President Donald Trump took to Twitter late Thursday to proclaim that he never gave any access to Michael Wolff for his book which hits stores Friday.

Wolff was able to conduct over 200 interviews with those in the White House and close to Trump by sitting on couches in the West Wing and at a hotel across the street.

“I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book!” Trump tweeted. “I never spoke to him for book. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist. Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!” An apparently reference to Steve Bannon.

The latest attack is part of a long and very public breakup between the previous allies.

Trump’s tweet could be an attempt at a pre-emptive strike to justify litigation. If Trump authorized the White House staff to speak to Wolff, non-disclosure agreements he requires the staff to sign, wouldn’t be valid because he gave consent. Trump has sent cease and desist letters to both Wolf and Bannon while the White House has gone in full attack mode. Trump is threatening a libel lawsuit, but in all of his threats for libel, Trump has never once actually sued.

The New Hampshire Union Leader released a statement in their publication on Sunday defending their decision.

"There is no love lost between this newspaper and President Donald J. Trump. The Union Leader was very quickly dismissed by then-candidate Trump after we failed to bestow on him our endorsement in the Republican primary four years ago, "the statement said. "We were hopeful with Trump’s win that he might change, that the weight and responsibility of the Oval Office might mold a more respectful and presidential man. We have watched with the rest of the world as the mantle of the presidency has done very little to change Trump while the country and world have changed significantly."

Josh Holmes currently serves as a top adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

The worst-case scenario for the GOP, he said, is "potentially catastrophic."
