Trump Had WH Lawyer Urge Sessions Against Russia Probe Recusal Source

In an early Saturday morning tirade, Trump slammed the "Fake News Mainstream Media" for questioning his mental fitness on the heels of the newly released book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", which brought the argument to full force earlier this week.

Trump, 71, issued the tweets from the presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland, where he was meeting Republican congressional leaders and many Cabinet secretaries about their legislative agenda for the year.

Wolff, he said, "doesn't know me at all" and did not receive the three hours of time with Trump that the author has claimed. Earlier, he had tweeted, "Thank you, Mr. President". "I absolutely spoke to the president... it certainly was not off the record", Wolff told Savannah Guthrie.

Wolff spent 18 months reporting on both the Trump campaign and the Trump White House. Michael Wolff, who wrote, "Fire and Fury: Inside The Trump White House", included a note at the start of the book casting significant doubt on the reliability of specifics in the book.

In Washington, D.C., people lined up at midnight to get Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

But the publisher instead announced that it was moving up the book's release from January 9 to today. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.

The book also offers a possible explanation for footage of the couple during Trump's inauguration that shows Melania smiling at her husband before appearing downcast the moment he turns away from her.

Some of Mr. Bannon's preferred candidates, like former Rep. Michael Grimm of NY, denounced Mr. Bannon after his comments became public.

Wolff said Friday he had spoken to Trump since the inauguration.

Wolff's book has attracted a huge amount of attention this past week due to the author's highly critical view of Donald Trump's first year as United States president, as well as it's more freaky claims. Trump threatened legal action, demanding that Holt withhold the book.

MICHAEL WOLFF: Not only does he not read, he doesn't listen.

Wolff said many of those close to Mr Trump describe him as a moron, an idiot and like a child.

The book's most scathing comments about Trump and his family come from Bannon, whom Trump called "sloppy Steve" in his latest tweet.

The new fissure in an already fractious Republican Party cast doubt on Bannon's hopes to foment a movement centered on "Trumpism without Trump".

"I was certainly willing to be convinced to think differently, willing to think that this unusual figure had a new way to approach things and, what the heck, maybe it would work", he added.
