Shop on Barnes & Noble


Conservative snowflakes, read no further.This will not be a safe space for you. For three and a half years, Russia's attack on the 2016 presidential election has dominated the news, yet most Americans know shockingly little of the story, because the facts are too sprawling and too surreal to grasp.For the first time, The Trump-Russia Hustle connects every piece of the Russia conspiracy puzzle until the entire terrifying picture becomes clear ― all the money connections and secret meetings, all the crimes, the changing stories, and the desperate attempts to silence the truth.Matt Szajer and Aidyl O'Connor weave together, in crisp and gripping detail, all the facts of the Trump-Russia investigation: Trump's decades-long relationship with Russian oligarchs, money-launderers and mobsters; his campaign's secret meetings with Russian operatives; his efforts to undermine the Justice Department's Russia investigation; and how, with the help of the rightwing propaganda machine, he's turned Republicans into Putin's puppets.By diving deep into the toxic swamp of modern conservatism, Szajer and O'Connor show the most disturbing aspect of the Trump-Russia scandal isn't what Trump is doing ― it's how he's getting away with it. The Trump-Russia Hustle exposes the danger to America from congressional Republicans who shield Trump from accountability, the conspiracy-peddling media who act as his propaganda machine, and the radical voters who defend him with cult-like devotion.Told with a sense of breathtaking urgency, The Trump-Russia Hustle is a chilling indictment of the perverse conservative political culture that allows Trump and his allies to escape consequences and encourages Russia to continue its assault on our democracy.It's the whole story, laid out in terrifying detail.
