basically fake news....
President Trump strongly criticized Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," as "a total fraud," "work of fiction" and "totally discredited." But Woodward said he drew from hundreds of hours of interviews for his book, which is published by Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS. The book depicts a chaotic White House with details from participants and witnesses to the Trump administration.
Asked whether he would release any of the interview tapes, Woodward told "CBS This Morning" on Thursday: "Well, if somebody really wants to challenge me, of course. Of course. But I again, I've made agreements with people that these sources are going to remain confidential."
Bob Woodward's "Fear" some top takeaways In the book, Woodward described a "nervous breakdown" in the administration. In an interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell, FBI Director Christopher Wray told her he has "not seen a 'nervous breakdown' of executive power."
"I have also not read Mr. Woodward's book, and I'm not sure whether I'll ever find time," Wray added.
Woodward responded to Wray, saying, "His experience is limited with Trump." Wray was confirmed as FBI director in August 2017.
"I spent over a year on this. I have literally hundreds of hours of tapes with people who were there. If you've looked at the book, they're very specific incidents. And it is a kind of it opens the window," Woodward said.
Various Trump administration officials have come forward to deny certain accounts in the story, including White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis. Woodward addressed the various push-back he's getting.
"Look, going back to the Nixon case, any of these books you're going to have what I call this 'survival denial' by somebody who wants to be politically connected with the president. And that's fine," Woodward said. "But as the great editor of the Washington Post, Ben Bradlee said, the truth emerges. And it does. And I've done this time and time again where you get denials. Oh, 'Nixon and Kissinger did not pray on the eve of Nixon's resignation.'"

Woodward has sexually harassed ducks. Will release videos if required..
HE IS A LIAR!!!IMO. To hell with that propagandist.
The same Bob Woodward who interviewed William Casey who was in a fatal coma at the time.
So now he admits that he never had tapes of Donald Trump which was his initial assertion.
Only hearsay recordings of unsubstantiated inflammatory nonsense.
I don’t believe it either. Anyway, if he has tapes of scoundrels on the inside, I wish he would release them (nope; he never would even if he had them). He is now officially a presstitute.
Who cares , roll em and stuff em
If Gov. Jerry Moonbeam Brown could get secret messages from moonbeam emanations all these years then why couldn’t we believe Woodward hears ghost whispers from a dying Casey in a coma?
Just get the books onto the bestseller section racks and set up the cash registers. Woodward will supply the BS books.
LOL. If strongly challenged?
All the people in the book have already called Woodward a liar.
lol, poor little ducks.
Honestly, the way he talks, his mother might have been impregnated by a duck.
Just do it! I am tired of the liberal threats. If it is true, President Trump needs to know who not to trust. Clean house!
...if strongly challenged...
Come on White House folks, strongly challenge this asshole...call his bluff!
yep. He has been strongly challenged. He needs to shut up and go away, but being a communist tool out for capitalist cash, he won’t.
Due it sock sucker. Now, right now!
Now we’re supposed to worry about anti-Trump Stormy Daniels’ lawyer tapes,Cohen tapes,Omarosa White House Situation Room tapes and Woodward secret tapes?
Next they’ll say coded messages are found listening to Hillary’s interview tapes slowed to half speed and run backwards. “I buried Paul.” Now we’re getting somewhere.
All right, scheisskopf, let’s hear them.
Put up or shut up.
After reading your response, I think Dan Brown might be the next one to get in on the game.
