22 Feb 2021
In Russian, the word, “kompromat,” short for “compromising material,” refers to damaging information that can be used for blackmail or to exert influence. Throughout the Trump presidency, many in Washington wondered if kompromat was at the heart of Trump’s failure to stand up to Russia and Vladimir Putin. Now, former KGB Major Yuri Shvets, who was an active recruiter of American intelligence assets during the 1980s, reveals the shocking truth.
Shvets, the key source for the bombshell bestseller, American Kompromat, tells the story of how Trump was first spotted by the KGB back in 1980 and groomed to pursue a political career. Unpacking a 40-year story that parallels The Manchurian Candidate, with his own insights into the highest levels of Putin’s inner circle, Shvets weaves a real-life political thriller of Russian espionage and influence that reached as high as the White House itself.
