Comic Publisher Turning Mueller Report Into Graphic Novel

A San Diego-based comic publisher has figured out a novel way to actually get people to read the Mueller report: Turn it into a graphic novel.

IDW Publishing announced on Friday that it is publishing “The Mueller Report: Graphic Novel,” an illustrated version of the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller and his team into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

Justin Eisinger, who’s editing the book, believes comic illustrations are the key to drawing more eyeballs to the report’s findings.

“This really is the easiest way to get people to actually read it,” he told HuffPost. ...

Wheeler promises a combination of factual information (there will be footnotes referencing the report throughout the book) and a lot of real-life hilarity.

Axios
Scoop: Sarah Sanders' next moves

Sarah Sanders is likely to hit the speaking circuit and write a book after leaving the White House on Friday, and she'll move to Arkansas in August as the prelude to a possible 2022 run for governor, sources tell Axios.

Details: We hear the book will be billed as an account of her life in politics and experience inside the Trump administration, which she sees as very positive. Sanders plans to relax with her family in July, and she will help with Trump's re-election campaign.

Sanders has told friends that she's looking seriously at running for Arkansas governor.

Well, she can lie to a smaller audience there.

Reason #100,756,485,912 that I am a sucker for going to work today. Who wants to work for it when you can cash in by lying to the credulous for a living?

And of course she wants to do that before she runs for AR governor, because it's unseemly even for members of the Trump inner circle to hit the right-wing lecture circuit and have ranty books ghostwritten for them while they're actually in office.

Donald Trump racial-slur allegations resurface in new book 'The Method to the Madness'

It’s the allegation that won’t die. And now a new book is adding more context — and more logs to the fire.

In “The Method to the Madness: Donald Trump's Ascent as Told by Those Who Were Hired, Fired, Inspired — and Inaugurated,” out Tuesday, authors and journalists Allen Salkin and Aaron Short resurrect the allegation that President Trump openly used a racial slur on the set of his long-running reality TV show “The Apprentice."

In the book, the story of Trump’s ascendancy to the White House is told as an oral history through direct quotes from named sources speaking on the record. One chapter immediately jumps out: It’s titled “The N-Word.”

John Lithgow writes poetry. He's been writing about trump for a while and has a book coming out in the fall. Here's one he wrote about Acosta last winter when we first heard from the Miami Herald re: Epstein.


(I'm a big Lithgow fan. I adore his comedic work. I try to avoid his villains. They are terrifying.)

According to a description of the book, Trump "will expose all the tricks that the left uses to smear conservatives and push them out of the public square, from online 'shadow banning' to fake accusations of 'hate speech.' "

Book describes Mike Pence's evolution into Trump's bootlicking `Bobblehead'

WASHINGTON – As Mike Pence headed to the airport on his way to test his chemistry with Donald Trump in July 2016, he questioned the wisdom of auditioning to be Trump’s running mate.

Pence anxiously called Kellyanne Conway, the pollster he shared with Trump, to express his concerns, according to a new book.

Conway told him there was no going back.

“You crossed the Rubicon,” she said, according to Tim Alberta’s “American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War.”

The book, which came out this month, tells the story of Trump’s takeover of the Republican Party at the end of a decade-long GOP civil war. One of the main plot lines is Pence’s transformation as well.

Alberta, chief political correspondent for Politico Magazine, describes Pence as mutating from one of "the most intellectually sovereign voices in all of Washington” to a No. 2 so servile that “some of his longtime friends were left to wonder (only half-jokingly) whether the president had blackmail on him.” Capitol Hill Republicans dubbed him “the Bobblehead” for his bootlicking and solemn nodding routine whenever Trump talked.

'Oh my God, what did I say?' How Justin Trudeau learned to deal with Donald Trump

New book by CBC's Aaron Wherry reveals the inside story of the 2 leaders' rift


The moment Donald Trump slapped tariffs on Canada's steel imports was the moment Justin Trudeau realized he couldn't take U.S. president at his word.

