Charles Wendell "Chuck" Colson (October 16, 1931 – April 21, 2012) was an Evangelical Christian leader who founded Prison Fellowship, and BreakPoint. He served as Special Counsel to President Richard Nixon from 1969 to 1973. Colson gained notoriety at the height of the Watergate scandal, for being named as one of the Watergate Seven, and pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for attempting to defame Pentagon Papers defendant Daniel Ellsberg. In 1974, he served seven months in the federal Prison in Alabama as the first member of the Nixon administration to be incarcerated for Watergate-related charges. His mid-life conversion to Christianity sparked a radical life change that led to the founding of his non-profit ministry Prison Fellowship to a focus on Christian worldview teaching and training around the world. Colson was also a public speaker and the author of more than 30 books. He was the founder and chairman of The Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview and includes Colson's daily radio commentary, BreakPoint, heard on more than 1,400 outlets across the United States (and continues to be broadcast with an alternating panel from the Colson Center). Colson received 15 honorary doctorates, and in 1993 was awarded the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion, the world's largest annual award in the field of religion, given to a person who "has made an exceptional contribution to affirming life's spiritual dimension"
New York: Flatiron Books, 2018. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xii, , 290 pages. Index. James Brien Comey Jr. (born December 14, 1960) was the 7th Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from 2013 until his dismissal in May 2017. Comey arranged for Daniel Richman, a university professor, to leak to the press a memo he had written after a February 14 private meeting with the president. It said Trump had asked him to end the FBI's investigation into Michael Flynn. The dismissal, the memo, and Comey's Congressional testimony were interpreted by some as evidence of obstruction of justice by the President and became part of an investigation by Robert Mueller, the Special Counsel appointed to probe Russian interference in the 2016 election. On June 14, 2018, DOJ Inspector General Horowitz released his report on the FBI's handling of the Clinton email investigation, which criticized Comey's actions. The report found that high-ranking FBI officials showed "willingness to take official action" to negatively impact the Trump campaign.

George Robert Acworth Conquest (15 July 1917 – 3 August 2015) was an English-American historian. Conquest was noted for his works on Soviet history including The Great Terror: Stalin's Purges of the 1930s (1968). In 1948 Conquest joined the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD), a "propaganda counter-offensive" unit. In 1956, Conquest became writer and historian. In 1968, Conquest published his best-known work, The Great Terror: Stalin's Purge of the Thirties, the first comprehensive research of the Great Purge, which took place in the Soviet Union between 1934 and 1939. The book was based mainly on information which had been made public, either officially or by individuals, during the so-called "Khrushchev Thaw" in the period 1956–64. It also drew on accounts by Russian and Ukrainian émigrés and exiles dating back to the 1930s, and on an analysis of official Soviet documents such as the Soviet census. The most important aspect was that it widened the understanding of the purges beyond the previous focus on the "Moscow trials" of disgraced Communist Party leaders such as Bukharin and Zinoviev.
