Michael Wolff, the author of an explosive new book on the Trump presidency, said people inside the White House believe that if special counsel Robert Mueller investigates President Trump’s finances in the Russia probe, “he’s sunk.”
“People don’t think in the White House — don’t think that he colluded with Russia,” Wolff said during an interview with CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
“They do think that if the investigation goes near his finances, he’s sunk.”
Wolff also said he was “confident” in the accuracy of everything printed in his book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” which was released last week, sparking lots of controversy and criticism.
Mueller is currently investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and potential collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.
Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion, calling the Russia probe a “witch hunt.”
The Hill added:
In July Trump warned Mueller against investigating his family’s finances beyond the probe into ties between his campaign and Russia.
Last year, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted on charges including conspiracy against the United States, tax fraud and money laundering in connection with the Russia probe.