That hard lesson in the new reality of the Canada-U.S. relationship and several others learned by the prime minister are outlined in a new book by CBC senior writer Aaron Wherry.

The book Promise and Peril: Justin Trudeau in Power (HarperCollins) outlines the tumult of Trudeau's relationship with Trump, including a personal call to the prime minister to register a bitter complaint about Canada's Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, as well as Trudeau's initial stupefaction when the president launched a blistering Twitter attack against him from Air Force One hours after shaking his hand following last year's G7 summit in Quebec.

Like a lot of people, Trudeau was caught off guard by Trump's unlikely victory in 2016. Still, the prime minister decided early on to work hard on building a personal relationship with the new president by taking care to criticize Trump's comments, not Trump himself. "There was a discipline that I imposed on myself early," says Trudeau.

Working with extensive on-the-record conversations with the prime minister and his top advisers and with the perspectives of unnamed sources, Wherry describes how it quickly became clear to Trudeau just how little he was going to be able to control when it came to the Trump administration — and how badly Canada was going to need friends inside and outside the White House.

Page Six
Ex-National Enquirer editor’s new Trump book: ‘The Making of a Predator’ ...

Page Six reported back in November that the tabloid’s onetime executive editor Barry Levine had signed a deal with Hachette for the tome, but it was unclear what angle he was taking on the subject. Now that the title has been released — “All the President’s Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator” — it seems that Levine’s going after the prez pretty hard.

The book is co-authored by Monique El-Faizy and described as “an extensive new look at Donald Trump’s relationships with women, revealing new accusations of sexual misconduct [and] exploring the roots of his alleged predatory behavior.” It’s said to be based on “groundbreaking original reporting.”

Adding to the intrigue, Levine was near the top of the Enquirer masthead during the years that its then-chairman, David Pecker, was making negative stories about Trump disappear: Pecker would buy up information from those involved, never intending to publish the stories, in the now-infamous tactic known as “catch and kill.” Levine’s book is out Oct. 22. He didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Ex-Defense Secretary Mattis says US at "Breaking Point"

Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis warns bitter political divisions have pushed American society to the ‘‘breaking point’’ in his most extensive public remarks since he resigned in protest from the Trump administration.

Mattis also goes into some reasons he left the Trump administration in an excerpt from his book published Wednesday by The Wall Street Journal.

The retired Marine general writes he quit in 2018 when he realized his advice to President Donald Trump ‘‘no longer resonated’’ particularly with regard to ‘‘keeping faith’’ with allies. ...

Mattis resigned shortly after Trump announced he was pulling all U.S. troops from Syria. In Mattis’ view this amounted to betraying the Syrian Kurdish fighters who’d partnered with American troops to combat the Islamic State group.

Mattis’ book, ‘‘Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead,’’ is scheduled to be published Sept. 3.

Ex-aide to James Mattis claims Pentagon is holding up his memoir

In a lawsuit, Mattis’ former communications director claims the Pentagon has prolonged review of his manuscript “to benefit” the former secretary.


A top aide to former Defense Secretary James Mattis filed a lawsuit Thursday claiming the Pentagon is "obstructing and infringing on his right" to publish a memoir about his 17 months in the Trump administration.

Guy Snodgrass, a longtime Navy pilot who worked as Mattis' communications director and chief speechwriter, claims the Defense Department has "unreasonably delayed" reviewing the manuscript for his memoir, "Holding the Line: Inside Trump's Pentagon with Secretary Mattis."

In the suit, filed early Thursday, Snodgrass claims the Pentagon has "intentionally withheld" final approval of his manuscript so that Mattis' memoir, "Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead," could be published first. Mattis' book is scheduled to be released on Sept. 3.

Snodgrass, citing unnamed sources inside the Pentagon, also says the delay has been done "with the acquiescence, if not complicity of" Mattis.

