NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"This book is a triumph."---Walter Isaacson

From Donna Brazile, former DNC chair and legendary political operative, an explosive and revealing new look at the 2016 election: the first insider account of the Russian hacking of the DNC and the missteps by the Clinton campaign and Obama administration that enabled a Trump victory.

In the fallout of the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee--and as chaos threatened to consume the party's convention--Democrats turned to a familiar figure to right the ship: Donna Brazile. Known to millions from her frequent TV appearances, she was no stranger to high stakes and dirty opponents, and the longtime Democratic strategist had a reputation in Washington as a one-stop shop for fixing sticky problems.

What Brazile found at the DNC was unlike anything she had experienced before--and much worse than is commonly known. The party was beset by infighting, scandal, and hubris, while reeling from a brazen and wholly unprecedented attempt by a foreign power to influence the presidential election. Plus, its candidate, Hillary Clinton, faced an opponent who broke every rule in the political playbook.

Packed with never-before-reported revelations about what went down in 2016, Hacks is equal parts campaign thriller, memoir, and roadmap for the future. With Democrats now in the wilderness after this historic defeat, Hacks argues that staying silent about what went wrong helps no one. Only by laying bare the missteps, miscalculations, and crimes of 2016, Brazile contends, will Americans be able to salvage their democracy.

display_description "Donna Brazile's explosive book is the first insider account of the Russian hacking of the DNC and the missteps by the Clinton campaign and Obama administration that enabled Donald Trump's victory. In June 2016 the Washington Post first reported that Russian hackers had penetrated the Democratic National Committee. Barely a month later, these cyber criminals--which the U.S. government later confirmed as Russian intelligence operatives--posted thousands of damaging emails online. These documents seemed to confirm Bernie Sanders supporters' belief that the DNC had become a tool of the Clinton campaign well before the convention. The hacking's fallout was swift and devastating--and the attack wasn't even over. As chaos threatened to consume the party, Democrats turned to a familiar figure to right the ship: Donna Brazile. Known to millions from her frequent TV appearances, Brazile was no stranger to high stakes and dirty opponents. The longtime Democratic strategist had a reputation in Washington as a one-stop shop for fixing sticky problems. What Brazile found at the DNC, however, was unlike anything she had experienced before--and much worse than is commonly known. The party was beset by infighting, scandal, and hubris, while reeling from a brazen and wholly unprecedented attempt by a foreign power to influence the presidential election. Plus, its nominee, Hillary Clinton, faced an opponent who broke every rule in the political playbook. Packed with never-before-reported revelations about what went down in 2016, Hacks is a campaign thriller with vital lessons for anyone who cares about free and fair elections. Only by laying bare the missteps, miscalculations, and crimes of 2016, Brazile contends, will Americans be able to salvage their democracy."--Dust jacket flap.
