Woodward Book: Trump’s Meltdown Over Mueller And Failed Mock Interview

Bob Woodward’s new book, “Fear: Trump in the White House”

Bob Woodward’s new tell-all book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” offers revealing, behind-the-scenes glimpses of the president’s reaction to the ongoing special counsel investigation of possible Russian collision and obstruction of Justice.

According to the new book, Trump believed Mueller had too many conflicts to be special counsel, including his past membership to Trump National Golf Club and his firm’s former relationship with his son-in-law. 

The appointment of Mueller in May 2017 incensed the president, according to the book.

“The president erupted into uncontrollable anger, visibly agitated to a degree that no one in his inner circle had witnessed before. It was a harrowing experience,” Woodward wrote.

The book also suggests Trump failed a mock interview to prepare for a possible sit-down with Mueller.

The president initially told the public he wanted to sit for an interview with Mueller. But during a practice interview with his former personal attorney, John Dowd, Trump performed miserably, at times contradicting himself and lying, sources told Woodward.

“Don’t testify. It’s either that or an orange jumpsuit,” Dowd told the president.

According to the book, which is scheduled for a Sept. 11 release, Dowd told Mueller’s team that the president did not perform well.

“I’m not going to sit there and let him look like an idiot,” Dowd told Mueller. “And you publish that transcript, because everything leaks in Washington, and the guys overseas are going to say, ‘I told you he was an idiot. I told you he was a [expletive] dumbbell. What are we dealing with this idiot for?'”

Down decided to step down shortly after, telling Trump, “You’re not a good witness.”

He continued, “Mr. President, I’m afraid I just can’t help you.”
