Disgraced former White House staffer Rob Porter was forced to publicly condemn Bob Woodward’s book on Trump after his lover Hope Hicks, who remains loyal to the president, threatened to dump him, sources have exclusively told DailyMailTV.
Porter, 40, who left the White House in February amid accusations of domestic abuse from his two ex-wives, distanced himself from Woodward’s new book on Tuesday following its release.
Besides the quotes attributed to Porter, it has been widely suggested that Porter is one of multiple sources who spoke to Woodward off the record.
Porter described the book, Fear, as ‘selective and often misleading’ in a lengthy statement which also gave a glowing portrayal of the presidency.
Woodward, the Washington Post’s star investigative journalist since the early 70s when he broke the story on the Watergate scandal, told Axios that he stands by his reporting.
