Several Republican senators told reporters they haven’t read any part of Bob Woodward’s new book, CNN reports.

As the lawmakers went into lunch on Wednesday they told reporters they hadn’t seen the book.

“Haven’t seen the book,” Sen. Ted Cruz said.

Sen. John Kennedy added, “I haven’t read it.”

The book “Rage” features 18 different interviews the president gave journalist Bob Woodward from Dec. 5, 2019 to July 21, 2020. Woodward also conducted hundreds of hours of confidential background interviews with firsthand witnesses for the book, according to CNN.

The book shares details of Trump telling Woodward that he intentionally downplayed the threat of coronavirus in order to avoid creating a panic. The book is set to be released on Sept. 15. 

While Sen. Rick Scott said he had not read the book, he added that more information could have been disseminated.

“I do believe that the federal level, state level and local level, they could have done at putting out more information, even today,” Scott said.
