New York Times Bestseller
“Authoritative... A smart recap of the past four years, punctuated by insider details about the investigations and Toobin’s judgments on the lawyering skills and ethics of various players. The author has no patience for James Comey’s sanctimony and “faux humility.” ...Rosenstein is “disoriented and out of his depth,” committing legal and political “malpractice” by letting Trump use him to justify Comey’s firing. And Barr is “sycophantic,” a “toady” who evolved from “principled conservative to Trump apologist.”
"At some point in the future, it is entirely possible that the full details of Donald Trump's business affairs, personal imbroglios and political maneuverings will be laid bare to the public. Should that happen, it is easy to imagine much of the world wondering how the man got away with so much for so long. In that hour, readers may well turn to True Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Investigation of Donald Trump....This work is more than a journalist emptying his notebook of all his interviews and insights. It is more than a legal expert analyzing how the best work of talented and committed lawyers could be frustrated by governmental rules and rivalries within the executive and legislative powers in our federal system. Perhaps its highest function is as a condensation of the best evidence against the presidency and character of Donald Trump, a summation offered up much as a prosecutor would do in seeking to sway a jury."
