Veteran reporter Susan Glasser warned the Trump administration remains "an active crime scene" in her latest "letter from Biden's Washington" published by The New Yorker.

Glasser noted the number of books already published on the Trump administration.

"Dozens of books have now been published or are in the works which address the covid pandemic, the 2020 Presidential election, and the violent final days of Trump's tenure. The history of the Trump Presidency that I am writing with my husband, Peter Baker, of the Times, already has eighty-nine books in its bibliography; many are excellent reported works by journalists, in addition to the first-person recollections, such as they are, by those who worked with and for Trump," Glasser noted.

She noted there are still books to come by former Vice President Mike Pence, counsellor Kellyanne Conway, son-in-law Jared Kushner and former chief of staff Mark Meadows.

"The bottom line is that the story of the Trump Presidency still has important unanswered questions that the forthcoming pile of books cannot answer. And they have an urgency about them that unanswered questions about past Administrations usually don't, given the ongoing threat to our democracy: Trump is not only preparing to run again but is determined to mold the G.O.P. into a single-issue Party, the ideology of which consists solely of disputing the legitimacy of the election that turned him out of office. The Trump Presidency is not yet, alas, simply a matter for booksellers and book writers; it's an active crime scene," Glasser explained.
