From veteran award-winning investigative journalists Michael Isikoff and Daniel Klaidman, the epic inside story of the prosecution of a president.
In Find Me the Votes, two years of immersive reporting by Isikoff and Klaidman has produced the most authoritative and dramatic account yet of a defeated president’s conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election and how a local Georgia prosecutor—a daughter of the civil rights movement—decided to indict him and his allies for his desperate attempt to hold on to power. From the beginning, Fani Willis saw Donald Trump’s crimes as a voting rights case, and an attempt by the former president to deprive the citizens of Georgia of the franchise, a right for which her forebears had bled.
Isikoff and Klaidman take us deep inside both the nerve center of Trump’s effort to steal the election and the DA’s team of prosecutors as they build their case against the president. Their reporting reveals new information on the plot to criminally seize voting equipment in several states; Sidney Powell’s attempt to obtain preemptive pardons from Trump; and revelatory communications between the president and his co-conspirators. We see the prosecution take shape in Willis’s office in the face of heinous threats of violent retaliation from Trump’s supporters.
With blockbuster original reporting and exclusive access to thousands of secret documents, emails, text messages, and audio recordings, Find Me the Votes is investigative journalism at its finest. The authors also conducted exclusive interviews with key sources in the Trump conspiracy, as well as with the president’s top targets, including Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger and the Fulton County DA’s team–featuring hours of interviews with Fani Willis herself. This is riveting contemporary history, and a lasting account of the prosecution of a president who tested the rule of law as no president ever had before. Isikoff and Klaidman have written a story for the ages.
"Journalism doesn’t get much better—or more relevant—than this. Find Me the Votes exposes the enormity of Donald Trump’s Big Lie that he won the 2020 election—and is filled with disturbing revelations about how he and his allies threatened public servants in Georgia to undermine democracy. It’s a narrative wake-up call--and a hell of a great read."Douglas Brinkley, author of Silent Spring Revolution: John F. Kennedy, Rachel Carson, Lyndon Johnson and the Great Environmental Awakening
“Find me the Votes is a gripping, take-your-breath-away reconstruction of the events surrounding Trump's bizarro fringe circle to help him overturn the Georgia election results. Klaidman and Isikoff’s intimate portrait of Fulton County DA Fani Willis is vivid, astonishing, and unforgettable.”Tina Brown, author of the New York Times bestseller The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor—the Truth and the Turmoil
“Michael Isikoff and Daniel Klaidman, two of the best reporters in journalism, take you on a gripping, eye-popping trip into the case of the State of Georgia v. Donald John Trump. It’s an unbelievable story, except that it really happened.”Evan Thomas, author of Road to Surrender: Three Men and the Countdown to the End of World War II
“Michael Isikoff and Daniel Klaidman have written the perfect book for this moment…One of this book’s most important contributions is to remind us of the breadth and viciousness of the president’s efforts to undermine democracy.”The Guardian
