On the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Germany last month, President Trump’s advisers discussed how to respond to a new revelation that Trump’s oldest son had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign — a disclosure the advisers knew carried political and potentially legal peril.
The strategy, the advisers agreed, should be for Donald Trump Jr. to release a statement to get ahead of the story. They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged.
But within hours, at the president’s direction, the plan changed.
... said one of the president’s advisers, who like most other people interviewed for this article spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal deliberations.

WAPO's reporting has been pretty accurate, all things considered. Not sure what the complaint here is, unless you're just trying to drive more traffic to WAPO.

Trump should start a lawsuit for slander every time a hit piece comes up citing anonymous sources, since it can't be proven unless they disclose the source, they will have to settle every single time, easy money!!!
