An explosive exposé that lays out the story behind the Steele Dossier, including Russia’s decades-in-the-making political game to upend American democracy and the Trump administration’s ties to Moscow.
“Harding…presents a powerful case for Russian interference, and Trump campaign collusion, by collecting years of reporting on Trump’s connections to Russia and putting it all together in a coherent narrative.” —The Nation
December 2016. Luke Harding, the Guardian reporter and former Moscow bureau chief, quietly meets former MI6 officer Christopher Steele in a London pub to discuss President-elect Donald Trump’s Russia connections. A month later, Steele’s now-famous dossier sparks what may be the biggest scandal of the modern era. The names of the Americans involved are well-known—Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page—but here Harding also shines a light on powerful Russian figures like Aras Agalarov, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and Sergey Kislyak, whose motivations and instructions may have been coming from the highest echelons of the Kremlin.
Drawing on new material and his expert understanding of Moscow and its players, Harding takes the reader through every bizarre and disquieting detail of the “Trump-Russia” story—an event so huge it involves international espionage, off-shore banks, sketchy real estate deals, the Miss Universe pageant, mobsters, money laundering, poisoned dissidents, computer hacking, and the most shocking election in American history.

Short, concise ... hope there is a part two
This book is a page turner. I read it in one sitting. It is a very good expose on how the Russian oligarchy operates and gives the reader a good outline of Trump-Russia connection. I assume part two will tie all the loose ends up, after Muller finishes his take-down.
Exceptional reporting - a historic work of non-fiction
This book doesn’t just shed new light on the web of connections between Trump and Russian spies and corrupt financiers, it fully exposes the undeniable collusion between the 45th president of the U.S. and Putin’s cronies. With airtight and intriguing details woven into a fully coherent narrative, Collusion, is a riveting piece of writing destined to play a pivotal role in the fate of Donald J. Trump and American politics.
I very gripping book on the Russian plans to undermine the president of the United States
