We urge you to purchase a copy of Jeffrey Toobin’s new book, True Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Investigation of Donald Trump. Jeffrey Toobin will sign books before they are sent to you from Chevalier’s Books.
In conversation with Scott Turow. Purchase his book, The Last Trial, here.
Jeffrey Toobin has the rare gift of pulling you into any story, whether that story is yanked right from the headlines, or from a courtroom. He grabs you with little details that jolt you, with sly observations that make you cringe, shudder, and laugh–even when it’s about the president and the consequences are almost unfathomable.
In his new book, True Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Investigation of Donald Trump, Toobin fleshes out the most improbable, certainly most unbelievable questions of our time: How did Trump get away with his lies and brazen pandering to Russia before he was elected? How did Trump get away with his crimes after he was elected, surrounded by aides who were indicted, found guilty and imprisoned? How did Trump withstand his problems once inside the Oval Office, that he himself created? How did he survive his presidency? And how did his team maneuver his victory over Mueller’s investigation and the subsequent impeachment trial?
Even before his inauguration, Toobin writes, “Trump was boss, stranger, novice, witness, possible security risk, potential subject of criminal investigation, and the president-elect of the United States…” Toobin takes us on the wild ride of this administration, and deep into and beyond that most complex trial. If you think you’ve read it all, you haven’t even started.
In conversation with Scott Turow. Scott Turow is the author of great courtroom thrillers, and the classic nonfiction book, One L, which just about every law student in America has read.
