An explosive exposé that lays out the story behind the Steele Dossier, including Russia’s decades-in-the-making political game to upend American democracy and the Trump administration’s ties to Moscow.
“Harding…presents a powerful case for Russian interference, and Trump campaign collusion, by collecting years of reporting on Trump’s connections to Russia and putting it all together in a coherent narrative.” —The Nation
December 2016. Luke Harding, the Guardian reporter and former Moscow bureau chief, quietly meets former MI6 officer Christopher Steele in a London pub to discuss President-elect Donald Trump’s Russia connections. A month later, Steele’s now-famous dossier sparks what may be the biggest scandal of the modern era. The names of the Americans involved are well-known—Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page—but here Harding also shines a light on powerful Russian figures like Aras Agalarov, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and Sergey Kislyak, whose motivations and instructions may have been coming from the highest echelons of the Kremlin.
Drawing on new material and his expert understanding of Moscow and its players, Harding takes the reader through every bizarre and disquieting detail of the “Trump-Russia” story—an event so huge it involves international espionage, off-shore banks, sketchy real estate deals, the Miss Universe pageant, mobsters, money laundering, poisoned dissidents, computer hacking, and the most shocking election in American history.

All politics aside, no American wants to believe that their President may be guilty of something as serious as treason. What gets me about Trump and how his White House is behaving and reacting to news reports on this subject seems very suspicious. What is happening now with the Special Counsel's and Congress' investigations has a scary correlation to the contents of this book and people need to be waking up to the reality that these accusations may be proven. If so, we are looking at an unprecedented Constitutional crisis. Something so big that political partisanship will have to take a backseat to patriotism.
A very good and clear presentation of all of the publicly available information on the current scandal. The information is compelling and the number of "coincidences" literally strains credibility. This is about as good as it gets about explaining what has really happened, short of Robert Mueller's final report. If you haven't made up your mind yet as far as the current scandal, this book will definitely help you do that
We know much more about the Trump contamination. Will still likely need a mountain more to bury him
I am thankful that the world is blessed with journalists who are still willing to present truthful information
YES there is "something there" there! YES there is a "something burger!" Wake up America!
Thoroughly researched and meticulously annotated this book is the definitive record of Trump administration personnel contact with a foreign power bent on influencing US policy though myriad methods. Highly informative, fascinatingly engaging and deeply troubling to any honest and open minded reader. Excellent work.
I wish I could write a book that libtards would buy to make me a lot of money like all these people cashing in on negative and fake news on our wonderful President Trump m GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP
This guy wouldn't know the truth if it kicked him in the head!
