Not surprisingly not one of the lefties here, salivating over the latest tabloid, has mentioned that Woodward never actually talked to any of the people he claims said this or that. He says he asked people what those people might have said.

That is yellow journalism.

He recorded every conversation.

This guy won 2 Pulitzers and has been a respected journalist for over 50 years. I'll take his word over a lying grifter who was put into office by a foreign power.

"He recorded every conversation.'
- If they exist why is he hiding them?


"has been a respected journalist" by the far-left extremists except when he went after Obama.

But Trump is (or was) pals with the guy that runs The National Enquirer. Isn't that an equivalency of a Pulitzer Prize journalist?

It was The National Enquirer that took down John Edwards for banging a mistress while his wife was dying of cancer.

The conversation was only mildly about the NE. It wasn't about John Edwards.

Opinion
I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration
I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.

Sept. 5, 2018

The Times today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers. We invite you to submit a question about the essay or our vetting process here.

President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader.

Itís not just that the special counsel looms large. Or that the country is bitterly divided over Mr. Trumpís leadership. Or even that his party might well lose the House to an opposition hellbent on his downfall.

The dilemma ó which he does not fully grasp ó is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.

I would know. I am one of them.

To be clear, ours is not the popular ďresistanceĒ of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.

But we believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.

That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trumpís more misguided impulses until he is out of office.

The root of the problem is the presidentís amorality. Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making.

Although he was elected as a Republican, the president shows little affinity for ideals long espoused by conservatives: free minds, free markets and free people. At best, he has invoked these ideals in scripted settings. At worst, he has attacked them outright.

In addition to his mass-marketing of the notion that the press is the ďenemy of the people,Ē President Trumpís impulses are generally anti-trade and anti-democratic.

Donít get me wrong. There are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more.

But these successes have come despite ó not because of ó the presidentís leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective.

From the White House to executive branch departments and agencies, senior officials will privately admit their daily disbelief at the commander in chiefís comments and actions. Most are working to insulate their operations from his whims.

Meetings with him veer off topic and off the rails, he engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back.

ďThere is literally no telling whether he might change his mind from one minute to the next,Ē a top official complained to me recently, exasperated by an Oval Office meeting at which the president flip-flopped on a major policy decision heíd made only a week earlier.

The erratic behavior would be more concerning if it werenít for unsung heroes in and around the White House. Some of his aides have been cast as villains by the media. But in private, they have gone to great lengths to keep bad decisions contained to the West Wing, though they are clearly not always successful.

It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room. We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do whatís right even when Donald Trump wonít.

The result is a two-track presidency.

Take foreign policy: In public and in private, President Trump shows a preference for autocrats and dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin of Russia and North Koreaís leader, Kim Jong-un, and displays little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations.

Astute observers have noted, though, that the rest of the administration is operating on another track, one where countries like Russia are called out for meddling and punished accordingly, and where allies around the world are engaged as peers rather than ridiculed as rivals.

On Russia, for instance, the president was reluctant to expel so many of Mr. Putinís spies as punishment for the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russia, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behavior. But his national security team knew better ó such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable.

This isnít the work of the so-called deep state. Itís the work of the steady state.

Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until ó one way or another ó itís over.

The bigger concern is not what Mr. Trump has done to the presidency but rather what we as a nation have allowed him to do to us. We have sunk low with him and allowed our discourse to be stripped of civility.

Senator John McCain put it best in his farewell letter. All Americans should heed his words and break free of the tribalism trap, with the high aim of uniting through our shared values and love of this great nation.

We may no longer have Senator McCain. But we will always have his example ó a lodestar for restoring honor to public life and our national dialogue. Mr. Trump may fear such honorable men, but we should revere them.

There is a quiet resistance within the administration of people choosing to put country first. But the real difference will be made by everyday citizens rising above politics, reaching across the aisle and resolving to shed the labels in favor of a single one: Americans.

The writer is a senior official in the Trump administration.

You'd be more effective if you established credibility. I doubt you even care about politics. I doubt you hate Obama and I doubt you love Trump. You just love to fight. Whatever floats your boat. For what it's worth, I think you are interesting when you provide more substance, rather than the predictable one-liners that we heard the day before in the media. Get back to the better Muleman.

Yes, Fox News is one source of factual information and is well respected.
That is a major reason why they are by far #1 in ratings and no one else is even close.

Fake News (formally known as CNN) is somewhere around 25th.

When Mueller's report is released and as more time passes, history will see Nixon as a choir boy compared to the guy who put children in cages, is a friend of white nationalists, alienates allies, got played like a fool by Putin and KJU, groped women, paid off a Playboy Bunny for an affair after the birth of his young son, paid off a stripper for an affair when he was married to Melania, and put his unqualified daughter and son in law into senior advisor positions, and the list goes on.
