“Tony Blair is a complete liar. Blair told the Trump team that British intelligence may have been spying on them before Trump assumed the presidency.”
Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is a 2018 book by Michael Wolff which details the behavior of U.S. President Donald Trump and the staff of his 2016 presidential campaign and White House. The book was originally scheduled to go on sale on January 9 2018, but the publisher, Henry Holt and Company, moved up the release date to January 5 2018 due to “unprecedented demand”.

In his bestselling new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”, Michael Wolff wrote that Blair told Jared Kushner there was a possibility “that the British had had the Trump campaign staff under surveillance, monitoring its telephone calls and other communications and possibly even Trump himself”.
Wolff’s book also said Blair had explained “that the Obama administration would not have asked the British to spy on the Trump campaign [but] the Brits would have been led to understand how helpful it might be if they did”.
Wolff said it was not clear whether the information was “rumour, informed conjecture, his own speculation or solid stuff” but that it had been shared because Blair had been angling to be Trump’s Middle East envoy. [The Guardian]
Tony Blair said that Wolff had made up both claims. In an interview on BBC One’s The Andrew Marr Show, Michael Wolff insisted he overheard the discussion between Blair and Jared Kushner.
“Tony Blair is a complete liar,” Michael Wolff stated.
“Blair told the Trump team that British intelligence may have been spying on them before Trump assumed the presidency.”
According to a report from the New Yorker, Robert Hannigan — the head of British communication intelligence at the time — flew to Washington during the summer 2016 to brief then-CIA Director John Brennan on intercepted communications between the Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government.
“Robert Hannigan, then the head of the U.K.’s intelligence service the G.C.H.Q., had recently flown to Washington and briefed the C.I.A.’s director, John Brennan, on a stream of illicit communications between Trump’s team and Moscow that had been intercepted. (The content of these intercepts has not become public.)”
I guess that “Tony BLiar” has once again revived the old Cretan logical paradox: Does a liar lie when he tells the truth?
PS: The title of the book refers to a quote by Donald Trump about the conflict with North Korea.
“Tony Blair is a complete liar.”
