White House press secretary Sarah Sanders briefed reporters on Wednesday afternoon, as the White House, and much of official Washington, was coming to grips with the potential damage that a new book could have on President Donald Trump's administration.

The forthcoming book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," by Michael Wolff, contains a number of stunning allegations about Trump, his former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, and others close to the president.
