New Book by Bob Woodward Alleges 'Administrative Coup D'etat' in the White House

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Veteran journalist Bob Woodward's new book "Fear" alleges the White House is dealing with an "administrative coup d'etat", including claims that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis ignored President Trump's request to assassinate Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and that Chief of Staff John Kelly called Trump "unhinged" and an "idiot". White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders criticized the veracity of the book, saying it is "nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the President look bad."
