Publisher's Summary

For the first time, the full, explosive record of the unthinkable: how a US President compromised American foreign policy in exchange for the promise of future business and covert election assistance.

Looking back at this moment in history, historians will ask if Americans knew they were living through the first case of criminal conspiracy between an American presidential candidate turned commander in chief and a geopolitical enemy. The answer might be: it was hard to see the whole picture. The stories coming in from around the globe have often seemed fantastical: clandestine meetings in foreign capitals, secret recordings in a Moscow hotel, Kremlin agents infiltrating the Trump inner circle....

Seth Abramson has tracked every one of these far-flung reports, and now, in Proof of Collusion, he finally gives us a record of the unthinkable - a President compromising American foreign policy in exchange for the promise of future business and covert election assistance. The attorney, professor and former criminal investigator has used his exacting legal mind and forensic acumen to compile, organise and analyse every piece of the Trump-Russia story. His conclusion is clear: the case for collusion is staring us in the face. Drawing from American and European news outlets, he takes readers through the Trump-Russia scandal chronologically, putting the developments in context and showing how they connect. His extraordinary march through all the public evidence includes:

  • How Trump worked for 30 years to expand his real estate empire into Russia even as he was rescued from bankruptcy by Putin’s oligarchs and Kremlin agents.
  • How Russian intelligence gathered compromising material on him over multiple trips.
  • How Trump recruited Russian allies and business partners while running for president.
  • How he surrounded himself with advisers who engaged in clandestine negotiations with Russia.
  • How Trump aides and family members held secret meetings with foreign agents and lied about them.

By pulling every last thread of this complicated story together, Abramson argues that - even in the absence of a congressional investigation or a report from Special Counsel Mueller - the public record already indicates a quid pro quo between Trump and the Kremlin. The most extraordinary part of the case for collusion is that so much of it unfolded in plain sight.

Good read

You'll probably learn a lot about the election and pre-election times. It's certainly all very interesting. My only complaint is that the writing seems very repetitive. Several times I thought I had hit rewind by accident, but really it was just the same material being re-emphasized. I think in the future the author should trust the memory of the reader a bit more.