What happened when Trump visited the African American History Museum, according to its founding director

In his upcoming memoir, newly appointed Smithsonian Secretary Lonnie G. Bunch III describes the private tour he gave President Trump of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, recalling that Trump’s reaction to the Dutch role in the global slave trade was, “You know, they love me in the Netherlands.”

Shortly before Trump took office in 2017, his administration asked to visit the newly opened museum, according to Bunch’s upcoming memoir, “A Fool’s Errand: Creating the National Museum of African American History and Culture in the Age of Bush, Obama and Trump.” Bunch was the museum’s founding director from 2005 until June, when he became the Smithsonian’s secretary.

The incoming president wanted to come on the holiday commemorating the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., according to the memoir. The administration also asked that the museum be closed to the public during the visit. “The notion that we could shut out visitors on the first King holiday since the opening of the museum was not something I could accept,” Bunch writes. Another day was chosen. ...

“The president paused in front of the exhibit that discussed the role of the Dutch in the slave trade,” Bunch writes. “As he pondered the label I felt that maybe he was paying attention to the work of the museum. He quickly proved me wrong. As he turned from the display he said to me, ‘You know, they love me in the Netherlands.’ All I could say was let’s continue walking.”

The Cambridge Analytica whistleblower explains how the firm used Facebook data to sway elections

An excerpt from a book by the Cambridge Analytica whistleblower reveals what the firm did that swayed the 2016 elections.

Christopher Wylie, a former Cambridge Analytica employee, is known for leaking documents to journalists that showed how Cambridge Analytica harvest the data of millions of Facebook users without their consent, using it to inform targeted political advertising. The campaigns of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz paid over $5 million each to the firm, Wylie wrote.

Wylie's newest book, "Mindf*ck: Cambridge Analytica and the Plot to Break America," details more about the firm's operations.

In an excerpt published in New York Magazine, Wylie says the firm used focus groups and qualitative observation to learn what Facebook users are interested in, including term limits, "draining the swamp," guns, and building walls to keep out immigrants. Wylie says that the firm was already exploring these ideas in 2014, before Trump's campaign.

Donald Trump Allegedly Hid Behind a Tapestry to Grope a Woman at Mar-a-Lago in the Early 2000s
In an exclusive excerpt from All the President’s Women, Karen Johnson, one of 43 women with new allegations against the president, tells her story.

BY BARRY LEVINE AND MONIQUE EL-FAIZY
OCT 9, 2019

Donald Trump's alleged transgressions against women are numerous, and as a new book reveals, they stretch back far further than we've previously realized. In All the President's Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator, journalists Barry Levine and Monique El-Faizy draw on over 100 interviews, many of them exclusive, to craft a detailed history of Trump's relationships with women, stretching back to his childhood and education as well as his rise through real estate, entertainment, and politics. What emerges from the authors' reporting is a portrait of a serial predator who hides behind wealth and institutional power to frequently harass and abuse women.

While the president has publicly faced allegations from two dozen women, this book reveals another 43 allegations of alleged inappropriate behavior, including 26 instances of unwanted sexual contact. In this exclusive excerpt from All the President's Women, Levine and El-Faizy investigate an alleged wave of unwanted touching that preceded his proposal to Melania Knauss, including a disturbing instance of groping at Mar-a-Lago. —Adrienne Westenfeld

Book by Fusion GPS founders coming out next month

NEW YORK (AP) — The co-founders of a political research firm behind allegations about President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia have a book coming out next month.

Random House announced Monday that “Crimes in Progress: Inside the Steele Dossier and the Fusion GPS Investigation of Donald Trump” will be published Nov. 26. The book was co-written by Fusion GPS founders Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch.

Random House is calling “Crime in Progress” a “never-before-told inside story” about Trump and Russia and the investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

Fusion GPS helped compile the so-called Steele Dossier, by former British spy Christopher Steele, who in his findings contended that the Russian government held compromising information on Trump. In his tweets, the president has attacked the dossier as “FAKE.”
