Description

A provocative, comprehensive analysis of Vladimir Putin and Russia's master plan to destroy democracy in the age of Donald Trump.

In the greatest intelligence operation in the history of the world, Donald Trump was made president of the United States with the assistance of a foreign power. For the first time, The Plot to Destroy Democracy reveals the dramatic story of how blackmail, espionage, assassination, and psychological warfare were used by Vladimir Putin and his spy agencies to steal the 2016 US election - and attempted to bring about the fall of NATO, the European Union, and western democracy. It will show how Russia and its fifth column allies tried to flip the cornerstones of democracy in order to reengineer the world political order that kept most of the world free since since 1945.  

Career US Intelligence officer Malcolm Nance will examine how Russia has used cyberwarfare, political propaganda, and manipulating our perception of reality - and will use it again - to weaponize American news, traditional media, social media, and the workings of the Internet to attack and break apart democratic institutions from within and what we can expect to come should we fail to stop their next attack.  

In his 35-year career in intelligence, Nance specialized in cryptology, national security policy, counter-terrorism intelligence. He has utilized top secret Russian-sourced political and hybrid warfare strategy documents to demonstrate the master plan to undermine American institutions that has been in effect from the Cold War to the present day. Based on original research and countless interviews with espionage experts, Nance examines how Putin's recent hacking accomplished a crucial first step for destabilizing the West for Russia, why Putin is just the man to do it.  

Nance has been called to testify before Congress and advise House and Senate Intelligence Committee members on the details of the election meddling. In this audiobook, he exposes how Russia has supported the campaigns of right-wing extremists throughout both the US and Europe to leverage an axis of autocracy, and how Putin's agencies have worked since 2010 to bring fringe candidate Donald Trump into elections.  

Revelatory, insightful, and shocking, The Plot to Destroy Democracy puts a professional spy lens on Putin's plot and unravels it play-by-play. In the end, he provides a better understanding of why Putin's efforts are a serious threat to our national security and global alliances - in much more than one election - and a blistering indictment of Putin's puppet, President Donald J. Trump.

Be afraid, be very afraid!

I could get all cliche and say this book should be required reading, but I won't (Ha! Just did.) The overwhelming message here is that we (the western democracies) are in deep doodoo and our whole way of life (our culture) is under attack by Putin and his oligarchic cronies. And it is not just Trump, who is basically dismissed as a narcissist, functional illiterate, low IQ lapdog for any strongman who scratches him behind his ears. No, the author takes us through each of the European countries and identifies the Putin "running dog" in each one. He opines that if Marine Le Pin had beaten Macron in the French election, then France and the U.S. would have disbanded NATO and initiated a new world order -- The U.S.,France and Russia. If that sounds now too out there to be believed, then it won't after you read Nance. He is certainly no wild left wing conspiracy theorist. This book should be taken very seriously by all people who believe in democracy because it is clearly under attack.

Well worth reading

I initially thought this was going to be mainly about Trump and Putin but it is a very comprehensive study of Russia’s methodical plan to destroy Democracy in all the Wedtern countries. It goes into great detail as to what is happening in each of these countries, the ride of Populism and it’s connections to Russia. Excellent book.#Audible1

Very thorough, detailed, and frightening!

Bought this book after seeing the author on Real Time with Bill Maher and feeling impressed with him. It took me a chapter to get used to the narrator, but I appreciate his knowledge of Russian pronunciations and voice acting. I knew a LOT about the Russian's attempts to destroy global democracies, but not as much as I thought. This book is very in-depth and really gets to the core of the issues facing anyone who values democracy today. It is frightening to understand just how deep things go, and makes every Trump gaff make a lot more sense when you understand everything that led up to today. I highly recommend this book. I just wish I could beam this knowledge into the brains of every citizen of a democracy instantly, particularly Americans. If that were possible, the only supporters that would remain behind Trump, would be pure-bred racists. And I bet even some of them would reconsider their support. Can't recommend enough. And the length of the book was nice. I prefer not to be finished in 3 hrs. Well done Nance!

Book gives historical context to modern events

Everyone should listen to this book. Guard yourself against the disinformation attacks lead by Russia by knowing how they operate and what their goals are.

a must read for any true patriot

A must read document for anyone who's trying to figure out why evangelicals, Republican Congress, NRA and Trump are working on behalf of the Russian government.

OH NOOOO

I read this book and thought is was good but a little bit “conspiracy theory” . Then I watched the Putin/Trump press conference! Everything he predicted would happen is starting to happen. Help!

Wow!

This is a fantastic, important and scary book. If only 50% of it is true (and I have no reason to doubt any of it), this country is in serious trouble. It will take the will of ALL of the people to fix it.

We Need to Regain Control of Our Country

I've said since 2016, as things have gotten worse and worse, stranger and stranger, that if anyone had written a book about it in the past, I'd have thought it too unbelievable even for fiction, and wanted my money back. Sadly, this is not fiction. What keeps it from looking like another conspiracy theory is 1) The knowledge, experience, and trustworthiness of Malcolm Nance and 2) We're seeing it happen right in front of our eyes. And despite what the usurper tells us, I WILL believe what I see.

We wonder why the GOP Congress is not doing its check and balance job. The fact is that Russia set this in motion years ago. Many in the GOP have been compromised, and are therefore being complicit with Putin's agenda. I highly recommend that you read this book for the details of how this mess was brought about. It's well written and well narrated, and very informative.

We must vote in the 2018 midterms and take back Congress so we can take back our country!

Should be required reading

Make sure to read this outstanding book as soon as possible, but definitely before the 2020 elections. Importantly, you will hear shocking details about things we normally take for granted. Personally, I now believe that our democracy is at more risk than I ever thought before. After reading this, I am deeply concerned about the future of our country. I'm a retired US Navy Officer, and formerly held a top secret security clearance with some knowledge of foreign intelligence operations.

Important to hear

This book has way more detailed information than I needed, but it’s probably needed to give any credence to what would otherwise seem to be some pretty outrageous conclusions.

Thing you never knew

Found this to be very informative. In the age of Putin invading the Ukraine and the Bloviator in Chief, Donny Trump, It is an excellent narrative of how we got here. The list of players is exhaustive, and hearing the trail of events from an inside player like McFaul is enlightening.
