The man who wrote The Making of Donald Trump said that the president had him investigated in attempts to silence him.

David Cay Johnston told MSNBC Saturday morning that Trump attempted to dig up dirt on him while he was working on the 2016 biography on the businessman and now-president.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Well, Donald has long had other people investigated to try and get them to back off. He did it to me.
