Publisher's Summary

When former FBI Director Robert Mueller III was assigned to the Special Counsel investigation looking into the possibility of Russian interference in the 2016 US election, many Americans felt relieved. But when the report was delivered in April 2019, it was clear that the case was far from closed - and pinning Trump down on conspiracy charges was going to be a lot more difficult than it had first seemed. 

In The Plot to Betray America, Malcolm Nance, New York Times best-selling author and renowned intelligence expert, reveals exactly how Trump and his inner circle conspired, coordinated, communicated, and eventually strategized to commit the greatest act of treachery in the history of the United States: compromising the presidential oath of office in exchange for power and personal enrichment. 

Seduced by the promises of riches dangled in front of them by Vladimir Putin, the Trump administration eagerly decided to reap the rewards of the plan to put a Kremlin-friendly crony in the Oval Office. And instead of interfering, the Republican Party's faithful William Barr, Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Steve Bannon, Rudy Giuliani, Mitch McConnell, Roger Stone, George Papadopoulos, and Jeff Sessions among others did everything they could to facilitate Trump's damage to national security to fill his own pockets. Through in-depth research and interviews with intelligence experts and insiders, Nance charts Trump's deep financial ties to Russia through his family's investments, including those of Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner, and the corrupt behavior of his other double-crossing pro-Moscow associates. 

Only by untangling the spider web of personal and financial relationships linking the White House to the Kremlin can we start to free ourselves from the constricting clutches of our foreign adversaries and work to rebuild our fractured nation. 

In this geopolitical pause-resister, The Plot to Betray America ultimately sketches the tracks and blueprint of the Trump administration's conspiracy against our country - and how we can still fight to defend democracy, protect our national security, and save the Constitution.

Important but depressing read

This book gives more details about the scandals and corruptions around trump. Very depressing to listen but I persisted to the end to hear what the solutions Nance proposes. Trump is a very effective marker. He is so good at spotting and attracting what's corruptible, one just needs to see who support him to know where the rot is. Without him, it'd take much longer to ferret out all the decays. I don't think we can blame Russian disinformation alone. That'd ignore the role of the those who welcome the disinformation and refuse to be persuaded by evidence. Those people remind me of kids being told all their lives that 'they are great/special just the way they are'. Once they left home, their innate specialness got reality checked. It's natural and less painful to seek blame outside oneself. Holding on to the Bible and guns make one feels stronger much quicker and easier than being actually strong.

Absolutely On Point!

Everything sticks out and up like a sore index finger as you absorb the truth about the Skullduggary imposed on our Country by a man who shouldn't have ever been elected!

I often wondered how such a liar could last as long as he has and the technique called "the fog of Unknowability" properly executed by someone whose not as stupid as everyone thinks explained everything I needed to know about the aforementioned technique that this administration uses.

I plan on listening to this purchase a second time.

Great

Malcolm Nance delivers another great read with way too much truth for comfort. Just as with his other books, Mr. Nance details the current attack our nation is under.

Fantastic Read

I like that the Author chose not to Candy coat the going ons with Administration and to revel what the reality of Americans are up against with President Donald Trump . I recommend this book to All of the People to read And take of the blind folder, And un plug your ears this President has sold Your Country And your Freedom.

A warning and realistic accounting

This is no longer Reagan's America. I loved it but felt sad for my country by it!

Malcolm is a cranium cracker!!

Once again Malcolm Nance has shed light on the dark corners of the Trump/Russia saga. For those that have an idea but get lost between the two “truths” of solid journalism and purposeful mis and disinformation, he’s your man. He sounds the alarm (again) and calls us to rise up protect our Democracy from those who would seek to destroy it from the inside out!

Brilliant. Not just the problem, but solutions.

Nance hits another homer with his powerful book about our devolving into autocracy. Not just another book describing the problem, Nance offers practical solutions we can implement to save democracy.

The Truth Matters

Thank you for researching the facts and putting them is a very understandable story. Although a scary story. At the end of the day I am hopeful Truth will win the day. If not history will.

Great book

This is a chilling account of Trump's rise to power and betrayal of our country. Now that impeachment hearing have begun I hope the next book will be more hopeful.

The Betrayer in Chief

Another outstanding work by Mr Nance. His writing should inspire all Americans to be best. Pun intended. These years enduring the infantile behavior of the 45th POTUS has done more harm than any nuclear weapon could have inflicted. We are a divided nation and I sadly do not see it getting any better. On this day, December 13th, 2019, articles of impeachment have been drawn against 45 by the House Committee members of Congress. The GOP led Senate majority leader has said they will work with the WH to make this quick. How can the supposed jury, coordinate with the defendant, before trial for the defendants benefit? Invasion of the Body Snatchers indeed!
