In what was seen as an attempt to show Trump is mentally fit and in command, the president had kept a pool of reporters, including a TV camera, inside of a meeting he had on Tuesday with USA lawmakers on immigration.
"The law treats sources like Mr. Bannon as adults, and it is Mr. Bannon's responsibility - not Henry Holt's or Mr. Wolff's - to honor any contractual obligations", McNamara said.
Wolff said that the presidency is known to magnify the office holder in extreme ways and this is what's happened with Trump. He left Breitbart to join Trump on his presidential campaign in 2016, and Bannon would later become the White House chief strategist before leaving in August 2017 and returning to Breitbart.
In an interview with CBC News, he called Bannon a grand strategist "so he may very well have a plan".
Fire and Fury depicts a chaotic stream of advisors befuddled by the machinations of the White House and absent of any consistent legislative agenda. The author said he thinks it did not play out as Bannon had hoped. For now, I'll go with the final paragraph of the Politifact.com article.
Of course, while there has been a landslide of skepticism about the accuracy of the book, Wolff, a journalist, author of several books and a columnist, stands by his writing and has said so repeatedly during interviews.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders described the president's reaction to the book.
"So we're going to take a strong look at that", he said Wednesday.
The ripple effect of the Wolff book has been remarkable.
"Literally, I just sort of slipped in through the cracks", Wolff said about being able to gain access into the White House over the past year. He pressed the case again on Sunday, tweeting: "I've had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President".
Bannon is quoted as saying the meeting was "treasonous" and "unpatriotic. Why would I have written this book?" he said.
Some tend to think that to Steve Bannon, it's all a big game, and eventually he will find his way back into President Trump's good graces. "This is about what I saw what I heard.to the best of my ability to get what I believe to be the true story".
