The Hill
Washington Post publishing book on Trump and Russian election interference

The Washington Post is set to publish a book later this year about Russia's interference in the 2016 election, and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of the matter.

“The Apprentice: Trump, Russia and the Subversion of American Democracy” will be published Oct. 2 by Custom House, a publishing imprint of HarperCollins, according to The Post.

“No other book has covered the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election with greater scope and determination to get to the truth,” Custom House said in a release.

The book's main author will be Washington Post national security correspondent Greg Miller, but The Post said journalists from the paper’s national, foreign, business and local desks contributed reporting.

NPR Book Review
In 'Everything Trump Touches Dies,' Few Are Spared ...

Wilson's anti-Trump criticisms are popular on Twitter, where he aggressively attacks pro-Trump accounts with his signature style of wit and insults.

Brevity is the soul of wit — and this book would have been better off left in a series of tweets.

From The Hill -
Omarosa secretly recorded Trump: report

Omarosa Manigault-Newman, a former aide to President Trump, secretly recorded conversations with the president while she was serving in the White House, multiple sources told the Daily Beast.

Manigault-Newman, who prior to working for the administration appeared as a contestant on Trump's reality show "The Apprentice," is coming out with a tell-all book about her experience in the White House. The book, titled "Unhinged," is set to be released on Aug. 14.

She wouldn't be the only person to have recorded her interactions with the president: Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and sometime-fixer, is known to have recorded Trump as well. One such recording was recently released and revealed Trump discussing possible payment to a former Playboy Playmate with whom he was accused of having an affair.

The Hill has reached out to the White House for comment.

Simon & Schuster, the publisher of “Unhinged,” told the Daily Beast in a statement, “Without commenting on the specific contents of UNHINGED,” the spokesperson said, “we are confident that Omarosa Manigault Newman can substantiate her highly-anticipated account of life inside the Trump White House.”

Omarosa Claims Trump Repeatedly Used 'N-Word' During 'The Apprentice'

Former “Apprentice” contestant and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman claims President Donald Trump repeatedly used “the N-word,” according to The Guardian, which obtained an advance copy of her forthcoming book Unhinged.

Newman, who left the White House last year, says that Trump used the racial slur while taping “The Apprentice” and that he was caught on camera. Trump starred on the reality TV show for years.

Rumors have for years swirled that such outtakes exist. In her book, to be released on Tuesday, Newman does not specify whether she heard Trump use the slur or whether she saw footage of him using it. She says she heard him use other racial epithets in reference to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband George, who is half-Filipino. This explains George's tweets against Trump.

The $$$$ quote:
“It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist,” she wrote, according to The Guardian. “Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole.”

Nah, the Trump Presidential Library will consist solely of one million copies of the Art of the Deal. Only books "written" by Trump have the quality to get the honor of getting into the Trump Presidential Library.

Omarosa is on Meet the Press this morning, and they said she'll be on the Today Show tomorrow. I'm still unsure what to make of her (waiting for the book), but she did have audio tapes of Kelly firing her. Some controversy over her taping that, but LOL - look at the responses here.


Who in their right mind thinks it’s appropriate to secretly record the White House chief of staff in the Situation Room?

Newsweek
Donald Trump Should Be Impeached Now Because ‘The Constitution Demands It’: New Book

Congress, which has the authority to begin impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump has been reluctant to act, awaiting the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal investigation, among other things.

But in a new book, three veteran constitutional lawyers argue that the framers of the Constitution provided impeachment as a remedy in anticipation of a leader like Trump, and that he’s committed enough offenses for removal proceedings to begin immediately.

The framers of the Constitution “were obsessed with corruption,” and “to defend against this ever-present danger, they built bulwarks into the Constitution itself,” the book The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump, set for release Tuesday, says.

“President Donald Trump has been violating the Constitution since the moment he took the oath of office—and since then, the corruption, abuse of power, and abuse of public trust have only gotten worse,” the authors Ron Fein, John Bonifaz and Ben Clements write.

