Is Trump considering lie detectors to identify anonymous op-ed author?

Trump Others Question Integrity Credentials of Anonymous Author

The anonymous official, identified only as "a senior official in the Trump administration", launched a almost unprecedented attack on the President in the op-ed, saying Trump's "erratic" and "amoral" behaviour is "detrimental" to America's health.

Colbert's critique concerned the very last line of the book, which contains a swear word that finishes a dramatic scene, leading Colbert to conclude that Woodward buried the lede.

Porter said that suggesting materials from Trump's desk were "stolen" to prevent the president from taking action "misunderstands how the White House document review process works".

Kelly is quoted calling Trump "an idiot", and Mattis is quoted saying Trump has the understanding of "a fifth or sixth-grader", but they've said they didn't make those statements.

In the wake of the op-ed, numerous officials have denied being its author, however Trump Jr. said the president has a "much smaller group" of people he believes he can trust.

Still, Woodward's book has fed talk that Trump could seek to replace Kelly and Mattis. "Family members of the 28,000 people there", said Woodward.

A new best-selling book about U.S. President Donald Trump, his decision-making and his administration went on sale to the public Tuesday. The only book that directly deals with Trump that outranks Fear is Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury, something that Woodward's book would struggle to overcome, but the book is sure to keep selling and see even more printings.

Markets InsiderPresident Donald Trump sits behind his desk as he announces a bilateral trade agreement with Mexico to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) at the White House in Washington. "But someone actively trying to undermine the duly elected president and the entire executive branch of government, that seems quite problematic to me and something they should take a look at", she said.

"Just run the presses - print money", Trump said, according to Woodward. Dems can't stand losing.

President Trump invites robust discussion and asks probing questions. But I really appreciate their statement.

Don Jr. offered his own theory on who was behind last week's opinion piece, which claimed White House staff are deliberately frustrating numerous president's orders. "And I think we can break history", he added.

Don Jr. also denied speaking to his dad about a 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer who offered dirt on Hillary Clinton - but says he thinks Special Counsel Robert Mueller is still going to come for him.

Woodward's book is based on "deep background" interviews, which he defines in his book as interviews where "all the information could be used but I would not say who provided it". Trump has referred to Woodward as a "liar".
