"A convincing cry that treason is afoot." - Kirkus Reviews

"[E]ven as this plot gets more intricate (and, yes, sometimes it does read like a political thriller), readers will be turning pages quickly, feeling both anxiety and betrayal. . . . [E]ven supporters of the president will have something to think about." - Booklist

In the greatest intelligence operation in the history of the world, Donald Trump was made President of the United States with the assistance of a foreign power. The Plot to Destroy Democracy reveals the dramatic story of how blackmail, espionage, assassination, and psychological warfare were used by Vladimir Putin and his spy agencies to steal the 2016 U.S. election-and attempted to bring about the fall of NATO, the European Union, and Western democracy.

Career U.S. intelligence officer Malcolm Nance examines how Russia has used cyberwarfare, political propaganda, and manipulation of our perception of reality-and will do so again-to weaponize American news, traditional media, social media, and the workings of the internet to attack and break apart democratic institutions from within, and what we can expect to come should we fail to stop their next attack.

Nance has utilized top secret Russian-sourced political and hybrid warfare strategy documents to demonstrate the master plan to undermine American institutions that has been in effect from the Cold War to the present day. He exposes how Russia has supported the campaigns of right-wing extremists throughout both the U.S. and Europe to leverage an axis of autocracy, and how Putin's agencies have worked since 2010 to bring fringe candidate Donald Trump into elections.

Revelatory, insightful, and shocking, The Plot to Destroy Democracy puts a professional spy lens on Putin's plot and unravels it play-by-play. In the end, Nance provides a better understanding of why Putin's efforts are a serious threat to our national security and global alliances-in much more than one election-and a blistering indictment of Putin's puppet, President Donald J. Trump.


  • Straight up propaganda

    By wreckyoself
    It amazes me at what level a political party will do to discredit and silence people voices. The citizens of America have voted and elected a president. If your party didn’t win than maybe you should rethink your platform.
  • Interesting theory~if history’s any teacher not as far fetched as one would hope.

    I hope this book is not true but growing up in a political family that has been in the America’s since before the American Revolution, it would not surprise me. Our founding fathers wrote endlessly about the dangers to democracy. More chilling to me than the book, is how all the one star reviews are obviously written by the same hack. Somebodies worried. Perhaps a Russian bot whose favorite epithet is meathead.
  • Great

    Truthful and concise. If you are a Trump die hard supporter, you probably will not like it.

  • Attention right wing nut jobs!

    By Poetic Mastery
    God forbid you actually see and accept the truth! If dictator Donnie gets his way that’s precisely what our country will be a dictatorship with Donnie at the head of a totalitarian regime. Can you say North Korea? Can you say hereditary trump dictatorship? I didn’t think so all of you are to blind to see the writing on the wall!

  • Interesting and Current

    By Maj Grubert
    As political events unfold, this work helps them make sense. While its difficult to follow the varied plot lines simply by watching the news, Nance defines why these persons under investigation just might be guilty.
