In Fear: Trump in the White House, Woodward's forthcoming exposé on Trump's presidency, the Watergate reporter describes a scene in which former chief economic advisor Gary Cohn "stole a letter off Trump's desk" before the president could sign it to keep him from terminating a trade agreement with South Korea.

LIASSON: That's right. He is reported in the Woodward book to have told Donald Trump that he could sit down - the choice was between testifying to Bob Mueller or an orange jumpsuit.

Furious over an article, allegedly penned by a senior official who claims to be a part of the White House resistance working against Trump, the USA leader has urged the New York Times to reveal its "phony" anonymous source. "Big deal", Trump told Woodward, according to a transcript of a telephone call released by the Post.

Trump called the piece a "gutless editorial", noting its anonymous writer, and called its publication a "disgrace". McConnell says he won't discuss "observations by these apparent sources" Woodward used about Trump.

The tell-all book by the reporter who helped bring down president Richard Nixon is the latest to throw the Trump administration into damage-control mode with explosive anecdotes and concerns about the United States commander-in-chief.

The piece titled "I am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration", said that meetings with the president would "veer off topic and off the rails". "He (Trump) is also denying it, by the way", Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz told Tel Aviv radio station 103 FM.

Trump earlier on Wednesday tweeted the book had already been refuted by Defense Secretary James Mattis and Chief of Staff John Kelly-both quoted in the book as trashing Trump or not following orders-and said it was a "shame" books could be made up. These are people in the administration who want to see it succeed, but are afraid Trump is going to jeopardize the progress the administration has made so far. That's thanks to the "unsung heroes" Trump has in the White House in the form of aides who have gone to great lengths to contain the president's bad decision to the West Wing.

The book from the Washington Post author is out September 11.

"I think the basic concern that a lot of Americans will have when they read the piece is that the president can not be trusted by his own senior officials", Lawrence Jacobs of the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs told KARE.

The unsigned piece appeared to reinforce the claims made in the new book by investigative journalist Bob Woodward, which describes a virtual cabal of like-minded White House and cabinet officials scheming to prevent Trump from taking decisions damaging to the U.S. economy and national security. "So I have another bad book coming out".

'Mob rule' rocks US Senate hearing for judge
As Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley began reading his opening statement, he was interrupted by Democratic Sen. President Trump weighed in on the hearing Tuesday, saying that it was a display of how "angry. the other side is".

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Fox News she hasn't spoken with Mr. Trump about filing any libel lawsuit.

Woodward did not interview Trump for the book, but Trump did reach out to Woodward in August.

It's also not created to put the administration on better footing - by allegedly revealing the inner workings of the White House, this staffer has launched a molehunt that will tear apart Trump's inner staff.
