Watch full program below!
Don’t miss these two legendary journalists on what really happened in the final days of the Trump presidency—and how this peril is still with us.
Join #1 internationally bestselling author Bob Woodward and acclaimed reporter Robert Costa as they discuss Peril, their explosive account of one of the most dangerous periods in American history. As they reveal, the fraught transition from President Trump to President Biden was far more than just a domestic political crisis.
Mindy Marqués, Vice President and Executive Editor at Simon & Schuster and the former Executive Editor of the Miami Herald, will moderate.
Woodward and Costa interviewed more than 200 people at the center of the turmoil, resulting in more than 6,000 pages of transcripts—and a spellbinding and definitive portrait of a nation on the brink. Their reporting takes readers deep inside the Trump White House, the Biden White House, the 2020 campaign, and the Pentagon and Congress, with vivid, eyewitness accounts of events that have been hidden from the public until now.
Peril is supplemented throughout with never-before-seen material from secret orders, transcripts of confidential calls, diaries, emails, meeting notes and other personal and government records, making for an unparalleled history.
