New York Times Best Seller

An Explosive, Revelatory Assessment of the Greatest Betrayal in American History, Newly Revised and Updated

William Barr, Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Steve Bannon, Rudy Giuliani, Mitch McConnell, Roger Stone, George Papadopoulos, Jeff Sessions, and more!

"Impressive.... A persuasive whodunit narrative." (Washington Post)

In The Plot to Betray America, New York Times best-selling author and renowned intelligence expert Malcolm Nance reveals exactly how President Trump and his inner circle conspired, coordinated, communicated, and eventually strategized to commit the greatest acts of treachery in the history of the United States: Compromising the presidential oath of office in exchange for power and personal enrichment.

Seduced by the promises of riches dangled in front of them by Vladimir Putin, the Trump administration eagerly decided to reap the rewards of the plan to put a Kremlin-friendly crony in the Oval Office. Even after his impeachment, Trump continues to defend Putin and jeopardize American intelligence. And instead of interfering, Trump's powerful Republican allies have done everything they can to facilitate Trump's irreparable damage to national security.

Through in-depth research and interviews with intelligence experts and insiders, Nance charts Trump's deep financial ties to Russia through his family's investments-including those of Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner-and exposes the corrupt behavior of Trump's other double-crossing pro-Moscow associates. In doing so, Nance also draws a portrait of a venal and selfish president, one who willingly sells American national security to dictators, strongmen, and the ultra-rich at the expense, and sometimes the lives, of American citizens.

In this newly revised and updated edition, The Plot to Betray America ultimately sketches the blueprint of the Trump administration's conspiracy against our country-and shows us how we can still fight to defend democracy, protect our national security, and save the Constitution.

Well written, timely book.

Fully represents the truth of Trump's presidency. Let's hope the people of our great country recognise this truth and make sure he does not get a second term. If he prevails and gets a second term our democracy is in great peril. Where is reason in the United States of America..?

Required reading

This book is an excellent source of facts and chronolgy regarding Trump. It should be required reading by all American voters prior to the 2020 election.

Connects a lot of the dots of illegality

There are currently multiple civil and criminal cases being worked on against Donald J Trump and his acolytes. And it wouldn't surprise me if this publication is being used as a reference by the prosecution team, due to the sheer number of criminal acts being investigated.

Well done Malcolm

The book is much better than the reading. I wish he had done it himself. I have a vision disability but am not blind. Reading is quite slow, so I also purchased the book because the spoken delivery could never be tolerated by a Trump fan. This is my criteria. The problem with the US right now is we simply do not listen to each other. And if your point is made so heavy-handedly, it might be lost on the people who most need to hear it. It actually reminded me of porno. Like you're getting the nastiest words spoken visciously. Just lustfully shoving it in your face, drawing out syllables with resentment -- a 'get a load of this' smugness -- assuring that even the most willing and eager ears would be offended. I was. I am terrified for this democracy, and the guy telling this tale knows the subject intimately. Plus he did his research. I was forced to give myself frequent breaks, not just because the story of how our country is being ripped apart is hard to hear, but because Oliver Wyman's reading is so gratuitous. He was rightfully outraged by the subject matter, and it got away from him. I wish he had on balance used a much more matter-of-fact tone, letting the words speak for themselves, so die hard Republicans would stand a chance at getting the message (I would write more but I don't like the note about comment ownership).

A moving and believable story

This story is beautiful and moving. As the author says in an interview at the end of this audiobook, it lends itself well to being read out loud. It has the feel of a long first person narrative told around a camp fire. It touches on important spiritual questions without being preachy. A lot of suspense, too.

Excellent View of what Donald Trump has done.

I have read the last three books by Malcomb. He writes of facts bur makes it interesting and you want to continue to find out what happens. I think he should write another and the downfall of Donald Trump. My opinion is he should go to prison for a very long time. I vote on sending him to Gitmo since he hates Cuba. I believe he is worse than any so called terrorist that is currently there. A total traitor to this nation in every sense.

Scary times

(As posted in GoodReads)
The title itself let me know that it was susceptible to confirmation bias, but the amount of history and factual evidence is phenomenal! Of course, the fact that none of it surprises me speaks to my own political beliefs.
There were facts unknown to me in the past, but I do not doubt them. Overall, it's a concise but complete commentary on down Trump as president, and it scares the sh*t out of me!

The Betrayer in Chief

Another outstanding work by Mr Nance. His writing should inspire all Americans to be best. Pun intended. These years enduring the infantile behavior of the 45th POTUS has done more harm than any nuclear weapon could have inflicted. We are a divided nation and I sadly do not see it getting any better. On this day, December 13th, 2019, articles of impeachment have been drawn against 45 by the House Committee members of Congress. The GOP led Senate majority leader has said they will work with the WH to make this quick. How can the supposed jury, coordinate with the defendant, before trial for the defendants benefit? Invasion of the Body Snatchers indeed!

Great

Malcolm Nance delivers another great read with way too much truth for comfort. Just as with his other books, Mr. Nance details the current attack our nation is under.

Absolutely On Point!

Everything sticks out and up like a sore index finger as you absorb the truth about the Skullduggary imposed on our Country by a man who shouldn't have ever been elected!

I often wondered how such a liar could last as long as he has and the technique called "the fog of Unknowability" properly executed by someone whose not as stupid as everyone thinks explained everything I needed to know about the aforementioned technique that this administration uses.

I plan on listening to this purchase a second time.

Fantastic Read

I like that the Author chose not to Candy coat the going ons with Administration and to revel what the reality of Americans are up against with President Donald Trump . I recommend this book to All of the People to read And take of the blind folder, And un plug your ears this President has sold Your Country And your Freedom.

This is no longer Reagan's America. I loved it but felt sad for my country by it!

Redundant

This book has too much redundant info that is covered in many other books written by Nance and other authors.

Another question of fear

I hope that America will succeed in removing the shame that Donald Trump has put on the country.
