Bob Woodward says he would release book interview tapes if strongly challenged

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.'"

Watch the video above to see Woodward's response to the recent ousting of "60 Minutes" executive producer Jeff Fager.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Bob Woodward says he would release book interview tapes if strongly challenged

Partner, Bob Woodard is the "Giant Sixth Grade Journalist" plus he is really not a journalist at all, since he never said anything or wrote anything about the Witch Miss Hillary shenanigans!!! Heck, some Freepers could make big bucks writing a book about the Witch Miss Hillary.

President Nixon was destroyed since he had one (1) FBI file on Daniel Ellsberg. "The Witch Miss Hillary" had at least 400 to 500 FBI files maybe even more on all the Republican Congress and some other folks that she deemed as enemies to the "Clintoon Crime Syndicate!"

We have so many good investigative Freepers who could actually write a book on this worthless "Witch Miss Hillary!"

We still can not believe that folks were shedding tears on her loss to President Trump. Indeed, a sight to behold!!!

After reading your response, I think Dan Brown might be the next one to get in on the game.
