This is the book Donald Trump doesn’t want you to read
Tristan Snell led New York State’s prosecution of Donald Trump for defrauding thousands of Trump University students, with Trump having to shell out $25 million to his victims — Trump’s first major legal loss.
Yet even though Donald Trump is facing multiple indictments for lies, cons, and grifts, many fear he will never face any real consequences — because he’s gotten away with such misdeeds for 50 years.
Now, in the first book ever from a lawyer who defeated Trump, Snell argues that Donald Trump can be held accountable — and shares the secret playbook.
Snell lays out 12 key rules for how to beat Trump — including:
- How can voters and activists hold prosecutors accountable?
- How do you stand up to Trump’s public bullying?
- How do you persevere against all the stonewalling and counterattacks?
- How do you get a key figure to cooperate and cough up critical evidence?
Along the way, Snell discusses his own experiences prosecuting Trump, and observes how prosecutors in the various cases against Trump are exploiting such rules — or not — as well as how to react to Trump’s revolving team of lawyers.
Whether you’re a concerned citizen, a lawyer or prosecutor, or an activist or advocate, Snell shows how America’s systems can still work to bring even the richest and most powerful to justice, and why those systems are worth preserving and improving. Ultimately, this is a roadmap for how America can begin to escape the Trump wilderness of fraud and fascism.
Tristan Snell is a lawyer and legal commentator featured on MSNBC and CNN, and in the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal. He served as Assistant Attorney General for New York State, where he led the investigation and prosecution of Trump University.
