Investigative journalist Andrea Bernstein is here with a book that is also expected to cause ripples and make news, with her deeply researched new book, American Oligarchs: The Kushners, the Trumps, and the Marriage of Money and Power (W.W. Norton). Hundreds of interviews and over 100,000 pages of documents have gone into this sordid story.
“A sweeping story of two American families … How did these ‘self-made men’ really get made? With donations, favors, intimidation, and other people’s money.” - David Farenthold.
“Anyone concerned about American democracy should read Bernstein’s devastating exposé.” - Jane Mayer.
