The Plot to Hack America by Malcolm Nance.
How Putin's Cyber-spies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election. Paperback. From New York Times bestselling author and MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance, here is the shocking, ground-breaking book that first revealed the attempts by Putin's Russia to help Donald Trump becomes President of the United States. First published a month prior to the divisive Trump vs. Clinton 2016 presidential election, this book exposed the Russian hacking before the CIA had written its own report and long before Robert Mueller confirmed for the world the extraordinary efforts made by Russia to help Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton In April 2016, computer technicians at the Democratic National Committee discovered that someone had accessed the organization's computer servers and conducted a theft that is best described as Watergate. The nation's top computer security experts discovered that the cyber thieves had helped themselves to everything: sensitive documents, emails, donor information, even voice mails. Soon after, the Democratic Party, the Democratic congressional campaign, the Clinton campaign, and their friends and allies in the media were also hacked. Western intelligence agencies tracked the hack to Russian spy agencies and dubbed them the "Cyber Bears." The media was soon flooded with the stolen information channeled through Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. It was a massive attack on America, but the Russian hacks appeared to have a singular goal--elect Donald J. Trump as president of the United States.
