Keying off of the criticism, MSNBC’s Katy Tur, who covered the Trump presidential campaign from wire to wire, pressed Wolff himself on Monday afternoon in a must-watch interview.

Why not release the materials? “Because that’s not…I’m not in your business,” said Wolff, contradicting what he’d said a moment earlier. “My evidence is the book. Read the book. If it makes sense to you, if it strikes a chord, if it rings true, it is true,” he said.
Bolding inserted to highlight a very faulty formulation, also known as the Doctrine of Too Good to Check.
