Sarah Sanders calls for investigation into anonymous op-ed author

Woodward and Trump. More

Now an associate editor at the Washington Post, Woodward is still best known for the fact that beginning in 1972 he and fellow journalist Carl Bernstein published a series of articles revealing salient details about the Watergate scandal and President Richard Nixon's role therein.

When Colbert brought up the fact that some people in the Trump administration were portrayed as types of heroes, Woodward replied, "You get to know these people, and you realize they're speaking from conscience, because they are anxious about Trump doing things".

Stephen Colbert asked Bob Woodward what made him afraid during the writing of "Fear: Trump in the White House".

Bob Woodward has drawn President Donald Trump's ire in recent weeks ahead of the release of the veteran journalist's book about the inner workings of the White House.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, in turn, is quoted as saying the president has the mental capacity of a "fifth or sixth grader", while Chief of Staff John Kelly is quoted as calling Mr Trump "an idiot".

Donald Trump has the IQ of an "inbred tanning bed", according to the president's former chief economic advisor, Gary Cohn.

"It's frankly, I think, sad and pathetic that a gutless anonymous source could receive so much attention from the media", Sanders said of the New York Times piece.

The White House on Monday sought to project an image of productive forward momentum, even as President Donald Trump and many of his aides remain sidetracked and preoccupied by dual accounts of a warring and mutinous West Wing.


Trump Jr. began by questioning whether the op-ed was really written by a "senior official" in the Trump Administration. "You have millions and millions of Americans who voted for this".

Asked whether he was shocked by what he uncovered in his book, Woodward said: "I've never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what's going on".

"Is the White House actively trying to find out who this person is?" And they're in a position, and. they should say whatever they want to say.

Although the primary topic of this video has to do with the debate between getting information that's off the record or instead on deep background, the moment that strikes perhaps hardest is that Woodward found the current iteration of the White House "shocking". If I did I would not have been elected President. "It would be very hard if it was, if they got caught".

More recently, Trump has accused Woodward of fabricating quotes and questioned whether US libel laws could be changed so that people who believe they have been wronged would be in a better position to seek "retribution".

According to reports, Donald Trump has been quoted by senior journalist Bob Woodward that PM Modi during his meeting with Donald Trump had raked the Afghanistan issue and told him that U.S. got nothing from Afghanistan. "A source tells us he [Trump] shouted out 'Bring back Hope Hicks!' Apparently, he preferred her response to ["Fire and Fury" author] Michael Wolff", said Blackwell.

While he has become popular on the campaign trail, Trump Jr. said he hasn't thought about running for office himself.
