The Plot to Hack America How Putins Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election Author:Malcolm Nance In April of 2016, computer technicians at the Democratic National Committee discovered that someone had accessed the organization?s computer servers. In the days and weeks that followed, they discovered that the cyber thieves had helped themselves to everything: sensitive documents, emails, donor information, even voice mails. It was the modern-... more »day equivalent of the Watergate scandal, but this time, the culprit was Russia?s spy service, and their method a new hybrid cyber warfare: Kompromat.
But why would Vladimir Putin want to tip the scales of an American election? New York Times bestseller Malcolm Nance follows the curious real life spy story through a labyrinth of cyber espionage, the history of Russia?s spy services, and Vladimir Putin?s rise through the KGB from junior officer to Spy-in-Chief. He also details Donald Trump?s many disturbing personal associations with Putin and Russia?s oligarchy—and Trump?s loose affiliation of advisors nicknamed “the Kremlin Crew.?
In The Plot to Hack America we learn how technicians discovered that Russia?s spy agency was responsible for the hack; how the Russians have devastated individuals, political groups, and entire nations with their cyber crimes; and how they may have cultivated Donald Trump as an unwitting asset to facilitate their ultimate foreign policy goals: disband NATO, dominate eastern Europe, and replace America as the world?s superpower.« less
