Reviews

Praise for American Kompromat
For the first time a former KGB employee has gone on record to describe Donald Trump's historic relationship with the Kremlin. It's a bombshell that must be looked into.--Robert Baer, former CIA operative and author of See No Evil

"I said in 2017 that Trump had more Russian connections than Aeroflot, and American Carnage documents every flight. Trump's loyalty to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin was deeper and more insidious than merely envying his wealth and power. America has removed Putin's puppet from the White House, but the KGB man who controlled him is still in the Kremlin, eager to repeat the success of his greatest operation: President Trump. Read Craig Unger to understand why the danger to American democracy is far from over."--Garry Kasparov, Chairman of the Renew Democracy Foundation and author of Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped

By compiling decades of Trump's seedy ties, disturbing and consistent patterns of behavior, and unexplained contacts with Russian officials and criminals, Unger makes a strong case that Trump is probably a compromised trusted contact of Kremlin interests.--John Sipher, Washington Post

Craig Unger has just published a wonderful, well-written book. The jewel in the crown is how the KGB cultivated Donald Trump. With assistance of the eminent former KGB officer Yuri Shvets, American Kompromat establishes how it really took place.--Anders Åslund, senior fellow, The Atlantic Council

"A must-read. The gun's not quite smoking, but the barrel's plenty hot, and there are Russian shell casings all around."--Kirkus (starred review)

"Make[s] the unassailable case that Donald J. Trump has been cultivated by Soviet and Russian leaders."--CounterPunch
