Trump has grown paranoid and anxious over an ongoing federal inquiry into whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation in Moscow's alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election, prompting aides to compare Mr Trump to former President Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal, Woodward reported.

Woodward's latest book on a USA president is set for public release next week. According to CBS News, Fear is set to be released later this month.

Don't testify. It's either that or an orange jumpsuit.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Dowd says, "There was no so-called "practice session" or "re-enactment" of a mock interview at the Special Counsel's office".
