My new book on the Trump Coup - and the Jan. 6 Report
I'm writing a special foreword to the Jan. 6 Committee's Report...
Hi, some big news:
I am writing a foreword to the official January 6 Committee Report, and you can order it now — click here:
The January 6th Committee is working on an exhaustive report, which will mark the culmination of its work.
Harper Collins is publishing an official edition of the report, featuring my foreword, with my accounting of Trump’s coup conspiracy to overthrow the election.
Here is the cover!
The only place to get my breakdown of the Coup Conspiracy is in this book. So I encourage you to order it now.
Then you will receive your book when the January 6 Committee releases its official report. The book begins with my new piece on the coup, and then include the entire January 6 Report.
For options, here are several places to order The Jan. 6 Report with my foreword — you can visit Harper Collins’ page at www.melberbook.com or visit:

Now, when will the Committee release this report?
The Chairman recently told Axios the report would be out by next month, “before” the November election. (The initial timeline has also shifted, so it’s possible the date will slide later.)
But under law, the Committee must release a report by the end of its investigation. Its members have repeatedly said they intend to release a detailed report in the Fall. So I want you to know, you are ordering a forthcoming book, and we can’t predict the government’s timeline. (We can’t predict much of anything in the news!)
But there will be a report.
History suggests these reports can be quite influential. That’s why I leaned into this opportunity to lay out the wider case for the coup conspiracy, in a potentially historic publication, and maybe play a small part in confronting the democracy crisis of our time.
Many of you have written me about the challenges we face, whether there is more cause for alarm or hope, and how to defend our democracy. I’m involved in this project because I believe the facts, and a full accounting of recent history, are a vital part of ensuring we don’t repeat it. This is no time for sitting on the sidelines.
So if you can join me in ordering the book, that supports my work right now, and I appreciate it. You can also share this book with friends by email, or on social media, with a message like this (or in your own words):
Check out the forthcoming January 6 Committee Report, with a foreword on the coup conspiracy by MSNBC’s Ari Melber: www.melberbook.com
And if you pass, that’s cool, there are many other great ways to be involved right now — and the report itself will be downloadable online, so by no means is there any “monopoly” here on access to it.
Thanks for reading, for being in touch, and being involved however you choose to be!
P.S. If you have ideas about the report, coup or insurrection, or want me to consider coming to speak in your city for book events, let me know in the comments!
