Publisher's Summary

The comprehensive story of how the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton campaign, and foreign entities tried to sabotage the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election.

Everyone has an opinion about whether or not Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. The number of actors involved is staggering, the events are complicated, and it’s hard to know who or what to believe. Spygate bypasses opinion and brings facts together to expose the greatest political scandal in American history.

Former Secret Service agent and NYPD police officer Dan Bongino joins forces with journalist D.C. McAllister to clear away fake news and show you how Trump’s political opponents, both foreign and domestic, tried to sabotage his campaign and delegitimize his presidency. By following the names and connections of significant actors, the authors reveal:

  • Why the Obama administration sent a spy connected to the Deep State into the Trump campaign 
  • How Russians were connected to the opposition research firm hired by the Clinton campaign to find dirt on Trump
  • How the FBI failed to examine DNC computers after they were hacked, relying instead on the findings of a private company connected to the DNC and the Obama administration
  • Why British intelligence played a role in building the collusion narrative
  • What role Ukrainians played in legitimizing the perception that Trump was conspiring with the Russians
  • How foreign players in the two events that kick-started the Trump-Russia collusion investigation were connected to the Clinton Foundation
  • What motivated the major actors who sought to frame the Trump campaign and secure a win for Hillary Clinton

Critic Reviews

“An explosive account of the biggest scandal in American history, and the political players that tried to pull it off.” (Sean Hannity)

Amazing. Great work by Dan. I also listen to Dan Bongino Podcast. Highly Recommend. I like how he shares his insight from his previous job as a Secret Service Federal Agent.

Skeptical at Second #1 but a Believer at Second #2

I remember when I first found the Dan Bongino show. It was right after the Mueller investigation began and when I first started to dive into politics. I heard him for my first time on his podcast and thought there is a conspiracy in the midst. Then all the pieces started falling into place. This book is gold, with facts, names, and dates to back inner workings to out candidate Donald Trump and then President Trump. If you're like me and don't have time to pick up a book to read, I highly recommend buying the audible version. Good narration and an addictive and compelling truth bomb.

I [quote] Can't Take it [end quote]

The good - This is probably the most intricate and seemingly complete detailing of the Russia-Trump "Collusion" investigation, that I am aware of, to date. It picks apart everything I thought I understood about how the case came to be. It is truly interesting how manipulative people in power can be, how deceptive and devious those working for government are, when they want to be. It should be scary for everyone, even those that are rooting for the investigation to turn up something, anything. You may like the conduct now, but you won't like it when the tides turn and you are on the receiving end. This book is the best way to make it clear that this brand of government and law enforcement conduct, choosing the winners and losers, is so very dangerous for us all.
The bad - sort of - This is so in the weeds with the minutiae of how it all came about, distractions of any kind magnify the interruption (at least for me). If my mind wandered even for a second, I lost track of the tenuous hold I had in understanding what was being said and needed to retrace my steps. This is kind of a good problem to have because it does go to the depth of the detailed information being conveyed.
The ugly - if not down right, SHOW STOPPING, [quote] Make it Stop [end quote] because [quote] it is very distracting [end quote]. I continue [quote] Reading every quote and end quote [end quote] causes much annoyance and distraction for the [quote] reader [end quote]. OK... so you have no idea what that is about? Well, imagine passage after passage, page after page where Dan Bongino who is the author and narrator/reader, actually reads EVERY quote symbol, end quote symbol, and parenthesized entry. My conclusion is that he has seriously and HORRIBLY, to the point of destroying the book, OVERUSED QUOTATIONS. It is possible to overuse quotes when you are writing Informational Text as opposed to a Factual or Official Reports. In some places, he literally quotes and end quotes 1 word separated by a word and then quotes one or 2 more words e.g.: The writer [quote] CLAIMS [end quote] it's [quote] necessary and justified [end quote] to use peoples actual words in order to [quote] add credibility [end quote] to the text. - That is my own made up sentence because I couldn't stand the thought of actually quoting one of his. When you overuse quotations to stress a single word or to take the place of the incredulous eye roll, you risk breaking up your flow and taking away from our own observations or points of the text. It is ESPECIALLY not good in an AUDIO BOOK. Use inflection and pauses if you must, but DO NOT READ PUNCTUATION.

Great info/breakdown of dirty dealings in the Gov

I listen to Dan Bongino's podcast so I was already familiar with a lot of the info in the book but there's more info in the book, stuff that he hasn't talked about the podcast. I listened to the audio version (narrated by Bongino) and while it was a lot of info, it was done in a way that didn't bore me and kept me engaged. Would definitely recommend it for those that want to find out what parts of our Government has been getting away with.

So in depth, unbelievable journalistic research!

Dan Bongino his one out of the park with this book. The maze of deception he unwinds is both mind boggling and scarey. It's a must read!

easy to follow along

The narration is fantastic, the 'story' is frightening and the timeline is easy to follow. Great book. too bad for our country that it's true. Thank you for taking the time to gather the facts.

A parcel of rogues in a nation.

I listen to Dan and Joe daily on Dan’s podcast, quote “the Dan Bongino show” end quote. You get the joke Dan. I thoroughly enjoyed all the elements of Dan’s daily narratives on this subject being tied together in this excellent chronological manner. The characters (of whom I have come to know so well, remember the names) all coming into play as this awful conspiracy took shape. Thanks Dan and to your co-authors. looking forward to volume two as you inform us of what sentences, hopefully lengthy, these abhorrent high level conspirators receive. Gordon (Scotland).
