He later stated, "O$3 ne of the things we have to count on is that Donald Trump will attack, he will send lawyers' letters".

The White House has contested the accuracy of some of the salacious anecdotes and claims in Wolff's book.

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with law professor and commentator Jonathan Turley (@JonathanTurley) about the book's legal implications, and Trump's reaction.

Instead of Trump sitting for 60 Minutes, "the interview went to Fox News' Sean Hannity, who, White House insiders happily explained, was willing to supply the questions beforehand", Wolff wrote in a column on his book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, for The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday.

Some employees have raised concerns regarding the restrictions, noting that texting throughout the day is the easiest way for them to keep in touch with their families.
