Michael Wolff Calls Tony Blair A “Complete Liar” After He Denies Asking Job As Trump’s Middle East Envoy
Tony Blair has been labelled a “complete liar” by the author of an explosive book about President Trump after the former PM denied that he asked an adviser to the American president for a job.

Appearing on the Andrew Marr Show, Michael Wolff who published Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House in January, said he had witnessed Mr Blair “sucking up” to Mr Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. He claimed that Mr Blair had been keen on a job as a Middle East peace envoy with Mr Trump’s White House.

Mr Wolff wrote in his controversial book that the ex-Labour leader told Mr Kushner that the UK might have spied on the Trump campaign and even the president himself.

When Wolff was asked about his comments that Mr Blair had tried to “get a job as part of the Middle East Quartet”, he told the programme: “I sat in the White House on the couch listening, I wasn’t supposed to overhear this, but they were standing right there, with Tony Blair and Jared Kushner standing not 15 feet in front of me with Tony Blair, let me choose my words carefully, sucking up to Jared Kushner.”

On the other hand, Mr Blair’s spokeswoman denied the claims insisting there is not a shred of truth in them.

“As Tony Blair has said, this story is a complete fabrication. Michael Wolff has never been present at any conversation between Jared Kushner and Mr Blair.” she added:

“He neither sought such a role from Jared Kushner nor was offered one. And we note that many people have had the same experience with Michael Wolff.”

Asked about Mr Blair labelling the story a “complete fabrication”, the author replied: “Tony Blair is a complete liar – literally 15 feet away from me.”

Mr Wolff also claimed Mr Blair suggested “the British” may have “had the Trump campaign staff under surveillance”, a claim Mr Blair denied at the time.
