Driving the news: The publisher says Karl "tells the story of Trump’s downfall, complete with riveting behind-the-scenes accounts of some of the darkest days in the history of the American presidency," and on-record interviews "with central figures ... telling their stories for the first time."

Karl interviewed developer Donald Trump as a rookie reporter for the New York Post, then covered the entire presidency from the front row of the White House briefing room.

  • Karl previewed the book's reporting with an excerpt in The Atlantic, with former Attorney General Bill Barr turning on Trump.
