Publisher Description

Washington insiders operate by a proven credo: when a Peter Schweizer book drops, duck and brace for impact. 

For over a decade, the work of five-time New York Times bestselling investigative reporter Peter Schweizer has sent shockwaves through the political universe. 

Clinton Cash revealed the Clintons’ international money flow, exposed global corruption, and sparked an FBI investigation. Secret Empires exposed bipartisan corruption and launched congressional investigations. And Throw Them All Out and Extortion prompted passage of the STOCK Act. Indeed, Schweizer’s “follow the money” bombshell revelations have been featured on the front pages of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, and regularly appear on national news programs, including 60 Minutes.

Now Schweizer and his team of seasoned investigators turn their focus to the nation’s top progressives—politicians who strive to acquire more government power to achieve their political ends.

Can they be trusted with more power?

In Profiles in Corruption, Schweizer offers a deep-dive investigation into the private finances, and secrets deals of some of America’s top political leaders. And, as usual, he doesn’t disappoint, with never-before-reported revelations that uncover corruption and abuse of power—all backed up by a mountain of corporate documents and legal filings from around the globe. Learn about how they are making sweetheart deals, generating side income, bending the law to their own benefits, using legislation to advance their own interests, and much more.

Profiles in Corruption contains tomorrow’s headlines.

Read before you vote!

A must read for all American voters! These elected officials are using their power & influence to gain vast amounts of wealth & favors for themselves, their families, their friends & donors while hypocritically campaigning for social justice & the middle class!

I was shocked & dismayed to read about Kamala Harris using her DA office to circumvent the law in order to help her donors & friends at the expense of victims & pensioners. Senator Harris is beholden to many just not the taxpayers.

For his entire political career Joe Biden & his family & extended family members have leveraged his name & the power of his elected positions to enrich his family using both taxpayer & foreign money.

Cory Booker used his mayoral powers to fund his donors with contracts & city funds. He is currently funding his lobbying friends’ efforts from his senate seat. He is at best a phony.

Elizabeth Warren (while basing her presidential campaign as looking out for the middle class ) funded her million dollar portfolio as an legal advocate for big corporations at the expense of asbestos victims & pensioners. Elizabeth Warren’s daughter’s consulting firm has benefited financially garnering clients because of Warren’s senate legislation. She currently has large corporate donors irrespective of what she says on the campaign trail. She clearly has credibility issues with words versus actions.

Socialist & career politicians, Bernie Sanders’ wife & daughter have profited from his elected office via her failed Burlington College (FBI investigating this) venture. Bernie’s friend & donor has gotten many lucrative tax credits & benefits for his “clean energy” business in Vermont. $83 million dollars of Bernie’s 2016 presidential campaign donations is funneled to a media-buying shell company with ties to Bernie’s wife.

1998 Amy Klobuchar during her tenure as chief prosecutor chose to not prosecute the 2nd largest Ponzi schemer in Minnesota because the perpetrator was a donor & friend to her & her mentor Walter Mondale. Not until 2009 was the schemer brought to justice. Amy uses her senate legislative powers to extract millions of dollars of donations from corporations who want her to introduce laws in their favor. She continues to help lobbyists & donors alike & is prolific @ corporate campaign fundraising.
