Publisher's Summary

The real collusion in the 2016 election was not between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. It was between the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration.

The media-Democrat “collusion narrative”, which paints Donald Trump as cat’s paw of Russia, is a studiously crafted illusion.

Despite Clinton’s commanding lead in the polls, hyper-partisan intelligence officials decided they needed an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency. Thus was born the collusion narrative, built on an anonymously sourced “dossier”, secretly underwritten by the Clinton campaign and compiled by a former British spy. Though acknowledged to be “salacious and unverified” at the FBI’s highest level, the dossier was used to build a counterintelligence investigation against Trump’s campaign.

Miraculously, Trump won anyway. But his political opponents refused to accept the voters’ decision. Their collusion narrative was now peddled relentlessly by political operatives, intelligence agents, Justice Department officials, and media ideologues - the vanguard of the “Trump Resistance”. Through secret surveillance, high-level intelligence leaking, and tireless news coverage, the public was led to believe that Trump conspired with Russia to steal the election.

Not one to sit passively through an onslaught, President Trump fought back in his tumultuous way. Matters came to a head when he fired his FBI director, who had given explosive House testimony suggesting the president was a criminal suspect, despite privately assuring Trump otherwise. The resulting firestorm of partisan protest cowed the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel, whose seemingly limitless investigation bedeviled the administration for two years.

Yet as months passed, concrete evidence of collusion failed to materialize. Was the collusion narrative an elaborate fraud? And if so, choreographed by whom? Against media-Democrat caterwauling, a doughty group of lawmakers forced a shift in the spotlight from Trump to his investigators and accusers. This has exposed the depth of politicization within American law-enforcement and intelligence agencies. It is now clear that the institutions on which our nation depends for objective policing and clear-eyed analysis injected themselves scandalously into the divisive politics of the 2016 election.

They failed to forge a new Clinton administration. Will they succeed in bringing down President Trump?

Shedding light.

In our currently heated political environment listening to attorneys break down events and corresponding laws is insightful.

Fair and objective summary

One of the better accounts of the 2016 election. To steal a phrase this book is a "Fair and balanced" look at the 2016 election.

Must read for a balanced (not left, not right) account

Informed, well balanced, unbiased from a formal Federal Prosecutor. You can feel Mr. McCarthy’s emotional journey from what he once thought would never happen to what actually did happen.

Don’t waste your money for liberal spin & sympathy

I’m half way through & can’t stomach any more. His anti-Trump bias is nauseating. And the obvious liberal sympathies make me wonder if he’s on the side of law & the Constitution at all.

Amazing book - Trump Russia Collusion Debunked!

I don't write many reviews but I had to on this particular title. If there is one book that does an amazing job at digging into the whole Trump Russian Collusion hoax this book is it. Not only does it peal back the layers of the hoax but it sheds light on the Obama presidency and just how politically motivated they were. What adds to this story is that Andrew McCarthy was a former intelligence officer with the FBI and knows the protocols that the FBI should be following. There are many other books out there on this subject but this is by far the best for its timeliness and for its in depth knowledge of the workings of the FBI.
