Sarah Sanders calls for investigation into anonymous op-ed author

Trump Jr. laments small number of White House aides president can trust

That's counter to accounts in Woodward's book and in an anonymous op-ed in The New York Times from a senior administration official of a Trump White House mired in dysfunction, with aides disparaging the Republican president and working to prevent him from making disastrous decisions.

"'It is mostly anonymous sources in here, why should anyone trust you?"

Trump tweeted Monday that he has been subjected to "Phony books, articles and TV "hits" like no other pol has had to endure".

"Let's talk about your process a little bit because we live in an era where the president talks about fake news".

"When there was a contest, back and forth, he said, 'the truth emerges, ' " Woodward recalled. People know who Woodward is.

However, Cohn cited no specific objections to Woodward's book, which was released Tuesday, and opened with the former Goldman Sachs chief operating officer saying he "stole" a draft letter off Trump's desk to South Korean President Park Geun-hye that would have ended the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement.

Kelly is quoted calling Trump "an idiot", and Mattis is quoted saying Trump has the understanding of "a fifth- or sixth-grader". He's gone off the rails.

In response to both attacks, Woodward told Axios in a statement: "I continue to stand by my reporting". "This is the worst job I've ever had".

"Are they lying?" Guthrie asked Woodward.

The journalist and author of the highly anticipated upcoming book Fear appeared on NBC's Today show on Monday, suggesting that President Trump's actions are not being treated "seriously enough".

He explained: 'That doesn't mean they won't try to do something...(I'll) deal with it as it comes. What I want to focus on is - here's the problem. It depicts a "two-track presidency" in which Trump acts according to his own whims while many of his top aides, in the author's words, work to thwart his "more misguided impulses until he is out of office".

"The Woodward book is a scam".

"Does this ring true?"

"General Mattis, General Kelly said it's not true", Trump continued. "I know every godd-- one". "Does it ring true?"

Christie denies these claims and called Woodward a "stenographer" for former Trump official Steve Bannon. "I wish the people could see the real facts - and our country is doing GREAT!", Trump tweeted on September 7.

Controversy on his credibility is not a new issue for Woodward.

Trump has his "First Amendment rights, he can say anything", Woodward continued, who then went on to quote former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, who helmed the paper during the Watergate years.

At the time, however, Casey was in a coma and near death.
