Luke Harding, author, senior international correspondent, The Guardian, and former Russia correspondent
Did Donald Trump and his team collude with Russia? Luke Harding believes so and has written a gripping non-fiction thriller which traces Trump’s relationship with Moscow all the way back to the Cold War. These covert links are part of a wider strategy by Russia to subvert western democracies and to reshape the world.
Moscow Bureau Chief for The Guardian from 2007-2011, Luke Harding had personal experience of the KGB’s espionage habits, as they bugged, filmed and followed him. He is the newspaper’s senior international correspondent, and author of a number of books, most notably Mafia State: how one reporter became an enemy of the brutal new Russia (2011), and A Very Expensive Poison: the definitive story of the murder of Litvenenko (2016). He has also written biographies of Julian Assange (WikiLeaks 2011, with David Leigh) and Edward Snowden (The Snowden Files 2014). Collusion is a #1 New York Times best-seller.
