Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win

We rated this book:


Donald Trump’s business dealings have been the subject of rumors for decades, particularly when it comes to criminal activities and potential Russian investment, so it’s no surprise that they have contributed to one of the dominating narratives of his presidency thus far. But when you start digging, truly digging, the question isn’t about finding the fire causing all this smoke…it’s about who set the fire in the first place.

For people expecting a Trump witch hunt or a takedown of the controversial 45th president, look elsewhere. This is a scholarly deep dive, an investigative exploration about Russia’s interest in him, how men like Paul Manafort, Carter Page, and others served the Russian agenda, how the Steele Dossier came to be, and how all these complex connections drew together during the most divisive presidency in history. And Harding delivers one hell of a narrative here.

Trump himself, though a driving force of the book, is rarely the subject. In fact, until he fires James Comey, he’s a background player, important but just outside the microscope’s lens.

Collusion fundamentally understands something that eludes Trump supporters, detractors, and even Trump himself: he is only part of the story.
