The author of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Michael Wolff, has publicly thanked Donald Trump for making his book new book a dazzling success – currently enjoying a #1 bestseller status on Amazon.
Here we go. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. Thank you, Mr. President.

Just days into 2018, a bombshell hit the White House; excerpts of the new explosive exposé were released and it appears all hell is breaking loose.
On January 3, New York Magazine shared a portion of Wolff’s book, which includes salacious details of what’s been happening in the West Wing in the past year; and the president’s reaction has been less than surprising.
On the same day the article was released, Trump’s lawyers sent a cease and desist letter to Wolff which prompted the publisher to release the book on Friday, January 5 — four days early — because of “unprecedented demand.”
Wolff claims he has hours of tapes with the people he interviewed for the book backing up what he wrote. While the book is filled with juicy details, some of what’s already been leaked looks especially damning for Trump and his inner circle.
If what Wolff wrote is accurate, it appears the president committed obstruction of justice when he dictated an official statement for his son, Donald Jr., regarding the June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer. Additionally, Wolff’s reporting on “Trump instructing the White House counsel to talk Sessions out of recusing himself in the Justice Department’s Russia probe — where the attorney general would be a witness or potentially even a target — would be important to investigators.”
