Now updated with new information about efforts to interfere with the 2020 election and Donald Trump’s obstruction of justice.

It has been called the political crime of the century: a foreign government, run by a brutal authoritarian leader, secretly interfering with the American presidential election to help elect the candidate of its choice. Now Greg Miller, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter at the Washington Post, drawing upon hundreds of exclusive interviews and confidential documents, uncovers the truth about the Kremlin’s covert attempt to help Trump win the presidency, the fate of the Mueller investigation, the Ukrainian “quid-pro-quo”, ongoing White House attempts to cover up evidence, and Trump’s continuing deference to Vladimir Putin’s wishes.


“A vital contribution to our understanding of how we got here.” —Charles Kaiser, The Guardian


“Painstakingly researched. . . . An exhaustive and authoritative case.” —Salon


Miller puts it all together.” —Kai Bird, Washington Post

Praise For…

“Lucid and startling…a scathing portrait of the commander-in-chief’s personal and political failings, compounded by the dismal inability of other politicians and institutions to get to grips with the abundant evidence of Russian meddling….The book is the clearest account yet of what Russia actually did.” — Times (UK)

“We cannot understand what happened in the 2016 election, Russia-gate or the imploding Trump presidency by reading the 24-hour digital news on our phones....Fortunately, we still have a simple technology invented nearly six centuries ago: books. Greg Miller has written a damn good one.” — Kai Bird, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian
