We ALL know the premise of the book, “Untouchable: How Powerful People Get Away With It”, it’s always nice to see the fact in print….

Both understood and leveraged money, status, and fear to protect their own interests and to silence or destroy anyone who posed a threat.” Honig doesn’t shy away from the inflammatory assertion that a man who was president acts just like a mob kingpin, and he lays out the similarities….
Will Attorney General Garland read this book?
