Power Grab: The Liberal Scheme to Undermine Trump, the GOP, and Our Republic (Hardcover)
A New York Times Bestseller.
How much damage will the Democrats do to our republic in the name of saving it?
In the years he served on and eventually chaired the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Jason Chaffetz gained crucial insight into the inner workings of D.C. Things were bad then, but during the Trump administration, liberals have reached a new level of hysteria and misconduct.
Democrat anger has grown so irrational that it has burst through the constitutional guardrails which protect our institutions and our republic. While they constantly label the right “fascist,” the left imposes policies which suppress speech, limit freedom, and empower federal bullies.
In Power Grab, Chaffetz pulls back the curtain on the world of hypocrisy, political intrigue, and procedural malfeasance that is Washington D.C. With stories you won't read anywhere else, he shows how the left weaves false narratives, drums up investigations in search of a crime, and refuses to direct congressional oversight towards its appropriate target: the government. Democrats weaponize nonprofit advocacy groups and monetize partisan anger to line the pockets of their political allies. They use “voter enrollment” as a smokescreen to hide their plans to destabilize free elections and seek to politicize federal agencies like the Federal Election Commission, the IRS, and the Department of Justice.
It shouldn’t be this way. Democrats have abandoned the wisdom set forth in the Constitution for short-term political wins. Power Grab shows the lengths to which Democrats will go to maintain their grip on power, and how the only thing that will stop them is a return to our founding principles.
About the Author
Jason Chaffetz is an American politician and Fox News contributor. He was elected as a U.S. Representative from Utah in 2008 after spending 16 years in the local business community. When he left Congress in 2017, he was the chairman of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
“In Power Grab, Jason Chaffetz takes us along his path toward a disturbing realization. Even as a seasoned political insider, he was taken aback by the post-Trump American reality in which news was quickly replaced by political theatre and little was as it appeared to be. An organic town hall meeting? It’s co-opted through a highly-organized and potentially dangerous scheme to control the narrative. Altruistic-sounding nonprofits? They’re actually creations intended to obscure donors and questionable motives. Chaffetz exposes a seedy world where a dizzying concoction of players work to manipulate the message— and we’re the target. In Power Grab, there are lessons for all of us, if we are willing to open our eyes.”

“Power Grab will leave you wanting more. Long after you’ll be thinking about the implications of what Jason Chaffetz reveals in this stunning new account of Washington D.C. politics. Readers will never again take Democratic narratives at face value. The duplicity, the hypocrisy, and the flippancy with which they sacrifice the very foundational elements of our government must be fought on every level.”
— Sara A. Carter
“Jason Chaffetz has consistently been in the fight and understands first hand just how power hungry the Democrats have become. Chaffetz lays out the case for how and why Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and their minions will do and say just about anything to tear down and smear hard-working, patriotic Americans that oppose their unrelenting desire to control our lives and press forward with their far-left agenda.”
