"Is Donald Trump a “traitor”, an agent of a rival foreign power (Russia)?
That is the claim of the former federal prosecutor Kenneth McCallion in his
recently published book Treason & Betrayal. Along the way, McCallion
presents some serious evidence that it is to Russian capitalism that
Trump’s true allegiance lies."

But what is "treason" really, and what are "national interests"?
Is Russian imperialism really a rival to US imperialism?
Has the mainstream of the US capitalist class largely lost control over its
president, or has a new wing of that class simply gained dominance, as Roger
Silverman says?
What does all this mean for the present state of US capitalism?
These are some of the questions indirectly raised in the book by former
federal prosecutor Kenneth McCallion in his book "Treason & Betrayal".
