The Hill
Washington Post publishing book on Trump and Russian election interference

The Washington Post is set to publish a book later this year about Russia's interference in the 2016 election, and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of the matter.

“The Apprentice: Trump, Russia and the Subversion of American Democracy” will be published Oct. 2 by Custom House, a publishing imprint of HarperCollins, according to The Post.

“No other book has covered the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election with greater scope and determination to get to the truth,” Custom House said in a release.

The book's main author will be Washington Post national security correspondent Greg Miller, but The Post said journalists from the paper’s national, foreign, business and local desks contributed reporting.

NPR Book Review
In 'Everything Trump Touches Dies,' Few Are Spared ...

Wilson's anti-Trump criticisms are popular on Twitter, where he aggressively attacks pro-Trump accounts with his signature style of wit and insults.

Brevity is the soul of wit — and this book would have been better off left in a series of tweets.

From The Hill -
Omarosa secretly recorded Trump: report

Omarosa Manigault-Newman, a former aide to President Trump, secretly recorded conversations with the president while she was serving in the White House, multiple sources told the Daily Beast.

Manigault-Newman, who prior to working for the administration appeared as a contestant on Trump's reality show "The Apprentice," is coming out with a tell-all book about her experience in the White House. The book, titled "Unhinged," is set to be released on Aug. 14.

She wouldn't be the only person to have recorded her interactions with the president: Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and sometime-fixer, is known to have recorded Trump as well. One such recording was recently released and revealed Trump discussing possible payment to a former Playboy Playmate with whom he was accused of having an affair.

The Hill has reached out to the White House for comment.

Simon & Schuster, the publisher of “Unhinged,” told the Daily Beast in a statement, “Without commenting on the specific contents of UNHINGED,” the spokesperson said, “we are confident that Omarosa Manigault Newman can substantiate her highly-anticipated account of life inside the Trump White House.”
:dance: - I love it.

Omarosa Claims Trump Repeatedly Used 'N-Word' During 'The Apprentice'

Former “Apprentice” contestant and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman claims President Donald Trump repeatedly used “the N-word,” according to The Guardian, which obtained an advance copy of her forthcoming book Unhinged.

Newman, who left the White House last year, says that Trump used the racial slur while taping “The Apprentice” and that he was caught on camera. Trump starred on the reality TV show for years.

Rumors have for years swirled that such outtakes exist. In her book, to be released on Tuesday, Newman does not specify whether she heard Trump use the slur or whether she saw footage of him using it. She says she heard him use other racial epithets in reference to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband George, who is half-Filipino. This explains George's tweets against Trump.

The $$$$ quote:
“It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist,” she wrote, according to The Guardian. “Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole.”

Nah, the Trump Presidential Library will consist solely of one million copies of the Art of the Deal. Only books "written" by Trump have the quality to get the honor of getting into the Trump Presidential Library.

Omarosa is on Meet the Press this morning, and they said she'll be on the Today Show tomorrow. I'm still unsure what to make of her (waiting for the book), but she did have audio tapes of Kelly firing her. Some controversy over her taping that, but LOL - look at the responses here.


Who in their right mind thinks it’s appropriate to secretly record the White House chief of staff in the Situation Room?

Newsweek
Donald Trump Should Be Impeached Now Because ‘The Constitution Demands It’: New Book

Congress, which has the authority to begin impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump has been reluctant to act, awaiting the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal investigation, among other things.

But in a new book, three veteran constitutional lawyers argue that the framers of the Constitution provided impeachment as a remedy in anticipation of a leader like Trump, and that he’s committed enough offenses for removal proceedings to begin immediately.

The framers of the Constitution “were obsessed with corruption,” and “to defend against this ever-present danger, they built bulwarks into the Constitution itself,” the book The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump, set for release Tuesday, says.

“President Donald Trump has been violating the Constitution since the moment he took the oath of office—and since then, the corruption, abuse of power, and abuse of public trust have only gotten worse,” the authors Ron Fein, John Bonifaz and Ben Clements write.
