Author Michael Wolff said Friday morning that he stands behind "absolutely everything" in his provocative new book about President Donald Trump's first year in office, which the White House has panned as "trash" and riddled with falsehoods.
Wolff added that he has the evidence to back up his work: "I work like every journalist works so I have recordings, I have notes", Wolff said. Wolff said he had spoken to the president for a total of roughly three hours between the campaign and his time reporting inside the White House.
According to multiple media reports, about a dozen lawmakers from the House and Senate received a briefing from Yale psychiatrist Bandy X Lee on Capitol Hill about Trump's fitness to be president.
Some reporters did look at Wolff's past and found reason to doubt his latest account.
Mr Trump's lawyers tried to block publication of the book, before publishers brought the release date forward. Trump slammed the media claiming that his achievements as a businessman, television star and politician should qualify him as "a very stable genius".
The White House has said the book is riddled with errors, and campaign and administration officials have disputed events depicted in the book.
"This is a guy who made up a lot of stories to try to sell books", Sanders said in an interview on Fox News Channel.
In his latest online onslaught yesterday Trump accused his critics of trying to make an issue of his mental stability and intelligence. "Many leaving are quite fearful about the next chapter of the Trump presidency". It was available in bookstores on Friday, and has already hit No. 1 on Amazon. "But it certainly was not off the record".
"Your publication of the false/baseless statements about Mr. Trump gives rise to, among other claims, defamation by libel, defamation by libel, defamation by libel per se, false light invasion of privacy, tortious interference with contractural relations, and inducement of breach contract", the letter says. She said Wolff never interviewed the president, saying that he "repeatedly begged to see the president". "Smart!" Trump tweeted Friday morning. Mr Trump has promised to address the situation, but his "opioid czar" Kellyanne Conway does not appear to be at Camp David. Wolff, 64, said on NBC's "Today".