Spectator - Book Review :thunbsup:
Did the Russian mafia help Trump along his way to the Oval Office? House of Trump, House of Putin by Craig Unger reviewed.

Before he died last year, the New York muckraking reporter Wayne Barrett told me he had discovered ‘25 to 30’ connections between Donald Trump and the mob. He was talking about Italian-American organised crime but today another New York journalist, Craig Unger, says he has found ‘59’ links to the Russian mafia. He lists them all in his new book House of Trump, House of Putin, which is damning in its accumulation of detail, terrifying in its depiction of the pure evil of those Trump chose to do business with, and enraging in that — if Unger is right — Trump acted with impunity for decades to get filthy rich laundering the mob’s blood money. This is the man who now sits in the Oval Office, Unger says. In fact, he argues, they put him there.

House of Trump, House of Putin starts with Trump’s early days in business, when his lawyer was Roy Cohn, who was also consigliere to two of the five New York Italian crime families and ‘the most evil, twisted, vicious bastard ever to snort coke at Studio 54’. There were mafia figures like ‘Sonny’ Franzese, a hitman who was recorded helpfully explaining how to get rid of the bodies: ‘Dismember victim in kiddie pool. Cook body parts in microwave. Stuff parts in garbage disposal. Be patient.’ When one of these Italian gangsters met Trump to buy an apartment ‘he opened his briefcase and $200,000 in cash spilled out on Trump’s table’.

To the Russians, this was small time. Unger retells a story of Barrett’s that when a Red mafiya boss, David Bogatin, came to Trump Tower, he met Trump himself and immediately bought five apartments for $6 million in cash (about $14.5 million today). Trump didn’t seem to wonder where this money might have come from. He was one of the first developers to discover that you could sell condos to shell companies that concealed the owners’ identities, Unger says. This allowed Russian criminals ‘to launder vast amounts of money’. Trump’s willingness to sell ‘no questions asked’ was so important, Unger believes, that he gave the Russian mafia a foothold in the United States.

The Trump Organization’s reply to this is that money laundering is ‘a problem for the whole real estate industry’. How are we supposed to know where anyone’s money comes from? Fuhgeddaboudit! It is a convenient alibi but not a persuasive one, given the large amount of such business done by the Trump Organization. Anders Åslund, a Swedish expert on Russian money laundering, is quoted in the book: ‘Early on, Trump came to the conclusion that it is better to do business with crooks than with honest people.’ An investigation by the news website BuzzFeed found that 1,300 condos in Trump buildings were bought by shell companies that paid cash, a fifth of his sales since the 1980s. Unger points to the Trump World Tower in Manhattan, where a third of apartments on the highest and most expensive floors were sold this way. And more than Trump’s customers, there are Unger’s other links between Trump and suspect Russians. As Oscar Wilde might have said: ‘To have one Russian mafia connection may be regarded as a misfortune; to have 59 looks like carelessness.’ ...

Unger has done an impressive job of putting some of the many allegations about Trump’s dealings with the mafia together in one place. House of Trump, House of Putin is like a pointillist work of art. It might be hard to see the significance of any one fact or any one story about Trump knowing this or that gangster. But step back, take it all in, and you see the whole, ugly picture Unger has painted.

Trump's golf 'ethics deficit' to be focus of new book

NEW YORK -- The next book to take on President Donald Trump isn't focused on Russia or tax policy. It's about his golf game.

Hachette Books announced Wednesday that Rick Reilly's "Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump" will come out next May.

Hachette is calling the book a close study of Trump's "ethics deficit" on the course and what it says about him as a leader. Reilly is a longtime contributor to Sports Illustrated and CNN. He's basing his book on firsthand observations, along with interviews with everyone from golfing partners to caddies.

Reilly has written about Trump and golf before, notably in his 2003 publication, "Who's Your Caddy?: Looping for the Great, Near Great, and Reprobates of Golf."
