During an interview with The New York Times’ podcast, “The Daily,” legendary journalist Bob Woodward said that a “key” White House official read his book and claimed that the details about Donald Trump are “1,000 percent true.”
On Tuesday, Woodward’s book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” was officially released and the veteran journalist came on “The Daily” to talk about it.
Woodward told reporter Michael Schmidt that a “key” Trump administration official read excerpts from the book that were released last week and called him to praise the accuracy of his book.
“After the information in ‘Fear’ started breaking last week, one key person who’s in office called and said ‘Everyone knows what you said here is true. It’s 1,000 percent correct,’” Woodward said. “And then this person has said some public things that contradict that.”
Woodward did not mention the official’s name as he wasn’t pleased with their public statement.
“And I’m not happy but I have a smile on face because the truth in all of this is going to emerge,” Woodward said. “There’s too much evidence, too many witnesses.”
