President Donald Trump is reportedly scrambling in an effort to minimize the damage of renowned journalist Bob Woodward’s new book Fear: Trump in the White House. Despite repeated attempts from Trump and White House officials to discredit the piece, it’s built on hundreds of hours of interviews with White House officials—and they’re on tape.

Though White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s attempts to paint Woodward’s sources as disgruntled employees, Woodward insists that many are still working in the White House. And though he may not admit it, the president seems to know that too.

Trump, according to CNN, is on a mission to suss out officials who may have spoken to Woodward.

After Sanders, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, and Chief of Staff General John Kelly released fervent denials of the quotes attributed to them and of the book’s contents, Trump is listening for whose silences are the loudest.

In his efforts to do so, it would appear he’s endowing Fear with even more validity.

It’s beginning to have some outsiders concerned with the ability of the Trump administration to do its job.
