Tis is in many ways a sad tail of ambition, weak men, political operatives & hubris ridden bureaucrats. The end result IF this type of activity is not punished and roundly condemned by ALL Americans could be a desent into Solzhenitsyn's G.U.L.A.G type of Deep State government run by unaccountable political appointees and bureaucrats.
Elections are just for show like many trials in the old USSR. The in power Party is the power NOT the individual voting citizens. In the end this book is about exposing the pernicious activities of those who would place themselves above the voting citizens of America. ALL Americans should be aware of those forces seen and unseen that seek to injure our Constitutional Republic. This book is footnoted extensively lest anyone believes it is a polemic political offering.
Well sourced, it has literally hundreds of footnotes, generally with active links so you can review quoted passages in their full original context online.
The writing flows well, almost like a spy novel at times, except that it all actually happened.
The chapters work well together, but each can stand alone if you want to look at a particular topic.
There is so much information that it may take multiple readings to digest it all.
It may prove to be a valuable reference book as more information comes out from various investigations and upcoming declassifications.
It will help you distinguish opinion from fact in the news and social media.
The authors do not tell you what to think, but instead give you the tools to look more critically at what most news outlets cover only superficially.
This book is a great gift to the nation at large, because well-informed voters are the guardians of our constitutional republic.
The book does an excellent job of making sense of all the hoo-hah and conflicting/obfuscated/often-fake media reports that have trickled out over the past two years, not to mention all the partisan punditry that will yank you this way or that. The author is a former cop, Federal agent and Secret Service agent in the presidential protective detail, so he knows a thing or two about building a case and distilling evidence down to the essentials. And while he has his own conclusion, he presents facts, events and timelines in a compelling and generally even-handed way so you can draw your own. The book is richly footnoted, with citations you can call up as desired.
Recommended for anyone curious about "Spygate" scandal and its chilling import for the country.
My one complaint about the book is its physical format on the Kindle: its text is "justified", meaning it has even left and right borders, but this means there is odd spacing between words. I much prefer left-justified formatting with consistent spacing and a ragged right border, but the Kindle edition does not support this. There are also some unusual changes of font to signify transitions from summary to detail and so on. I'm sure the dead-trees edition is a little easier on the eyes.
If you, or someone you know, needs a guide to why news is important, this book is organized by subject. That means chapters can be read in ANY order.
I'm getting this book in all three formats.
Makes me feel sorry for the people who have tried so hard to bring down Trump. They are exposed by the very leaks they thought would run him. It must be so disappointing. All they really have left is rage, making them fodder for Trump's wit: “You Don’t Hand Matches To An Arsonist And You Don’t Give Power To An Angry Left-Wing Mob”
My pitty isn't lasting long.
Having read the book, it will now be a great reference to go back and remind me of some of the details behind the players and their role in this criminal enterprise known as “Spygate.”
Dan’s podcast continues to give up-to-date, clear analysis as this scandal unfolds.

Push back against the liberal left
Great fact book, but Dan Bongino is no Storyteller in this book.
Since the Dept of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz published a report a lot of the facts in this book are clarified and confirmed. And i assume a lot to come with the U.S. Attorney John Durham’s Report.
So Bongino nailed it long before.
Then watching Donald Trump speak his way through the primaries was absolutely entertaining. I liked his brazen style which is so unlike any US politician who know for the saying a lot and meaning nothing.
I had a gut feeling back then that the media was being absolutely unfair to him, particularly as I began to turn to alternative media and radio shows like the author's now famous podcast "The Dan Bangino Show".
I was immediately hooked, and it was right away the most anticipated podcast I awaited. The author is extremely articulate and interesting. The show is absolutely riveting.
I have been eagerly awaiting for the release of this book. Sometimes the names thrown around in an audio podcast can get confusing and lost...
I have already read a few pages and the style of writing too is easy to follow and straight to the points.
The book is a gem if you really want to get to understanding the truth of the supposedly "Russian Collusion", something that the Mainstream Media has been working hard to pin on President Trump.
This is a must read book, it's has good as any Political Thriller, sadly this is not fictional and the villains are still loose, hopefully for not too long...
