The incredible, harrowing account of how American democracy was hacked by Moscow as part of a covert operation to influence the U.S. election and help Donald Trump gain the presidency.
RUSSIAN ROULETTE is a story of political skullduggery unprecedented in American history. It weaves together tales of international intrigue, cyber espionage, and superpower rivalry. After U.S.-Russia relations soured, as Vladimir Putin moved to reassert Russian strength on the global stage, Moscow trained its best hackers and trolls on U.S. political targets and exploited WikiLeaks to disseminate information that could affect the 2016 election.
The Russians were wildly successful and the great break-in of 2016 was no "third-rate burglary." It was far more sophisticated and sinister -- a brazen act of political espionage designed to interfere with American democracy. At the end of the day, Trump, the candidate who pursued business deals in Russia, won. And millions of Americans were left wondering, what the hell happened? This story of high-tech spying and multiple political feuds is told against the backdrop of Trump's strange relationship with Putin and the curious ties between members of his inner circle -- including Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn -- and Russia.
RUSSIAN ROULETTE chronicles and explores this bizarre scandal, explains the stakes, and answers one of the biggest questions in American politics: How and why did a foreign government infiltrate the country's political process and gain influence in Washington?

The Endless, dense and complex information that is the Russian Investigation is Masterfully organized and cleverly communicated by the authors. There are also new facts, situations and liaisons that were previously unknown. Grateful to the authors & publisher. We needed this. Sincerely @lonestarmomcom Melanie in Texas 😊🇺🇸
The Leftist Equivalent of Birtherism
Fanatics like David Corn are so heavily invested in the Trump-Russia narrative that they just won’t let go of it long after everyone else has moved on. They remind me of the birthers during the Obama era, just clinging desperately to the story despite zero evidence to support it.
It would have been nice if Corn & co. had shown this concern when the hot mike caught Obama assuring Dmitri Medvedev that he would have more freedom to do as he liked after the 2012 election!
It would have been nice if Leftists and liberals had shown this much concern during the Cold War, when Russia was actively attempting to subvert our country from within and facilitate its destruction!
