Abramson’s research on Trump administration corruption positions the Ukraine scandal as the foreseeable culmination of years of clandestine machinations involving scores of players, from Beijing to Budapest, Ankara to Caracas, Warsaw to Jerusalem, Kyiv to Riyadh, and Moscow to D.C. While many know about the July 2019 telephone call that ignited the Ukraine scandal, most don’t know about the concurrent attempts by members of Trump’s inner circle to take over Ukraine’s national gas company and bolster dangerous pro-Kremlin Ukrainian oligarchs—moves that would have benefited Putin and destabilized Ukraine’s government and economy. In Beijing, Trump’s dealings with the Chinese government not only enriched him and his family, but also culminated in him successfully seeking 2020 election interference from Xi Jinping in the form of closely held information about Joe Biden. In Venezuela, many of the actors involved in the Ukraine scandal engaged in similarly secretive, Kremlin-friendly negotiations that undermined U.S. policy. In Syria and Iraq, Trump’s personal indebtedness to autocrats in Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE cost untold lives. And Abramson brings the story back to an increasingly fractured and depleted United States, where the COVID-19 pandemic exposes the staggering domestic consequences of the Trump administration’s foreign machinations. In Proof of Corruption, Seth Abramson lays bare Trump’s decades-long pattern of corruption. This globe-spanning narrative is an urgent warning about the unprecedented threat posed by a corrupt president and his administration.

    Seth: "Proof of Corruption details Trump's business ties to the Chinese government and reveals the secret benefits he got in return for these ties—and his trade war"

    Essential (if scary) backgrounder to the unfathomable depths of the Trump cohert perfidy I follow the author on Twitter which is both a plus and a minus - PLUS: you know what has been going on before most general public MINUS: your ability to be shocked and outraged by Trump and his cohort gets dissipated. However, reading (and listening) to it all packed into book form brings it all back. You find yourself saying "Oh ... I forgot about that!" but most of the time it is putting meat on the bones Essential (if scary) backgrounder to the unfathomable depths of the Trump cohert perfidy I follow the author on Twitter which is both a plus and a minus - PLUS: you know what has been going on before most general public MINUS: your ability to be shocked and outraged by Trump and his cohort gets dissipated. However, reading (and listening) to it all packed into book form brings it all back. You find yourself saying "Oh ... I forgot about that!" but most of the time it is putting meat on the bones of what Seth has already surfaced via his Twitter account. The thing I most appreciate, intellectually, about Seth's books, is the metajournalism approach of gathering together the articles and journalistic endeavours from around the world to tell the story - items that on their own are often remarkable but get drowned out or forgotten, but when put together support and expand their importance as a historical record, and a warning for a future where Trump has a 2nd term and doesn't have to be constrained by standing for re-election. The thing I most appreciate, emotionally, about THIS book, is, strangely, the Epilogue. I know from his Twitter feed that Seth is a passionate human being when it comes to human rights and equity - legal, racial, financial, womens, animal etc. etc., but generally with the journalistic side he tries to present "just the facts ma'am" and the supporting information. But the Epilogue - WOW! I admit I cried in the audio book when the Narrator (who is excellent) read the #SayTheirNames section of a selection of the names of "seemingly numberless men, women, and children of color who have been unjustly killed by police...". This segment is an author untethered to using just cold hard facts, but who is unleashing his depth of understanding of the dangers of another 4 years of Trumpism, which he has gained via the years of plunging into the bottomless greed and lack of empathy that characterises Trump and his enablers, both in the USA and internationally. Most of us have a surface or single focus understanding of the harms already done, but the author has put all of the "known" horrors together, and US voters will ignore what that could mean with another term, and therefore the immiment peril to their democracy and freedom.

    I enjoyed Seth Abramson's first two books of his "Proof of" trilogy concerning the collusion, conspiracies and corruption in the Trump administration. With Proof of Corruption the series ends and while I'm sad to see the series end I'm not sad to see what many of us hope is the end of the Trump administration. Proof of Corruption is not a quick read. Abramson not only has extensive indices (40 pages at the end of the book) that give credit to each and every source, he cites pertinent information I enjoyed Seth Abramson's first two books of his "Proof of" trilogy concerning the collusion, conspiracies and corruption in the Trump administration. With Proof of Corruption the series ends and while I'm sad to see the series end I'm not sad to see what many of us hope is the end of the Trump administration. Proof of Corruption is not a quick read. Abramson not only has extensive indices (40 pages at the end of the book) that give credit to each and every source, he cites pertinent information from each source and then ties it all together. Specific chapters are devoted to each of the individuals and situations that point to the corruption in this current administration. While the book and information is straight forward, the chapter on COVID and the horrifically bad response from Trump is heart breaking, especially in light of Trump's own confession to Bob Woodward about playing down the extent and known devastation of the disease. That there were indications Trump ignored as far back as October 2019 is nothing short of criminal as Abramson lays it out. I can see in the future this book being required reading for any American history class....if our country survives Mr. Trump.

    Like the other two books in the PROOF series, this one jumps around all over the place weaving together the complexity of Trump's (insane) corruption citing major media reports. I like Seth and I applaud his work when it comes to trying to put together a cohesive narrative of all of Trump's criming but it's often quite hard to follow simply due to the lack of cohesion. The good news is that, of the 3 PROOF books, this one is the most cohesive and probably the best written.

No easy feat in untangling the rat's nest of criminality from the Trump Crime Family. 5/5 for content 3/5 for authoring 4/5 for content organization 4/5 overall. If you're a Trump-Russia saga die hard, the PROOF series should be required reading. For everyone else, just listen to the podcast.

    More tales of Trump malfeasance on a large scale, covering mostly the time in office up to and including the Covid response. As this is fairly long, I am guilty of fast forwarding a few times on highly trodden material, and that’s the issue is that this feels often as a regurgitation of everything that’s already known in one consolidated package. So in that it’s useful but perhaps less so in the new and noteworthy category.
