Today, Woodward said that Trump Administration officials, John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis are only trying to save face by denying quotes attributed to them in his new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, slated for release Tuesday. Saying on NBC’s “Today”…
“What’s going on here …They are not telling the truth.”
“These are political statements to protect their jobs ― totally understandable,”
Woodward went on to say his book “is as carefully done as you can do an excavation of the reality of what goes on.”

In his latest book, Fear, Kelly and Mattis are named as two of several senior current and former Trump administration officials who mock the president’s mental capacity and express concerns about his ability to lead.
Woodward wrote Kelly said Trump is “an idiot,” and according to The Washington Post, he has said …
“It’s pointless to try to convince Trump of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.”
Famously, one of the two reporters who unearthed the Watergate scandal for The Washington Post during the Nixon administration, Woodward also wrote that Mattis described Trump’s level of understanding as that of “a fifth- or sixth-grader.”
Trump, who once apraised Woodward’s work on Twitter and during a recorded phone call between him and Woodward released last week, said…
On Monday in a tweet citing the “Today” show, Trump called Woodward “a liar who is like a Dem operative prior to the Midterms.”
Trump also attacked the book as “a Joke ― just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults”….“I’ll write the real book!” Without mentioning all of his literary attempts have been written by ghostwriters like Tony Schwartz who is one of his biggest critics.
