"An indispensable must-read. This is THE book to read to understand what's going on in the cases against Trump." -- Joy Reid, MSNBC News anchor and host of The ReidOut

A former prosecutor provides an essential guide to ensuring that Donald Trump, and other oligarchs of his ilk, no longer beat the rap, and face serious jail time for their crimes . . .

For a half century Donald Trump has evaded justice. Now he finally faces trials for his lies, cons, and misdeeds--but many fear Trump will never face any real consequences.

Is our system so broken that some people are now above the law?

In Taking Down Trump, Tristan Snell--a former assistant attorney general for New York State who took on and beat Trump in a court of law--argues that Donald Trump can indeed be defeated, and shares his secrets for how to beat him.

Snell led New York State's prosecution of Donald Trump for defrauding hundreds of Trump University students, resulting in Trump having to shell out $25 million to his victims --Trump's first and only major legal loss to date.

Snell lays out 12 key rules for how to beat Trump--including:

  • How voters and activists hold prosecutors accountable
  • How to stand up to Trump's public bullying
  • How to persevere against all the stonewalling and counterattacks
  • How to get key figures to cooperate and cough up critical evidence

Along the way, Snell discusses his own experience prosecuting Trump, and observes how prosecutors in the various cases against Trump are exploiting such rules--or not--as well as how Trump's revolving team of lawyers can be expected to behave, or, more accurately, perform.

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 road map for how America can begin to escape the Trump wilderness of fraud and fascism.
