On the heels of the success of juicy Trump administration insider tomes like Bob Woodward’s “Fear” and Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury,” a new genre of government exposé is on the horizon: deep dives into the Justice Department.

According to a Friday Vanity Fair report, coming down the pike are New Yorker writer Jeffrey Toobin’s book on Robert Mueller’s probe and obstruction of justice in the administration, New York Times writer Michael Schmidt’s “Mueller-oriented project” and New York Times columnist James Stewart’s work on the intersection of Trump’s White House, the FBI and the DOJ.

Based on Trump’s reaction to the insider accounts published so far, a batch of books centering on Mueller’s probe, one of his biggest anxieties, is likely to set off even more turmoil and paranoia in the White House.
