Ex-Trump Aide Publishing a Memoir

by | Aug 13, 2020 | News

Rick Gates, former aide to Donald J. Trump’s campaign, whose testimony in the Russia investigation helped convict two powerful advisers to the president, is preparing a memoir that will be published weeks before the 2020 election.

The book, which Post Hill Press plans to release October 13, is likely to arrive at the height of the 2020 election cycle. It comes on the heels of unflattering memoirs from John R. Bolton, former national security adviser, and Trump’s niece Mary L.Trump that are selling briskly despite efforts by Trump administration and family to prevent their release.

Given his proximity to Trump’s campaign, and the evidence he provided against two of Trump’s closest advisers, campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and campaign adviser, Roger J. Stone Jr., Gates’s account is likely to generate interest across the political spectrum.

Gates’s book follows other published editions of Mueller’s investigation last year, which examined whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia’s 2016 election interference operation.

Other books from former Trump aides and associates are in the pipeline, including a memoir tentatively titled “Disloyal: The True Story of Michael Cohen, Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump” by Michael D. Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, who is serving a three-year prison sentence for campaign finance violations and other crimes that were part of an effort to pay for the silence of two women who said they had affairs with Trump.

Next month, Random House will release a book by Andrew Weissmann, the lead prosecutor in the special counsel’s office, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will publish a book about the F.B.I.’s investigation into Russia’s election interference by Peter Strzok, a former F.B.I. deputy assistant director of counterintelligence.
