The Guardian’s Luke Harding has written an incredibly detailed, informative book about Russia’s involvement with Trump, the Trump campaign, and the 2016 election. In Collusion Dirty Money, Secret Meetings, And How Russia Helped Trump Win Harding describes Trump’s 30-year relationship with Russia. Even for someone, like me, who has followed the Russia investigation passionately, Harding’s work is truly worth the time. After reading it, I’m certain you will have learned something you didn’t already know and you will be convinced that the dealings between Russia and Trump are far greater than we know.
Many readers will appreciate the methodical way Harding walks them through the events and characters chronicled in the dossier compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. Harding’s account will leave you believing in Steele and wondering how much of his reporting is true.
Harding’s best work is done when he sets out the financial links between Trump, Russia, and Deutsche Bank. Reading about the long list of dirty, misleading financial transactions will boil your blood. No matter how you feel about Trump, the financial dealings described by Harding are illustrative of the sleazy ways the wealthy move money around and use it to manipulate governments.
If you want to learn a ton about the Russia investigation in one place, Mr. Harding’s Collusion is the book for you.
