In "Compromised: Counterintelligence and the Threat of Donald J. Trump," the FBI veteran behind the Russia investigation draws on decades of experience hunting foreign agents in the US to lay bare the threat posed by President Trump.

When he opened the FBI investigation into Russia’s election interference, Peter Strzok had spent more than two decades defending the United States against foreign threats. His career in counterintelligence ended shortly thereafter, when the Trump administration used his private expression of political opinions to force him out of the Bureau in August 2018. But by that time, Strzok had seen more than enough to convince him that the commander in chief had fallen under the sway of America’s adversary in the Kremlin.

In his book, Strzok draws on lessons from a long career—from his role in the Russian illegals case that inspired "The Americans" to his service as lead FBI agent on the Mueller investigation—to construct a devastating account of foreign influence at the highest levels of our government.
