Publisher's Summary

A provocative, comprehensive analysis of Vladimir Putin and Russia's master plan to destroy democracy in the age of Donald Trump.
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. For the first time, 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 US election - and attempted to bring about the fall of NATO, the European Union, and western democracy. It will show how Russia and its fifth column allies tried to flip the cornerstones of democracy in order to reengineer the world political order that kept most of the world free since since 1945.  
Career US Intelligence officer Malcolm Nance will examine how Russia has used cyberwarfare, political propaganda, and manipulating our perception of reality - and will use it 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.  
In his 35-year career in intelligence, Nance specialized in cryptology, national security policy, counter-terrorism intelligence. He 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. Based on original research and countless interviews with espionage experts, Nance examines how Putin's recent hacking accomplished a crucial first step for destabilizing the West for Russia, why Putin is just the man to do it.  
Nance has been called to testify before Congress and advise House and Senate Intelligence Committee members on the details of the election meddling. In this audiobook, he exposes how Russia has supported the campaigns of right-wing extremists throughout both the US 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, he 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.

This is a fantastic, important and scary book. If only 50% of it is true (and I have no reason to doubt any of it), this country is in serious trouble. It will take the will of ALL of the people to fix it.

I read this book and thought is was good but a little bit “conspiracy theory” . Then I watched the Putin/Trump press conference! Everything he predicted would happen is starting to happen. Help!

I was looking forward to listening to this as I'm convinced trump is compromised by the Russians.
In this era of fake news and the importance of getting facts correct,I absolutely lost interest and lost any credibility in the author when he got two important facts wrong.
1. He claimed that Putin channeled $500 billion to the Ukrainian government to help his puppet retain power...that's just ridiculous.
2.He stated that flight MH17 was shot down in 2017 when in fact it was 2014

Once you get basic facts wrong you lose me and I understandably wonder what other facts are wrong

Very disappointing
