Story from InfoWars, with a video imbed of the interview.

Wolff was being interviewed by Norah O’Donnell of CBS and, despite the fact that his book claims to have quotes from many WH officials (calling Trump an idiot, etc), Wolff was forced to admit that he did not actually interview any of those people. Not Mike Pence, not Steve Mnuchin, not Reince Priebus, not H.R. McMaster, nada.

That leaves only two possibilities: either Wolff is repeating unfounded rumors (Steele Dossier, part 2?) or else he just made this stuff up whole cloth.

But he promises us he really did interview Trump -- for over 3 hours -- without Trump realizing he was being interviewed. Uh huh. Sure you did, wolfie-boy.

Wolff was brought in by Steve Bannon. Everything in that book is just Steve riffing to Wolff for hours on end about his particular brand of craziness, none of it is based in reality. Bannon is a miserable human being who weaseled his way into the administration, and once Trump realized the guy was a fraud he kicked him to the curb. Bannon's pissed now, so of course it's no surprise that this book comes out now.

This book is nothing but the paranoid delusions of Steve Bannon as told by Michael Wolff.

Bannon was vengeful as Trump took away all Bannon's hopes and dreams for gaining immense wealth and power...
And perhaps usurping the Presidency...
Malfeasance committed by Wolff and Bannon ?

Indeed. I think that's EXACTLY correct.

This author seems like a total loser.


Michael Wolff started his interview with Stephen Colbert on Monday's Late Show by suggesting that President Trump might be watching, because "one of the remaining contacts I have said he asked for my media schedule today. Wolff said he didn't expect his book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, to cause such a splash, and when Colbert pointed out that it paints Trump as a mentally unfit illiterate "gibbering to his cheeseburger," Wolff explained, "I thought we knew this."

Colbert asked Wolff about his author's note on believing the events he recorded to be true, and Wolff explained that in the Trump White House, "everybody is telling you different stories," or rather "lying in their own particular way," so he had to use his "judgment" to discern "what versions of stories to include." Colbert said he was conflicted reading the book. "As a comedian, sure, I'd love all this to be true so I can make jokes about it," he said. "But as a citizen, I don't want any of it to be true. And you don't have sourcing, at least not listed, for everything you've got in here, so how much of it should I believe?" "You should believe all of it," Wolff said. "That's the alarming thing, that this is all true."

As a writer, I always tape interviews. Every writer I know does the same. Wolff, claims to have hours and hours of tapes.
Actually they aren't tapes but SDHC media, recording to a unit smaller than a box of altoids.

Perhaps the WH should take Wolff to court so we can listen to the tapes.

didn't wolff say earlier that he has audio evidence of most of his malarkey? I cannot find the quote but I remember he said that.

Wolff can say anything he wants, but he just admitted that he did not interview the people he quoted. Who gives a crap if he has recordings of the WH janitors repeating fourth-hand rumors to him?

Apparently the WH thought he was good enough to be brought into the White House to record Trumps transition in to the presidency and politics. You reap what you sow.....

my point exactly. Big difference having audio proof from source as he claimed earlier or having that proof from, like you said, 4th hand rumors... Seems like a libel case more and more isn't it?

and rightly so...

I wonder if the Administration has the balls to take Wolff to court and listen to the tapes?

The white house is in total melt down because of "the book"

Wolff rights fiction based on some real events. He is not a documentary writer, his content is not to be even considered legit, it is for entertainment in reading.

I don't think Bannon actually said all the things the book says he did, but what the heck, it is just a fictional book. Someone should inform Trump about this, he is taking it too seriously as he always seems to overreact to things. Wolff clearly states that this information is probably not real in his book, so why are some people getting so defensive and why are some people believing that his book is a real documentary? He is not uncovering anything, he is just a writer who writes things that are probably not real things. If he actually does get some facts straight in his books, it is purely coincidental and probably not intentional.

Wolff stated this morning that he will NOT release the audio.
I think it was this morning. I will try to find it.

Michael Wolff: "I spent about 3 hours, in total, with Donald Trump"

Technically correct, but Donald Trump was not yet President. He was candidate Trump.

Correct, the pocket recorder is a journalists best friend.
