'Gorilla Channel' Excerpt From Anti-Trump Book Takes Internet By Storm—Too Bad It's Fake

By Mark Pygas

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff releases earlier than originally planned today, after an incredible hype train with Wolff releasing excerpts of the book to the media. The book itself contains interviews with major players in the White House, including former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Sam Nunberg, a former campaign aide to Trump. 

President Trump's lawyers had attempted to quash the book by sending a cease-and-desist letter to Wolff and his publisher, Henry Holt. The letter alleges that the book excerpts contain "false/baseless statements" about the president. Though Wolff claims to have recorded interviews, including those with Steve Bannon. 

In the book, Wolff quotes Bannon as calling a 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic." Bannon allegedly went on to say that the Mueller investigation is “going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV."
