Fox News Host Says Trump Admin TOLD Staffers To Talk To Wolff For ‘Insider’ Book


Saturday morning, long-time Fox News host Chris Wallace dropped a bombshell about the new tell-all book by Michael Wolff, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, after days of denials and confusion about the startling revelations inside.

According to Wallace’s source in the west wing, Trump’s communications office — headed by Dan Scavino and once populated by the notorious Anthony Scaramucci — actually instructed staffers and aides to speak to Wolff for the book he was working on. Apparently, they were under the mistaken impression that Wolff’s angle would be much different than it turned out to be.

Said Wallace:

“They thought – and there is a real question as to why they thought this – that they were gonna get a fair shake from Michael Wolff. People say ‘why did they talk to him on the record?’ They were told to.”

If Wallace’s inside information is accurate, it would undermine the president’s claim that he never took an interview with Wolff nor gave him any access whatsoever to the inner workings of the Trump administration. Of course, we all know that’s a lie, as parts at least of his account have already been corroborated by multiple sources.

Couple the factual backup from many of the people appearing in the book with the fact that staffers are considering leaving over this, and it becomes clear that much if not all of what’s inside Fire and Fury is an accurate account of Trump’s daily dealings with the world.

Not only that, but Trump himself, in a tweet he has yet to delete or reissue in some different way, called his former top adviser Steve Bannon a “leaker.” The use of the word indicates not that Bannon is a liar — which Trump most assuredly would have called him if that were the case — but someone who is spilling secrets.

As for how a Fox host comes to sound like he’s siding with the truth for once, never fear: Wallace’s primary aim in the report was to indicate that he thought the White House was responding to the book’s release all wrong: He thinks they should have ignored it completely.
