every trick in the book to demean and belittle," Trump tweeted.

    He’s in the middle of two of the most withering stories from “Fear,” per WaPo’s summary of it yesterday. One was when Trump allegedly phoned him to say that he wanted to take out Assad and Mattis politely heard him out, then immediately turned to his deputies and told them to ignore all of that and prepare a more measured response to Syrian WMD use instead.The other was Mattis allegedly telling people that Trump understands issues like a “fifth- or sixth-grader” and noting that “secretaries of defense don’t always get to choose the president they work for.” The idea...

    Carl Bernstein on Tuesday called on White House chief of staff John Kelly to resign and submit congressional testimony about what he has seen during his time in President Trump's orbit. The call from the veteran journalist comes following the release of a bombshell book about the Trump administration written by his old partner, Bob Woodward. "It would seem to me that General Kelly, in the interest of the country, needs to resign and with a statement that says, 'The presidency can no longer be entrusted to this man,' " Bernstein said on CNN after reviewing the contents of the...

    For the past week Washington has found itself debating Bob Woodward. The occasion: his very public argument with White House senior official Gene Sperling, in which Woodward left the impression that Sperling had somehow tried to intimidate him—only to see this accusation undermined --SNIP-- For the Post they had written about the president’s men; in the book they were writing about themselves and their sources. Simultaneously, they adopted a style that was all the rage at the time—the so-called New Journalism, a technique that employed literary devices normally considered the domain of novels. In the hands of an apostle like...

    President Donald Trump's closest aides have taken extraordinary measures in the White House to try to stop what they saw as his most dangerous impulses, going so far as to swipe and hide papers from his desk so he wouldn't sign them, according to a new book from legendary journalist Bob Woodward. Woodward's 448-page book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," provides an unprecedented inside-the-room look through the eyes of the President's inner circle. From the Oval Office to the Situation Room to the White House residence, Woodward uses confidential background interviews to illustrate how some of the President's top...

    Veteran journalist Bob Woodward is working on a book that will detail the inner-workings of the Trump White House set for release before November's midterm elections. The book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” is set to be released on Sept. 11, according to the book’s pre-order page. The book “reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies,” according to Amazon. The cover depicts a close-up of Trump's face, cast in a red filter. Woodward’s account is based on “hundreds of hours...
  • 'Gestapo' Tactics--Colin Powell regrets his remarks.

    <p>Among the disclosures in Bob Woodward's new book, "Plan of Attack," is that Secretary of State Colin Powell had reservations about going to war in Iraq.</p> <p>This comes as no great surprise, though we do wonder what President Bush thinks of a Cabinet officer who uses a book to distance himself from the boss on an issue that is central to his re-election campaign. The last ranking official who used Mr. Woodward to pad his own reputation at the expense of the President was budget director Richard Darman as George H.W. Bush was running for re-election. If Mr. Powell disagreed so passionately about Iraq, the more honorable path would have been to resign -- before the war.</p>
