Educate yourself. Men of integrity and honor have said it's a lie. Unnamed sources don't trump the actual people who are on record.


Men of "integrity and honor" are ----ing bricks. Look at their choice: hang on and pilot the ship of state, or steer it straight into the rocks. What would you do in their position.


Speak up about his mental state demand congress do its job.

If he was half as dangerous as you claim it would be much riskier to leave him in office than to remove him.

Proving Defamation Through Libel or Slander

Laws vary amongst states, but generally, there are rules that an individual must prove to show that a statement is defamatory. A statement may be considered defamatory if it was:

PublishedFalseInjuriousUnprivileged

The term, “statement,” refers to something that can be spoken, written, pictured, or gestured. In reference to a statement that is published, it means that a third party saw or heard the statement, but it does not necessarily mean that it was printed in a book or magazine. It can be radio, speeches, television, social media, or even loud conversation.

Defamatory statements must also be false, because true statements are not considered damaging to others. A plaintiff must also prove that the statement harmed her or him. For instance, she lost work because of the statement, or he was shunned and harassed by neighbors because of defamatory remarks



This all goes to proving damage occurred. Not that the person publishing it had malicious intent.
I guess that could be established. But note...the statements must be false. Someone cannot claim they were damaged by the truth.

I repeat: "constitutional crisis in an election year." What about his enablers in Congress like Nunes? What about candidates he is endorsing like Ted Cruz?

I Don't watch CNN.
You are off topic with your link. This is about Bob Woodwards book.

Got anything to add to that conversation?

He wasn't sued because no one believed the movies therefore nobodies reputation was damaged and no loss occurred. Easy peasy.

The lengths you will go to believe your own falsehoods are incredible

This book must be true because Woodward hasn’t been sued

But when books or movies are made that say terrible things about Hillary or obama and they are not sued, well now your standard changes

Nice job moving the conversation off topic by you and silly.

Bob Woodward also has more credibility than any statements coming from the Whitehouse. And certainly more than Fire & Fury author Michael Wolff who's book was a best seller and said the same things.


Woodward only has credibility if he can back up his
fictional claims, and at this point after General Mattis's
statement that is adding up to zero. Woodward is full of B.S.



Woodward also has tapes and he's more believable than Omorosa who also has tapes.


I read his interview with President Trump, and it was nothing
more than Bob Woodward asking repeatedly why he wasn't
given direct access to The President. How ridiculous of
Woodward, basically he had hurt feelings because he was
told NO.

The rest of your one liner "but but he said" posts that
have littered this thread for the last 5 pages will be ignored.

Your obviously triggered, and just can not deal with the reality
that the Secretary of Defense has called out Woodward's bullcrap.

General Mattis just literally called Bob Woodward a liar, and put the MSM on notice.

Hmm not really about the book, more about Mattis calling woodward out for his lies.
Not really surprising in this climate of trashy democratic politics.

remember when he was impaled through his backside, driven through twon by terrorists who cheered as they were torturing him, and Hillary laughed while saying "We came, we saw, he died


No one remembers that because it never happened. He was brought to the hospital still alive. That was all lies.
This also isn't about Benghazi stop changing the god damned subject !

I'd trust Gen. Mattis over pretty much anyone ever in Washington.



Me too.

"the president has the foreign policy understanding of a fifth- or sixth-grader"
- Gen. James Mattis

Glad he is putting the country first and saying what he needs to say to protect the USA from it's angry and mentally disabled President's whims.

Woodward is no stranger to people denying his reporting.
He broke the story that took down Nixon.
He also has "hundreds of hours" of tapes from interviews.

What part of "throwing appointments into question" are you having trouble understanding? There is nothing in the Constitution that deals with lifetime appointments made by a crazy president.

The Secretary of Defense is doing exactly what he needs to in order to Defend the USA...From it's unhinged President who "has a 5th or 6th graders understanding of Foreign Policy".
