Famed columnist Michael Wolff gained extraordinary access to the Trump White House to write a new book, and now everyone on Pennsylvania Avenue is alarmed about what he might publish.
The best-selling author spent months inside Trump's West Wing, documenting the heated conversations and internal strife that has plagued President Donald Trump's first year in office. Axios reported that Wolff was often unsupervised as he witnessed first hand the instability and crumbling power structures. The new book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," will be published in January.

The upcoming release date apparently has everyone in the West Wing on edge. Axios reported that Trump officials and staffers have been reaching out to Wolff to figure out what their allies and enemies have been telling him. "It's the fundamental dynamic of this White House people divided against each other," Wolff told Axios.

The book will have a series of portraits on some of the biggest names in the White House, such as Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway, Gary Cohn, Stephen Miller, Dina Powell and Hope Hicks, Axios reported. According to the upcoming release, the book is "based on more than 200 interviews with the president, most members of his senior staff, and many of the people they in turn spoke to, Wolff shows how Trump and his team careened from one crisis to the next during the administration's first nine months."

One cutting quote from the book includes: "Perhaps not since the Tudors has palace intrigue been so corrosive and lethal, nor the king so volatile and so in need of instant gratification."
