Trump is a locomotive, hurtling down the tracks, spewing filth a mile a minute.
Instinctively we try and keep up.
But it’s necessary sometimes to stop, look around, and take stock of the situation.
Nothing fancy. Nothing complicated. Just a primer.
In which I present my bona fides, such as they are, and explain the purpose of the #DirtyRubles book. We reflect on the impossibly long odds of a Trump victory.
We discuss Trump’s use of the “Big Lie” strategy so eloquently explained by Hitler in Mein Kompf. We present a litany of his lies about Russia. We discuss the 7 most important Trump/Russia meetings. #DirtyRubles
What is “Trump/Russia”? We quickly break down the crime, the criminals & their motives. We finger the troika of most important villains of the story: Paul Manafort, Mike Flynn & Jared Kushner. #DirtyRubles
In which I put on my novelist hat and tell the story from Jared Kushner’s POV. How he went from young, wealthy New York royalty to Kremlin asset. #DirtyRubles
How in God’s name did the Access Hollywood tape not end Trump’s presidency? Because of the Comey letter. Why did Comey do such a thing? We explain. #DirtyRubles
This is a chapter about the Russian mob, which is more like SPECTRE than Goodfellas. These are NOT people we want to cozy up to. We also delve into Trump’s mob ties. #DirtyRubles
How to end such a book in May of 2018? We rattle off the things we know we don't know yet but will eventually know (i.e., Junior’s indictment, Mike Pence’s role, results of Midterms). We end with hope! #DirtyRubles
