he's got a long history of ignoring off the record requests, but in this case, Wolff's style trumps unpresidented norms.

Yup. An off-the-record request is just that. A request. Norm-following reporters will abide by it because they want to keep their sources and not scare off new ones. Someone who is about to make a bazillion dollars on a book so popular that it will now take a month to arrive with Amazon Prime shipping? Not so much.

He's unethical as hell, but that's why he's the rat to catch a rat.

I'd call the whole WH cast of characters a Keystone Kops like circus, but that would be such a slam on the Kops.

Sad that Progs have reduced themselves to elevating the likes of Colbert and Wolff.  Two peas in a pod.

Now Tumpy is saying that Wolff had no permission to be in the WH. Gee, he had the run of the west wing for most of nine months. He probably put in more time there than most of the staffers.
This Tumpy, he's a burrito short of a fiesta platter.
