American Carnage: The Wars Of Donald Trump

The Wars of Donald Trump provides the first assessment of the Trump administration’s damage to American governance. The book is not concerned with the investigations of Robert Mueller; the illegal payoffs to the president’s paramours; or the corruption of the Trump family. Instead, it identifies efforts to politicize the military and intelligence communities; the efforts to undermine and degrade essential departments and agencies; and the attacks on science and regulation. The final chapter suggests what is needed to be done to reverse the damage and correct the political process.

“Mel Goodman has spent the last few decades telling us what’s gone wrong with American intelligence and the American military; he is also telling us how to save ourselves.”
—Seymour Hersh, The New Yorker

Trump’s war on whistleblowers

I’m really good at war.” For the past three years, we have witnessed Mr. Trump’s wars on governance, science, national security policy and public service. For the past several days, we have witnessed a new war — a war on whistleblowers that will make it particularly difficult for others to come forward in the future.
