Investigative journalist Lee Smith's The Plot Against the President tells the story of how Congressman Devin Nunes uncovered the operation to bring down the commander-in-chief. While popular opinion holds that Russia subverted democratic processes during the 2016 elections, the real damage was done not by Moscow or any other foreign actor. Rather, this was a slow-moving coup engineered by a coterie of the American elite, the "deep state," targeting not only the president, but also the rest of the country. The plot officially began July 31, 2016 with the counterintelligence investigation that the FBI opened to probe Russian infiltration of Donald Trump's presidential campaign. But the bureau never followed any Russians. In fact, it was an operation to sabotage Trump, the candidate, then president-elect, and finally the presidency. The conspirators included political operatives, law enforcement and intelligence officials, and the press. The plot was uncovered by Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and his investigative team. They understood that the target of the operation wasn't just Trump, but rather the institutions that sustain our republic. A country where operatives use the intelligence and security services to protect their privileges by spying on Americans, coordinating with the press, and using extra-constitutional means to undermine an election then undo a presidency is more like the third world than the republic envisioned by the founding fathers. Without Nunes and his team, the plot against the president -- and against the country -- never would have been revealed. Told from the perspective of Nunes and his crack investigators -- men and women who banded together to do the right thing at a crucial moment for our democracy -- the story of the biggest political scandal in a generation reads like a great detective novel, feels like a classic cowboy movie. The congressman from the cattle capital of California really did fight corruption in Washington. Devin Nunes took on the "deep state."

I am not a Republican but I have witnessed this country improve substantially. I have also seen the media and the left doing everything and anything to discredit him and his family. Take for instance his wife. She is arguably the most beautiful First Lady we have ever had; for God's sake she is truly and literally a Super Model. Yet you go through the grocery store and if you are lucky, you will see her on 1 magazine but under some sort of scandal (e.g. FLOTUS and POTUS divorcing). Yet under Obama, Michelle was on every cover of every magazine and every show. Although I happen to think she is a beautiful woman, she is certainly not a Super Model and the Obama's, if you care to look, were so corrupt and non-transparent. Everything from Separating Families, Bombing countries, deporting illegal aliens (yeah I said it). It's crazy to me that the public (primarily leftists and anti-Trumpers) will believe absolutely anything negative about Trump. The more salacious the better. Anything from being a double-agent for the Russians to golden showers and anything in between. Yet when confronted, with facts even that there was in FACT a coupe attempt that is still very much alive today, THAT my friends is tin foil hat craziness. This book covers, in detail how the "deep state" or whatever you want to call them, abused their power and positions to attempt to reverse a victory by Donald J. Trump in 2016. The irony is that the very same things they accuse HIM of doing, and have been unable to prove a single thing, is precisely what the the Left and anti-Trumpers have done. The crazy part about it is that they come out on TV with this righteous indignation against Trump's supposed action when all the while it is them that are guilty of collusion, obstruction of justice, hatch act, hiring foreign counties to affect elections and oh so many more. The media and the people are myopic to the hypocrisy or are just down right evil people. Now we are at this impeachment crescendo where the left thinks this is going to be the grand finale of their plan, but don't count your chickens quite yet. I predict this, coupled with all of the rest of the failed attempts at the coupe will be seen by the people and you WILL have a "perfect storm". As we saw with the unpopular George W. Bush's second term where he won the electoral and the poplular vote, you will probably see the same with Trump. Not only this but the "real" "do nothing Congress" will go back to Republicans. At that point, the shoe WILL drop. You will see the full force of the United States Government rein down on the previous administration including Hillary "rotten" Clinton, Comie, Clapper, Brennen, Peloci, Schiff, Nadler, Obama, Rice, Lynch and the rest. I think this is good. I think the Dems need to police their party as do the Republicans. I truly believe that the Democrats have opened Pandora's Box and have woken a sleeping giant. They have set the rules by which future administrations will be looked at and investigated by. Be careful what you wish for Nancy. I have read other books on this subject and this one really gave me a lot of little details and timelines of which I was not aware of. Also the attacks against Mr. Núñez and his family. I fear the media companies that are owned by corporations that benefit from Socialistic endeavors and the Social Media companies that have way too much power to influence all sorts of things political and others is a problem. I would love to see a bipartisan attempt to rein in the corruption in the media as well as the Social Media. Recent history has shown how the media protects their leftist heroes regardless of what heinous crimes they have committed. Weinstein, Jeff Epstein, Matt Lauer, Clinton, Polanski just to name a few. These people are predators, real predators of even children. The media outlets consistently spiked stories about them. Yet Trump simply says that women let famous people "grab them by the pussy" and these very same people who are guilty themselves (Clinton, Lauer) and the media outlets that protect them go full apoplectic. I hope the American people see through this hypocrisy and force change. I don't care what party gets caught up and outed, it's not and should not be a partisan thing. The ends do NOT justify the means. We all have the presumption of innocence, freedom of speech and right to bear arms to name a very few. Analyze, these rights are all being taken from us in the name of the "better good" but the better good only comes when we have and protect those rights. ALL OF THEM.

