House of Trump, House of Putin offers the first comprehensive investigation into the decades-long relationship among Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, and the Russian Mafia that ultimately helped win Trump the White House. It is a chilling story that begins in the 1970s, when Trump made his first splash in the booming, money-drenched world of New York real estate, and ends with Trumps inauguration as president of the United States. That moment was the culmination of Vladimir Putins long mission to undermine Western democracy, a mission that he and his hand-selected group of oligarchs and Mafia kingpins had ensnared Trump in, starting more than twenty years ago with the massive bailout of a string of sensational Trump hotel and casino failures in Atlantic City. This book confirms the most incredible American paranoias about Russian malevolence. To most, it will be a hair-raising revelation that the Cold War did not end in 1991that it merely evolved, with Trumps apartments offering the perfe...

House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia Reviews
This book does an excellent job of explaining how Putin, Russian Intelligence Operations and the Russian Mafia are all intertwined, and how their goal is to destabilize the West. From Syrian refugees in Europe to Brexit and the 2016 election, the Russians have been successful. Trump has been involved with the Russian Oligarchs (one and the same as FSB and Mafia) for decades. Unger explains how these gangsters syphon off money from Russia's natural resources then launder it through real estate in ...more
Ok, there's a lot of stuff about the Russian mob, crooked oligarchs, etc. A lot of this is lifted off books like Robert Friedman's "Red Mafiya". At some point it felt like I was reading a book about the Russian mob instead of about Trump. Did Trump sell a lot of properties to Russians of dubious character? Yes. But the point is, it was legal, there were no laws preventing him from selling his properties to offshore corporations. Did people in his campaign and/or administration have a lot of deal ...more
I'm reposting this because I found a link to an interview with Craig Unger on Youtube that highlights a lot of great detail from this book: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIn2L...
This is the most terrifying horror story that you will ever read. To know that the U.S. has elected a President who is utterly beholding to Putin and Russian interests and is also not just a criminal in his policies but literally A CRIMINAL in the traditional sense of the word. Not as a metaphor. Not in the sense of of ...more
Not fun but certainly fascinating.
OK, make that 7 stars.
I expect loyalty from my cabinet.
My way or the highway...

Sound like mob talk? It did to me. So, I've been wondering if DJT (I won't use his name) has mob ties. This book has the answers and more. This will answer almost all the questions about DJT, V. Putin, and organized crime. (The connections are much much deeper than the average person realizes.)
It's not a fast read. In fact it's very dense with all the Ru ...more
Craig Unger, in his "House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia presents a thesis as to how Donald Trump was compromised by Russian money laundering after having been followed by the Checkoslovakian STB, and later evaluated, targeted, and cultivated by Russians. The book is well researched, written, and replete with the scholarly documentation. Unger's approach focuses on the evolution of the personal connections and mob networks of Donald Trump and hi ...more
Craig Unger convincingly presents the frightening manipulations, lies, conspiracies, murders, greed, foreign incursions by Putin and his oligarchs, and the spread of the Russian mafia into Europe and the U.S. in order to expand the power base and return Russia to what Putin views as the rightful restoration of its past glory and importance in the world. The Russian connections to power brokers and politicians point to collusions on all levels, including to Mr. Trump, wittingly or unwittingly, an ...more
Very thoroughly investigated book that dives deeply into the connection between Trump & Putin.
Although the book sometimes falls into giving the reader a summary of known connections, they do keep the reader interested.
The book reads like an investigative spy journal, and makes the reader sometimes forget that this is actually the hard reality of the world the we currently live in.
Do not expect a memoire. If you are, however, interested in politics than I highly recommend reading this book.
