Watch Stephen Colbert’s interview with Bob Woodward on Fear

'Bring Back Hope Hicks!' Trump Reportedly Wants Former Aide Back

On the eve of its release, the president took to Twitter with a preemptive round of attacks, denouncing as fiction Woodward's reconstruction of scenes in which frustrated aides scramble to contain the mercurial president's reckless impulses.

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". After all, Colbert manages to work in plenty of Woodward's bona fides during the interview, including how many books he's written (Fear is number 19), his Pulitzers (two), and how many presidents he's covered (nine).

Colbert also asked Woodward what he thought about Trump and some of his top officials - including James Mattis and John Kelly, who were quoted in the book - disparaging the new book.

On Friday, President Trump said he knows of "four or five" people who could've been behind the op-ed, which described a plot within his administration of "many" senior officials who are "working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations". "I think that's a shame".

"Sources are not anonymous to me, I know exactly who they are", Woodward said on the podcast.

In the latest book by renowned journalist Bob Woodward, US President Donald Trump has described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as his friend who told him that the US has got nothing out of Afghanistan. His book portrays Donald Trump as an angry man becoming increasingly paranoid about Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

Serena, Osaka begin play in US Open final
Open! But because of her prior warning, Serena was assessed a point penalty, which gave Osaka a 15-0 lead in the 1-1 service game. But I don't want to overthink this match, so I'm not going to think that she's so much better than she was in Miami.

It was not clear how aggressive White House efforts were to root out the op-ed writer, though a person close to the White House who was not authorized to speak publicly said officials had focused in on a few names.

I think that's a much broader conspiracy than people think. Instead, The Times reported that federal prosecutors in a separate inquiry issued a subpoena for entities that were connected to White House senior adviser and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

"And I'm not happy but I have a smile on face because the truth in all of this is going to emerge", Woodward said.

Cohn says Woodward's book "does not accurately portray my experience". "It is past time for the Republicans in the majority in Congress to put their country before their party and provide investigatory oversight, because no legislation nor nominee is worth the potential threat to our democracy outlined in recent accounts of the Trump White House".

The journalist then says how Dowd told Trump that he either do it his way or get "fitted for an orange jumpsuit". The Cohn comments are just one of the many revelations from Bob Woodward's book, "Fear". "What do we get from protecting Taiwan, say?"

The non-denials stand in contrast to Chris Christie, who said in a tweet that quotes from the book were "incorrect". If I did I would not have been elected President.