    I’m a political junkie. It started as I watched Obama began to unravel the fabric of our country. It reached a climax the night of the Benghazi atrocity. I watch and read news fanatically. I learn from all sorts of sources. I listen respectfully with those who have opposing views (as long as they share those views respectfully.) Many of my friends write to me on social media to say they look to me to learn what is happening each day in Washington D. C. So needless to say, the message of this book I’m a political junkie.

I listen respectfully with those who have opposing views (as long as they share those views respectfully.) Many of my friends write to me on social media to say they look to me to learn what is happening each day in Washington D. C. So needless to say, the message of this book was not a mystery to me: “The Clintons hired a bunch of con men who got their dirty cop friends to frame Trump. The press and a corrupt prosecutor handled the cover-up.” What was a surprise was how dark the story got. Your FBI and your CIA were used by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to not only spy on an opposing presidential candidate, but to smear his name with lies. It all came out in February 2018. No one disputes this today. You will not believe how convoluted the schemes became. And the book’s author Lee Smith does a Yeoman’s work by trying to simplify descriptions of their dastardly deeds; their coup attempt. And every speck of it is detailed in the “notes” section. Do yourself a favor, read the book and if you still walk away hating Trump and loving the liberal leaders and fake media, I will give you credit for at least trying to give yourself a true understanding of what happened. I keep thinking this unbelievable story needs to be made into a movie, because your average American has no clue about the corruption at the top tiers of our government and our media. Remember that movie The Big Short. It took the very sophisticated wheelings and dealings of the housing crises and made it easy to understand. I would like to see a movie of this true story. There are so many good and bad actors, and Lee Smith exposes them all! The heroes are, first and foremost, our President. He trusted American institutions like the CIA and FBI to help, not hurt our country. Good riddance to Hillary, Barack, Comey, Brennan, McCabe, Clapper, Rice, Powers, Lynch, Page, Strzok, Rosenstein . . . (the list is too long). Another hero is Devin Nunes because he did the investigation despite the threats to his family. Hats off to Kash Patel who convinced Nunes about the hubris of McCabe and Comey. He had first row seats to their actions. The losers are the 50% of Americans who believe the liberal media and hate the president that Americans duly elected. It sickens me to think Obama and Hillary’s legacy is the division of this great country. The winners are the 50% of Americans who didn’t let themselves be led astray by a corrupt media. The 50% who chose to think, and vote, and select a man who would and could eradicate the Swamp.

    Wonderfully researched book. I find myself reading more and more political books lately to educate myself on things going on in my country. As a veteran I am appalled by the division of our country. I'm so glad I read this book! 5 star read and I highly recommend to everyone.

    Extremely well researched and documented to make the case that the plot against the president was orchestrated by the deep state. The information was so abundant that it overwhelmed me as a reader. As a result of this research it would be difficult to trust the news media in the future.

    If you are skeptical about the Deep State, if you think the Swamp is just political spin, if you think the Press isn’t putting out fake news for political gain, if you don’t believe that the FBI, DOJ, and IC are not riddled with corruption, then you need to read this book for a shocking look at reality.

The book describes a multi-facet clandestine operation headed by deeply bias bureaucrats steeped in subterfuge recycled by the liberal press corp. that pushed a false narrative based on classified leaks from within the government, and a false dossier paid for by Hilary Clinton. Leak, report, print, investigate, report, print. Rinse and repeat. If you go against the political establishment, they will destroy you. The notion that the 44th Administration would use the power of our intel and law enforcement agencies to assist a political candidate should anger everyone, regardless of political affiliation. Well done, Lee Smith for synthesizing the investigation into a can’t put down, page turner. Lying, spying, and coups, oh my.

