Trump/Russia is the greatest political scandal in American history. It’s also the most complex. In this remarkable and necessary work, novelist Greg Olear weaves the loose threads of Trump/Russia into a short, easy-to-follow narrative.

A lightning fast yet detailed read providing an excellent summation of the insanity we find ourselves in right now, spanning 2016 to last month. And yes, I read it with a hi-lighter poised to keep track of all the lied-about meetings, contacts, shady business deals, etc. Of course I did. Highly recommended.

Speaking Truth To Power

This book is a Cliff’s Notes of the Trump Russia connection. It connects the dots between various factual actions taken by Trump associates and the conspiracy perpetuated against the citizens of the United States. Some of the connecting lines are razor sharp, some blurred, and some speculatively dotted. In the end, a single candlelight of truth will not be extinguished by a world of dark lies.

A quick and dirty summary of the Trump/Russia scandal. He touches on all the major points and players. If you don’t want a major time investment this is a good start. Personally, I would suggest Russian Roulette. I think he’s got a fair bit of bias against Comey and Obama, and that it isn’t really justified. And since I am listening to the audio I am knocking off a full star for his narration. It is juvenile and hurts his credibility.

A fantastic summary of events. If you haven't been keeping up, a good way to catch up. If you have been keeping up, a good way to review. I needed this simply to confirm that the pieces I had been putting together still fit together the way I thought they did. Greg Olear is a hero.

I know I shouldn't fault a nonfiction book for what happens long after its publication, but I can't help being disappointed by Dirty Rubles after the completion of the Robert Mueller investigation, which seems (at this moment) to have absolved Donald Trump and his campaign of any collusion with the Russian government. Yes, the book is intended as a backgrounder in Trump/Russia, but it's also a partisan, steady buildup to a conclusion that happens after the final page - a conclusion (at this mome ...more

Shelves: crime
A very short summary that could have been a New Yorker article, if the obscenities were removed, but costing $9. The small fraction that you haven't already heard is conjecture.

New book Dirty Rubles: An Introduction to Trump/Russia is a primer on the greatest political scandal in US history.

"If ignorance is your bliss, Dirty Rubles isn't for you. Greg Olear deliciously tears down that barrier Trump has erected between the truth and the American people.
