Wednesday morning, President Trump took to Twitter to promote Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett’s book, The Russia Hoax: The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump.
NEW BOOK – A MUST READ! “The Russia Hoax – The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump” by the brilliant Fox News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett. A sad chapter for law enforcement. A rigged system!

Jarrett’s book will be released in late July later this year but it is currently #3 in Amazon’s bestseller list of its Elections subcategory. Although perhaps more interesting is the books Jarrett is currently losing to. In the Elections subcategory, The Russia Hoax is behind another Russian-focused book, David Corn and Michael Isikoff’s Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump. In the Politics and Government subcategory, the top three books are former FBI Director James Comey’s A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership as an audiobook, hardcover, and Kindle.
Jarrett has frequently appeared on Fox News programs like Hannity to opine on Robert Mueller’s investigation and former officials like Comey and former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe. Jarrett has deemed Mueller “unethical” and accused Comey of committing federal felonies.
President Trump has taken to Twitter to promote several books about him and his campaign. Trump has also promoted other books by Fox News personalities, including ones by Brian Kilmeade and (at the time was at Fox News) Eric Bolling.
Jarrett did not respond to a request for comment.
