Veteran reporter and author Bob Woodward said he would release tapes of his interviews for any source who requests it in an interview with conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt on Friday morning.

The interview with Hewitt is part of Woodward’s media tour to promote his book, “Fear: Inside the Trump White House” that saw more than 750,000 copies sold in its first day of release on Tuesday alone.

The article goes on to state the following:

“If you one of your sources, who you have taped, comes forward and publicly asks you to release those tapes, would you do so?” asked Hewitt.

“Yes. I think I would,” Woodward replied. “This is meticulously done trying to cross reference everything and so forth. I would expect somebody would not want to release their information because they’re confidential sources and as you know, I protect my sources. I think it’s one of the building blocks of journalism and book writing.”

Woodward told CBS on Thursday that he has “boxes of recordings and documents” that will show how careful he was with sourcing in “Fear.”

Several top Trump administration officials, including chief of staff John Kelly, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, former chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, White House staff secretary Rob Porter and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley have all publicly disputed accounts in the book in recent days.

On Tuesday, Woodward pushed back in an interview with The New York Times, stating a “key” official in the administration privately told him that the book’s details are “1,000 percent true,” while publicly dismissing them.
