About this item

The comprehensive story of how the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton campaign, and foreign entities tried to sabotage the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election.

Everyone has an opinion about whether or not Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. The number of actors involved is staggering, the events are complicated, and it's hard to know who or what to believe. Spygate bypasses opinion and brings facts together to expose the greatest political scandal in American history.

By following the names and connections of significant actors, the authors reveal:

* How the Trump-Russia collusion narrative was created

* What really happened with George Papadopoulos, the Trump Tower meeting, and Carter Page

* How Christopher Steele's opposition research was used to open an investigation

Dan Bongino's public service career began with the NYPD in 1995. After joining the US Secret Service in 1999, Dan received a Department of Justice award for his many investigations and arrests while assigned to a financial fraud task-force.

In 2006, Dan entered into duty with the elite Presidential Protective Division during the administration of President George W. Bush. Dan became one of the earliest tenured agents to be given responsibility for an operational section of the protective detail and he remained on protective duty with President Barack Obama.

One of their most distinguished agents, Dan's assignments included the coordination of President Obama's visits to Prague, Jakarta, amongst a myriad of terror threats, and finally as the lead agent responsible for President Obama's visit to an active war zone in Afghanistan.

Upon resigning from the Secret Service in 2011, Dan began a grassroots campaign for the US Senate in Maryland against the state's deep-rooted Democratic establishment. Despite overwhelming odds, he defeated 9 opponents in the Republican primary and finished second in a three-way race in the general election. Dan ran again in 2014. This time for the US Congress against a first-term Democratic opponent who had recently defeated the Republican representing the district by an incredible 21 points, in a newly gerrymandered district designed for easy Democratic victories. Shocking nearly everyone, in a race that was universally declared "uncompetitive", Dan won the race on Election Day, yet lost the election over the coming days by just 1 point as the absentee ballot count was finalized.

A New York Times Best Selling author of Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away From It All, Dan provides expertise on international security and political strategy for outlets such as Fox News, CNN, MSNBC and others. Dan is also a regular guest host on the Sean Hannity and Mark Levin Radio Shows, along with his guest hosting on Washington DC's WMAL radio.

Dan has his MBA from Penn State University, and his MA and BA from the City University of New York.
