Senior WH Official: I Fight To Thwart Trump’s Agenda

Bob Woodward Trump obstruction of justice sotu_00000000 Bob Woodward Has a New Book and Donald Trump Is Not Going to Like It

A senior official inside Donald Trump's White House has written an astonishing account of how staff try to act as a brake on the president's impulsive behaviour, and how he tried to limit sanctions on Russian Federation after the Salisbury poisoning.

"This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the President look bad", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

"Does the so-called "Senior Administration Official" really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source?" The book discusses a mock interview that attorneys conducted with Trump in which the president fared poorly, and that lawyers re-enacted parts of that interview for Mueller himself.

- Ivanka Trump, when told she was a "staffer" by Steve Bannon: "I'm not a staffer!" As expected, the demonstration did not go well and Trump at one point angrily called the investigation "a goddamn hoax". The writer expresses support for numerous policies of the administration - including, presumably, many that the typical members of the "resistance" find abhorrent.

Woodward is a widely respected and veteran journalist who helped expose President Richard Nixon's role in the Watergate scandal in the 1970s.

"They don't like Donald Trump and I don't like them because they're very dishonest people", Trump said of the.

The official's piece described a "two-track" presidency in which Trump says one thing and his staff consciously does another, for example with regard to what he called the president's "preference for autocrats and dictators".

The Washington Post reported journalist Bob Woodward's book contains an account of an "expletive-laden altercation" that was part of the Trump White House's stormy atmosphere.

Trump tweeted that quotes attributed to Mattis were "made up frauds, a con on the public". The book, which is scheduled for release on September 11, is the latest to detail tensions within the White House under Trump's 20-month-old presidency.

The book is not out yet, but you don't have long to get your hands on a copy...

"That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump's more misguided impulses until he is out of office", the alleged White House official wrote a day after Trump and his aides challenged the narrative of Bob Woodward's new book critical of Trump.

"I'll just take the paper off his desk", Cohn told another White House aide, according to the book.

"We have somebody in what I call the failing New York Times that is talking about, he is part of the resistance in the administration". "So I have another bad book coming out". Chief of staff John Kelly is quoted as calling Trump "an idiot" and lamenting, "We're in Crazytown".

However, whoever it may be, this newly published editorial reveals that someone in the White House does feel as though the administration's job is to build a wall between Trump and America - and regardless of how many are willing to say so publicly, this individual says numerous others are doing the same work.

It's also not created to put the administration on better footing - by allegedly revealing the inner workings of the White House, this staffer has launched a molehunt that will tear apart Trump's inner staff.
