Woodward's White House book a 'scam'

The New York Times article, said to have been written by a male "senior official in the Trump administration", attacked the president for being "amoral" and having no ideological principles.

The book claims Trump calls Attorney General Jeff Sessions "mentally retarded", while describing how his own staff called the president "unhinged" and an "idiot".

Mattis a day earlier had issued a statement denying his remarks in Woodward's book.

Legendary reporter and author Carl Bernstein was on Reliable Sources on Sunday and spoke with host Brian Stelter about the anonymous New York Times op-ed and Bob Woodward's book "Fear: Trump in the White House".

Bob Woodward's bombshell book about President Trump's conduct reveals a chief executive who has little or no understanding of how defense policies work and has lost the confidence and respect of his senior advisers.

Berstein said the the book and the op-ed together create a picture and that is "extraordinary".

"It's very important who it is".

"People who work for him are anxious - that he will sign things or give orders that threaten the national security or financial security of the country or of the world", Woodward told 'CBS Sunday Morning'.

Doria Ragland 'secretly visits' her daughter Meghan in the UK
The trip is expected to be tied to the Invictus Games in Sydney, which kick off on October 20. A source told the Mail on Sunday newspaper: "The visit was totally under the radar".

He said that without that detail on the op-ed author's story, "I wouldn't have used it".

'Well, too vague, and does not meet the standards of trying to describe specific incidents. Cohn was reported to have told a colleague Trump did not notice it was gone. The document would have withdrawn the United States from a trade agreement with South Korea.

Woodward's book is based off of hundreds of hours of interviews with current and former officials, and includes several remarkable examples of top Trump aides disparaging their boss.

Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post's fact-checker, seized on Dao's explanation of how the New York Times made a decision to describe the author. "We fully recognise what is happening".

The 25th Amendment allows the vice president to take over if the commander in chief is "unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office".

However, the writer says no one wants to cause a constitutional crisis. "So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until - one way or another - it's over".

Robert Leonard, a linguist at New York's Hofstra University, who is often retained by defendants and prosecutors in criminal cases involving threats, plagiarism and libel, told the Washington Post: "A problem with public people is that a lot of their published work is edited, so it's like mixing fingerprints or DNA". A joke here and there?

The editorial section, which is separate from the news section, would not have published an anonymous op-ed without the consent of the publisher and a consensus among editorial page editors that the views expressed about President Trump needed to be heard.
