In 2015, a major story broke exposing Hillary Clinton's role in approving the sale of an American uranium company to the Russian state nuclear agency, Rosatom. Not only did the sale of Uranium One put twenty percent of America's domestic uranium supply under the control of Vladimir Putin, there was also evidence that the Clintons themselves had hugely profited from the deal. When presidential candidate Donald Trump made Uranium One the centerpiece of his "Crooked Hillary" attacks, the Clinton team feared its potential to damage Hillary's campaign. Their desperate need to neutralize the issue led them to launch an unprecedented investigation into the Trump campaign's purported ties to Russia. Instead of ending after the election, the investigation grew bigger, eventually leading to the firing of FBI director James Comey and the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. When Mueller failed to find grounds for impeachment, Democrats seized on an ambiguous phone call with the Ukrainian president as a pretext to remove Trump from office. An indispensable guide to the hidden background of recent events, Fallout shows how Putin's bid for nuclear dominance produced a series of political scandals that ultimately posed one of the greatest threats to our democracy in modern American history.
