The book's portrayal of a chaotic West Wing quickly drew the ire of Trump; one of his lawyers tried to halt the book's publication with a cease-and-desist letter.
The White House has roundly condemned the book.
Some of Trump's senior-most staff believed that Hicks, one of Trump's longest-serving aides who has acted as a gatekeeper for his interview requests, had authorized their cooperation with Wolff. Wolff on Saturday claimed that the book had raised questions about Trump's ineptitude at handling the administration and may as well bring about his downfall.
