Publisher's Summary

Is the 45th president of the United States under the control of a foreign power? Award-winning Associated Press reporter Seth Hettena untangles the story of Donald Trump's long involvement with Russia in damning detail - including new reporting never before published.

As Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the relationship between members of Trump's campaign and Russian operatives continues, there is growing evidence that Trump has spent decades cultivating ties to corrupt Russians and the post-Soviet state. 

In Trump/Russia: A Definitive History, Seth Hettena chronicles the many years Trump has spent wooing Russian money and power. From the collapse of his casino empire - which left Trump desperate for cash - and his first contacts with Russian deal makers and financiers, on up to the White House, Hettena reveals the myriad of shady people, convoluted dealings, and strange events that suggest how indebted to Russia our 45th president might be. 

Using deeply researched reporting, along with newly uncovered information, court documents, and exclusive interviews with investigators and FBI agents, Hettena provides an expansive and essential primer to the Trump/Russia scandal, leaving no stone unturned.

This book provides important context.

Hettena maps out in riveting detail the Trump terra incognita. I can read Mueller indictments with far greater understanding. This is must read/listen.

An eye Opener

How intricate and complex the collusion is, but this book maps it out so it is easy to understand. This book also shows you how the Russians are laundering their dirty money and how Trump is involved.

GRIFTER, DEBUNKED Conspiracy Theorist, propagandist etc.,

One of the harmful books that helped polarize America while at the same time being a stenographer for the democrat party. All along the way making millions unapologetically being a merchant of misinformation. There are not enough words to describe the damage perpetrated upon America and it’s institutions.

Best on this topic!

This is by far the best and most detailed accounting of this subject. Very informative and best of all, not so dense as to lose the listeners interest.

Lots of interesting information

I was fascinated by this topic and really wanted to love the book. I did enjoy it but have a few comments:
Trump is the main reason for reading this and there was too much time spent on the deep background of the other characters. I would have appreciated more on Trump's interaction with these people.

The book's last 3 hours were the best and detailed the Steele Dossier, Mueller and other important events. However the book just seemed to end. It provided a great deal of information and seemed to leave it up the the reader to connect the dots. I would have liked some sort of concluding chapter. The author clearly had done his homework and I would have welcomed more of his opinion on Trump and Russia.

Book name is only attention seeking...

Actual content is about mobs in various countries and very little mention of Trump. my guess is author is a liberal upset that Trump made America a great place to call home. But along with freedom of speech comes piles you walk around, don't waste your time with this book. I suffered thru to leave this review so you don't have to.

Loved It!!!!

Rather than the just being focused on Trump -bashing, the book shows some balance. The patterns are disturbing. However, the author points out intelligence services are trained to undermine people’s confidence in their countries political processes.

Dull

This book manages to take a simple premise and stretch it out for several hours. The first chapter is interesting. The second less so. By the third I no longer cared.

Interesting read

This was a very interesting and intriguing listen. We know Trump is a villain, but this reveals how dirty he really is and should have been in prison years ago! Well worth the 8+ hours of listening.

Misinformation 101.

This is full of misinformation, frightening what you've made people believe here with none of it being true.

Do better.

Now Found Baseless

Recent investigations have found it a complete fabrication .. the Trump Russia collusion. Hence this book has been found to be totally untrue.

In God we trust .

The author well and truely researched his book, I would suggest that all Americans should read or listen to this book. A book that shows the failure of their American President to uphold the laws of his country, your country if your from the USA.

This points out the fall of the republic one that’s fraught long and hard to achieve a good rep.
