BOOK: The Russia Hoax

In 2018, Jarrett published the book The Russia Hoax which alleges that “Hillary Clinton’s deep state collaborators in government” engaged in “nefarious actions” to protect Clinton and undermine Trump.[14] The book was an Amazon and New York Times best-seller.[14]President Trump praised the book in a tweet.[15] According to Rolling Stone magazine, the book “amounts to 286 pages of recapping every single bad thing the Clintons have ever been accused of doing (Uranium One is, again, mentioned dozens of times.)… The idea that the Clinton email investigation could be dropped, and the Russia investigation taken up just a few months later isn’t seen as coincidence, but conspiracy, a bit of revenge enacted by an intelligence community full of Clinton fans.”[14] In a review for The Washington Post,Carlos Lozada described the book as a Trump hagiography.[16] PolitiFact rated a number of claims made in Jarrett’s book as false, misleading and unsubstantiated.[17]