The plot against the president will go down in history as the sharpest turning point in US government since the Civil War. The victors will write the historical version, but this book will be a major resource of the facts unfolding. The outcome is still in doubt as to who will win in this coup attempt because the “resistance” is deeply embedded in the American bureaucracy, education system, government and totally controls the mainstream entertainment news media. The book exposes the media driven mob attack against those who would try to “drain the swamp”. It is written in an easy to read, newspaper reporting style that manages to leave the new normal “progressive” bias behind. Entertaining and factual, the story will make your blood boil. Reading it you will be driven to fact check on the internet and yet you will not find any faults. For me this one quote; - “the collective psyche of the political and cultural elite, as expressed in the media, was broken… For the US media the collusion narrative was an extinction level event” - is the main take away from the whole book. If, after reading this book you still have no interest in what the “deep state” is doing to our democracy, then you should just return to fashioning your chains and hope that someone will come to save you. For all who value our democracy this should galvanize you to join the fight against this evil.

    Excellent book by Lee Smith. It almost seems like a fictional spy novel it is so good and keeps you hooked. Sadly it shows the abuse of power that you expect to see in a third world banana republic. I have read Lee Smith's columns and articles and enjoy is approach to telling a story and explaining things. A great read.

    An eye opener. Though it contains editorializing, the recitation of detailed facts provides an objective criteria for the reader to evaluate the events encompassing the Trump investigation and the actions of those who initiated it, authorized it, pursued it, and benefited from it.

    Finish this book and lose at least 10 IQ points. Anyone short on conspiracy theories will find an abundance here. I picked up this book to gain its perspective and put it down when I encountered nothing but lies easily disproved.

    Lee Smith has hit a grandslam. The Deep State is fully exposed for what it is. Career bureaucrats are described in great detail. Lee rounds up the usual suspects; Comey, McCabe, Peter Strock, Lisa Page, Bruce and Nellie Orr, Robert Mueller, Adam Schiff, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and most importantly Hillary Clinton. Their corruption and malfeasance is just staggering! I thank God for Congressman Devin Nunes and his Objective Medusa team.

    It’s a very one-sided (Republican) point of view pointing at democratic party members (in connection with the media) who have been attempting to show that Trump is colluding with the Russians.

While Democratic Party members deny allegations against them for planting this false information against the president, additionally, there doesn’t seem to be any real evidence that Trump is actually colluding with the Russians (only false claims). As a common layperson who has conducted no additional research beyond this book, it appears to be pretty solid in its claims. I appreciate how Smith asks us as readers some key questions that help support some good points. After reading this I immediately looked for any books reacting to this book and I found nothing. It makes me wonder if the reason that is so is that the Democratic side has no argument or, more importantly, no evidence. After all, if there was, wouldn’t it be out there? Wouldn’t this be the primary issue being addressed during the whole impeachment process of 2020? IN MY FINAL ANALYSIS while I’m not against all the hard work that was put into setting the record straight to defend the truth, unfortunately this book is ultimately trying to say that the Democrats are corrupt and the Republicans are basically “the good guys.” The reality is that we are deeply immersed in a society who seeks to be viewed as right in order to get what we want. And this is done out of fear. There is no ultimately good or ultimately bad party.

    Excellent accounting of the deep state conspiring to over throw a legitimately elected president. Must read for all Americans. Thank you to the brave patriots who have exposed the scheme through their tireless and brilliant efforts. It offers some hope that justice is still possible.

    Excellent read! I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to understand the behind the scenes coup the Democrats were planning. Very well written. I’ve always admired Dennis Nunes but didn’t understand what he and his family went through. What a dedicated American!

    Riveting and revealing. Uncovers a lot that we didn't know is going on in institutions we have trusted in the past. The prospect of correcting the corruption and mishandling of intelligence information is still unknown. This book is a good sequel to McCarthy's book, Ball of Collusion.

    Not only did I learn new things about what the 'deep state' did but it is so well written. I found it so sad to think of how these people work so hard to destroy our great country. Thank you for all of the work Devin Nunes has done. It was not easy to get the information but you kept at it and we now know so much more about the people trying to ruin our country. Now if with this information I hope we see many go to jail. This is a must read.
