The Plot Against the President

The Plot Against the President Summary

Investigative journalist Lee Smith uses his unprecedented access to Congressman Devin Nunes, former head of the House Intelligence Committee, to expose the deep state operation against the president -- and the American people.
Investigative journalist Lee Smith's The Plot Against the Presidenttells the story of how Congressman Devin Nunes uncovered the operation to bring down the commander-in-chief. While popular opinion holds that Russia subverted democratic processes during the 2016 elections, the real damage was done not by Moscow or any other foreign actor. Rather, this was a slow-moving coup engineered by a coterie of the American elite, the "deep state," targeting not only the president, but also the rest of the country.
The plot officially began July 31, 2016 with the counterintelligence investigation that the FBI opened to probe Russian infiltration of Donald Trump's presidential campaign. But the bureau never followed any Russians. In fact, it was an operation to sabotage Trump, the candidate, then president-elect, and finally the presidency. The conspirators included political operatives, law enforcement and intelligence officials, and the press.
The plot was uncovered by Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and his investigative team. They understood that the target of the operation wasn't just Trump, but rather the institutions that sustain our republic. A country where operatives use the intelligence and security services to protect their privileges by spying on Americans, coordinating with the press, and using extra-constitutional means to undermine an election then undo a presidency is more like the third world than the republic envisioned by the founding fathers.
Without Nunes and his team, the plot against the president -- and against the country -- never would have been revealed. Told from the perspective of Nunes and his crack investigators -- men and women who banded together to do the right thing at a crucial moment for our democracy -- the story of the biggest political scandal in a generation reads like a great detective novel, feels like a classic cowboy movie. The congressman from the cattle capital of California really did fight corruption in Washington. Devin Nunes took on the "deep state."

The deep state lies5 star

Every citizen should be worried about this, on the eve of an election and still the American people believe that Trump is a Russian agent. Can people be so lazy as to not do any homework on their own, but just believe whatever the main stream media tells them? I fear that God will turn his back on America and its corruption, why not if the people don’t care!55


Complex but well worth your time5 star

It was great to read a more in depth account of this investigation after having followed bits and pieces for the past 3 years. The collusion story was a complex web of lies and I hope the perpetrators can be held accountable.55


Exceptional5 star

This is a well written insider view of the uncanny and decidedly novel campaign to destroy a presidency from within entrenched government.55


The other side of the story.5 star

This was an interesting read. It is the other side of the story. This is not what any of those in the media are telling us is the other side of the story. It is an inside look at Washington that is believable. It will be interesting to see people try to discredit this account of the history of the last few years. It will also be interesting to see who those people are.55


Thank God for Nunes, Lee and others bent on TRUTH5 star

The truth hurts and sets those who know of it free. One split second of knowing the truth is worth millions of years knowing nothing. Except in the case of the Left how to lie and cheat We The People of this great Republic. The Democrats now—especially in the upper echelons of Intelligence, education, entertainment and tech—might as well come clean that their agenda is not Socialism but out and out Communism on a global scale. Shame on The Obama Administration all the way to that diabolical White House. In our Constitution—and God—We Trust. God is not mocked and all the Leftists are going to see Who Has The Real Power. Fear it.55
