Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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 best-selling investigative reporter Peter Schweizer has sent shock waves 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.

There is a certain amount of trust, I believe, when reading any book but especially now with books on politics being published at an alarming rate it is even more important that we trust what is being written. I read with an open mind and trust this author that the information presented is credible and well-researched.
Such an interesting topic for me...And, as my title suggests, the abuse of power does indeed run deep. The author has presented 'corporate documents and legal findings from around the globe' (as stated in the description for the book).
In the book itself, eight politicians are discussed and in detail. Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Eric Garcetti and Sherrod Brown. I will admit that I was interested in Bernie Sanders the most as I am from Vermont. And, with the race for the Democratic nomination in full swing, Elizabeth Warren, and Joe Biden were next on my list.
According to the author this abuse of power comes in different forms. It may be that they use their positions to advance their position; it may be that they use their positions to advance and enrich themselves, using public power for personal gain and the use of the judicial system to right social wrongs. As one may envision, the more power one has, the more abuse of power is possible. And, there are financial ties to special interest.
Am not going into detail about the eight mentioned in this book. I will admit that some were shocking revelations to me. It is amazing what one will do when power is at your beck and call. This book should be on your 'read' list prior to placing your vote in the upcoming Presidential election. The information presented in this one could very well change your thought process. Personally, I do not hold the same ideas about most of these individuals as I did prior to reading this one.
Lots of notes are in the text so one can go to the back of the book, if interested, to check the sources. I thought it was a well researched book from the notes given.
For me, a most interesting read and am glad that I purchased it. The manners in which power has been abused was indeed an eye opener (in some cases) for me. I think we all know that with the accumulation of power, there is the tendency to abuse it. Doesn't make it right but...
Schweizer is an excellent researcher and you can be certain he has done his homework. In SECRET EMPIRES he went after the PLAGUE OF CORRUPTION on both sides of the political aisle, including Senator Mitch McConnell and his wife's ties to the Chinese government.
In PROFILES IN CORRUPTION, Schweizer goes after the Biden 5, using extensive documentation to reveal the network of corrupt tributaries which feed the Washington DC swamp. He also attacks Senator Elizabeth Warren's work on bankruptcy laws, then advising the same corporate clients impacted by those laws. Also put under scrutiny is Senator Amy Klobuchar's interesting habit of taking big money from donors, then introducing laws to benefit those same donors a few days later.
Schweizer's writing reminds one of a fantastic criminal prosecutor, laying down a fast-paced and bullet-proof case for crimes on a scale which will be shocking to the average man or woman who tries to live a moral life. The biggest criminals are those who claim to be better than us.
All Americans should give thanks to Peter Schweizer for the type of journalism that used to be done by our TV and print journalists before they were decimated by the internet.
There just isn’t enough time in a TV segment for Schweizer to lay out all the evidence he has uncovered of terrible corruption among Americas progressive elite! You have to buy the book to believe it
Who has a plan he can make happen?
Is it Biden, Obama, the democrats, America, the federal reserve, the bankers, the big pharma, Gates, the WHO, the Bilderbergers, the world economic forum, the vatican, the CFR, the trilateral commission, the club of Rome, the committee of 300, the royal institute of international affairs, the freemasons, skull and bones, the Rhodes scholars, China, Iran , Russia, the UN?
Wicked Man destroys his wicked world while God lets him. Man is a proud hypocrite that has always rejected God and has a hard heart. Jesus created the world and planned the world. Jesus returns to rule the world after the 7 year tribulation.
