A new book from political journalist Michael Wolff may contain bombshell information about the inner workings of the Trump White House. At the very least, it will have plenty of juicy quotes.
“My goal was not to write as an outsider looking in, but to find out what the insiders were really thinking and feeling,” Wolff told the Guardian.. Wolff was reportedly on the scene at pivotal moments in the early presidency, such as when Trump fired former FBI director James Comey.
The specter of the Russia investigations seems to loom large in the book.
“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV,” Steve Bannon told Wolff when speaking about the Russia probe.
“This is all about money laundering,” Bannon adds. “Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f****** Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Junior and Jared Kushner… It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”
Another big theme of the book is the bad blood between Bannon and the president’s family members, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.
“It is a war between the Jews and the non-Jews,” said former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger about the White House.
