“To Plea or Not to Plea: The Story of Rick Gates and the Mueller Investigation” (Center Street, $28) details how Gates told the Mueller team that there was no Russian collusion by Donald Trump or his campaign, in spite of pleading guilty himself to two charges in 2018 — conspiracy and lying to the FBI.

Though he did plead guilty, President Trump’s former deputy campaign manager now says it was to protect his family, which Barak explores in her account.

"To Plea or Not to Plea" is out October 29.
