(KCBD) - Managers at Barnes and Noble in Lubbock say they were sold out of Michael Wolff's 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House' by 9 a.m. today. For those who were looking forward to buying the physical copy of the book, there is a reservation list at the bookstore. The book is still available for digital downloads.
The much-anticipated book at the center of a controversy between President Donald Trump and his former aide was released Friday morning, four days ahead of its original release date.
In a tweet Thursday, Trump said he never spoke to Wolff regarding the book. '"Full of lies, misrepresentations and source that don't exist," Trump said.
Those familiar with the book claim it shows Trump unfit and unstable to be president. In the book, former Trump chief strategist Stephen Bannon described a meeting between Donald Trump, Jr. and Russians during the campaign as "treasonous."
Thursday, the White House issued a cease-and-desist order to the book's publisher to Wolff and publisher Henry Holt & Co., alleging the book contained potentially libelous information. White House lawyers accuse Bannon of violating a non-disclosure agreement.
Booksellers were notified of the decision to publish the book hours after the cease-and-desist, according to CNN.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday the far-right American news website BreitbartNews should consider removing Bannon from his post as executive chairman.
