Publisher's Summary

In April 2016, computer technicians at the Democratic National Committee discovered that someone had accessed the organization's computer servers and conducted a theft that is best described as Watergate 2.0. In the weeks that followed, the nation's top computer security experts discovered that the cyber thieves had helped themselves to everything: sensitive documents, emails, donor information, even voice mails.

Soon after, the remainder of the Democratic Party machine, the congressional campaign, the Clinton campaign, and their friends and allies in the media were also hacked. Credit card numbers, phone numbers, and contacts were stolen. In short order, the FBI found that more than 25 state election offices had their voter registration systems probed or attacked by the same hackers.

Western intelligence agencies tracked the hack to Russian spy agencies and dubbed them the Cyber Bears. The media was soon flooded with the stolen information channeled through Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. It was a massive attack on America but the Russian hacks appeared to have a singular goal - elect Donald J. Trump as president of the United States.

New York Times best-selling author and career intelligence officer Malcolm Nance's fast paced real-life spy thriller takes you from Vladimir Putin's rise through the KGB from junior officer to spymaster-in-chief and spells out the story of how he performed the ultimate political manipulation - convincing Donald Trump to abandon 70 years of American foreign policy including the destruction of NATO, cheering the end of the European Union, allowing Russian domination of Eastern Europe, and destroying the existing global order with America at its lead.

The Plot to Hack America is the thrilling true story of how Putin's spy agency, run by the Russian billionaire class, used the promise of power and influence to cultivate Trump as well as his closest aides, the Kremlin Crew, to become unwitting assets of the Russian government. The goal? To put an end to 240 years of free and fair American democratic elections.

    "Short and Terrifying"

    This has little to do with Trump - it's about how Russian cyber warfare and propaganda is light-years ahead of ours. We may have many advantages, but we are blind in some areas. This blindness could end up causing a civil or world war.

    "This Story is a MUST READ!"
    Would you listen to The Plot to Hack America again? Why?

    I am currently re-listening to The Plot to Hack America again. It is very important to understand how the implication that Malcolm Nance listed in his book is now being discovered and reported in today's cable news broadcast. I see Malcolm Nance as a patriot that has the power of intuition and foreshadowing. He has completely given us a road map to the unraveling of the truth of how the Russian has hacked and rigged our 2016 election.


    If you could give The Plot to Hack America a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Putin secret action plan to destroy America from within.

    Story
    "A warning for all democracies. "

    From the book: "By publically choosing a known, dangerous, and proven autocratic adversary who has murdered opponents, killed his own citizens, conducted acts of terrorism, and invaded and seized other nations in violation of global norms, Trump and Pence chose Russia’s values over America’s. It has been said that this election would spell the rise of fascism and end the two-century-long run of American democratic governance. It may be worse than that. The deliberate subversion of America’s interests to those of a hostile adversary has never before been suggested aloud in polite company in the history of this nation."

    "Chilling"

    "Illuminating and scary"

    Nance speaks with the authority decades in counterintel. Lot of necessary facts in this book, but well expressed without bogging down.

    "Telling and chilling"

    This book is a must read for anyone who cares about the future of a free world. The stunning subversion of democracy and freedom by the Russians and their complicit Republican dupes in the US is the start of a world wide journey towards autocracy and subjugation! This book is a wake up call and should not be ignored.

    "Pivotal book"

    l am a big fan of Malcolm Nance, and am very happy to see him every time he pops up on MSNBC for commentary. He is the real deal: from his combat experience, to his wisdom, poise and his former spy mystique. This book is timely and illuminated the topic for me. l had no idea the Russians were watching us so closely. Looking forward to Mr. Nances' next works.
