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 A
amson has tracked every one of these far-flung reports and now, inProof 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 Trumpworked for thirty years to expand his real estate empire into Russia even as hewas rescued from bankruptcy by Putin's oligarchsand Kremlin agents.* How Russian intelligence gatheredcompromising materialon him over multiple trips.* HowTrump recruited Russian allies and business partners while running for president.* How he surrounded himself with advisers who engaged inclandestine negotiations with Russia.* How Trump aides and family members heldsecret meetingswith foreign agents and lied about them.By pulling every last thread of this complicated story together, A
amson argues that - even in the absence of a Congressional investigation or a report from Special Counsel Mueller - thepublic 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 ofit unfolded in plain sight.
