Overview

Washington insiders operate by a proven credo: when a Peter Schweizer book drops, duck and brace for impact.

For over a decade, the work of five-time New York Times bestselling investigative reporter Peter Schweizer has sent shockwaves through the political universe.

Clinton Cash revealed the Clintons’ international money flow, exposed global corruption, and sparked an FBI investigation. Secret Empires exposed bipartisan corruption and launched congressional investigations. And Throw Them All Out and Extortion prompted passage of the STOCK Act. Indeed, Schweizer’s “follow the money” bombshell revelations have been featured on the front pages of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, and regularly appear on national news programs, including 60 Minutes.

Now Schweizer and his team of seasoned investigators turn their focus to the nation’s top progressives—politicians who strive to acquire more government power to achieve their political ends.

Can they be trusted with more power?

In Profiles in Corruption, Schweizer offers a deep-dive investigation into the private finances, and secrets deals of some of America’s top political leaders. And, as usual, he doesn’t disappoint, with never-before-reported revelations that uncover corruption and abuse of power—all backed up by a mountain of corporate documents and legal filings from around the globe. Learn about how they are making sweetheart deals, generating side income, bending the law to their own benefits, using legislation to advance their own interests, and much more.

Profiles in Corruption contains tomorrow’s headlines.

If you're a lefty you'll hate this book. You'll smear it saying he's right wing bias...that's called truth. Next you'll bash Breitbart. But the book is very, very informative.

WOW! a 1-star review from a troll who, within 48 hours of a book's release, thinks we'll not notice. 1: Trolls can't read. 2: Trolls can't even spell reveiw! 3: Trolls are called trolls for a good reasonl They're trolls! Don't waste yout time! Read the book. You'd learn something if you could actually read. This book is even better than the Clinton book. And, it's even more serious....it's scarier than a Stephen King novel. These people profiled, don't even qualify as trolls, let alone think they're superior to the rest of us. And they think they should be put in control of the nation. Look what they've done in the last dozen years. God Help us! Thanks Peter. God sent you and gave you a purpose. Keep up the good work. Oh, yes! I purchased PROFILES IN CORRUPTION on Tuesday, 10:00am as soon as Barnes and Nobel opened. I'm now on page 257. Gee Lee2761: Don't you wish you could read!?!

I tried to read this with an open mind, but it's written so blatantly biased, with absolutely zero concrete facts. It's a book of nothing but opinions, and it lost me there.

Excellent book and overview of the deep-seated, gangrenous corruption of some prominent Democrats. It is really quite sickening to read about past and current egregious behavior from key figures. Highly recommended!

'Profiles In Corruption' is an exceptionally well-researched book about some vile progressive politicians who some would seem ill-informed about. Some of them want the Office of the President. If you ask, where did Schweizer get all this from? there are 90 pages of notes. Some of the profiles could themselves be extended into books on each if more of their ways were included. The only negative I have about reading this book is that my consumption of antacid increased during the reading. There was a lot that I already knew about some of those profiled but I learned a few more things to want to make me encourage others not to support them.
