The "Trump Resistance" Op-Ed

Army Col. Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, also said that a particular conversation cited in Bob Woodward's new book "Fear: Trump in the White House" on Trump's alleged demand to assassinate Syrian President Bashar al-Assad never happened.

In case it needed to be said, subverting the will of the people is not a crime.

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

Woodward tells Colbert how Trump goes "ballistic" at the questions and "makes things up, starts screaming, ' and says how the lawyer, Dowd, thought that if he had been Mueller, he would have been 'fired on the spot".

"I don't think there's any one author", he told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on "The Ingraham Angle".

On Secretary of Defense James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly publicly denying having said things they are quoted as saying in Woodward's book. -Common CauseWhile the op-ed argued that Americans should feel secure in the fact that there are "adults in the room", Common Cause argued that nothing in the piece should be comforting to the public.

President-elect Donald Trump stands with, left to right, Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Donald Trump Jr. before he speaks at a press conference at Trump Tower in New York City, Jan. 11, 2017. "I know what I borrowed, when I borrowed, when I paid it back.


I am proud of my service in the Trump administration, and I continue to support the president and his economic agenda", Cohn said in a statement provided to Axios. Trump raised the specter of launching a criminal investigation into the matter last week, suggesting the Justice Department look into who wrote the unnamed editorial. Neither of them says specific details or quotes offered by Woodward are wrong, mind you; they only say the overall picture is flawed.

"I think historically speaking, that would be what happens", he said.

Holding White House officials accountable for continuing to participate in an administration whose leader is "detrimental to the health of our republic" would require Commitee chairmen Sen. Porter described Woodward's chapters as offering a "selective and often misleading portrait", specifically rebuffing a passage that claims Cohn snatched a document from Mr. Trump's desk that would have pulled the USA out of a trade agreement with South Korea.

"So our people, the MAGA people, they have to turn out".

Trump Jr. also slammed former President Barack Obama, who recently expressed frustration with Trump taking credit for a strong economy, including 95 straight months of job creation, calling his comments "literally the most asinine thing that I've ever heard". "It would be very hard if it was, if they got caught". "What do we get from protecting Taiwan, say?" "Many have already come forward to say the quotes by them, like the book, are fiction".

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