A bombshell investigation reveals how Washington really works: politicians extort money from us, then use it to buy each other’s votes. Best-selling author Peter Schweizer reveals: How the Obama Administration targeted industries for criminal investigation but chose not to pursue key political donors. How the Speaker of the House extracts money by soliciting political donations before he will hold crucial votes on the House floor. How politicians extract “campaign contributions” and then convert them to bankroll lavish lifestyles complete with limos, private jets, golf at five-star resorts, fine wines, and cash for family members. How congressmen use a little-known loophole that allows them to secretly link their votes to cash. Extortion finally makes clear why Congress is so dysfunctional: it’s all about making money, not making law.
