Can someone heist the majority of the House of Representatives with no one noticing? That's the electoral coup that turns America upside down in The People's House. Until one man notices. Political reporter Jack Sharpe is logging time at the tail end of a disappointing career - jaded about politics and stung by personal hard knocks. But after an odd election result in the Ohio Congressional district he covers, Sharpe stumbles across irregularities that spur him to dig deeper. The story takes him far beyond his corner of Ohio as he discovers an international plot one that strikes at the heart of American democracy by taking advantage of weaknesses in today's political architecture. His reporting leads to a showdown with a philandering Congressman and Presidential contender, and an eccentric but deadly Russian energy baron. In order to save himself and the country, Sharpe must rekindle his old fire to navigate a treacherous journey through danger, betrayal, and atonement. 1. Language: English.

A longtime Washington insider argues that there was one determining factor that threw the election to Donald Trump: FBI Director James Comey's October 28th letter to Congress, sent during the crucial 11 days before election day on November 8, 2016. During the week of October 24, 2016, Hillary Clinton was decisively ahead of Donald Trump in many polls and, more importantly, in the battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Then FBI Director James Comey sent his infamous letter to Congress on October 28, saying the bureau was investigating additional emails that may have been relevant to the Hillary Clinton email case. In The Unmaking of the President 2016, attorney Lanny J. Davis shows how Comey's misguided announcement - just 11 days before the election - swung a significant number of voters toward Trump, winning him an Electoral College victory - and the presidency. Davis traces Clinton's email controversy and Comey's July 2016 appearance before Congress, in which he said the Clinton email matter was effectively closed. From that moment until Comey's late October letter to Congress, Davis says, Clinton was destined to be elected president by substantial popular and electoral vote margins. But the decision to send his October 28 letter, so near to the election, not only violated long-standing justice department policies but also contained no new facts of improper emails at all - just pure speculation. Davis shows state by state, using polls data before October 28, and on election day, how voter support for Hillary Clinton eroded quickly. He proves that had the election been held on October 27, Hillary Clinton would have won the presidency by a substantial margin. Despite so many other issues in the closing days of the campaign - Trump's behavior, the Russian hacking, reports of Clinton momentum in marginal states such as Georgia, Arizona, even Texas - after the October 28 Comey letter, everything changed.

With the end of the Cold War, the victory of liberal democracy was thought to be absolute. Observers declared the end of history, confident in a peaceful, globalized future. But we now know this to be premature. Authoritarianism first returned in Russia, as Putin developed a political system dedicated solely to the consolidation and exercise of power. In the last six years, it has creeped from east to west as nationalism inflames Europe, abetted by Russian propaganda and cyberwarfare. While countries like Poland and Hungary have made hard turns toward authoritarianism, the electoral upsets of 2016 revealed the citizens of the US and UK in revolt against their countries’ longstanding policies and values.But this threat to the West also presents the opportunity to better understand the pillars of our own political order. In this forceful and unsparing work of contemporary history, Snyder goes beyond the headlines to expose the true nature of the threat to democracy. By showcasing the stark choices before us - between equality or oligarchy, individuality or totality, truth and falsehood - Snyder restores our understanding of the basis of our way of life, offering a way forward in a time of terrible uncertainty. 1.
