RussiaGate: Getting to the Core
5 January, 2018

“Fire and Fury,” a new book by Michael Wolff, has cast a spotlight on the inner workings of the Donald Trump White House. Even before its January 5 release date, the book was already sparking controversy and a clash between Trump and Steve Bannon, a former Senior Counselor to the president and one of the book’s most important sources.  

However, “Fire and Fury’s” most important contribution may be the information it provides on the so-called “RussiaGate” investigation and perceptions of Trump within his own White House. Was Trump’s presidential campaign actually just a business venture? Were his alleged ties with Russia really about making money? Journalist Michael Weiss spoke with Hromadske’s Nataliya Gumenyuk to break down the new tell-all book on Trump.
