Summary
"Now that every detail and argument set forth in the #1 New York Times bestseller The Russia Hoax has been borne out by the Mueller report, the author is back with a hard-hitting, well-reasoned evisceration of what may be the dirtiest trick in political history"--, Provided by publisherHow did a small group of powerful intelligence officials convince tens of millions of Americans that the president is a traitor--without a shred of evidence? Now that every detail and argument set forth in the number on New York Times bestseller The Russia Hoax has been borne out by the Mueller Report, the author is back with a hard-hitting, well-reasoned evisceration of possibly the dirtiest trick in political history. What people tend to forget about witch hunts is that they require people in power to believe there really are witches. No marks have ever been as gullible as distraught Democrats in 2016. Washington insiders broke rule after rule investigating the president, chasing a conspiracy that turned out not to exist. Somehow this was spun into Donald Trump having something to hide. People associated with the president were pushed into plea deals that had nothing to do with Russian "collusion" or were discouraged from serving by a threat of huge legal bills. Somehow this was spun into Trump's lawyers being bullies. The president complained that the investigation was a waste of time, but he allowed it to continue unimpeded to the end. Somehow this was spun itno obstruction of justice. In Witch Hunt, Gregg Jarrett uncovers the bureaucratic malfeasance and malicious politicization of our country's justice system. The law was weaponized for partisan purposes. Even though it was Hillary Clinton's campaign that collected and disseminated a trove of lies about Trump from a former British spy and Russian operatives, Democrats and the media spun this into a claim that Trump was working for the Russians. Senior officials at the FBI, blinded by their political bias and hatred of Trump, went after the wrong person. At the Department of Justice, the deputy attorney general discussed secretly recording the president and recruiting members of the cabinet to depose Trump. Those behind the witch hunt either have been fired or resigned. Many of them are now under investigation for abuse of power. But what about the pundits who concocted wild narratives in real time on television, or the newspapers that covered the fact that rumors were being investigated without investigating the facts themselves? Factual, highly persuasive, and damning, this must-read exposé makes clear that not only was there no "collusion," but there was not even a basis for Mueller's investigation of the charge that has besieged Trump and his administration for more than two years. It's always been a witch hunt. --, From dust jacket
