Publisher's Summary

In April 2016, computer technicians at the Democratic National Committee discovered that someone had accessed the organization's computer servers and conducted a theft that is best described as Watergate 2.0. In the weeks that followed, the nation's top computer security experts discovered that the cyber thieves had helped themselves to everything: sensitive documents, emails, donor information, even voice mails.
Soon after, the remainder of the Democratic Party machine, the congressional campaign, the Clinton campaign, and their friends and allies in the media were also hacked. Credit card numbers, phone numbers, and contacts were stolen. In short order, the FBI found that more than 25 state election offices had their voter registration systems probed or attacked by the same hackers.
Western intelligence agencies tracked the hack to Russian spy agencies and dubbed them the Cyber Bears. The media was soon flooded with the stolen information channeled through Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. It was a massive attack on America but the Russian hacks appeared to have a singular goal - elect Donald J. Trump as president of the United States.
New York Times best-selling author and career intelligence officer Malcolm Nance's fast paced real-life spy thriller takes you from Vladimir Putin's rise through the KGB from junior officer to spymaster-in-chief and spells out the story of how he performed the ultimate political manipulation - convincing Donald Trump to abandon 70 years of American foreign policy including the destruction of NATO, cheering the end of the European Union, allowing Russian domination of Eastern Europe, and destroying the existing global order with America at its lead.
The Plot to Hack America is the thrilling true story of how Putin's spy agency, run by the Russian billionaire class, used the promise of power and influence to cultivate Trump as well as his closest aides, the Kremlin Crew, to become unwitting assets of the Russian government. The goal? To put an end to 240 years of free and fair American democratic elections.

Short and Terrifying

This has little to do with Trump - it's about how Russian cyber warfare and propaganda is light-years ahead of ours. We may have many advantages, but we are blind in some areas. This blindness could end up causing a civil or world war.

The Most Definitive Chronicle of the 2016 Election

Malcolm Nance is a crisp, talented, and formidably insightful seasoned US Counterintelligence expert. This is THE MUST HAVE BOOK for every American. Drawing on his years of experience as an intelligence expert who knows the past, present and future ambitions and political, social, economic and military operations of Russia, Nance provides a masterful articulation of the calculated and systematically organized plans that invaded the US democratic process. This patriotic American hero provides vivid details of the motives and strategic Russian intelligence system includes the most robust and factual account of Donald Trump, his associates and their direct ties to Vladimir Putin and the corrupt wealthy establishment of Putin's oligarchical friends. In a nation yearning for answers, Nance provides both the questions and answers as to what happened, why, who and the potentially perilous outcomes from Russia's ongoing efforts to pull the roots of democracy from the soils of the US and our European Democratic allies. Nance's powerful insights explicitly presents Putin's players, how and why Trump and his most trusted circle is connected and aligned with Putin and his Kremlin oligarchy. With no-nonsense candor, Nance articulates the transformation from the KGB to the modern FSB. Nance provides an unparalleled synthesis and analysis of the practices, operations, skill set, psychological constructs, functions, and goals of Putin and his FSB. There is no comparable exposé of the interconnectedness between Russia's operations in Crimea, the Ukraine, Syria, Turkey and Donald Trump, Flynn, Mannafort, Page and others. This book should be heralded as a second to none achievement that presents irrefutable facts that give credence to the Clarion call that should be heard and responded to by every American. Moreover, it compels every patriotic American to demand an aggressive, thorough and unfettered criminal investigation and accountability by those who were part of the hijacking of our representative democracy. This is not a partisan book as Nance presents a poignant and vivid contemporary "Common Sense" that warns America of the powers at hand that connect Putin's Kremlin and, what is now, Trump' s Washington. If ever there was a book that needed to be made into a documentary and aired across the legitimate journalistic vanguards of democracy. . . this is it. In closing, it is my hope that Nance receives both the exceedingly well-deserved Noble Peace and Pulitzer Prizes for his candid, verifiable, and alarm raising exposure of the truth and nothing but the truth of the fortified dastardly powers hard at work that are trying to bring a collapse of the world's democratic nations and the perilous ascension of the murderous, tyrranical Putin oligarchy. It is Nance's genius and insightful expertise that exposes the Putin crime syndicate as crafty, calculated, sinister agents who are unrelentingly attempting to craft their anti-democratic, totalitarian, and liberty undermining world order. Thank you Malcolm Nance. Dr. Larry Smith
