It has been called the political crime of the century: a foreign government, led by a brutal authoritarian leader, secretly interfering with the American presidential election to help elect the candidate of its choice. Now two-time Pulitzer Prizewinning Washington Post national security reporter Greg Miller investigates the truth about the Kremlins covert attempt to destroy Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump win the presidency, Trumps steadfast allegiance to Vladimir Putin, and Robert Muellers ensuing investigation of the president and those close to him.

Based on interviews with hundreds of people in Trumps inner circle, current and former government officials, individuals with close ties to the White House, members of the law enforcement and intelligence communities, foreign officials, and confidential documents, The Apprentice offers striking new information about:

the hacking of the Democrats by Russian intelligence;
Russian hijacking of Facebook and Twitter;
National Security Adviser Michael Flynns hidden communications with the Russians;
the attempt by Jared Kushner, Trumps son-in-law, to create a secret back channel to Moscow using Russian diplomatic facilities;
Trumps disclosure to Russian officials of highly classified information about Israeli intelligence operations;
Trumps battles with the CIA and the FBI and fierce clashes within the West Wing;
Trumps efforts to enlist the director of national intelligence and the director of the National Security Agency to push back against the FBIs investigation of his campaign;
the mysterious Trump Tower meeting;
the firing of FBI Director James Comey;
the appointment of Mueller and the investigation that has followed;
the tumultuous skirmishing within Trumps legal camp;
and Trumps jaw-dropping behavior in Helsinki.

Deeply reported and masterfully told, The Apprentice is essential reading for anyone trying to understand Vladimir Putins secret operation, its catastrophic impact, and the nature of betrayal.
