"Wait till you read this book. It blew me away. . . . Could not have come at a better time as we close the chapter on the Mueller Report. . . . This is a must-read book. . . . This will be a movie." —Sean Hannity

Deep State Target is the only firsthand account that proves the attempted sabotage of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign by American and international intelligence services, from former Trump advisor George Papadopoulos—whose global network and clandestine meetings about Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails made him the first target of Spygate, the Mueller Investigation, and the Russian Collusion Hoax.

As a young, ambitious foreign policy advisor to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, Papadopoulos became the first Trump official to plead guilty in special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. He is now the first campaign advisor sentenced and to have served time in prison.

But as he explains in Deep State Target, there was an intricate set up at play, and it was neither Trump nor the Russians pulling the strings. American and allied intelligence services set out to destroy a Trump presidency before it even started. An energy policy consultant working for the insurgent campaign, Papadopoulos encountered a rogues’ gallery of infamous figures employed by agents from the US, Britain, and Australia. Here, he gives the play-by-play of how operatives like Professor Joseph Mifsud, Sergei Millian, Alexander Downer, and Stefan Halper worked to invent a Russian conspiracy that would irreparably damage the Trump administration.

Papadopoulos was there: In secret meetings across the globe, on city streets being tailed by agents, and ultimately being interrogated by Mueller’s team and agreeing to a guilty plea.

Deep State Target is a shocking account of international spy games and a disturbing eyewitness report on a secret double government—the Deep State—intent on destroying lives and a presidency.

About the Author

George Papadopoulos became the first person to plead guilty in the Mueller Investigation when—on October 5, 2017—he conceded that he had lied to the F.B.I. about a conversation with a professor during which he was told that Moscow had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton and “thousands of emails,” according to court records. Papadopoulos is a former adviser to President Trump and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Dr. Ben Carson. A University College London graduate, past Hudson Institute analyst, and career oil, gas and policy consultant, he was sentenced to 14 days in jail, fined $9,500 and ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and one year of probation after he serves his sentence. He is married to Simona Mangiante and lives in Los Angeles.
