Publisher's Summary

The comprehensive story of how the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton campaign, and foreign entities tried to sabotage the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election.

Everyone has an opinion about whether or not Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. The number of actors involved is staggering, the events are complicated, and it’s hard to know who or what to believe. Spygate bypasses opinion and brings facts together to expose the greatest political scandal in American history.

Former Secret Service agent and NYPD police officer Dan Bongino joins forces with journalist D.C. McAllister to clear away fake news and show you how Trump’s political opponents, both foreign and domestic, tried to sabotage his campaign and delegitimize his presidency. By following the names and connections of significant actors, the authors reveal:

  • Why the Obama administration sent a spy connected to the Deep State into the Trump campaign 
  • How Russians were connected to the opposition research firm hired by the Clinton campaign to find dirt on Trump
  • How the FBI failed to examine DNC computers after they were hacked, relying instead on the findings of a private company connected to the DNC and the Obama administration
  • Why British intelligence played a role in building the collusion narrative
  • What role Ukrainians played in legitimizing the perception that Trump was conspiring with the Russians
  • How foreign players in the two events that kick-started the Trump-Russia collusion investigation were connected to the Clinton Foundation
  • What motivated the major actors who sought to frame the Trump campaign and secure a win for Hillary Clinton

Russia collusion myth ... it's all in here

What a great read. A bit cumbersome at times with lots of dates, names, acronyms continually flowing over the pages, but such is it's nature because Dan does an awesome job of using references and quotes from heaps of public sources (media, Senate hearing transcripts etc...) to back his argument. This is definitely not an opinion read ... the references and quotes are unending and thorough. All of his conclusions are based on public source references. One interesting point to come out of the book is that the whole Russia collusion myth is not a diabolical plot orchestrated by a single evil mastermind dude (so to speak), more rather an organic fusion and intersection of various players with their own selfish interests at heart, continually morphing and evolving the false narrative of an alleged Russian collusion. Many of these players (most of them top heavy) including former President Barack Obama have s lot to answer for once Mueller's investigation is finished, because then President Trump will have a freer hand to investigate potential indictments on these players, e.g. the Hillary Clinton email scandal left uninvestigated (an obvious example). Should Trump win the House in 2020 there will be others. Mueller's investigation is likely to come up empty handed with at best charges of perjury laid at anyone who falls for one of the perjury traps ... so if you wanna get your head around the Russia collusion myth. Read this book and follow Dan on Twitter. He continually updates and interprets what's really going on as the whole false narrative evolves ... ( you won't get that from MSM) ... HIGHLY RECOMMEND !

The CLINTON FOUNDATION EXPOSED

This is a brilliant, accurate, in-depth account of the corruption (I don't think any other word can describe this) of the Clinton Foundation and the lengths the Clinton's (under the watch of Barack Obama) would go to discredit/destroy an honest American entering into the depths of US congress swamp by weaponizing high ranking 'FBI' and 'Department Of Justice' officials. The use of allied foreign spy agencies to bypass their inability to spy on an American citizen. It is horrific to say the least. The one thing I noticed about Dan Bongino's book is the fact he's used an incredible amount of media outlets (as sources) who openly denounce the 45th President, to support the claims made throughout the Spygate book. The facts are hard hitting and undeniable, and not the rantings of a conspiracist. If this horrendous injustice only gets uncovered as far as the release of this book, then there is absolutely no hope for truth, freedom and justice. Do yourselves a favor and READ IT! - I have both the signed hardcopy and audio book.

I [quote] Can't Take it [end quote]

The good - This is probably the most intricate and seemingly complete detailing of the Russia-Trump "Collusion" investigation, that I am aware of, to date. It picks apart everything I thought I understood about how the case came to be. It is truly interesting how manipulative people in power can be, how deceptive and devious those working for government are, when they want to be. It should be scary for everyone, even those that are rooting for the investigation to turn up something, anything. You may like the conduct now, but you won't like it when the tides turn and you are on the receiving end. This book is the best way to make it clear that this brand of government and law enforcement conduct, choosing the winners and losers, is so very dangerous for us all.
The bad - sort of - This is so in the weeds with the minutiae of how it all came about, distractions of any kind magnify the interruption (at least for me). If my mind wandered even for a second, I lost track of the tenuous hold I had in understanding what was being said and needed to retrace my steps. This is kind of a good problem to have because it does go to the depth of the detailed information being conveyed.
The ugly - if not down right, SHOW STOPPING, [quote] Make it Stop [end quote] because [quote] it is very distracting [end quote]. I continue [quote] Reading every quote and end quote [end quote] causes much annoyance and distraction for the [quote] reader [end quote]. OK... so you have no idea what that is about? Well, imagine passage after passage, page after page where Dan Bongino who is the author and narrator/reader, actually reads EVERY quote symbol, end quote symbol, and parenthesized entry. My conclusion is that he has seriously and HORRIBLY, to the point of destroying the book, OVERUSED QUOTATIONS. It is possible to overuse quotes when you are writing Informational Text as opposed to a Factual or Official Reports. In some places, he literally quotes and end quotes 1 word separated by a word and then quotes one or 2 more words e.g.: The writer [quote] CLAIMS [end quote] it's [quote] necessary and justified [end quote] to use peoples actual words in order to [quote] add credibility [end quote] to the text. - That is my own made up sentence because I couldn't stand the thought of actually quoting one of his. When you overuse quotations to stress a single word or to take the place of the incredulous eye roll, you risk breaking up your flow and taking away from our own observations or points of the text. It is ESPECIALLY not good in an AUDIO BOOK. Use inflection and pauses if you must, but DO NOT READ PUNCTUATION.

Skeptical at Second #1 but a Believer at Second #2

I remember when I first found the Dan Bongino show. It was right after the Mueller investigation began and when I first started to dive into politics. I heard him for my first time on his podcast and thought there is a conspiracy in the midst. Then all the pieces started falling into place. This book is gold, with facts, names, and dates to back inner workings to out candidate Donald Trump and then President Trump. If you're like me and don't have time to pick up a book to read, I highly recommend buying the audible version. Good narration and an addictive and compelling truth bomb.

Brilliant work.

Man, these guys did their homework. It’s unbelievable what so many in the previous Admin tried to do, just to win an election. And today, so many are still trying to cover up for them. It’s apparent our Media is either complicit, or willingly negligent.

Factual Look at the Real Russia Scandal

Great book. Very well done. Clear, deep-dive into the facts surrounding the Trump/Russia scandal and the Mueller probe. Trump could be guilty, or it could be the other way around... The facts laid out in Bongino's book make it obvious. Love that it's read by the author! Worth a listen no matter what side of the aisle you're on!

Revealing, thorough, spot on

The timeline is like a police report, easy to follow and jump back and forth in without losing track.

this book must have a ton of hours of research and then some!

Well done and a must read for ALL but for Democrats in particular.

Thank you From Sweden!

A parcel of rogues in a nation.

I listen to Dan and Joe daily on Dan’s podcast, quote “the Dan Bongino show” end quote. You get the joke Dan. I thoroughly enjoyed all the elements of Dan’s daily narratives on this subject being tied together in this excellent chronological manner. The characters (of whom I have come to know so well, remember the names) all coming into play as this awful conspiracy took shape. Thanks Dan and to your co-authors. looking forward to volume two as you inform us of what sentences, hopefully lengthy, these abhorrent high level conspirators receive. Gordon (Scotland).
