Summary of Russian Roulette

On the January 6, 2017, intelligence agencies briefed Donald Trump about Russia's role in getting him elected as a president. Further, then FBI Director James Comey let him know that the intelligence agencies also had material to indicate that Trump had joined forces with Moscow for this turn of events since Russian entities had blackmailed him with the help of the footage they had of him with prostitutes and other stuff. They also warned him that the media might disclose this information to the public. It enraged Trump. He thought the agencies were blackmailing him and was determined not to be blackmailed.

The rage set the stage for his presidency and how it would unfold. Even though this issue and the investigations pertaining to it acquired the status of a significant scandal, Trump did not consider the issue to be real, and any investigations pertaining to it seemed to him like attempts to cause him harm. However, this scandal went way back. Trump had sought business deals in Russia and this even went on during the initial months of his presidential campaign. This left an impact on how Trump would interact with Putin.

I was left thinking, there's gotta be more.

I thought I would save a little time and money here. Sometimes with these summaries, this works. Given what I have seen of the original work, I think it didn't really work very well here, for my purposes. I felt the telling here was too fleeting. I didn't get a sense of who these Russians really are, for example. Saying pretty flatly they are linked to Putin doesn't tell me much. I need to see other deals that provide a meaningful story, and some anecdotes to get a feel for the people and situations.
